"Would you rather..." Beauty Edition Tag

I was recently tagged by Becky over at Coffee, Beauty and Life to do the “Would you rather…” Beauty Edition Tag. I always think tags are quite fun, as you get to know more about the person behind the blog and I’m one of those people who loves to fill things in and answer questions! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip-glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye shadows?

I think I would cope OK if I lost my palettes and eye shadows, as I’m pretty terrible at applying eye shadow without looking like a clown. However, if I were to lose my mascara, eyeliner, lipsticks and lip-glosses I would struggle on the days I wear make-up, as these products make up a pretty big section of my beauty routine!

Would you rather chop all your hair off or never be able to cut it again?

This is a bit of a difficult one, because as mortifying as I would find it to lose all my hair, the thought of never being able to cut it would also fill me with dread. Don’t you hate it when you’re due a cut and blow dry and you’ve got split ends and your hair just feels like it’s hanging round your face with no shape or volume. Still, I think I’d rather have hair to play around with than having no hair at all. My hair already falls out quite a bit and I do get scared that one day it will become a bigger problem, so I think I’d chose to never cut it again.

Would you rather have coral cheek or pink cheek?

This is pretty easy for me as my favourite colour is pink and it definitely suits me more than coral shades!

If you had £1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or make up?

Can I not choose to buy both?! I think I would probably go for clothes because that encapsulates so much – shoes, dresses, trousers, tops, hats, accessories…you’d get more choice for your money than if you had to just buy beauty products I think. Plus I don’t tend to buy masses of make-up because I’m rubbish at applying it!

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

Well to be honest I’d rather not do either, but if I had to I’d apply eyeliner as lipstick and choose a pink toned one (is that cheating?!)

Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

I’ve never shopped in Sephora before (I know, bad blogger!) and I am a big fan of Mac; however I think I’d probably choose Sephora because I’d have more choice and could find more products that suited my budget.

Would you rather only use one eye shadow colour or one lip colour for the rest of your life?

I’d definitely stick to one lip colour. I’ve found that I tend to buy similar lip colours anyway; whereas with eye shadows there are so many colours to choose from I’d hate to be limited to one colour forever!

Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

I hate being too hot but I also hate being too cold, so this question is really difficult. I’d probably go for wearing summer clothes in winter and then permanently attach myself to a radio or cover myself in a blanket, as the thought of melting in winter clothes in the middle of summer just sounds like torture.

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

Definitely bright nails as I love to cheer myself up with brightly coloured nail varnishes, and you can find a colour suitable for any time of year.

Would you rather give up your favourite lip colour or favourite eye product?

It would have to be the lip colour as I use a lot more products on my eye area and I don’t think I could give those up easily.

Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

I’m definitely a ponytail girl so this question is pretty simple to answer. If I had to wear a ponytail for the rest of my life I wouldn’t be too worried!

Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip-gloss?

I’d never use lip-gloss, as I love painting my nails way too much!

Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in every day?

I think doing either would be pretty awful, but if I had to choose I would shave them, as I’d hate to get it wrong with a sharpie and look constantly surprised or angry!

Would you rather live without make up or nail polish?

This is really difficult! I love to paint my nails and I think it’s a great way to cheer yourself up if you’re feeling a bit down, but then I look like a ghost without make up so I can’t imagine feeling confident enough to go places without it. Plus it’s a Godsend when you need to cover up blemishes or dark circles, so I guess I’d live without nail varnish.

I’d like to tag the following ladies from some of my favourite blogs:

Victoria at Victoria's Vintage
Becky at Milk Bubble Tea
Emma at Milkteef
Charlotte at Lipglossiping
Jennie at Sailboat
Victoria at Inthefrow

And anyone else that fancies giving it a go!

Let me know if you do your own post as I’d love to read it


  1. I totally agree about the eye shadow. I have not yet masted the art of applying it. Talk about a bad blogger!! :] // ☼

  2. Loved this tag! They're such good fun.

  3. Ugh, the thought of either shaving or drawing in my eyebrows with a sharpie made me wince. Two terrible choices! Either way, I would be forced to wear a bag over my head for the rest of my existence! On the other hand, I love Sephora, so that one would be easy, and I don't tend to wear nail polish (I know, shocking), so that made several more very easy to answer. Fun read! Marjie

    1. Hehe Marjie tell me about it - I'd be mortified if I had to do that! I really must try out Sephora now that it's in the UK :) Glad you enjoyed reading it xx

  4. Funny post! Hahah I hate drawn on eyebrows! And with the lipliner/eyeliner one I would just go with a dark purple eyeliner!

    1. Hehe Rachel can you imagine having to draw on eyebrows with a sharpie! That's a good idea about the eyeliner! xx
