Tag: Would you rather? - beauty edition

Hello beautiful readers! The wonderful Charlotte from Makeup by Candlelight tagged me in this rather humorous game of choices, and I just knew I had to take part! It's a bit cruel, a bit hard, and a bit silly all at the same time. So without further ado: the questions!

1) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I don't particularly like wearing eyeshadow and really only have one palette that I use, so I'd definitely rather lose the palettes and eyeshadows. Lipsticks are my life, as are mascaras. I just love a nude eye and bold lips, so losing eyeshadows won't bother me in the slightest. *brave face* (I'm just trying to be brave, please don't take my eyeshadows :'( )

2) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Never be able to cut it again. I went six years without even getting a trim once, so I suppose I could live with not cutting it again as long as I took good care of it :3 Plus short hair really doesn't suit me. I don't like either option though >.< 
3) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Pink, definitely. I think both are beautiful in different circumstances or situations, but I just love love love a pink cheek. There's something youthful and natural about a rosy glow :)

4) If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Do shoes count as clothes? I could easily spend £1000 on shoes. But I also could on make up. AHH this is a hard question. Um. Clothes/shoes. Yes. Clothes/shoes.
5) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
The thing about applying lipstick as eyeliner is that it'll smudge like mad and end up everywhere. So I'd much rather apply eyeliner as lipstick. I used to when I was in my teenage "goth" phase to get a truly matte black lip anyway haha.

6) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
I don't think we have Sephora in the UK... but if we did, I'd definitely say Sephora. You can get a multitude of brands at Sephora but MAC only sells MAC, and the only thing I really buy from MAC are the lipsticks and the paint pots. So definitely Sephora.

7) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
One eyshadow colour for sure, because then I get to wear as many lip colours as I want

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?
Dark nails. I just feel that dark nail colours suit my pasty white complexion more than pastels or bright colours do. Bright/pastels tend to wash them out a bit.

10) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
Hmm... The most difficult question (and funnily enough I saved this one 'til last). My favourite eye product would be my Max Factor Masterpiece Max mascara... My favourite lip product would be MAC Violetta lipstick. I think I'd rather give up my favourite eye product. I have dark eyelashes anyway and they're pretty long, so although mascara does make them look nicer, I guess I could live without it. BUT PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME CHOOOOOOOOSE!

11) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
A messy bun! I love the chic/slightly grunge look that a messy bun can give. You can dress is up or down and is much more versatile than a ponytail. I also think it's a little bit more grown up than a ponytail. I had a ponytail pretty much throughout my primary school days and now it just reminds me of that. So always a messy bun, please!

12) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
Never use lipgloss. I. Hate. Lipgloss. Even if they're not sticky, they're usually slimy, and I just don't think they look good on me. I don't mind a lipstick with a slightly glossy finish (like a cremesheen or a glaze from MAC) but a full on gloss is just not me at all. So I'd happily never use lipgloss, since I don't ever use it anyway haha.

13) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
My eyebrows are rather thin on the outer corners but thick in the middle corners, so I'd much rather sharpie them in every day to actually give myself eyebrows than shave them all off entirely. It really is surprising how much they frame your face, and I'd rather have pen eyebrows than no eyebrows. Whoopi Goldberg can pull it off, I can't.

14) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
I guess nail polish, because that's only one thing. If I were to give up make up I'd have to give up EVERYTHING, lipstick, mascara, blush. If I gave up nail polish I'd just have naked nails instead of naked everything else, so I think it's a fair trade :3
