Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag

I saw this tag on EmilyNoel83’s blog Beauty Broadcast and thought, well I procrastinate like no other…so I’m in!

1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do?
Blow drying my hair. Before my wedding in March, I was really trying to baby my hair in an effort for it to look long and luxurious on my wedding day. I cut out heat styling for the most part and completely eliminated blow drying. I ‘embraced my hair’s natural texture.’ Now that the wedding is over and my hair is still long, I’ve pretty much STILL abandoned blow drying. I’m not mad. My hair is very fine and fragile anyway so I’m sure that my hair doesn’t mind. Plus, I HATE doing it. I end up a sweaty mess.

2. Is washing your make-up brushes something that you do regularly?
Ugh. No. I keep my professional ones clean because I have to but my personal set is a mess. I’m terrible at it. I hate doing it, I hate waiting for them to dry, etc. I know it’s bad and I need to get better at keeping up with it.

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
For my full time job, I’m not allowed to wear nail polish. It’s a blessing and a curse. When I do, do my nails it’s for a weekend or vacation and they usually don’t have time to get chipped. But on the other hand, I don’t get to wear nail polish all the time…which is a bummer.

4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it?

Case and Point

Case and Point


This concept doesn’t even exist in my mind. I have so many of EVERYTHING that it would be REALLY hard for me to run out. It’s just how I roll.

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
My name is Savannah, and I’m a picker. There. I admitted it. I pick at everything and I know you’re not supposed to. I swear it’s a woman thing. I just can’t help myself.

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

Laundry is my nemesis. I hate it. I sadly admit that I’ve gone out and bought new underwear to avoid doing laundry.

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute?
I always think that I’m starting early and getting ready in advance…but I’m still always late. I’ve never been able to quite understand it. I think the problem is that I always give myself too much time so I think ‘I can take my time’ and then I’ll look at the clock and start panicking because I’ve gone too slow

8. Can you commit to spending bans?

I'm an addict

I’m an addict


Again, this concept doesn’t exist in my mind. I will say that I have been making a conscious effort to use up some of my older products before allowing myself to use the newer stuff. That’s about as good as a ‘ban’ as you’re going to get.

9. How organized is your make-up and nail polish collections?

I have the clear

I have the clear


Very , actually. I have a small plastic tote that holds all my nail polish and then my makeup is organized in a nice, rolling set of drawers that I found at Sam’s not too long ago. Before I found the cart, my makeup was a mess and I got fed up. Now everything is arranged by drawers.
1) Tools, larger brushes and primers
2.) Foundations
3.) Concealers and Powders
4.) Cream, loose and single eyeshadows
5.) Liners, eye pencils and mascaras
6.) Blushes
7.) Bronzers and highlighters
8.) Trios, Quads, Smaller Palettes
9. & 10.) Large Palettes

If you have a blog, do this tag! It’s fun! What do you procrastinate at?

Colors of the Rainbow Tag

So there is a video going around YouTube where all the Beauty Girls list their favorite beauty items in all the colors of the Rainbow. Well, why should I miss out on the fun just because I don’t have a YouTube Channel!? I thought it would be a fun little challenge, so here it goes!

Red

Red


Red – MAC Red Lipstick
This was a no brainer. I had to choose a red lipstick and MAC Red is a long time favorite of mine. It’s the perfect cool toned red.
Orange

Orange


Orange – Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
This brush has seriously changed the way I apply foundation. Seriously. The bristles are so soft and densely packed that it gives you the most amazing airbrushed look. I promise. It’s only $9.99 and you won’t regret it.
Yellow

Yellow


Yellow – Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
This has been my favorite moisturizer since the beginning of my makeup career. My skin used to be super duper dry and this always got the job done. Recently my skin has turned into more normal/combination and I don’t use it everyday but I still keep a bottle on hand for the days that I need a little more moisture.
Green

Green


Green – Simple Makeup Wipes
If you haven’t heard of the Simple line, get thee to a drugstore and check it out. All of their products are just like the name suggests. Simple. They contain no junk fillers and fragrances and are perfect for sensitive skin. I’ve used a lot of makeup wipes in my days and they are the ONLY ones that don’t irritate my eyes even a little bit.
Blue

Blue


Blue – Essie Polish in Avenue Maintain
Because of my primary job, I don’t always get to wear nailpolish but when I do, I’m always drawn to blue. This Essie polish is the prettiest, creamy blue and I just adore it.
Indigo

Indigo


Indigo – BH Hollywood Palette
This palette is my new obsession. I’m putting it in the Indigo category because the packaging is indigo and it contains a couple indigo eyeshadows. BH Cosmetics released 3 palettes based on California cities and the Hollywood one quickly became my favorite for it’s bright, fun colors. (I’m actually thinking of doing a series like ‘Nude Week’ where I feature a different look from the palette every day.)
Violet

Violet


Violet – ALL the Violet Eyeshadows
Violet or Purple is my favorite color to wear on the eyes so I knew my choice for violet was going to be an eyeshadow but I simply could not pick just one. Maybe Satellite Dreams by MAC but I don’t want to make all my other purples jealous.

So a random little post but fun nonetheless! You guys try to pick your favorite beauty items in all the colors of the Rainbow. It’s fun and a little more challenging than I thought it would be!

***And YAY for the internet being fixed!!!***
