Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all had a good weekend and are enjoying the transition into fall weather. The lovely Jannatul tagged me for a “this or that” beauty tag and since I’ve (somehow) never done one before, I thought I’d post it up for some Monday reading. :) I tag any of you who want to do this! Let me know if you do it so I can read your answers.
Blush or bronzer? Blush. I’m pale and proud!
Lip gloss or lip stick? Typically lip stick, which is funny considering I used to hate it.
Eyeliner or mascara? I love both, but if I’m in a hurry and only have time for one makeup item, I choose mascara. It opens up my eyes and makes me look so much more awake.
Foundation or concealer? Concealer. I’m taking better care of my skin now, so I don’t need as much product to make it look okay.
Neutral or colored eye shadow? Neutral.
Pressed or loose eye shadow? Pressed–I make a mess with the loose sifters!
Brushes or sponges? Brushes.
OPI or China Glaze? China Glaze, since I believe OPI is not cruelty-free.
Long or short? The shorter, the better! I hate long nails on myself!
Acrylic or natural? Natural.
Bright or dark? Dark.
Flowers (or other designs) or no? No. I’m not big on nail art, sadly.
Perfume or body splash? Perfume.
Lotion or body butter? Lotion.
Body wash or soap? Body wash. Soap melts :(
Lush or another brand? Bath and Body Works all the way!!
Jeans or sweat pants? Jeans.
Long or short sleeves? Long–you can always roll them up if you get too warm, but I’m usually chilly!
Dress or skirt? Dress.
Stripes or plaids? Plaid. It’s very Scottish/Irish.
Scarves or hats? Scarves! I have a bit of an addiction.
Studs or dangling earrings? Dangling. I also have an earring addiction.
Necklace or bracelet? Bracelet. I honestly am not that keen on necklaces and I have no idea why.
Heels or flats? I love heels, but I also love being able to walk in comfort.
Cowboy boots or riding boots? Riding boots. I’m not a fan of pointy toes.
Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, or Marshalls? I love F21 but I have better luck size-wise at stores like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx.
Curly or straight? Straight, since it’s the least amount of work (my hair is naturally stick straight!). I do like waves, but they’re just a lot of work to achieve for my hair type.
Bun or ponytail? Bun. Quickest and easiest style for me.
Bobby pins or butterfly clips? I know those little plastic claw clips are supposed to be horrible and atrocious, but I hate trying to work with bobby pins! Luckily those little clips now come in colors to match your hair and they’re much easier to work into a bun and hide!
Hairspray or gel? Hairspray. Gel does nothing for me.
Long or short? Long!
Dark or light? Dark.
Side swept or full bangs? Side swept. My hair isn’t thick enough to support full bangs, sadly.
Up or down? Up. I like my hair loose but it gets in my way.
Rain or shine? Rain! I love grey rainy weather. I love the sunshine too, but I really love the rain.
Summer or winter? Winter…even though I’m always cold. But in the winter you can curl up with tea, cats, and a good book!
Fall or spring? Fall. My favorite season :)
Chocolate or vanilla? Dark chocolate!!
