I recently came across this tag and I thought it would be fun to do. It’s the This or That Tag beauty edition! I’d love it if you guys would do it as well, I’d love to see your answers. I tag you, go go!
1. Blush or Bronzer?
This is hard for me. Because I’m quite pale I need that little flush to my cheeks to bring some colour into my face. But since I have a slightly rounder face I need bronzer to slim my features. I’d have to go with blush though.
2. Lipgloss or Lipstick?
If you had of asked me a few months ago I would have said lip gloss, hands down. But I’ve been on a lipstick kick lately and have been purchasing quite a few. I have a new found love for lipsticks, and at this current moment I’d have to side with them.
3. Matte or Sparkle Eye Shadow?
Sparkle, definitely. I love metallic finish eye shadows, and glitter. You can never have enough glitter and sparkle in your life.
4. Gel, Liquid, Cream or Pencil Eyeliner?
I have always been partial to liquid liner. I find it quite easy to apply, however sometimes it settles into the lines of my eyes. I just purchased MAC’s Blacktrack Fluidline a while ago and I’ve been loving the smooth texture and the precision it gives me when I apply it with the 210 brush. I’m going to go with gel for this one!
5. Foundation or Concealer?
Foundation, foundation, foundation! I have an uneven skin tone, and have some redness on my cheeks and chin. I just love that foundation evens out my skin and gives me that “your skin looks amazing!” appearance.
6. Liquid or Powder Foundation?
Liquid. I have very dry skin (sigh) and cannot use any sort of powder foundation or setting powder on my face. I will end up with a cakey mess and it’s not pretty.
7. Neutral or Statement Eyes?
Statement! My eyes are my favourite feature of my face and I like to play them up as much as I can.
8. Pressed or Loose Eye Shadows?
Loose eye shadows, however I think you all know that by now! I love how they perform wet, or dry and are extremely versatile. They are just amazing, enough said!
9. Waterproof or Non-Waterproof Mascara?
Waterproof. My mascara always tends to smudge on my lower lash line and it drives me nuts, so I prefer to go with a waterproof formula mascara.
10. Brushes, Sponges or Fingers?
A dampened sponge. I recently picked up the Sonia Kashuk Beauty Sponge and have been loving the application with it so far! Brushes with my dry skin just do not go well together
11. Powder or Liquid Highlighter?
This is a toss up. They both look amazing on the skin. I do have an abundance of powder highlighters, so I’ll go with that!
I really enjoyed doing this tag, it was a lot of fun! I have never really thought about what items I would use over another one, so it was interesting and took some thought! This tag has inspired me to do a “This or That” post every so often where I share products that are high end and give you budget alternatives. It’s a great way to find dupes/alternatives for products that you love that will cost you a fraction of the price. What do you guys think?
I hope you have a fabulous week, and I’ll talk to you soon!
