Being a true-to-the-core Gemini, ‘This or That’ is an epithet often awarded to me. Eternally confused and loving every minute of it; this Beauty Edition tag has been exceptionally fun to write (especially since answering every question was like choosing between my arm and leg) and I have the very beautiful Nadine to thank for it. If you haven’t been to her blog – ‘Ladies and Lace‘ (now isn’t THAT a fashionable name 😉 ), then you have no idea what you are missing. Pop over to say hello and enjoy her wonderful musings!
When I saw this tag on Karen’s blog (another lovely blogger who’s posts just fill your heart with joy!), I really wanted to be a part of it. Fashion and beauty are the propellers to my existence, so you can imagine how chuffed I was to find that I had been tagged by Nadine to feature in it 🙂
Let’s get the ball rolling!
❤ Bronzer. I have naturally rosy cheeks and use foundation to tone it down, but I don’t think I can do without my bronzer (contouring, you see!)
❤ Lipstick especially the 9-5 kinds as I do tend to eat them minutes after applying *facepalm*
❤ I feel naked without my Mascara – eyeliner I can do without. Mascara tends to open up my peeps.
❤ Ooh! That’s a toughie! I think I’d have to say foundation. Full coverage I guess.
- Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow?
❤ Is gold neutral? I don’t think I’ve ever experimented with colour *hmm, Interesting!*
❤ Brushes, any day. So much easier to handle.
❤ I haven’t heard of China Glaze (sounds Interesting), so OPI
❤ Longish… I wish I were comfortable with long nails but they make typing very difficult, so I settle for ‘between long and short’.
❤ Natural… I’ve tried permanent acrylics and they lasted less than a day and cost me a bomb. I couldn’t stand the feel of them 😐
❤ Neutrals. I usually flaunt a French Manicure and can stand vibrant hues on my nails for a few hours only, but give me a neutral shade any day. *Am I weird?*
❤ Duh! Perfume. Here’s a tip – Spritz a little perfume in your closet and your clothes will always smell nice, even on days when you forget to wear perfume in a hurry 🙂
❤ I have combination skin, so body butter in winters and lotions in summers. I especially love the olive body butter by The Body Shop.
❤ The awesome range of fruity body washes! They smell good enough to eat 🙂
- Lush or other Bath Stores?
❤ We don’t have Lush here so I pick The Body Shop. I think I own almost every single product of their’s. I’m quite a hoarder that way – too bad, they last an eternity.
❤ ‘I am a sweatpants and messy hair kind of girl’ *stealing the quote I found on Pinterest*
❤ Short. Long Sleeves make me look frumpy 😦
❤ Ummm… Both! Yep, definitely both. Flirty dresses and cute skirts 😉
❤ Stripes, but only vertical. Horizontal stripes tend to add about ten pound to my figure *facepalm*
❤ Flip flops or ballet flats, but when I’m partying out it definitely sky-high heels – much to the discomfiture of my short height-ed bestie :p
❤ Scarves. They are so Parisian-chic! *dreamy-eyed*
- Studs or Dangling Earrings?
❤ Studs – diamonds to be precise. Could there be anything better?
❤ Chunky bracelets any day
❤ The best of both worlds – Wavy! (my natural hair texture)
❤ A messy bun. I don’t remember when I wore my hair in a ponytail last.
❤ Loooooooooong! Like really long. *sob sob* cursing the slow growth of my medium-length tresses.
❤ Or red or green or purple 😉 Name the shade and I’ve got it done at some point in my life, much to my mom’s horror! Right now it’s light-ish! 🙂
❤ Down, most of the time.
My Nominees –
Awww… it’s over! I had fun doing this! It’s so enlightening when you are pinned down to choose either ‘This or That’. Thanks again Nadine, for tagging me!
Hope you guys had as much fun reading it as I had answering it! Have a Happy Weekend!
