Jenn at Going the Distance recently did a Beauty Would You Rather... and I loved reading her answers, so I thought I would participate too. Thanks for the inspiration!
1. Wear only one eye shadow color OR only one lip color for the rest of your life?
I would go with only one lip color for the rest of my life since I don't wear lipstick that often and when I do, I go for neutral tones so it would go with everything. I need multiple eye shadow colors daily.
2. Live without makeup OR without nail polish?
This is so easy...without nail polish. I need makeup on the daily just to look presentable (in my opinion). I have worn it since I was a teen and I feel naked without it. I didn't wear it during my maternity leave and that was ok, but being out in public and at work, I need my mask.
My go-to bright pink nail polish (Hotter Than Pink)
3. Have dark nails OR bright nails year round?
Bright nails. I love fun, bright colors and I am constantly changing my nail color (basically every Thursday night while the girls sleep and Rory is at his softball game).
4. Give up makeup brushes OR mascara?
Makeup brushes because as Jenn pointed out (and others before her), you can use sponges or that pink blender (that Sephora sales and I have been wanting).
5. Leave the house with an obvious foundation line OR overdone blush?
Overdone blush. Yes you may look like a clown with all that color, but there is nothing worse than seeing the foundation line and thinking that the person does not know how to wear makeup. They are a rookie and you need to blend it down through your neck. See the pink blender above.
6. Have no eyebrows OR sharpie drawn ones?
Both are awful. I guess I would go with no eyebrows so I can use a pencil (not a sharpie) to draw them on and at least look half way decent. Sharpie, just no.
7. Go out with messy hair/nice makeup OR nice hair/no makeup?
Messy hair and nice makeup. Isn't that what my mom life looks like? Half the time when my hair looks good in the morning, it is destroyed through the day by my girls pulling my hair, crawling through the baby tunnels, rolling on the ground, etc.
8. Have a bad haircut OR bad hair color?
Bad hair color any day. That will grow out and look just fine. Or you can do other styles to cover up the mess, but having a bad haircut is the worst. I had one before and when you can't even put it in a pony tail to hide the mess, it is awful and you hate the way you look for months. At least with hair color you can hide it better.
9. Be able to buy only drugstore makeup OR only high end makeup?
If money doesn't come into play then only high end makeup because why not?! But if money is needed, then drugstore makeup. I wear some drugstore makeup and it is just as good, if not better than the high end makeup. I love Maybelline's Dark Circle Eraser and it works way better than my more expensive concealers.
10. Spend $1,000 on clothes OR makeup?
Clothes all the way. I love clothes and I swoon over clothes way more than makeup. I could do some real damage with $1,000. Anyone want to sponsor me for that? Ha.
