Hi lovelies! I recently read this Beauty 'Would You Rather' on the gorgeous Kayleigh's blog and thought it looked like so much fun! I love reading posts like this and adore writing them too so as soon as I saw Kayleigh's post I knew I wanted to do it right away! If you haven't seen Kayleigh's post or visited her blog (which I'm sure most of you will have!) you can read it here. Her blog is one of my 'must read' blogs, love it! Anyway, onto the questions!

Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
As Kayleigh said in her post, this is a super easy one for me. I'd rather lose my palettes and eyeshadows for a few reasons. As much as I love my (eye wateringly expensive) palettes, it'd take a lot more to replace all my mascaras, eyeliner, lipstick etc. And if I wasn't allowed to replace them, there's no way I could live without lipstick, mascara and eyeliner. Eyeshadows, though I love them, I could live without. Re-buying all my MAC ones would just be traumatizing though!!

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

This is a horrible horrible question. I want to say never cut it as I hate cutting my hair. However, it'd get sooo ratty and awful ahh I don't know! I suppose cut it as I could always wear extensions or a wig or something until it grew back. If Jessie J could do it...

Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

Coral for sure. It suits my skin tone much much better, I love pinks, but they're always pinky coral or peachy rather than pink pink. I think with my skin, which is more warm than cool toned, and my blonde hair, pinks make me look a bit barbie, which is exactly what Kayleigh said! I think some blondes can get away with the barbie look, but it's just not for me.

If you had £1000 to spend, Would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

Definitely clothes. I adore buying makeup but I really don't need £1000 worth of it at all. I'm not sure I even need what I have now so £1000 worth would be beyond excessive. So yes, it'd be go wild in Topshop time for me!

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

These are so yucky, but you can get nude eyeliners so I think I'd go for eyeliner as lipstick. You can also get hot pink or orange eyeliners if you do a Barry M jobby so I think I'll cheat and say that. Lipstick on the eyes is just gross!

Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

We don't really have Sephora in the UK but if we did I'd definitely say that as there's so much more variety. However, I'd really miss MAC. If it had to be one or the other though, it'd be Sephora, purely because of the variety of brands you can get.

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

As odd as this may be for some, probably one lip colour. I use nudey pinks or peachy tones every single day so I'd go for MAC Pure Zen or something like that as it can be dressed up with a smokey eye or down with more neutral shadows. As much as I love other lip colours, I'm not too adventurous with my lipsticks so I don't think it would phase me too much. As long as I'm allowed lipgloss too!

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

This is another horrible question as it'd be unbearable either way. I'd hate summer clothes in winter 1. because I'd look stupid and 2. because I'd freeze my butt off. But then, I'd hate winter clothes in summer because I adore summer clothes. If I had to go for one though, it'd be winter clothes in summer as I couldn't stand the cold wearing my dresses in winter time!

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

Definitely bright for me. I hope this includes pastels too! I just don't really do dark nails, even in the winter so this is pretty easy. And as a beauty therapist I think dark nails can look a bit odd when you're doing other peoples nails or facials and things like that.

Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

Definitely my favourite eye product. As much as I love it (it's my Benefit they're real mascara), I could find an alternative without too much trauma, but my favourite lip product (MAC lippies!) is something I couldn't live without!

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

Definitely ponytail, I literally never, ever wear my hair in a bun as I don't think it suits me so this is a no brainer for me.

Would your rather never being able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?

Never wear lipgloss, lipsticks can be glossy and even if not it's not the end of the world for me. But never being able to have lovely colourful nails again is just a horrible thought! Plus, my nails break when they've not got paint or gel on them so it would just be bad for my health to give it up, right?

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

It'd have to be the sharpie, god how awful. But I just couldn't rock the alien look with no eyebrows. I'm sure sharpies come in all sorts of colours now though so I'd find one to make it work I guess. 

Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

Eeek, it's got to be nail polish but that would be super sad. As I said, my nails are much stronger with polish or gel on.Maybe I can cheat and say I'll use gels as it's not really nail polish! CAN'T TAKE IT BACK NOW!!

So, I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it! Even if I did massively cheat on most of the questions!

Let me know if you've done this/ are going to do it as I'd love to read it!
