1. Is your hair natural curly or straight? I have naturally wavy hair!

2. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon? I’m only 16 so my won’t let me dye my hair, but I get it trimmed at a salon.

3. Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you change it? I am absolutely clueless when it comes to doing my hair, so I usually just brush it and leave it down everyday.

4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon? I am horrible at painting my nails, so I always go to a salon before all of my vacations or special occasions.

5. How often do you change your nail polish? I don’t always wear nail polish, but when I do, I change it after it starts chipping.

6. Do you polish your toes in the winter or just in the summer? I always get a french pedicure whenever I go to the nail salon, and it usually lasts until the next time I go so have a french pedicure 24/7/365!

7. How long does it take for you to put on your makeup? To be honest, I am actually kind of slow when putting on my makeup, so it usually takes me a while even when i’m doing something simple. IOn school days it takes around 20 minutes, but on the weekend I like to wear a little more makeup and enjoy the whole process, so then it takes me around 45 minutes. If it’s a special occasion and I’m going somewhere fancy, then it takes me about an hour or more!

8. What do you do first? Face or eyes? I do my foundation and concealer first, then my eyes, and then I fo back and finish the rest of my face. If I am going to use an eyeshadow that I know has a lot of fallout, then I do my eyes first.

9. Do you collect makeup or just buy what you need when you need it? I would say that I am kind of in between. I definitely have a lot of makeup, but it’s small enough so that I use it all regularly. I research everything before I buy a new product and only buy what I know I am going to like and use.

10. How often do you wear false eyelashes? I have never worn false eyelashes before. Personally, I think they always look very fake and overpowering. I prefer a few coats of a good mascara!

11. Do you do a full face of makeup everyday? Yep!

12. Do you wear makeup when your home alone, or with family? I wear makeup no matter who I am with or what I am doing.

13. Will you leave the house without makeup? I usually don’t just because I love putting it on so much, but if I have to, it’s not the end of the world.

14. How many high-end products do you have? I just counted and I currently own about 20 high-end products. I have a lot of high-end value sets, but I just counted those as 1 product.

15. Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed? I have to wear a uniform to school everyday, but on the weekends I usually just decide what I’m wearing that morning. If it’s a special occasion or I just want to have an extra cute outfit, then I pick it the night before.

16. How often do you change your handbag? To be honest, I don’t really need a handbag that often, but I have 2 everyday ones and then a more fancy one. I usually just pick which one matches with my outfit.

17. What time do you wake up and go to sleep? On school days, I have to get up at 6 and go to bed at 9, but on the weekend I get up around 7 and go to bed around 10.

18. How often or when do you workout? To be honest, I don’t work out very often.

19. Left handed or right handed? I’m a lefty!

20. How tall are you? 5’4:)

21. Do you speak any foreign language? I am in the process of becoming fluent in Spanish.

22. How many pets do you have? I have one cat that I love more than anything in the world:)

23. How often are you on wordpress? I mainly use tumblr, and I just started wordpress so not that often. I pretty much copy what’s on my tumblr and add it here.

24. Do you read comments posted on blogs? I usually don’t read comments about other people’s posts or blogs, but I always read and respond to ones about me!

25. Do you keep a list of products to try as you see other posts? Yes, I have a list on my phone, so when I go shopping I have an idea of what I want to look at. I always make an account on Sephora and other makeup sites, so that I can like products and make a list that way.

26. How did you come up with your Blog name? It’s my name and it’s about makeup and they both start with the letter m!

27. What kind of camera do you use for your photographs? I usually use my phone or my iPad or sometimes I’ll use my Canon camera
