I love reading other blogger’s tag posts and came across this one earlier today so thought I may as well join in. I had to answer 12 questions, and you can see these answers below!
1. What is your natural hair like?
My natural hair is quite a dirty dark blonde/light brown mousy colour, it’s hard to describe! When my hair is short it has a slight curl/wave in it, but when it’s long these waves drop out leaving my hair pretty much dead straight. Currently my hair is super long and is about down to my waist, so it’s rather straight and flat. It’s also a deep red/purple shade!
2. Do you dye your hair yourself or get it done at the salon?
I normally just buy a box colour (or 2 because my hair is so long!), and then sweet talk my mum until she dyes it for me. Ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you how fast my hair grows, which means my roots are forever showing if I don’t dye them straight away! But because of this if I went to the salon every time my roots showed I would be paying an absolute fortune, boo. Luckily my hair takes to dye very well and I’ve never had any problems with box dye so will probably continue doing it this way!
3. How often do you paint your nails?
I have the worst habit of biting my nails, so my natural nails never come to light. I continuously have acrylic nails done at the salon, and will go back for infills/colour change. I normally change the colour on my nails once every 2 weeks or so, I’m very lazy with my nails!
4. How long do you spend doing your makeup?
It completely depends where I am going to how long it takes me! If I’m just going to work I will only spend a couple of minutes but if I’m going ‘out out’, it can take me AGES. I’m going to do a post on how long it takes me to do my makeup in different scenarios soon, so keep an eye out for that!
5. What do you do first: face or eyes?
I normally do my face first and finish with my eyes, but I will always add eyelid primer half way through my face routine so that it is dry and ready for my eye makeup to be put on!
6. You always wear makeup?
It’s very rare for me to leave my house with absolutely no makeup on at all. A lot of the time (especially in the summer), I won’t want a full face of makeup, so I’ll just add a dust of my favourite powder, some mascara and a touch of eyeliner. Occasionally I will pop out to the shop or to pick something up, with no makeup on, but if I expect to see people on my journey a little bit of makeup always makes me feel better about myself!
7. Do you buy new makeup products even when you don’t need them?
ALL OF THE TIME. I literally can’t resist going into Boots or Superdrug every time I pass them, even if I need nothing, I will always end up walking out with something. I work on a computer all day to so online shopping is a seriously bad habit of mine! I’m also a huge sucker for any deals, especially 3 for 2 or buy one get one half price!
8. How much makeup/beauty products do you own?
A serious serious amount of products. Originally I had a huge box under my bed that was filled with the items I didn’t use daily, and then a regular sized makeup bag. Since then my addiction has seriously grown and I now have that whole box full, a full cupboard in my bedroom, a full sized cupboard downstairs packed to the brim, along with countless boxes, and cosmetic bags full. My family despair of me!
9. How many high-end products do you have?
I have a fair few high-end beauty products that I have collected but no way near as much as some other beauty bloggers I have seen!
10. How long have you been crazy beauty?
I have always loved makeup and beauty items ever since I can remember, but it has only been within the last 3 years or so that my passion for beauty has really flourished. After I started to receive various different beauty boxes and read loads of beauty blogs, that’s when my addiction truly started.
11. Do you always read the comments on your posts and respond to them?
I will always always read any comments and respond to them as soon as I can. I love hearing from you guys!!
12. How is your blog name come about?
My dad always used to call me loula or emi lou la when I was younger, so that’s where it came from!
