The beauty blogger 'Get to know me tag'

Sunday, 29 November 2015


I was recently tagged by Rebecca from Northern Soul Beauty to do the 'Beauty blogger - get to know me tag'. This tag is very different from the other tags that I have done so I hope that you get to learn more about me, my blog and my makeup preferences! Here goes...

Q1) Is your hair naturally straight or curly?


My hair is naturally straight and I have fine hair so it is a pain to get any volume into it! I think whatever hair type you have, you would prefer to have the other one! 


Q2) Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon? 


Recently, I had my hair dyed for the first time and I had it done professionally at  a salon - I wouldn't trust myself to do it!!


Q3) Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?


Generally, I wear it the same everyday! I'm awful in the mornings so I don't have much time to focus on my hair! I go through stages of wearing it half up, half down or just all down. 


Q4) How long does it take you to put on makeup? 


On a weekday, I tend to spend between 5-10minutes on my makeup as I keep it simple. However on the weekend, I like experimenting with different looks so I spend about 20minutes on it! 


Q5) What do you do first? Face or eyes?


I always do my face first because I like to have a good base before applying my eye makeup. Generally, I don't wear extravagant eye makeup which would need to be cleaned up with my face products. On an average day, I just wear mascara and/or eye liner so I do the makeup which takes the most time first. 


Q6) Do you collect makeup or just buy it when you need it?


I definitely collect it!! I'm just so tempted to only buy makeup when I need it! Currently, I'm obsessed with buying new eyeshadows and one person certainly doesn't need the amount that I own! 


Q7) How often do you wear false eyelashes?


Not very often at all!!! I think the last time I wore them was on Halloween and that was only for about 1 hour as they just annoyed me! My issue with false eyelashes is that I can't apply them very well, with practice I'd probably wear them more often! I just find that mascara is so much easier for me! 

Q8) What are your current everyday staples?

At the moment, I'm loving wearing my MAC Matchmaster foundation! It gives me great coverage and helps keep my face relatively matte. Also, as you may know, I wear Velvet Teddy most days because it is such a great nude shade.

Q9) Do you wear makeup when you are at home or with family?

This depends on the situation really. If I'm having a lazy day or just chilling with family, I won't wear any makeup. However, sometimes, I like to put some on if we are doing anything particularly special. 

Q10) How many high-end products do you have?

I don't have a huge collection of makeup as I've only recently started enjoying applying/wearing it but I'd say about 1/3 of it is high-end. 

Q11) Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?

I love to plan my outfits because it saves me time in the morning. By planning, I tend to wear more of my clothes instead of just the same outfit all of the time. 

Q12) How often do you change your handbag?

Usually, as I only really have one everyday handbag, I wouldn't change it at all. However a few days ago, I ordered a new handbag so I will have 2 to choose from, meaning that I will be changing my handbag more often. 

Q13) How often or when do you work out?

I'm quite an active person so I tend to work out nearly everyday. Despite how hard I've tried, I can't get myself into going running so my weekly exercise consists of: mainly badminton, dancing and leading a netball club (which involves me exercising too).

Q14) Left handed or right handed?

I'm right handed.

Q15) How tall are you?

I think I'm about 5'7 or 5'8 but I haven't measured myself in a while.

Q16) Do you speak any foreign languages?

I can speak a bit of French and German. I'd like to be fluent in a language one day! 

Q17) Sweet or savoury?

Definitely savoury! I'd always prefer a savoury snack to a sweet and I don't really like puddings. At a restaurant, if I was ordering 2 courses, I'd have a starter and a main instead of a main and a dessert. However, don't get me wrong, I still devour a bar of chocolate every once in a while.

Q18) What's your favourite perfume?

My all time favourite perfume is 'Fleur d'orange' by Fragonard which is a French brand based in Grasse. When I was younger and still to this day, we travel to Grasse on our summer holiday and smell all of the lovely perfumes in the factory shop. I always have a bottle amongst my other perfumes. 

Q19) How many pets do you have?

I have a gorgeous little Cockapoo called Mabel. She's so sweet although if she sleeps on my bed, she places herself right where my feet go, meaning I have to angle myself away from her! 

Q20) Do you read comments on your blog?

I love receiving comments and I try to reply to every single one of them! 

Q21) Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?

Yeah! I keep a mental list and if a certain product keeps popping up and it looks really good, I will look for it next time I go shopping! 

Q22) How did you come up with your blog name?

I wanted something original and meaningful to me. Knowing that I love the 'life is like a camera' saying, I decided to endeavour to make my life this hypothetical camera and title my blog with it. 

Q23) What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?

I swap and change between my Canon s120, which is a smaller compact one, and my Canon 400D. 

Q24) What's your favourite colour?

My favourite colour has to be mint green! I absolutely love it! In addition to that, I like black/grey/white! So mint green is the pop of colour amongst those. 

Q25) Do you swear?

I'd be lying if I said 'no' to this one! 

Q26) What are you doing with the rest of your day?

Having a PJ day and trying to be productive! I think I might watch a Christmas film later!
