Would You Rather: Makeup Edition Tag


Hi everyone! I was searching around for ideas on what I could post about today, and I came across the "Would You Rather: Makeup Edition" tag! It looked like fun, so I'm gonna have a go at it!

1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

To be honest, I don't have many palettes! I own both of the Naked Palettes, but I love those with all my heart. So even though I have a lot of lip products, eyeliners, and mascaras, I'd rather lose those than my palettes!

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

I'd rather chop it all off I guess. At least it'd grow back.

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

Could I have a peachy pink cheek? LOL. Peachy pinks are my favorites. I'd probably go with pink though. 

4. If you had $1,000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

As much as I love makeup, I'd definitely rather buy clothes. Fashion is everything to me. 

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick?

Eyeliner as lipstick. They do make pink eyeliner ya know! I think lipstick would be extremely hard to apply to your lashline.

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

Sephora. I love my MAC but Sephora has so much variety.

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?

Probably one eyeshadow color, because I can pull off different lip colors better than I can with different eyeshadow. I'd probably use a champagne or taupe color, because those shades go with practically any lip.

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in the summer or summer clothes in the winter?

Summer clothes in the winter. I hate being hot.

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

This is hard, because I rarely paint my nails anymore. I'm too lazy! I guess I'd go with bright nails.

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

Well, my favorite eye product right now (and probably forever) is my Naked Palette, and my current favorite lip product is MAC's lipstick in Creme Cup. I'd probably have to give up my lipstick. I can't imagine life without my Naked Palette.

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

I hate this question! Ugh. I always wear my hair down, for the most part. I'll go with a ponytail...

12. Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?

Never paint my nails. I love me some lip gloss.

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or Sharpie them in everyday?

Yikes! I guess I would Sharpie them in...with a light hand.

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

Definitely nail polish. I think this answer is pretty obvious. I mean, if it wasn't for makeup, I wouldn't have this blog!

I hope you all enjoyed this tag. Let me know if you want me to do more of them! 

xoxo,
Mackenzie

FOTD 6/27/13: Champagne Shimmer

Hey everyone! Today I went out with some friends to see the new movie Monsters Inc. University, and I decided that I'd share my FOTD (face of the day) with you all! I'd like to point out that I took these photos about nine hours after I actually applied my makeup. Normally I'd do it right after application, but I decided spur of the moment to do this post. 


The photo above was taken right after I did my makeup. (Excuse my silly face, LOL) Since it was just a daytime look, I didn't do anything too dramatic. 

Face: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder, Nars Blush and Bronzer Duo in Orgasm/Laguna

Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion, Urban Decay Naked Palette (Sin on the lid, Toasted in the crease), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Stray Dog (lightly on the waterline), CoverGirl Clump Crusher Mascara

Lips: MAC lipstick in Creme Cup, Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Dandelion 



These photos were taken later on in the night, and the second one was taken with the flash so you can really see the face. The makeup held up well! My only complaint is that this mascara smudges easily, and my eyeliner wore off a bit. Also, I might have over powdered. I love the MAC MSFN, but if you put on too much it can look a little powdery. 

I'd love to hear what you think of this look! It's one of my favorites for everyday wear. I'm sorry I couldn't photograph the actual products, but like I said, this post was done very spontaneously. On that note, have a great day! :)

xoxo,
Mackenzie
