The Makeup Mishaps TAG

Earlier on in the week the lovely Becca tagged me in her new tag that she has just created, the Makeup Mishaps Tag! I've enjoyed reading her blog for quite a while now so I of course had to do this tag. If you don't already follow Becca I really recommend that you take a look at her blog, I love her OOTD posts, I get a lot of inspiration from them, especially as we are only a year apart in age.

You're going to a high end beauty event- would you rather:

Have really thick, dark, sharpie eyebrows or a major neck foundation line?
I have quite fair eyebrows so having very thick dark eyebrows would look horrendous on me. I also have very fair skin so a foundation line wouldn't be very attractive either. I think I'd have to go for the awful foundation line though as I could wear a scarf to attempt to cover it up.

Have chipped nail polish or horribly faded lipstick?
I think I'd rather have faded lipstick as at least I could wipe that off!

Have smudged all your eye makeup or have lipstick on your teeth?
I'd definitely rather have lipstick on my teeth! 

Over highlight -a la disco ball- or over pluck those brows and look constantly surprised?
I have very sparse brows as it is so I'd probably end up with no brows so I'd definitely rather look like a disco ball, lets hope this event is in a dark room!

It's a typical working/school day, and unfortunately your beauty products have gone missing. You can only find a few things hidden at the bottom of your makeup bag, and have to use what you can find. What do you choose?

OOT unsubtle fake lashes or clear mascara?
100% clear mascara, fake lashes don't suit me so I can't imagine having massive OOT lashes on! I'd rather go mascara free.

A foundation five shades too dark or five shades too light?
I have pale skin so there is no way I could get away with using a foundation 5 shades too dark, I'd definitely rather use something too light for my skin.

Hair gloss (a beautifully sticky gloss: perfect for getting your hair stuck to in the wind) or gorgeous concealer lips?
As much as I hate concealer lips I'd have to go with that, the idea of having sticky hair does not appeal to me!

Finally, it's the middle of Summer - you can have either a manicure or a pedicure. However, the other set of nails have to be bare- what do you pick?
Definitely a pedicure, I can live without having colour on my finger nails but during the Summer bare toe nails is a no-no!

I don't tag anyone in particular, I tag everyone who is reading this!

Thanks for reading,

  1. Hi! How do you like the "Naked" eyeshadow palettes? I feel like those palettes BLEW UP over night, and I try and stay away from things that get over-popular, but I've heard mixed messages about their eyeshadows, and I'd love to hear your opinion! Personally, I use MAC eyeshadow. I've always been a MAC user, even for foundation, but it's a little pricey. Does Urban Decay offer a better price / value?

    1. I have the Naked2 palette and I adore it! I've currently got one MAC eyeshadow and I have to say I think UD are a little better but I have only tried one MAC shadow so far so can't comment on that too much. I would recommend the Naked palettes though :) x
