The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag

The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag

ยฉ mapelc

I haven’t done beauty tags in a while now, so when I saw the Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag on Makeup Savvy, I thought eh why not? ๐Ÿ˜› It’s Sunday after all!

1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do?
Err…that would be hair removal. I have quite hairy arms (not very visible due to fine hairs, but still) that I’d rather cover with long-sleeved tops or jackets. I have the tools for hair removal but, oh let’s just call a spade a spade, I’m LAZY. Okay, after I write this post, I’m zapping the hair off.

2. Is washing your make-up brushes something that you do regularly?
I wished I could say yes but, er, no. I don’t have an excuse really; I have bottles of the Daiso brush cleaner stocked up like it’s the end of the world tomorrow but I’m still as lazy as arse. At best I wash mine twice a month. I used to wash my brushes weekly but life got in the way (i.e I was lazy). I spot-clean my eye makeup brushes every time I use them though with the MAC Brush Cleaner. Does that count as regular? ๐Ÿ˜›

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
Two days, max. I hate chipped nail polish and once I see a chip, if possible, all of the nail polish will be removed immediately (even though the chip is only on one finger). I can’t stand looking at nail polish and cannot understand how women can have them on for so long. I often see a lot of women with nail polish so faded that you’d only see a small patch of it left on the nails. Why not to remove them all? It’s so untidy! Naked nails look so much better.

4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it?
Ooh this is a toughie. If I need it, I got to have it ASAP. Unless the product is much more expensive in Australia and I’d need to get it online; if not, then I’d much rather get it here. If it’s something I really need, delayed gratification be damned. Then again, it’s rare that I stumble upon something I really need, unless it’s toothpaste. ๐Ÿ˜›

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Picking on my hang nails. I know! Trรจs disgusting! When I’m anxious about something, I subconsciously pick at the skin around my nail (especially on the thumbs). I tend to pick on the skin till it bleeds. I’ve been doing this since I was young and it’s a habit I find extremely difficult to shake off. This is why the cuticles on my thumbs are atrocious.

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?
Culling my wardrobe! I have extremely limited wardrobe space due to our small living conditions so I cannot have anything new without taking something out. I have 3 bags of clothes I’m supposed to bring to Salvos sitting in my home office for MONTHS. I blame LMFF; made me buy more clothes I don’t need but really, really want. Ahem. ๐Ÿ˜›

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute?
If I can help it, I don’t. If it’s a special occasion that I need to dress up for, I give myself an hour to shower, get dressed, do the whole skincare thing and makeup. I spend at least 30 minutes on makeup if I need to do up a full face. This gives me some margin for errors (especially when I need to apply liquid eyeliner). If it’s just the weekend and I don’t need to do much, 30 mins will do. I can’t do last minute getting ready because I will almost always forget to take something with me. My anxiety level will increase and #5 (see above) will happen.

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
Hahaha I try. Keyword is TRY. My spending bans work from time to time. Sometimes it doesn’t. I’m supposed to be on a spending ban in April (even made myself accountable to LeGeeque that I’m not to buy anything) but that didn’t happen. But during the times I’m actually committed about it, I don’t spend on anything, even food. I’m weird like that.

9. How organised is your make-up and nail polish collections?
I’m not as organised as a lot of beauty bloggers and YouTube makeup gurus with their fancypants see-through makeup drawers (how the heck do they keep their stuff so neat?) but I suppose I am quite organised in keeping my makeup in wooden IKEA drawers. I create makeshift dividers from styrofoam to keep my makeup pencils and mascaras apart. Unfortunately, my makeup drawers are now looking mighty messy with makeup I’ve been keeping for yonks so I’ll need to do a bit of culling very soon.

And I’m done! As you can tell, the gist of this post is “Tine is one lazy bugger”. *peace sign*

I tag you, you and YOU. Now go do this too and let me know in the comments below if you’ve done the Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag as well so that I may read it too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, and before I go, I’d like to wish everyone who’s a mother (whether you’re a mother, father who’s also a mum, mother to humans, mother to pets and so on) a very happy Mother’s Day! Hope you have a great one today. x

  2. Tine, I like how you make mother to a pet count lol. I guess now I can celebrate as well. I haven’t done this tag, but it seems like a fun one. I should put it on my list to do.

      But of course! If you have pets, you take care of them and you’re essentially their mum! You should totally celebrate Mother’s Day too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It seems to be a good tag to do . I may go to do it. I’m also sort of lazy person but I love to organise my things neatly and it’s actually one of the things I ll do every few weeks. Lol.

    1. Tine

      Michelle, you blog too?? You didn’t link it to your name! If you blog, do share the link ๐Ÿ™‚

      Noooo! 3 months? If I was there with you, I’d chase after you with a cotton pad in one hand and a nail polish remover in the other! ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. Joyce (bronzerbunny)

        lol! Thankfully, i think the 3 months was on toes. It definitely wears off on my hands before then, but i think i managed at least two lolol. Groan. I removed my polish last night though! and it had only been on for maybe 10 days ๐Ÿ™‚ GO ME

        1. Joyce (bronzerbunny)

          also, my real bad habit is picking the dry skin on my lips ๐Ÿ™ and they’re so dry all the time ๐Ÿ™

    It was a fun tag I enjoyed reading your answers ! I can relate to removing hair from my arms and picking on hanging nails if I see some extra skin around my nails for some odd reason my whole attention diverts towards it and I try to pick it up but slowly I am trying to stop this because it results in swelling around my nails and sometimes it hurts too.

    1. Tine

      OMG me too! It’s such a horrid habit to have, picking on hangnail but whenever I’ve anxious about something, I automatically do it. Sometimes I don’t even realise I’m picking at it so much till it bleeds. Many times when my husband sees me doing it (and I wouldn’t even know I’m doing it), he has to hold my hands down and tell me to stop it. By then I’d already cause it to bleed. Again, I wouldn’t even know! >.<

    Certainly appreciate your honesty!

    Overall, I think your ‘report’ card came out quite good – definitely a PASS – I know my mark would be behind yours!

    I’m with you on point 3. If nail polish chips, please, GET IT OFF!

    And I hope you had a lovely Mothers Day – being a mum to a pet (my elderly friend wont let his dog be called a pet or a dog – it’s Heidi!). You might appreciate this extract from a friends post about mothers day……..

    “Unfortunately though,the whole “Happy Mothers Day” can sometimes be directed towards the straight down the line,black and white,plain-jane,natural mother only type – yet in this day and age,we know that life is a little more grey in shading!

    My life as a step mum falls into this category, so does my life of having had and lost children at different stages of pregnancies,resulting in no living children to celebrate with. Also as a shade of grey, are woman who cannot have children,don’t want children,have pets as their kids,gay couples who want to celebrate, and literally hundreds of other scenarios that can be listed,and we each have our very own story to tell……”

      Love your comment, Karen! I agree, every woman has their own story to tell. It’s not just natural mother types anymore. A lot of people don’t realise that they play a mothering role in their lives whether it’s to their own kids or not. They too should be celebrated on Mother’s Day.

      PS: Back to the post, yay, glad I passed! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Oh my…. number 6.
