Beauty Routine Tag


I was tagged by the lovely Sarita Coren of to do this Beauty Routine Tag.

1. Name a beauty routine that you rarely do.

For years, I would venture out into the sun sans sun protection. I thought that sunglasses would be enough coverage for me. I was officially converted after my summer trip to Thailand, when sun spots started making an unannounced appearance on my cheeks. Now, whether it’s pouring, hailing, or the sun shining brightly, I always apply sunscreen before heading out the door.

2. Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?

Since I’m not very good about washing my brushes regularly, I purchase disposable sponge eye shadow applicators and use them in place of an eyeshadow brush. That only leaves my blush brush, which I am definitely going to wash tonight. It’s going to get a nice olive oil bath.

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?

Chipped nail polish is a nuisance to me. I either apply an extra top coat every 2-3 days to prevent chipping or remove my nail polish once my nails start chipping and switch to a new color.

4. How long do you put off buying/replacing a product even if you really need it?

I would definitely freak out if I ran out of makeup remover, or cleanser, or my body oil for that matter. But since I try out different green beauty products, I always having an extra of anything lying around, so I’ve never had to panic and run to the convenience store, unless it’s for contact solution.

5. What is your worst beauty habit?

My worst beauty habit would have to be spending too much time on mascara. Since a have thin lashes, I like to apply several layers on and slowly paint each lash, to prevent clumping. I takes me five minutes to apply on mascara, since you have to let the lashes dry for a bit before applying another coat of mascara. And that is why, I don’t apply mascara if I’m either in a hurry or going to work, since it could be the main cause of my tardiness.

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off all the time?

Thank goodness for online automated payments as I tend to pay bills at the latest point possible!

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute or not?

If it’s just dinner with family or friends, I’m usually done with makeup within 5 minutes. If it’s for a special occasion, then I definitely give my self enough prep time.

8. Can you commit to spending bans?

I would never BAN myself from spending, but I can definitely limit the amount I spend on certain things, or try to finish the current beauty items I have in my cabinet before buying something new to try. However, if there’s  a sale, I would definitely encourage myself to take advantage of it!

9. How organized are your makeup/nail polish collections?

My makeup is either in my makeup bag or sprawled around in my bathroom cabinet. Not much organization there.

10. How long have you gone without writing a blog post.

My longest would be two weeks when I moved back to the U.S. and needed some time to readjust myself.
