Shari from The Misty Mom tagged me to complete this Beauty Scenario Tag and I like the questions so much that I decided to take up the challenge!
You have to get rid of all of your foundations and only keep one high-end and one drugstore, which do you keep?
First of all, this would be cruel since I own quite a few bottles of foundations but from high end I’d keep my Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet foundation. I love it because it’s lightweight, yet evens out my skintone and covers imperfections, shade #20 is a perfect match for my skin. It looks very natural once applied and it has the most amazing scent. And it’s Chanel!
From drugstore, I’d keep my L’Oreal Pro-Matte foundation. It’s one of the latest additions to my foundation repertoire but it was love at first use. It’s a full coverage product, that blends seamlessly into the skin, covers redness and blemishes, mattifies your skin and lasts all day.
You go for an interview and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth. Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely?
I’d definitely ignore it. I am sure it would be distracting but I wouldn’t want to risk an opportunity of getting the job by pointing the lipstick to her if she took it the wrong way and thought I was rude.
You’re not feeling yourself and you need a pick-me-up lipstick, which do you go for?
Mac’s Kelly Yum Yum. It’s the brightest lipstick I own but I love it and it does have the ability to brighten up my day and make me feel better. Even the packaging itself is beautiful to look at! Plus, there is something comforting about the sweet vanilla scent of Mac’s lipsticks.
You go back in time for a day to your teenage years, how would you do your hair or makeup differently?
Surprisingly, I have no regrets here. I didn’t start wearing makeup till I was in high school and I started only by wearing mascara and some light brown eyeshadow. And I was fine with it, I don’t think teenagers need as much makeup as they wear nowadays. No reason or need to cover young and beautiful skin! I was pretty happy with my hair too- I usually had a trendy haircut with layers that were so popular back then, I styled it with a round hair brush, I didn’t even own a hair straightener back then. So yeah, I wouldn’t do anything differently to be honest.
You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length Pixie Lott hair cut but they hear wrong and give you a pixie cut, what do you do?
A) Smile, say thank you, call your mum and cry hysterically
B) Cry in the chair and things get awkward
C) Complain to the manager and demand a refund
Ugh, that would be a bad scenario but I’d probably go with A. I would smile, leave the salon and call my mom. Then come home and my mom would cheer me up saying it doesn’t look that bad. I would try to sport it till my hair grew back out. Fortunately, my hair grows rather fast! But, I think it’s always a good idea to show your stylist a picture of a haircut you’re wishing for. This way mistakes can be easily avoided.
Your friend surprises you with a 4 day city break and you have one hour to pack, which ‘Do It All’ palette do you pack in your makeup bag?
I am not a big fan of “Do It All” palettes so I don’t have many of them. But I’d definitely take my Urban Decay Naked On The Run palette. It comes with 6 neutral eyeshadows, a bronzer and a blush, an eyeliner, mascara and a lipstick. I think that would do for a 4 day gateway. You can read more about this palette here.
Your house has been robbed, don’t worry everyone is safe, but your beauty stash has been raided. What’s the product you really hope is safe?
All of it? A thief would end up with a really nice makeup collection! Everyone’s safety would be my main priority and, in all honesty, as much as I love my makeup collection, it’s still just makeup. No reason to dread over it missing. However, if I had to choose, I’d hope my LE Mac blushes are still there since they are no longer available and I wouldn’t be able to repurchase them.
Your friend borrows makeup and returns it in an awful condition. Do you:
A) Pretend you haven’t noticed
B) Ask them to re-purchase it
C) Secretly do it back to their makeup
If I let a friend borrow my makeup, it would be someone I really trust and I don’t think she would ruin it on purpose. If it happened, I am sure it would have been an accident and I am sure my friend would apologize to me and probably suggest replacing it for me. Either way, it’s just makeup, it wouldn’t be the end of the world!
These are all the questions. Aren’t they fun?? I hope you enjoyed reading my answers and to continue the fun, I am challenging Anne from Linda, Libra, Loca, Jenny from Mish Mosh Makeup and Carla from Blush Parade to complete the tag. If you’re not tagged, feel free to answer the questions in the comments below anyways!
Have a lovely weekend and I will talk to you soon!
