Bethany over at Beauty Junkie on a Budget posted this fun tag the other day so I figured I'd fill it out so you guys an get to know me a little better. Before I get ahead of myself, I am tagging anyone who has an account on Asian Beauty Boards. Please fill it out so we can learn more about you! I'd love it if you comment here too so it doesn't get lost in my Bloglovin feed. :)
1. Is your hair natural curly or straight?
My hair is between wavy and curly like most Filipinos with non-straight hair haha.
2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I always dye my own hair when I do because I have so much hair. I had just the top layer of my hair bleached and dyed once when I was 15 and it cost around $400 for just the thin top layer of my shoulder-length hair...I am never paying that much again for hair. >....>
3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it?
I wear a pretty similar style every day. Almost all of my clothes have metal on them and I seldom wear anything other than black or white. I really like to wear interesting printed skinny jeans on the bottom and a t-shirt or a nicer blouse on top. I wear a lot of biker type jackets too and things that I hand studded. Creepers or high top Louboutin/converse usually.
4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I do my own. I've never seen the point in letting someone else hurt my nails and all the skin surrounding and under them...not to mention I'm afraid of the dermatophytes you can get from nail salons.
5. How often do you change your nail polish?
If I'm too busy with hospital rotations I don't do it at all because wearing gloves 8 hours a day really wears down the nail polish quickly. Otherwise I like to do it maybe once a week when it starts chipping too much.
6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just in the summer?
I'm pretty indifferent during both seasons. I don't usually have to do my toenails very often because polish always stays longer on them, but if they're completely bare I don't mind.
7. How long does it take for you to put on your makeup?
I've gotten it down to around 20 minutes for a full wash, snail cream, CC cream, BB cream, highlighter, blush, eyebrow pencil, mascara or eyeliner, and lip stuff if I'm lucky. Otherwise I'd say 30-45 is a maximum estimate.
8. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
I always do my face first because I want to know how much eye makeup I can get away with based on how much blush came off my brush. I should do eyes first but I don't like the idea of having to apply BB cream around an already finished part of my face.
9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
Haha I'm horrible...I definitely collect it but I am very particular about certain items and won't branch outside of my comfort zone with them. For instance, I will not even bother buying another black liquid liner because I, without a shadow of a doubt, believe that Estee Lauder makes the best liquid eyeliner on the planet.
10. How often do you wear false eyelashes?
I put them on maybe once or twice a year, because to be honest I completely suck at putting them on--my eyes are too round on the upper arch. I also have super oily lids which doesn't help even when I literally just washed. I'd wear them every day if I wasn't so terrible at them.
11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday?
Haha I'm probably the laziest makeup blogger. Because I work in a lab all morning I don't bother with makeup so early in the morning and I'll go half my day with bare face (except snail cream moisturizer). After I get done at the hospital I put makeup on to go to my actual job. I almost always do a full face if I'm going to be at work.
12. Do you wear makeup when your home alone, or with family?
If I don't go anywhere I don't bother, but if pictures are going to be taken I definitely put my face on.
13. Will you leave the house without makeup?
Yes, I do every day basically...it's whether I will stay without makeup or not that is the question. (I always carry makeup with me).
14. How many high-end products do you have?
Depends on how you define high-end. If you mean Western brands, I do own primarily Estee Lauder, Makeup Forever, Lancome, YSL, MAC, and Benefit so I guess I have a lot-ish in that most of my Western makeup is from Sephora, Nordstrom, or Ulta.
15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?
I decide when I'm getting dressed based on how I feel physically because I have some medical issues that affect my daily life. The fact that I live in Alaska also means the weather is terrible and unpredictable so you plan according to the weather in the morning.
16. How often do you change your handbag?
I change purses depending on the outfit colors. I have tons of black purses but none of them last because black is the color I primarily carry so they get worn out too fast. Even my Chrome Hearts purse strap is breaking and I'm afraid to even ask how much it's going to cost to repair the handle. I usually carry my Louis Vuitton with earthy and brown outfits only. I need to find a good black purse to carry but I'm very picky and I don't like gold hardware.
17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep?
I usually wake up around 1-2 hours before my hospital shifts start so anywhere from 4-7 am. I go to sleep almost always at 12, or as late as 3:30. I honestly don't sleep hardly at all and I know it's really unhealthy but I have a lot of stuff to do.
18. How often or when do you workout?
Haha lately not at all though moving boxes up 2 flights of stairs is workout enough I think! I used to go every day between classes. When I get settled into this apartment I hope I can find time to go again.
19. Left handed or right handed?
20. How tall are you?
21. Do you speak any foreign language?
Not fluently haha, but if you hang out with me you'll see that I know a lot of words in a lot of languages. After English I'd say I know more Japanese, Korean, French, and Russian than anything else.
22. How many pets do you have?
I had a dog up until this year, but she was ill and we had to let her go. :( I miss her a lot.
23. How often are you on blogger?
I used to get on every day but lately I haven't had internet nor time! I try to check bloglovin on my phone at least when I'm waiting for things.
24. Do you read comments posted on blogs?
Haha depending on the subject. :)
25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts?
Yes! I go find the products and bookmark them, or I bookmark collections to expect. :)
26. How did you come up with your Blog name?
I'm definitely a princess, and I'm obsessed with samples...it only seemed natural. Besides, I'm not creative enough to come up with something better haha.
27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?
My iPhone >......> I actually do have a camera, too but it's just easier this way.
28. How often do you clean your house?
Up until this week I lived at home, and we have a cleaning lady for that. In my apartment I hope that we will always clean up on the moments so we don't need to do any mass cleaning.
29. What’s your favorite color?
Pink! Everyone thinks black is my favorite color because I dress gothy, but if you see my room you will know that it's definitely pink, and to be more specific I like Barbie pink, as in a blue pink not an orange pink. Lavender is also tied for first place along with black and white. I love pastel lavender!
30. Do you swear?
31. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
It's 3:30 and I should be sleeping but I really missed blogging. My boyfriend is sleeping in my bed haha...I might as well go join him for the hour and a half before he wakes up.
