This or That? Beauty Edition

I saw this post by Karen over on confetti and curves and whilst I wasn’t tagged to do it, I fancied doing some easy questions that I didn’t have to think properly about yesterday evening!

2 choices between 2 beauty products, no copping out and picking both.


Blush or Bronzer?
Blush, especially as you can get some browny colour blushes that could technically be used as a subtle matte bronzer.

Lipgloss or Lipstick?
Easily lipstick

Eyeliner or Mascara?
Mascara, even if I don’t put any other makeup on as I’m running late, I have to put on some mascara to make myself look awake.

Foundation or Concealer?

Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow?
A year ago I would have said colour, but recently I’ve been reaching a lot more for neutrals – with a few gold shades thrown in.

Brushes or Sponges?


OPI or China Glaze?
I’m an OPI girl

Long or Short?
Not long, but not short either, somewhere in between suits me best.

Acrylic or Natural?
Natural, whenever I’ve worn falsies or on the one occasion I’ve had acrylic – I can’t do anything properly!

Brights or Darks?
I love brights, even in winter. There’s about a month between mid-December and January that I gravitate towards darks, but apart from that I’m a bright, pastel, glitter and neon lover!


Perfume or Body Spray?

Recently I’ve been reaching for my Victoria’s Secret body sprays over my perfume. But if I was choosing one over forever I’d pick perfume.

Lotion or Body Butter?
Neither really – In Shower Body Lotion from Nivea wins my lazy ass heart!

Body Wash or Soap?
Body Wash

Lush or Other Bath Store?

If I had to pick Lush, but I’m not really a great lover of any of these types of shops.


Jeans or Sweatpants?
Specifically – Dorothy Perkins Eden Jeggings – They’re long enough for my legs and are super soft that make them comfy to wear all the time.

Long Sleeved or Short?
Depends on the time of year, I can’t stand being hot or cold. If I wore long sleeves in summer I’d be very narky with everyone.

Dresses or Skirts?
This is the only question I’ve found hard! I love a good skater style dress or skirt – but if I could only pick one, it would probably be skirts – as you can find skirt/top combos that look like a dress!

Stripes or Plaid?
Stripes for me, but I do enjoy a good plaid on people

Flip Flops or Sandals?

Scarves or Hats?

Studs or Dangly Earrings?

Necklaces or Bracelets?
Necklaces, I have way too many!.


Curly or Straight?
Curly through choice, straight through time restraints in life.

Bun or Ponytail?
Ponytail – when done right they look so chic.

Long or Short?
On me Long

Light or Dark?
On me dark, my dark eyebrows restrict my ability to go light all over – although I would love to!

Side Swept or Full Bangs?
Both – I tend to mix it up through the year, again in summer I get really hot, and don’t enjoy the look of a sweaty fringe, so usually during summer I’m sideswept.

Up or Down?

That’s it, I’m nominating Rachwat (as she always beats me to it for nominating her!) and Annika and Chloe at Two Little Owls.

Let me know if you do this post, I’d love to see what your picks are!
