Would You Rather | Beauty Edition

Hello Lovelies!

Today I wanted to do a bit of a fun post, and I actually haven't done a tag in quite a while. So when I seen this on the lovely Kayleigh's blog I decided this would be the one for me! I love reading tags like this so if you do it please let me know so I can read yours! Now on with the tag! Wish me luck because I am one of the most indecisive people in the world! 

Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
As much as I love my palettes and eyeshadows, I look so weird without my mascara and eyeliners on so I'd have to say I'll give up my palettes as much as it pains me! My eyelashes are invisible so I really need my mascara to define them to stop me looking so googly eyed! I would also find it pretty hard to give up my lipstick collection! You all know how much I love my nude lip!
Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Since my hair literally does.not.grow I could probably get away with not being able to cut it again! My hair has been the same length since I left school which is nearly 5 years ago now! I was platinum blonde and did that did a lot of damage to my poor hair! Since then it has gotten much thicker but it hasn't quite grasped growing yet. 

Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
As much as I adore a good pink blush and even though the majority of blushes I own are actually pink, I think I would have to go with a coral cheek! I think it looks gorgeous with a tan, it makes you look really healthy and glowy and it is perfect for the Spring/Summer time! I am so excited to get my hands on the new Bourjois Creme Blushes because I've seen that they have a gorgeous coral shade in the range! 

If you had €1000 to spend, Would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Can I go half and half? I suppose it would actually be clothes. I hate going clothes shopping though! I just don't enjoy it at all, I hate having to go and try on lots of different sizes to see what will fit you, I hate when the shops are uncomfortably busy and I can just never seem to pick out anything nice. It's always been a problem for me. So if I could I would spend the €1000 on clothes and just hope that a personal shopper would come with the deal! 

Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?

I don't think there is a way that that could work...unless you had a red/pink eyeliner that you could put on your lips? I don't like this makes me sad! Next!

Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
We don't actually have Sephora in Ireland and where I live the nearest MAC store is 2hrs away..and they don't deliver to Ireland off their website. I know it's a travesty. Do Sephora sell MAC? If they do then they can feel free to build a store in my local town please! 

Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?

I think I would be quite happy to stick with the same eyeshadow colour. I am fairly boring when it comes to my eye make up so I could wear a neutral eye and be happy with the fact that I can change up my lip colour! I don't tend to wear brighter colours on my eyes anyway so I don't think I'd be missing out! 

Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Easy. Winter clothes in Summer. Purely because it's what we have to do in Ireland anyway. We might get one decent week out of the whole year where we can break out the shorts and flip flops but apart from that you could get rain, hail or snow. 

Would you rather dark nails or bright nails all year round?

I actually haven't worn a darker nail in what seems like forever! I do love a good vampy red nail but I would have to say bright nails for this. They just look good with any outfit and as sad as it sounds I really like catching a glimpse of my bright nails during a gloomy day. It really is the little things eh?
Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
Probably my favourite eye product. Because I usually go for a neutral eye everyday I could probably find a replacement fairly easily where lip products I find are harder to find dupes for!

Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a pony tail or a messy bun?
I do love a good messy bun! Since my hair is relatively fine, pony tails tend to look a bit limp on me. But I can really add the volume with a good old messy bun and a back combing brush! I'd be lost without my little bun donut thing too! I love throwing my hair up in a bun for work or dressing it up a little, maybe putting it to the side for a night out! 

Would your rather never being able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
Never use lipgloss. I tend to forget about lipgloss most of the time so it wouldn't be that big of a change for me. But I am literally addicted to painting my nails! I love trying different colours and designs (Even though recently I've been sticking to my beloved Midnight Bronze) and I really would be lost without my nail polishes! 

Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? or sharpie them in everyday?
I think I would have to attempt a light hand with a Sharpie. How depressing would that be? I suppose it would be accepted easier than having no eyebrows at all though! I think they are one of the most important parts of your face - even though you may not think it! I love my eyebrow routine so I think I would just have to attempt to sharpie them in and make it look acceptable!

Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
I think I would have to choose make up for this one. Even though I said before I would be lost without my nail polishes, I wouldn't last very long without make up! 

So there you have it! My Would You Rather Beauty Edition and that was a lot harder than I expected. All I can say is that I hope to never have to make those decisions in real life! I hope you enjoyed reading my answers and if you've done this tag please let me know as I'd love to read it!

  9. Some of your answers are so funny! Unfortunately Sephora doesn't carry Mac products but if I were to do this tag I would totally break the rules and say that since most Mac locations are in department stores that also carry many brands, I would go with the department store that houses Mac... I know I'm bad. Great post Danielle!
