The Makeup Addict Tag!

Hello everyone!

I was recently tagged by the lovely Jaq from LazyDaysBeauty to do the Makeup Addict Tag! I love a good tag blog post so this is something right up my street! I'm also not feeling all that inspired this week, so this is a good round off for the week!

What product do you still keep buying more of despite having plenty in your collection?
Nail polishes. I've got at least 50 of all sorts of brands and colours, but I have sooo many red ones!

What's the one product you can't live without?
Mascara. I live for that on days were my eyes just look naked!

Favourite makeup brand?
Collection 2000 and Rimmel. Collection have great products for prices, as do Rimmel. They are the ones I will always go to first in a store.

How big is your makeup collection?
I dread to think. This time last year it would have been about 10-20 products, all of which were almost used up or broken. Now there must be a good 200 individual products, half of which are brand new and have only been used for swatching so far!

And how do you like to store it?
I have two drawers of my desk allocated to the best part of the collection, but I have some metal storage drawers for my every day things and brushes.

How many items of makeup have you got in your handbag at the moment?
Only two. A pressed powder and a powder brush. I don't carry anything else with me as I'm not the kind of girl who will 'top it up' at the end of the day. 

If you could raid another blogger's stash, who would it be?
Tanya Burr. She always has amazing products ready for her tutorials, so I guess her collection is pretty large! 

How long does your usual makeup routine take and how many products do you use?
It can take about 10 minutes or just under for day to day wear. I use 6 products and 4 brushes!

Have you ever bought makeup knowing you wouldn't use it?
Yes all the time. Oh a new eye shadow because a blogger recommended it / it's cheap / it's been hyped up. Happens all the time. 

Tag a few other makeup addicts to do the tag!
I'm tagging these lovelies:
Bea from As Seen By Bea
Gemma from Touch of Belle
Abbie from Not Just a Curl

And of course, if you want to do this tag, then do it! Let me know in the comments if you've done it so I can have a read :) Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
