Oh, hello again!
I missed yesterday's Blog Everyday in May topic, and today's topic isn't something that I feel I'd have much to say about. As much as I love the idea of being eco-friendly and do try, within reason, to be eco-friendly myself; I don't think I'd be able to write a whole post on it.
So instead, I'm taking inspiration from the lovely Kayleigh Johnson at CoutureGirl (one of my favourite beauty blogs, check her page out) and doing a 'Would you rather? Beauty edition' post as I think it's fun to do and it gives readers an insight into the bloggers life and personality! So here goes...
Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip-glosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I very rarely wear eye-shadows so this isn't a hard decision for me! I wear eye-liner religiously. I've worn it everyday since I was about 14 or 15 and I actually feel naked without my feline-esque flicks! As for lipsticks or lipglosses, I've recently become a huge fan and tend to wear some form of lip-stain everyday as well as carrying a lip-gloss around with me at all times.
Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
A few months ago I would of said 'never cut it again' for sure but my hair has been in such poor condition lately (I once found a hair with TEN split-ends... I'm not even exaggerating!) that I had to have 8" cut off just so that I could, in theory, start again. Although I miss my long hair a silly amount, my hair is in much better condition and I know that in the long run it's definitely worth it.
Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
I've been using a coral toned blusher for the last few months and I really don't think it looks good on me. I'm so pale and I think that pink cheeks work better with fair skin, whereas a coral coloured blusher would suit someone a bit more sun-kissed So I'd definitely have to say pink, but a rosy pink, not bright as that can look very trashy.
If you had £1000 to spend, Would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
This is the easiest question so far, for me! I always need clothes and rarely buy them, whereas I pick up my make-up items every week. I'm sick of my wardrobe as it's so worn out (I've got items in there that I've had for over 5 years, and still wear a lot) so I'd definitely raid New Look, Topshop and H&M!
Would you rather apply lipstick as eye-liner or eye-liner as lipsticks?
I can't imagine applying lipstick as an eye-liner; it's so thick and the complete wrong consistency. Having said that, eye-liner as lipstick is a strange idea too but I think it'd work better, especially if you used a chunky, coloured eye-liner pencil.
Would you rather only use one eye-shadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
This one is actually quite tricky as, although I don't wear it often, I think eye-shadow can really define somebody's face and draw attention to - what is usually - the best feature on someone's face. I prefer my eyes to my lips, but I'd still say that I'd rather be able to change my lip colour as I could stick with smoky eyes on a night-time and wear no eye-shadow during the day. But lip colour is so versatile and there's a colour for every mood and occasion.
Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
I'm quite self-conscious of my body so this is easy for me; I'd rather wear a chunky knit over a vest top with some nice jeans, or a skirt with some thick tights and some cute ankle boots. To be honest, that's pretty much what I wear all year round anyway! Plus, living in the North-East, summer is very short lived so it'd be a lot more practical to wear winter clothes all year round.
Would you rather dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Hmm, I don't wear nail polish all that often so this is difficult too... I tend to go for dark pinks, purples or nudes. I've never tried really dark shades or really bright shades as my nails are horrible and I don't really like to draw attention to them. So I'm really not sure for this one, I guess I'd just say neutral tones.
Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or your favourite eye product?
Definitely my favourite lip product. I'd much rather leave the house with mascara and eye-liner on but bare lipped, than with a bright lipstick on but no mascara, etc. I can't live without eye-liner and mascara so it's a really easy one for me!
Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a pony tail or a messy bun?
I don't really tie my hair up much (especially now that it's in a bob!) but I think a ponytail is a lot more versatile than a messy bun. I wouldn't go to a job interview or a wedding with my hair in a messy bun but I think a ponytail would be much more acceptable, plus you could have it long, sleek and straight or natural and wavy.
Would your rather never being able to paint your nails again or never use lip-gloss?
I'd actually have to say I'd rather never paint my nails again, so long as I'd be allowed to use a clear polish as I think nails without a bit of shine look horrible. But I love lip-gloss, I just think it looks nice and fresh.
Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? or sharpie them in everyday?
As hideous as sharpie eye-brows are, I'd have to do it nonetheless! Imagine having no eye-brows?! I think they really shape your face and I always subtly pencil mine in anyway, and I feel really embarrassed when I'm out and about and I realise "I've forgotten my eye-brows!" so I'd have to colour them in rather than have none at all, definitely.
Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
Easy peasy, no nail polish! Simples.
Anyway, I hope you've enjoyed this post. Let me know what you think of my answers!
