I was tagged to do this post by one of my favourite beauty bloggers Louise! Check out her awesome blog Lou Lou’s Beauty & Fashion Fix. It’s called “Would You Rather, Beauty Edition” Tag, which simply involves answering 14 questions. Let’s play!
1) Would you rather lose all your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lip glosses, or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?
- I don’t even have to think about this one – I would rather lose my palettes and eye shadows because my eyes totally disappear without eyeliner and mascara! I think it’s a blonde thing.
2) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
- I would rather never be able to cut my hair again because I look like a boy with short hair!
3) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
- I would rather have a coral cheek because I look best in autumn colours. Pastels wash me out.
4) If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
- If I had £1000 to spend, I would be so happy because that would mean I was visiting the UK! If I had the equivalent amount of money in Canadian dollars to spend, I would rather spend it on clothes. I must confess that I am a clothes horse! I like to have lots of variety in my closet for different types of activities and occasions.
5) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?
- Weird question! I would rather apply lipstick as eyeliner because putting my dark eyeliner on my lips would make me look goth, and I am too old to do goth!
6) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
- I would rather shop at MAC because they’re close to my heart, being one of the first big Canadian cosmetics companies.
7) Would you rather only use one eye shadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
- I would rather use only one lip colour for the rest of my life because I like to blend different eye shadow colours to create more dramatic eyes. See question 1.
8) Would you rather wear winter clothes in the summer or summer clothes in winter?
- Even though I LOVE wearing sweaters, I’d definitely rather wear summer clothes in the winter than vice versa. I hate being too hot, so I would NOT want to wear winter clothes in the summer – that’s just a recipe for crabbiness waiting to happen!
9) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
- If I had been asked this question in the past, I probably would have said dark nails all year round (I love dark nails in the winter). But I have been embracing colour more in recent years, so now I would rather have bright nails all year round.
10) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
- No question – I’d rather give up my favourite lip product. I focus most on my eyes when doing my makeup. See question 1.
11) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
- I would rather only be able to wear my hair in a messy bun because I think they look more sophisticated than pony tails.
12) Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?
- Oh….. very hard question! After much agony, I would rather never use lip gloss again. I am totally into acrylic nails right now. I can’t imagine giving them up because they look so much more polished (no pun intended!) than plain nails. Don’t make me give up my nails and polish!!
13) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or Sharpie them in everyday?
- Who is thinking up these questions?! Despite the high maintenance, I would rather Sharpie my eyebrows in every day. See question 1.
14) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
- Cruel question! I would be devastated to give up my nails, but alas, I would rather live without nail polish because I am one of those people who look quite different with make up on. Au naturel is just plain scary. See question 1!!
