I was tagged by Rae, prompting me to finally do a beauty post after a long series of paper-related posts. Thanks Rae! The Beauty Scenario Tag is basically just a bunch of scenarios/questions that I have to answer.
You have to get rid of all of your foundations and keep only one high-end and one drugstore, which would you keep?
I don’t really have any high-end foundations, so I’m not considering that. For midrange I’ll go with Ellana Minerals Loose Mineral Powder Foundation in Caramel Latte (I need a pressed version of this!) and for drugstore it will be Pixy UV Whitening Two Way Cake.
You go for an interview and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth. Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely?
As an interviewer (part of my job), I wouldn’t really mind if the interviewee mentions it or not. I would, however, mind if he/she keeps looking at it and being distracted from the actual interview and not telling me about it. If I were the one being interviewed, I’ll definitely just ignore it completely.
You’re not feeling yourself and you need a pick-me-up lipstick, which do you go for?
A pink would always feel like a great pick-me-up because it’s fun and bright. In my stash, one of my favorite pinks is Ofra #205.
You go back in time for a day to your teenage years, how would you do your hair or makeup differently?
The only thing I would change is to use sunscreen more often. I didn’t wear makeup back then, and I have always gone with a wash-and-wear (or wash-and-tie) hairstyle until today, and I wouldn’t change that at all.
You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length Pixie Lott hair cut but they hear wrong and give you a pixie cut, what do 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
Like Rae, I had to google who Pixie Lott is. I couldn’t really relate to this question though, as I never had hair longer than shoulder length. I wouldn’t at all mind if they gave me a shorter hair than I asked for, most especially since my husband is a huge fan of short hair. I would call my mum though, just so she can have a laugh with me about it!
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?
I will take my Clinique All-in-One Colour Palette with me, as not only does it have all the makeup I need but it also has usable brushes. Perhaps the only thing it doesn’t have is eyebrow makeup, but I can always diy the eyeshadows for it. This palette is in fact living in my glove compartment at the moment.
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?
As again, I do not really have a lot of high-end makeup. Perhaps the one I would hope is safe would be my Colourpop items, as these aren’t really available locally yet and are pretty hard to rebuy.
Your friend borrows makeup and returns it in an 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’ll mention it to her/him just so they are aware of the state of the makeup, but beyond that I wouldn’t do anything. It was probably an accident of some sort.
So! I choose you, Pikachu!
