Beauty Blogger Tag

I was recently tagged by the beautiful Hayley from The Beauty Flash Blog to do the oh so famous Beauty Blogger Tag. These are a little cheesy and naff so bare with me and I'll try my best to make you laugh.

What is your natural hair colour?
So, my hair is naturally dark brown and like most hair, looks lighter in the Summer and darker when it needs a good wash. If you tell me I have black hair, I will probably give you the stink eye.

Do you dye it yourself OR go to a Salon?
I have actually done both in the past- both resulting in either ginger/blonde highlights or patchy red hair. If I am playing it safe with my colour (like a lighter or darker brown) than an easy and quick packet dye always wins.

How often do you wash your hair?
My hair is literally the bain of my life. It gets so oily, so quickly which results in very often washes and lot of dry shampoo. Due to my hair being coloured, me and my Mum absolutely swear by the Aussie Colour Mate line- it's fab for coloured hair and leaves your locks smelling fruity and delicious! Do you guys have any advice or products you would recommend for greasy hair?

Do you wear the same hairstyle everyday OR try and change it up?
As you can probably tell, I am pretty pants when it comes to hair and because of this, majority of the time my hair is either down with a little LUSH Sea Salt Spray OR up in a messy bun. When I am styling it for a night out, I like to use a smaller curling barrel to create tight curls and then brush them out in result of glamorous and shiny locks.

Do you do your own Mani/Pedi OR go to a salon?
This just keeps getting better doesn't it? Well, I am in fact a nervous nail bitter, so my natural nails have never experienced any attention; apart from what they get from my nashers. When I do have a bit of cash to flash, or there's a particular event coming up then of course, like any other girl- I get my nails did.

How long does it take you to do your make-up?
It almost always varies! I can go from being able to do my everyday makeup in 10 minutes, to something for a night out that can take 30 mins. Surprisingly it's never more. One thing I do love to take my time on, is letting my foundation, contour and highlight cook. (If you watch RuPaul you'll understand) If you don't, I'm judging you. 

Do you collect make-up OR buy what you need?
Like most probably answered- both. Guilty I know, but we all at some point have bought make-up for the sake of just having it. A prime example of this is when I go into PRIMARK and convince myself that I need a £1 Kohl Eyeliner; you know, just incase. Then never even use it twice before it disappears. What can I say, make-up is honestly an addiction- like couponing for American mums. 

How often do you wear false eyelashes?
So, as it goes I'm not actually a massive false eyelash kind of gal. I was kindly blessed with Persian genes = naturally long eyelashes, so a couple of coats of mascara usually does the trick- even on a night out. Every now and then when I do get bored of mascara I love to use super long to medium individual lashes; much more natural and effective than false eyelashes with a strip or black band. 

Will you leave the house without make-up?
Yes, the whole shabang- the bun, the sweats and probably even without a bra. I am an absolute scruff when I want to be, and that is very often. I've found that as I've got older, I've started to become more comfortable with my bare face and even prefer it some days. It's important to let your skin breathe!

Do you wear make-up when you're alone/ with your family?
It honestly depends on what I will be doing, or where I will be going. If it's just a standard day in the house where I'm just chilling then I tend to wear no make-up and often don't even get dressed out of my pajamas. As I said, I can be such a lazy scruff sometimes... Okay, all the time.

Do you plan your outfit the night before?
I am literally one of those psycho people that will keep themselves up at night, anxious thinking about silly things- outfits being one of those. I think because I'm not 100% happy with my body image and weight, dressing for my size is essential and therefore in my mind it's impossible to simply just 'chuck anything on'. If I know what I am wearing and I am prepared, then it won't upset me or get me frustrated! Control-freak much?

How often  do you change your handbag?
A lot! My typical go-to accessory is my Vintage Bally Shoulder Bag- the only designer bag I own. It's perfect for day to day stuff like shopping, running errands and socialising but isn't big enough for uni. So, for uni or going to the library I carry my really big shopper style bag from H&M. I am definitely a small bag/ clutch person and even then, I loose my things in small bags.

Do you speak a foreign language?
Unfortunately not, which is definitely a disadvantage in today's world; but I can understand bits of Creole, French and Spanish. When I say bits, I mean small bits.

Do you keep a list of products you want to try from other blogs?
I keep lists for everything honey. My whole notebook is full of them- products I want to try, clothes I want to buy, What I'm going to eat; it;s never-ending. Better yet, nowadays I will screenshot products on my phone and they just accumulate in my photo album.

How did you come up with your blog name?
I'm not really sure how! I guess I'm just really witty and smart- yeah, let's roll with that idea. Only kidding, but I remember throughout Sixth Form I wore 'Morange' by MAC religiously and people started to catch on to it, like people would always say "you always wear that orange lipstick" and it just stuck. So when it was time to transform my blog I figured what better name than the one of my favourite lipstick. It also was fitting because it's not only make-up related, but I was aware that many other beauty blogger, make-up readers and youtubers were familiar with the infamous MAC colour. 

What's your favourite colour?
mm interesting question, so unique. My favourite colour is Green and I don't know why it just is. I don't even own anything green, I just like it and always have from a young age.

So, as tedious as that was to do, it is in fact a great way for you guys to get to know me a little bit- even if it is just what colour my natural hair is. I would like to tag anyone who wants to do this, comment below and I'll go and have a look at your response! Hope you're all having a fab week!
