Beauty Blogger Tag

Ahlain beautifuls :] 

I hope you are all doing well. I apologize for not being able to post for the last three days, but I have been so busy with so many things in mind, but I promise I will share lots of fun summer tips and since Ramadan is coming so soon, I will post Ramadan stories and customs that my family and I normally do :) 
In the meantime, I have been tagged by the gorgeous Hannah Bella - a very good beauty blogger, you should check out her beauty blog! it's very informative - to do the Beauty Blogger Tag! so this post should be fun, I love answering beauty-related questions :)
Let's get started!!


  • State that this tag was created by The Beau Bow
  • Tag 5 beauty bloggers
  • Title this as I've done to show what the tag is about.

1) Name a beauty routine you barely do.

- I very rarely get facials, I love getting a facial - I think everybody does - but I just sometimes feel too lazy to go out and get one. I think I should buy a home facial kit.

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

- I try my very best to keep my brushes clean, but unfortunately I do not wash my makeup brushes regularly enough, which is something I knowshould be feeling guilty about. 

3) How long will you last with chipped nail varnish?

- Maybe one minute? ... I hate chipped nail varnish, I feel ugliest with chipped nail varnish. I try to always keep my nails done nicely.

4) How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it (ie. top coat, foundation etc.)?

- I am the type of person to have several products of the same type of beauty product, i.e. several foundations/bb creams/ nail polish but from different brands. This is because I love experimenting with different brands to see which one fits my skin the best, so I normally do not have to replace things quickly, but if I find something good it usually lasts with me a couple of months. Some foundations lasted with me for 12 months, which is really long. 

5) What is your worst beauty habit?

-Growing up my worst habit was biting my nails, but I try to never do that anymore since I hate chipped/not well groomed looking nails now, but I think my worst beauty habit now is probably continuing to touch and pick on acne affected areas, I know I shouldn't do it but I hate it so much and it's irritating :(

6) Name something non beauty related that you put off doing all the time.

- I would say I always put off answering emails :S, I always have so many emails to answer, and I always end up cramming them all up on the same day because I can get a little lazy at times. Thankfully, I have my sister to help me doing some of the replies :) 

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

- Most of the time yes, especially when I have a busy day and if i'm getting ready for a casual day out. If I am getting ready for a party/celebration or any other special occasions, I usually start getting ready very early because I don't like rushing things and forgetting something important for such times.

8) Can you commit to spending bans?

- Yes, I think I can. I've never had a spending ban though :/ .. but my answer is yes :)

9) How organised is your makeup and nail polish collections? 

- I'm a neat freak when it comes to my makeup, so it's pretty organised. but my collection is growing and I'm running out of space :O so right now, it could get messier than usual.

10) What is the longest time you've gone without writing a blog post? 

- On my old blog, it was maybe 1 month? I don't remember! I'm a bloggerholic so I usually blog often.

In the end, I'd like to tag the following 5 beauty bloggers:
