Today, I thought I’d do The Beauty Scenario tag that I’ve seen floating around YouTube and now, beauty blogs. I saw it on Auxiliary Beauty, which is what pushed me to answer, haha. Anyway, please enjoy! Maybe?
Link yours in the comments if you’ve done it; I’d love to read! Ahem:
1. You have to get rid of all of your foundations and only keep one high-end and one drugstore; which do you keep?
Ellis Faas Skin Veil*, hands down. That’s the only correct answer.
2. You go for an interview, and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth. Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely?
No way! I still feel iffy telling even my mother that, though of course I do. If it’s a friend or someone I’m comfortable with, I’d say it. Otherwise, I’d keep quiet.
Besides, I do not have nearly enough charm or warmth in me to pull off that kind of brazen comment.
3. You’re not feeling yourself and need a pick-me-up lipstick. Which do you go for?
Man, I don’t know. Probably something vampy and dark (e.g. MAKE Jakarta) or a matte/satin mauve-type shade (e.g. MAC Mehr, Kat Von D Lovecraft). Honestly, though, I’m more of an eye makeup girl, so I think a soft, blown-out warm smoky eye would be my pick-me-up! Or something like these:
My confidence-boosters, though, are deep reds like Guerlain Orgueil, LMdB Signature or NARS Mascate.
4. You go back in time for a day to your teenage years; how would you do your hair or makeup differently?
I wouldn’t have used kohl on my lower lash line (tragic), and probably experimented more with makeup because I just kind of pillaged my mom’s drawer. I didn’t wear a lot of makeup because I went to Catholic school and it wasn’t allowed. Also, I didn’t really care that much because this was the type of crap I was up to:
For hair… I probably would have at least brushed it, haha. I literally had NESTS OF HAIR on my nape because I couldn’t be bothered with a comb.
I’m so happy my hair is shorter now.
5. You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length Pixie Lott haircut but they hear wrong and give you a pixie cut – what would 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
LOL PIXIE LOTT IS SUCH AN OBSCURE THING. First of all, it wouldn’t have happened here because I would have had to bring in an actual photo of Pixie Lott, as no one would know who I was talking about. Also, isn’t that what you are supposed to do for something so specific? Bring in a photo?
Whatever the reason that has brought me to this predicament—did I fall asleep? Did I not hear the razor? Feel the cold steel of the shears on my nape?—I don’t think I can ask for a refund if I didn’t clarify my cut. I would assess the situation, first. If it looks good anyway, I’ll take it!
I don’t think I’ve cried about hair. It grows back, relax. (Of course, this is coming from someone who brushed her hair maybe 7 times in 4 years of high school.)
6. 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?
NARS And God Created the Woman or MAKE’s Celeste e Verde Palette* or Le Métier de Beauté After Dark Kaleidoscope! The first is basically all the eyeshadows you would need, the second is fun with cute lip colors that can also act as cream blushes, and the third is also surprisingly versatile for both your eye and cheek needs.
7. 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?
This question cracks me up so frakking much, for reasons I’m sure I don’t have to spell out. But to humor the meme, I hope my eyeshadow palettes are safe, particularly the Addiction x Jean-Michel Basquiat ones, SUQQU Sumiredama, my Le Métier de Beauté Kaleidoscopes, and my homeless Cle de Peau quad, because that fucker was so expensive. IT DIDN’T EVEN COME WITH A CASE!
Oh, and probably my Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Abundance! I can live like a blush minimalist, if that was somehow ignored by this fictional makeup bandit with poor-ass priorities.
8. Your friend borrows makeup and returns it in 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
I don’t have friends, so it’s not like I can lend them to anyone. In the event that I do end up lending my makeup to a friend, I would expect them to take care of it but also be prepared if something happens to it. I’m personally pretty careful with things I borrow, so I expect the same from others.
I lend my makeup to my sister pretty frequently, and there hasn’t been any major mishaps, yet. I don’t think I’ll be too fussed about it, though. It’s just makeup!
The end. Remember, if you’ve done this before, please let me know so I can check it out. 😀
