Happy Sunday everyone and I hope you've had a great weekend so far! Today it's TAG time, and it's the Would you rather TAG - beauty edition, that I was tagged for by the lovely Jacquelyn at The Little Scottish Corner a while back and it's kind of a cruel tag really since it forces you to choose between different beautiful beauty products. Such impossible choices shouldn't have to be made, but here we go:
1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I'm quite fortunate that I've got long eyelashes, the only problem is that they are blonde - VERY blonde, so you can barely see them, so for me mascara is an absolute staple product I wouldn't want to be without and as long as you've got mascara, eyeliner and a lippy, you're sorted for a sleek and put together look. So this choice is an easy one for me - you can take all my palettes and eyeshadows... but please don't...
2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
I had very short hair when I was very young and I think it's traumatised me in some way since I've since then always had long or very long hair, and since I'm in the middle of Operation Rapunzel, trying to grow it even longer, the answer is pretty clear - let it grow, let it grow, let it grow!
3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
I'm naturally drawn to coral shades, both for lips and blushers. I just think it suits me best both when I have a tan and when my complexion is its usual almost pale blue for a warm, fresh and natural look.
4.) If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Clothes, clothes and CLOTHES since I haven't got a thing to wear, at least I didn't when I opened my wardrobe this morning...
5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Well funny you should ask! You may know that Sleek has an amazing range of pencils in all kinds of shades and one of my favorites is in a dark red tone that I have seen used both as a lip pencil and as an eyeliner, and personally I use it as an eyeliner with a bronze or golden eyeshadow to emphasize my eyes.
6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Didn't even have to think about this one... I couldn't possibly commit to just one brand and I don't necessarily like everything that MAC has so it would need to be Sephora since they have more than just their own stuff.
7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
To me a different lip color can really alter a look from casual to glam, natural to vampy and we all need a little variety to keep things interesting, so I would keep all my lipsticks and probably also get a few new ones and happily only wear one eye shadow for the rest of my life - as long as it's not an outrageous color.
8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
It's a tricky question for me since I love summer and the warmer it is, the better and I'm usually happiest when I'm deep in a desert somewhere, however my most favorite type of outfit is my autumn and winter uniform of leather leggings in varying colors, a jumper and a statement necklace and it's with great sadness that I pack away my leather trousers in the Summer. So I would need to say that I'll wear my winter clothes all year around - and sit in the shades...
9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
This is just mean, how could I possibly choose between dark or bright shades - there's a time and a place for both, but if I really had to decide it would be dark nails.
10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
Favorite lip product because I have too many of them that you could argue that none of them are true real favorites, however my favorite mascara is definitely my favorite mascara, and it's staying right where it is in my makeup bag.
11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Interesting question - I would have chosen a messy bun because I love it and it's so practical, however Him Indoors absolutely hates what he call my Pineapple, so for his sake it would need to be a ponytail.
12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
I'll pass up on a lip gloss any day of the week - truth be told I very rarely use them, there are few that have an amazing non sticky formula and I'm too lazy to use lip glosses on top of a lip stick, so not a big sacrifice really to give this up. Don't even think about taking my nail polishes away from me.... I'll physically fight any one who dares to try!
13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
I have the same issuette with my eye brows as I do with my eyelashes, they have shape but they are so so blonde, and without adding color I basically look like Mona Lisa. It always surprises me how much eye brows do in terms of framing a face and there's absolutely no way EVER that I could be without noticeable eye brows and since I've had plenty of practice with adding color I'll go for the sharpie option - I'm sure it would get fashionable at one point or another and I could say I was leading the way with a new avant-garde look.
14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
La La La La - sorry but I can't hear what you're saying, La La La La. It's a basic human right to have both!
So having been cruelly forced to make a lot of tough decisions, I'd like to hear what the following lovely bloggers would choose if they were put in this horrible position to have to make some tough choice:
Selina from Relationships.College.Love
Sarah from Mybeautysleuth
Emily from British Beauty Addict
Kim from Lipstick and Lightening
Kerry from Dull To Glam
As a beauty junkie I'm amazed that I've managed to get through this TAG and even though some decisions were easier to make than others, I'm still very glad this is in theory only - it is right..? PLEASE SAY it's in theory only!!!!!
