Hey my loves,
Today I bring to you something different. A TAG! I love tags as it’s a way to know more about the person. I took questions from different beauty tag to create something of my own and I hope you guys get to know me a little more.
Let’s jump right into it as this tag is a little long… 🌸
How important is skin care to you?
Skincare is CRUCIAL for me. I used to underestimate the power of having a proper skin care routine and THANK GOD, I am out of denial now. I have my own little routine for the day & night. Read more here…
Do you prefer lipsticks or liquid lipsticks?
As much as I love liquid lipsticks, I will have to choose lipsticks because I can re-apply during the day without making it look cakey and your girl right here is ALWAYS eating. I hate when only the middle part of the liquid lipstick is gone and you can’t apply again because it will look a complete mess.
Matte or Glossy lip?
Lipgloss or lipstick?
Lipstick, lip gloss and I are not good friends. I always end up looking like this because of crazy winds…
Is there a beauty blogger you really wanna meet? 🙋
There are so many people I would LOVE to meet but if I had to choose one I would pick It’sJudysLife/It’sJudyTime. I have been watching her YouTube videos/vlogs for 6 years now. Not only she is a great inspiration for me but also a role model teaching one how to stay humble, down to earth and grateful even when you have everything.
What’s a makeup tip/trick you’ve learned that you now can’t live without?
BAKING! This technique changed my MAKEUP GAME. The oily chanapuri mess I used to be after an hour doing my makeup is now almost oil-free during the whole day. What’s your holy grail makeup trick? Share it with me in the comments down below.
Favorite skin care product?
Tea Tree Serum/Solution.

Aloe Vera Gel
& Rose Water 🌹
Your first makeup product you ever purchased?
I’m not sure but I think it was an eyeliner/ “Kajal” when I was 15.
How much beauty sleep do you get on a regular basis?
I was on holidays for the past 3 months, therefore I used to get approximately 10 hours of sleep. Since I started working, I get 6-7 hours of sleep and no nap time.
How often do you wear nail polish? 💅
Once a month for 5-6 days. As in my religion, you can’t pray with nail polish on, I take advantage when it’s the time of the month to get my nails done for a week. Otherwise, if I have time (which rarely happens) when I have to go to a wedding, I’ll wear some for a few hours.
Describe your go-to makeup look
Eyebrows filled in
Mascara (Loads of)
Bold dark lips
Matte or dewy skin?
MATTE all the way
How much money do you spend on beauty in a month?
It depends. I don’t have a budget to spend on beauty and I don’t spend on beauty products every month.
How do you remove your makeup?
Garnier Micellar Water + Baby Wipes
Describe your hair type/style
Fine/ Thin hair. My style would be straight hair with a middle part after a fresh shampoo and for the next days, a low bun.
Do you wear fake lashes?
Yes, only on special occasions because I take an hour (slight exaggeration) to put them on.
What product or brand do you think is hyped?
KKW Beauty ??
What is the one beauty product you could not go without?
✨ H I G H L I G H T E R ✨
Who is your style inspiration?
I don’t look upon anyone specific. I love to roam around, surf my Pinterest and get inspired to create my own style.
Who is your favorite beauty blogger or YouTuber
It’sJudysLife/ Irene Sarah ❤️
If you could only choose to do one before leaving the house, would you do your hair or your makeup?
HAIR, I would straighten my frizzy hair and a gorgeous pair of sunglasses
What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?
Take your time! Be yourself, don’t feel the need to post every day. Take as much time you need to write/ create something unique that YOU WILL LOVE. It’s all about you. If you are happy with your work, your reader will see it.
What’s your hair type?
It’s naturally wavy
What is your natural hair color?
Dark brown, I think…
Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I used to dye it myself, which was not a good idea. I prefer going to a professional salon. However, for the time being, I’m staying away from any kind of dyes.
How often do you wash your hair?
About twice a week. On the other days, I use (Holy Grail) dry shampoo.
Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
It changes depending on my mood. I may feel nautical one day, super girly another day, maybe a little chic, or another day I may channel my inner Audrey Hepburn.
How long does it take to put on your makeup?
About an hour for a daily look and 2 hours for a wedding look. It really depends on how awake I am in the morning or how distracted I am with the music playing on my laptop or the YouTube videos I’m watching.
What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Face. I’ve tried doing the eyes first, but I like doing my face makeup first instead.
Do you “collect” makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I am a bit of a collector but I research usually before I buy something so I don’t have a crazy collection.
Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
No. Sometimes it’s just the basic things like concealer, powder, blush, and mascara, but if I’m going or have to be at an event, then I definitely wear a full face.
Do you wear makeup when you are home alone (or with family)?
Sometimes (just to practice) but typically not.
Will you leave the house without makeup?
YES!!!! Natural is B E A U T I F U L
How many high-end products do you have?
Do I really need to count? My collection mainly consists of drugstore but I do have higher-end things like HUDA BEAUTY, MAC, etc. I plan to get more high-end products now that I will start earning my own money. COME TO MAMA!!!
How often do you wash your makeup brushes?
Not as often as I should…
Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?
I decide on an outfit the night before if it’s something special, but typically I just wait till morning as sometimes I get a revelation during my sleep.
Left-handed or Right-handed?
How tall are you?
1m59. I know, I look taller in pictures, it’s all about the style and the angle you take the pictures.
Do you speak a foreign language?
Yes, English, French, Urdu/Hindi
How often are you on WordPress/Blogger?
I check it every day but don’t spend as much time on it as I used to.
Do you read the comments posted blogs?
Yeah, I do. I read and respond to all. I love engaging with my readers. (Drop a comment- If you feel like * no pressure* )
How did you come up with your blog name?
It just kind of came to me. I knew I wanted it to be “Islander” something because it represents my beautiful Mauritius Island.
What kind of camera do you use for photographs? 📸
What is your favorite color?
Do you swear?
