The Beauty Scenario

Lily Pebbles started this tag at the beginning of the year. I've read and watched (on youtube) this tag so many times on different platforms and thought why not do one too. Tags are a great way of meeting other beauty bloggers and discovering staple products in their stash.


1. You have to get rid of all your foundations, and only keep one high-end and one drugstore, which do you keep?

I used to use L'oreal Paris True Match- which had really good coverage for a drugstore foundation but that was a while back. Since then, I haven't really got on well with any drugstore foundations. They are either way too orange/dark or too light. For high end, my favourites are Make up Forever HD Foundation and Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation- both have amazing coverage!

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?

This is a bit of a tricky one. Interviews tend to make me super nervous so I would try to avoid it as much as I can. Depending on how the conversation is flowing, I could maybe slip it in- that way she'd remember me later on and maybe even get the job.

3. Your not feeling yourself and you need a pick me up lipstick, which do you go for?

I think the perfect 'pick me up' lipstick would have to be bold and really out there. The one I'm currently obsessing over is Topshop Lipstick in Wicked.

4. You go back in time for a day to your teenage years, how would you do your hair and makeup differently?

My hair is super thin right now and I'm guessing it's all down to the crazy backcombing I did during school days. I backcombed everywhere I went- during lessons, in the playground, at the school salon and even in the corridors (beehive heaven). I wish I didn't do it!

Makeup-wise, I'm not that crazy over liquid liners now, however, back then my liner would end all the way near my hair line no joke. I would also do the full on cat liner going all the way around my eyes- which never did suit me- oh gawd!

5. You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length Pixie Lott hair cut but they hear wrong and give you a pixie hair cut. Do you a) smile, say thank you, leave and call your mum and cry hysterically b) cry in the chair and things get awkward or c) complain to the manager and demand a refund.

I am definitely the one with the foul mouth in my family- I get it from my mama. I would be complaining and shouting my mouth off to the manager for sure, and then tweet it, instagram it.. lol just kidding!

6. Your friend surprises you with a 4 day city break and you have 1 hour to pack. Which 'do it all' palette do you pack in your makeup bag?

It has to be Make up Revolution Flawless Palette! It has a mix of some gorgeous shimmer, matte and highlight shades. It's also a complete bargain so if it broke or got lost during my break, it wouldn't bother me.

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?

Firstly, why a burglar would want to burgle my house for my makeup I don't know (damn hater). But I would hate for my lipstick collection to be stolen! I've been collecting them for years now and there some lippys that aren't sold anymore such as Revlon Mauve It Over and Sleek Lipstick in Succumb- both different shades of nude!

8. Your friend borrows your makeup and returns it in an awful condition. Do you a) just pretend you haven't noticed b) ask them to repurchase it or c) secretly do the same to something of theirs.

It's just makeup, nothing to hold a grudge over so I would talk about it and let them know and use it as an excuse to go makeup shopping...yayyyyyyy!
