The Beauty Scenario Tag

I was tagged by the amazingly awesome Sheri to do the Beauty Scenario tag! This tag was created by one of my favourite youtubers, Lily Pebbles, and basically asks you what you would do in a number of beauty related scenarios! Let's dive in!

1. You have to get rid of all your foundations and only keep one high end and one drugstore. Which do you keep?
I don't own too many foundations, and only one or two that actually suit my skintone at the moment, so both of these sort of 'won' by default - though I do love both of them! For drugstore, I would keep the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid makeup in the shade Natural Beige. Firstly, it's really hard to get here in Australia, so I would definitely want to keep it. I do really love its medium coverage, dewy/satin finish and the shade is spot on for me. I actually only own one high-end foundation being the Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation* in shade Honey Beige. I do really like this foundation, it has good medium if not slightly more coverage and a nice satin finish that lasts really well on the skin.
























2. You go to an interview and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth. Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely?
I would definitely ignore it completely for a number of reasons. Firstly, wouldn't it be awkward telling a complete stranger they have lipstick on their teeth in general, let alone an interview situation? Like "oh, I'm gonna have to interrupt you, you have lipstick on your teeth", I think it would be quite embarrassing for them and just plain awkies. I'd tell a friend any day but in this case, nup.

3. You're not feeling yourself and you need a pick me up lipstick. Which do you go for?
I would definitely go for a bold lipstick shade. I actually think that my lips are one of my best features, my eyes and eyelashes are not great, and I really don't have great bone structure, so I actually do feel pretty good when I put on a nice, bold lipstick to draw attention to my lips. I particularly love matte shades as I know they'll be longer lasting, and less likely to transfer onto my teeth/move around! I really like my corals/oranges and deep berry, plums. Just a couple of my faves are the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Audacious and the Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Colour in the shade Sugar Plum Fairy.

























4. You go back in time for a day to your teenage years; how would you do your hair and makeup differently? 
Weeeeell considering I'm still in my teenage years, I wasn't sure how to answer this. I think I was pretty lucky because I only started wearing makeup after I got into beauty Youtube channels and blogs, so I did have a basic knowledge of dos and don'ts, and I don't think I looked terrible? Hopefully? I will say that I was a stinge and didn't buy a whole lot of the essentials. I used to fill in my eyebrows with black eyeliner...Eek! But the eyeliner was pretty crappy - not very pigmented or creamy, and I brushed the heck out of them with a spoolie, so I didn't have crazy black eyebrows at least! I would go back and just be like, buy an eyebrow pencil or kit bro, just do it. Oh I used to also wear the original Garnier BB Cream which was quite orange, sheer and made me quite oily. I would stop that right in its tracks!

5. You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length Pixie Lott cut, but they hear you wrong and give you a pixie hair cut. Do you a) Smile, say thank you, leave and call your Mum crying hysterically, b) Cry in the chair and things get awkward or c) Complain to the Manager and demand a refund? 
Now, realistically, I would hopefully notice them getting too short and stop them, but I'll go with the hypothetical. I think I would be a combination of a few of the options. Considering my hair is pretty long, and they cut basically all of it off, I'd like to think that I'd be like, "What?! Umm, I asked for a shoulder length hair cut, not a Pixie cut!", and hopefully the hairdresser would react and give me a refund. I probably wouldn't get all up in their grill and demand a refund but bish cut off all my hair, I would be pissed! Knowing me though, I'd probably chicken out and go for option a, but I don't think I'd be crying hysterically. I am super shy and literally suck at asking for things. My mum would probably then come out and demand a refund lol, that's just who she is.

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?
I would definitely grab the theBalm Balm Jovi palette. It literally has every colour product in it - an amazing range of eye shadow shades and finishes, a highlighter, blush and two lip colours that you could also use on your cheeks. Also, it's super thin and travel friendly!












7. Your house has been robbed (don't worry, everyone is safe) and your beauty stash has been raided. What's the product your really hope is safe?
Basically anything that's remotely expensive or limited edition, because I probably couldn't afford to repurchase right away, or it's no longer available! I have a couple of products that I'd really, really hope were safe; the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed because these are still really hard to get here in Australia, and my friend got it for me all the way over in New York, and the Estee Lauder Signature Lipstick in Venetian Rose because I love the colour (it's the perfect nude-y peach) and it's a discontinued shade.





















8. Your friend borrows your makeup and returns it in 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?
Well certainly not c, because that's just plain rude. I would only really lend my makeup to close friends, and people I would trust with it. Also, I think that hopefully they would notice if they'd completely wrecked my product and offer to replace it anyways. Besides, they're my friend, and I think we would be on good enough terms that I could just ask them to repurchase it for me, if it was really ruined. 

That was a pretty fun and interesting tag to do, thanks Sheri for tagging me. I tag Vanessa, Jen, Nhi, Yige and Monica & Linny if you guys haven't already done it, and anyone else who would like to!

*Product was sent for consideration.

  1. What a awesome tag! I totally wish neutrogena brought in their make up here! And I would love to have the blush from tarte. I would totally freak out if anyone returned my make up in bad condition and would make them replace it! That palette from thebalm looks beautiful, I haven't got any palettes from them but would love to!

    1. I wish Neutrogena makeup came here too! I know right - also because, wondering where the product has been? Like it's so munted - is it contaminated? lol

  2. Yay thanks for doing this tag! Loved reading your answers. Love the look of that Balm Jovi Palette, reminds me of that other theBalm palette I have lying around but haven't touched... And I am totally with you on the foundations question, not many I own actually suit my skintone, and that Estee Lauder lipstick looks like a very pretty shade :)

  8. People need to stop tagging me in tags because I feel like a lil' sht when I don't get around to doing them L O L ;-;
    Irrelevant, but, I applaud anyone who finishes a foundation tbh. And anyone who has multiple foundations/bases to choose from to save because I basically have three bases.
    And regarding the lipstick sich, all I imagine is, "YO LADY, I'MA LET U FINISH, BUT FIRST U GOT LIPSTICK ON UR TEEFS" (say it Kanye style)
    I suck at asking for things too, lol. I had a really really short pixie-ish once because my hairdresser messed up. Got confused as a boy for months. It was both awesome and sad. Also, if you need any North American goodies shipped over to the land down under, I don't mind being your broker ;)

    1. BISH BETTER DO IT. Lol just kidding...or AM I????
      Mm agreed, I always end up getting bored of them, or they stop matching my skin/colour.
      Bahahaaa basically how it would go down.
      Eek, that would have been an adventure. Jeez hairdressers, is it really that hard to not stuff up?
      Aww yee girl, hook me up ;) Haha will keep that in mind. I ralls would love to do a swap or something similar but I'm so poor and I need to save up for my NZ trip!

      Delete
    2. I have to be realistic here and agree with you.(But I am open for a swap anytime, even if it's like, 5 years down the road from now!) HAVE FUN IN NZ WHEN YOU DO GO THO :D
      (jk, you don't need to be told to have fun in NZ; fun in NZ is obligatory)

    3. Yeyeyeyey shall write it in the books for when I'm not broke :D
      Yus, should be amaaazzeeeeee, there was a bit of stress in the planning so hopefully it will all be worth it (should be lol). I'll do like a post on my travels :)

  9. I just laughed at your "My mum would probably then come out and demand a refund". It's totally trueee. They just have this sort of power to do that stuff, but I just dont think I'd have the guts and heart for that XD. Thanks for the tag as well ^____^

  10. Omg when I started wearing makeup I filled my eyebrows in with black eyeliner as well! I think I was just like, "hmm I have black hair so obviously I just NEED to use black to fill them in". And my eyeliner was atrocious. I used this really cheap black eyeliner that was way too creamy and basically by the end of the day I looked like the fricking winter soldier... Anyway, thank you for tagging me! (and don't kill me if I don't get around to doing it soon!)

    1. Haha umm...TWINSIES? I was like why not...? I have black hair so, I will admit though, my brows didn't look terrible. Bahahaaa Winter Soldier - lol. I've been seeing a lot of posts like that on Tumblr. :D Aww that's okay if you don't end up doing it, or take a while to, I just thought it was a fun tag you might like to try :)

  11. haha i think we all went there -- using a crappy eye liner as an eyebrow pencil -- or at least you me and some of my friends. but thats just one of my teenage make makeup mistakes. i also used to apply an entire blush all over my face making me look like a giant strawberry

    1. Really? Haha makes sense I guess. Didn't really know the difference between a brow pencil and an eyeliner back then did we!
