The Beauty Blogger Tag

Hi lovelies, I hope you are all feeling great today. It is sunny but still cold and we are all looking forward to when the winter boots and coats would come off and we can have some fun. Last week I was tagged by the lovely Luchessa from Beauty Expression to do this tag. I love Luchessa a bunch and I love doing tags, but I guess I was putting this one off a bit because I knew it had 32 questions and that meant I had to spend quite some time on it.
But anyway, it is done now and I am glad to have done it. I really do hope you get all the way to the 32nd question. It isn't so boring, I promise {pinky swear}.

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight? Curly. I am half African.

2. What is your natural hair colour? My hair is a little bit weird in that it has always been brown but I have a section at the back of my head that is more black than brown.

3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon? I have never dyed my hair. I have used henna on my hair to add some golden effect but other than that nothing else.

4. Do you wear the same style every day or do you change it? I tend to change things up a bit because wearing the same thing can be boring. So sometimes, I am in office wear other times I am more laid back.

5. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon? I do my own mani/ pedi. I used to have gel nails at some point and went to the salon to do them. But for over a year now I have been doing it myself and I recently got a quick dry polish from Orly so it takes me 1/3 of the time to do my nails now. :)

6. How often do you change your nail polish? It depends on the polish I use. Some of them chip in like 2-3 days while others last longer. It also depends on when I have time after work. I must confess that sometimes I just take the polish off and put on a protective coat and that's it.

7. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer? I polish my toes mostly spring/ summer, less during the winter.

8. How long does it take for you to put on your makeup? It usually takes me about 20-30 mins on weekdays and a bit longer is I am going out on the weekend and want to do eye shadow.

9. What do you do first, face or eyes? I always do my face first because if your base is crappy that day then the makeup in general wouldn't be as good. After my face I do my eyes, eyebrows and then lips.

10. Do you “collect” makeup or just buy what you need when you need it? I would say a little bit of both. Depending on the product, I may have more of them or less. I am always weak towards lipstick because they are all different and almost no 2 lipsticks I found are identical.

11. How often do you wear false eye lashes? Basically, never. I think my lashes on their own are really great and curled up already plus I never got the hang of applying the false lashes. The glue always seemed strange and they would never stick properly so I can wear them all day. So I just didn't bother for a while. recently though I got the duo glue and plan on trying it out this weekend or next when I get the time.

12. Do you do a full face of makeup every day? On a daily basis, I don't use concealer but I always do the a full face which consists of mineral powder foundation, eyebrows, eyes and lips. Eyebrows are a total must if I am going somewhere. I am so in love with how they look when done.

13. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone, or with family? No I don't. I like to have makeup-free days as much as I can.

14. Will you leave the house without makeup? No I would not. I still have some acne scars on my face which I am trying to get rid of so I try to avoid going out without foundation.

15. How many high-end products do you have? Almost all my makeup is high street as I can never give myself enough justification to get high-end. Unless it is much needed or a present from someone.

16. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed? Sometimes, it does happen that I run a plan quickly through my head knowing what I have in my wardrobe, but mostly I just get up and put something together quickly. Special occasions are always planned though (I think basically everyone does that).

17. How often do you change your handbag? During the winter, I almost never change my bag as it goes perfectly with my winter coat. But during spring and summer, I would say every 3rd day although it really depends on what I am wearing.

18. What time do you get up and go to sleep? I work everyday from 9am-6pm so I wake up at 7am weekdays and go to sleep whenever I feel beat which is usually at 11/12pm. On the weekends though I wake up at about 11am and then go to sleep at probably 3am.

19. How often or when do you work out? I usually go to the gym, minimum once a week but recently I have been really busy so I haven't been there in like a month. Going back soon though. :)

20. Left handed or right-handed? Right-handed.

21. How tall are you? I’m average height, about 5’7.

22. Do you speak a foreign language? Yes. Other than English, I speak fluent Russian, basic German and basic Latvian. Totally forgotten French and Spanish but really need to start working on them.

23. How many pets do you have? I have just 1. A Yorkshire dog named 'Candy'. She is absolutely the sweetest and one of the closest friends I have. :)

24. How often are you on blogger? I usually check my blogger about a few times a day but sometimes when I am really busy just once. I have blog posts up whenever I can that could range from 1 time a week (when I am totally swamped) to 4-5 times when I have the time.

25. Do you read comments posted on blogs? Yes, I always see what others have said on the post. Firstly, because if I have a question it is great to sometimes already see the answers in the comments. Secondly, because sometimes I find great bloggers that way. :)

26. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts? Sometimes I do, but other times not really.

27. How did you come up with your blog name? When I was starting out, I wanted to have more of a fashion blog and so I wanted the name to have 'fashion' in it so it is easy to recognize. And then "Cherryfashion" popped up and I thought it sounded great. Now that I have spent a while blogging, I understand that I do not want my blog only about fashion. My blog is about fashion, beauty, life, photography and anything else that interests me. Sometimes, I must admit I consider changing the name but I cannot seem to come up with one I love.

28. What kind of camera do you use for photographs? I use the Samsung GX-20 which I think is a great camera for the price. I am thinking of getting the Canon EOS 5D Mark III in about 1-2 years or whatever is the most recent at that time. 

29. How often do you clean your house? Totally depends on time. 

30. What is your favorite color? I do not have a favourite colour. I like basically all colours, I tend to really fall for things coral or mint but other than that I would totally wear anything green, purple, yellow, blue, neon and others.

31. Do you swear? I try not to, but end up doing it anyway. 

32. What are you doing with the rest of your day? Working, and then probably have sushi dinner as I have not had it in a while.

I would like to tag all my readers who want me to get to know them better. If you do this tag, let me know and I will add you to the list.
