Where does 'milkteef' come from?
It's a bit of a long story! A few years back, my friend James told me I should be too small to have braces when I had them, and that I ought to still have my milk teeth. He's an Essex boy so you'll understand why the spelling is different. Apparently 'teef' means bitch, in Dutch, which I obviously didn't know about. Also my site has nothing to do with My Milk Toof, as I'd never heard of it!
What's your name?
Emma! Most people do refer to me as 'milkteef' though, which is fine. I just hate it when they use a capital M!
How old are you?
I'm currently 21 years old, and my birthday is November 30th.
How tall are you? How much do you weigh? What size are you?
I'm 5'4", I have no idea what I weigh anymore (it gets unhealthy to obsess over a number on the scales I think) and I'm a UK size 8/10. My shoe size is a UK 5.5 but can go up or down depending on the style of footwear.
What's your skincare routine? Your skin looks really good!
I always make sure I take off my make-up before I go to bed, if I can. I cleanse, tone and moisturise twice daily, but I chop and change products and like to try new things out when my current picks run out! My skin is combination, not oily at all and prone to dryness so I definitely can't skip moisturiser.
How did you get your hair so blonde and keep it in good condition? What products did you use?
I won't lie, it's obviously not going to be in perfect condition if you use bleach! I don't think you'd know it was typical blonde hair if you touched it with your eyes closed though! I used L'oreal Platinum Plus paste and mixed it with their 30% developer (comes in a pink plastic packet), and I use Matrix So Silver shampoo to tone down brassiness. I try to leave conditioner on for longer than I used to, use more leave-in treatments and so on. I did get sick of having hair so light in the colder months so I decided to go back to my natural colour and in turn minimise further damage.
Do you wear coloured contacts? Your eyes are so blue!
I've never worn contacts in my life! I've always wanted brown eyes, though, so I'd love to try them one day.
What nail polishes do you use?
I own too many bottles of the stuff. Most of it is by OPI and Models Own, which are my favourites, but I have a few others too.
What's your make-up routine?
I really don't have a specific routine, it can change weekly. The main brands I use at the moment are MAC, YSL, NARS and Benefit, but loads more too!
How do you do your eyebrows?
My brows are the bane of my life! They've never been particularly thick, and they seem to want to be completely different shapes from one another. I just tweeze them every couple of days to keep them in shape rather than like once a week.
Why did you get a nose job?
Basically, over time, the bump on my nose got more pronounced and stuck out, which was stretching my skin out and causing some of my (awful) headaches. If I touched the skin around it, it would stay red for ages, I couldn't wear sunglasses without being in pain, and so on.
How much did it cost?
I didn't pay for it as it was done on the NHS for medical reasons. I'd probably never have disliked the bump so much if it didn't cause me pain, so it was kind of a double whammy for me.
Why did you have to have it done twice?
The first time it didn't go right, I don't know why- I just think the surgeons didn't know exactly how it would go, so they didn't shave too much off (sounds gross I know!). Thankfully it went perfectly the second time round.
Did it hurt?
Not really, I woke up both times with a sore throat (from the oxygen pipe drying it out) and like I had a cold where I was stuffy. The second time I didn't have packing up my nose, which hurt so much when taken out after my first operation! The thing I hated most, though, was the anaesthetic needle in the vein in my hand, that was left in right up until I was allowed to go home both times. They're so thin and long that they feel like they're going to snap under your skin- not good!
