The Beauty Bloggers tag

I saw this on Best New Beauty Reviews blog and thought I'd give it a go!

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
Curly, very curly! I tend to straighten it or blow dry it. It's that annoying curly, bushy and frizzly without being defined!
2. What is your natural hair colour?
Light brown with a blonde/auburn tone in the sun.
3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I've done it myself a couple of times but last time I went to the salon to dye it close to my natural colour to sort the roots problem. It's currently growing out subtly so it did the trick!
4. How often do you wash your hair?
Every 2/3 days, I wash it when it gets greasy and try not to do it too often.
5. Do you wear the same style every day or change it?

I'm ashamed to say I normally stick it in a bun when it's half dried and just straighten my fringe. If i feel like it i straighten it and wear it down and only really wear it naturally curly on holidays.

 6. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do my own mani and pedi. I have had gel nails and loved them but I'm avoiding spending the money at the salon again!
7. How often do you change your nail polish?
I tend to change it pretty soon after it shows any chips. Maybe twice a week, I love doing them but I do get impatient if it takes a while to dry.
8. Do you polish your toes in the winter too or just in the summer?
I paint the summer and tend to be lazy enough to let it grow out as it never chips off! 
9. How long does it take to put on your makeup?
Everyday make up has taken me a lot longer since becoming a blogger because I've discovered new products! I'd say about 15/20 minutes and 30/40 for a night out.
10. What do you do first, face or eyes?
Always the face. Then I mess it up with eyeshadow and touch up!
11. Do you 'collect' makeup, or just buy what you need when you need it?
I normally just buy what I need but recently have been too excited and bought new things. I try to finish something or stop using it before I start another, for example I wouldn't have two mascaras open.
12. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I've only worn them once on my birthday night out, I liked them but found them fiddly to get on.
13. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
Most days I will wear foundation, concealer and mascara. I only tend to wear eye make up on special occassion.
14. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?
No, not really. I only put make up on if i'm going out.
15. Will you leave the house without makeup?

Never without mascara. I will go out without a base but don't like to. 

16. How many high end products do you have?
Not many at all, only Benefit products from my birthday. I can't bring myself to spend much on make up.
17. How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
I can't say I ever have as I used to just buy new ones! I intend to start though.
18. do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting dressed?
I tend to decide when I'm getting dressed unless it's a special occassion.
19. How often do you change your handbag?

I'll use the same one all the time unless I'm going on a night out and I use a smaller one.
20. What time do you get up and go to sleep?
On average I'd go to bed at 11pm and wake up at 10am, however, when I'm at uni probably 10.30pm until 7/8am.

21. How often & when do you work out?
I don't, I occasionally swim or go for walks.
22. Left-handed or right-handed?

23. How tall are you?
around 5ft 6. I'm not sure!
24. Do you speak a foreign language?
I did french and spanish at school and learnt Italian last summer, I want to continue with Italian.
25. How many pets do you have?
I don't have any.
26. How often are you on Blogger?
Too often! A few times a day at the moment but I'll settle down when I'm at uni.
27. Do you read the comments posted on blogs?
If I'm interested in the post I might, I always read my own!
28. Do you keep a list of prodcuts to try as you see other posts?
I do, a wish list!

29. How did you come up with your blog name?
I wanted to think of something original and as a fan of Bellini and all things Italian, I searched for others because I wanted it to be unique. Does what it says on the tin.
30. What kind of camera do you use for photographs?
My iphone! I'll invest in a camera at some point but I think it'll be ok for now.
31. How often do you clean your house? (Daily, weekly, other)
At home, I don't tend to clean but tidy a few times a week. At uni I clean the bathroom or kitchen every couple of weeks and my room on the go.
32. What is your favourite colour?
Purple, i love it!
33. What is your favourite beauty/fashion magazine?
I've just subscribed to Glamour and read it regularly.
34. Do you swear?
Around friends it often slips out but not purposefully.
35. what are you doing with the rest of your day?
A friend is coming round for coffee, I'm waiting for a man to come and fix the dishwasher and may sort my uni folders, exciting!

Hope you enjoyed that, I did! Who else is going to do it?!
