Want to know more of Mimi?...The Beauty Blogger Tag

The Beauty Blogger Tag Questionnaire

My lovely friend Laura over at Naileymabob tagged me in this fab questionnaire.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Arrrh my hair is naturaly really curly and thick....not the lovely tumbling curls you see on the beautiful Beyone or some Lloreal hair model....think more early days jon bon jovi/ slash from guns n roses and you might be close lol....thank god for hair straightners!

2. What is your natural hair colour?
My natural colour is light brown.

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I have a lovely hairdresser friend of mine come and do mine...ususally my mum and I have our hair done at the same time...Beccy puts my colour on first..waits for it to 'take', does my mums hair colour red then finishes works out to a good few hours!

4. Do you wear the same style every day or do you change it?
I mostly wear my hair in a ponytail because I damaged my hair a lot with the bleach and over use of straightners...but I try and switch it up a bit.

5. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do my own manicures...its something I adore doing so I don't really trust anyone else to do them how I like them.

6. How often do you change your nail polish?
I say with shame I change it every day! especially now I am blogging, I need to keep up my posts so I kind of need to.

7. Do you polish your toes in winter or just in the summer?
I am so lazy with my we speak I did a cute neon skittle on my toes...with glitter and everything but I accidently dinged it and I still haven't corrected it!  In my defense though it is freezing here in the UK so they have socks permenately covering the summer they are perfection!

8. How long does it take for you to put on your make-up?
About 15-20 mins during the day.

9. What do you do first, face or eyes?
I always do the eyes first, that way I can clean up the excess mess I leave with my eyes...otherwise it would be Ozzy Osbourne eat your heart out!

10. Do you collect make-up or just buy what you need when you need it?
I am a sucker for buying anything new, but my polish addiction takes up all of my money so I mostly buy what I need at the moment (tooooo many collections coming out!)

11. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I used to wear the tiny individual lashes that I learnt to apply fairness they always looked really natural as I HATE the crazy heavy look some girls wear.  I haven't worn them for ageeeeees though as I cant be bothered but now I think about it I want to apply them again.

12. Do you do a full face of make-up every day?
I guess I do, I don't like the overly made up face, I don't wear foundation, I like BB cream.  I don't tend to wear any make up if I know I am not going out...I would never leave the house without make up on not that cruel to the public!

13. Do you wear make-up when you are home alone or with family?

14. Will you leave the house without make-up?

No I just put on whatever I want on the day.

I am so bad, it isn't that often as I just cant be assed to clear everything out of the one I use all of the time, I do love a nice bag though.
