I really enjoyed doing my 50 Facts About Me post the other day so when I saw the Would You Rather Makeup tag I knew I wanted to give it a go. I love playing Would You Rather. I always play it with the girls at work as a boredom buster but the topics we discuss aren’t very “blog suitable” should we say? So here is my makeup tag instead. If you have a blog then why not give it a go? If you don’t then let me know in the comments what you would rather...
Q: Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
A: I think I would definitely have to lose my palettes and eyeshadows because I don’t have many in my collection and I could easily replace them. If I lost my lipsticks, glosses, etc then half of my makeup would be gone. I thought I’d lost my makeup bag once. It was awful! I was in tears until I found it!
Q: Would you rather chop off all of your hair or never be able to cut it again?
A: Oh that’s a hard one. I love long hair but hate it when it’s in bad condition and in desperate need of a cut. I don’t think I suit short hair but then if I did cut it short it would always grow back. I think I’d rather short hair than long scraggly locks.
Q: Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
A: Ask me this 3 years ago and I would have said pink every time. Pink blusher was my make up staple but looking back at old photos I definitely used to overdo it! Nowadays I much prefer a subtle coral cheek, especially when it’s got a nice shimmer on top.
Q: If you had £1000 to spend would you rather buy clothes or make up?
A: I love both so I think I would have to split the money. I wouldn’t necessarily split it equally but I would like to get a mix of both fashion and beauty. Imagine what I could get with £1000! *Daydreams...*
Q: Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?
A: I’d definitely rather apply eyeliner as lipstick. I’m not afraid to experiment with dark colours on my lips so would prefer to rock a gothic look over looking like a pink-eye victim.
Q: Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
A: We don’t have Sephora in the UK so I would have to pick MAC. I’ve heard Sephora is a beauty treasure trove though so I’m desperate to visit.
Q: Would you rather only use one eyeshadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?
A: Oh this is easy! I’d pick one eyeshadow colour. I don’t wear eyeshadow on a daily basis but I can’t live without my lipstick. I love buying and trying new colours but if I did have to stick to one shade of lippy it would be a classic red.
Q: Would you rather wear Winter clothes in the Summer or Summer clothes in the Winter?
A: I don’t really know?! I love Winter clothes but can’t stand being too hot so would hate to wear them in Summer. Similarly I wouldn’t want to freeze by wearing skimpy clothes in Winter. That’s too hard! Next question please?
Q: Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
A: I’d pick dark nails all year round. Don’t get me wrong, I do love bright, bold colours but I think dark nails always look a little bit chicer and fit in whatever the weather.
Q: Would you rather give up your favourite lip product or favourite eye product?
A: I think you know the answer to this one! I love my lip products. They always have my back and I always have theirs ;)
Q: Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
A: Definitely a messy bun! I love a good old messy bun. There’s something about them which look sophisticated and dressed but stylish and relaxed at the same time. I look like a plain Jane with a ponytail.
Q: Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
A: I can’t bear the thought of long unpainted nails. They make me cringe! Therefore I would have to pick nail polish. I can live without lipgloss if it means I get a manicure.
Q: Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or Sharpie them in everyday?
A: I’m actually giggling at the thought of me with a pair of heavy black Scouse-brows! However, I would have to pick that option instead of shaved eyebrows. My brows are quite thick and I hate it if I accidentally wax them too thin so the thought of me with none at all is terrifying!
Q: Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
A: Okay so I know I said earlier that I would pick polish over lipgloss but if I had to sacrifice my whole makeup bag I would be saying bye bye to painted nails. I just can’t imagine a life without makeup. I know that sounds really sad but I get so much joy from putting on a full face and making myself look different. I feel so much more confident with a slick of lipstick or a smoky eye. I would just have to keep my nails very short and neat.
