Would You Rather...? | Beauty TAG
I've never actually done a tag on my blog so I thought I would do one today because I think they're really fun and it's a good way to find things out about a person. I'm going to do the Would You Rather tag (beauty edition) because I am the worst at making decisions so I thought I'd challenge myself. I tag everyone reading this, let me know if you do this tag yourself.
1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I only have a couple of palettes and the only one I use is my Naked 3 but I only use that every so often. I don't wear eyeshadow that much; I tend to stick to eyeliner only. Mascara really pulls a look together and eyeliner is my one staple piece of makeup. I feel so much better about myself when I've got a simple black line on my eyelid. Weird, right? So I'd much prefer to lose all of my eyeshadows.
2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
I wouldn't cut my hair! Obviously if it was for a good cause (for example, if people sponsered me and the money went to charity or it was used to create wigs etc for cancer patients) then I would cut all my hair off but if it was just a casual trip to the hairdressers, I would never get rid of my hair. My hair is literally my baby. I even hate just having a trim!
3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Probably a pink cheek because I think pink blusher compliments my skin tone better. However, I'm not a huge blush person anyway so if I do wear it, it's very subtle so it wouldn't even matter.
4.) If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
CLOTHES! I went through a stage of only buying makeup and I was wearing the same outfits over and over again but once I got into the swing of shopping for clothes, I barely ever bought a makeup product again. It's nice to treat yourself with new makeup but I've taught myself to only buy it when I need it. Now I find myself scrolling through H&M, New Look and Topshop's websites for hours.
5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
This is a really hard one because, even though I don't really wear lipstick, I was trying to think which one would be easier to apply. If you had to use a typical lipstick bullet as eyeliner, it would be so hard to control whereas eyeliner as lipstick could possibly work if you used a nude colour. So I think I'd rather use eyeliner as lipstick.
6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
We don't have Sephora in the UK so I'd rather shop in Mac because I've never shopped in Sephora so I wouldn't really feel like I'm missing out on anything.
7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
One lip colour for definite! Lipstick doesn't really suit me and I always use the same generic pink colour if I ever do put anything on my lips. Eyeshadow wouldn't look very nice if you could only use one colour because it would look pretty boring and it's nice to blend colours together.
8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Winter clothes in summer because I practically do that anyway... I wear jumpers all year round but I opt for thinner ones in the summer so I can keep cool. If you wore summer clothes in winter, surely you'd freeze?!
9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Bright nails, dark nails do look nice in the winter, but bright colours make a statement and they can really brighten up a dark outfit.
10.) Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?
Probably my favourite lip product because, like I said before, I don't really use many lip products and I always focus on my eyes when I do my makeup because they are my favourite feature.
11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
A ponytail because I can never get my messy bun to go right! Also, my hair is pretty long and thick so if I ever do wear my hair up in a bun (when I'm at home) it always falls out and my bun goes into a strange wrapped up half-ponytail and it gets super annoying whereas with a ponytail you don't have to mess with it as much.
12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
I don't paint my nails anyway because I bite them (a disgusting habit, I know, I'm trying to get better!) so they're always too short so when I paint them they look ridiculous! The only time I ever have nail varnish on is if I'm wearing acrylic nails or when my nails are at a decent length - when my nails are painted I don't bite them as much. I like to wear lipgloss instead of lipstick because it's easier to maintain.
13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
This is literally the hardest question from this tag. Good brow game makes everything look better but if you shaved them off, would you still be able to draw them on with a regular eyebrow pencil? Wriggling out of the question like a boss.
Also, eyebrows grow back! Eyebrows drawn in with sharpie would look ridiculous and imagine how long it would take to come off.
14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
Without nail polish for sure! I mentioned this earlier but I don't wear nail varnish so it wouldn't be a big deal but I love makeup. It makes me feel ten times more confident and it's so fun to experiment with different eyeshadows and colours.
I hope you enjoyed this little tag. My next post for my Revision & Study Tips series will go up tomorrow. I tag everyone reading this, like I said before! Hope you're having a good day and I'll speak to you soon. x
