beauty tag: this or that?

I was recently tagged by the incredible Cherrytruth Blog to take part in the beauty tag: this or that? Beauty tags can be super fun, so I encourage everyone to give this one a shot! Without further ado, here are my answers to the beauty tag: this or that? 


Blush or bronzer? Blush, blush, a thousand times, blush! I may be a bit of a blush junkie. I have so many different shades - it really is an addition! I cannot go out without it.
Lipgloss or lipstick? Lipstick - I find a lot of glosses can feel sticky and goopy, so I tend to stick with lipstick most of the time.
Liner or mascara? Liner! Eyeliner is my absolute must-have when it comes to makeup/life.
Foundation or concealer? Foundation, for sure. I like my skin tone nice and even.
Neutral Eyeshadow or colour? Neutral for sure. Love neutral eyeshadow shades.
Pressed or loose eyeshadow? Pressed - it is so much easier to work with.

Nails and Body: 

OPI or China Glaze? OPI, easily
Long or short nails? Long, but mine tend to be shorter than I'd like because I always break them at work. Ugh!
Acrylic or natural? I love the look of acrylic, but I've never actually had them. I would love to, though.
Brights or darks? Brights are always fun!
Flower or no flower? No flower?
Perfume or body splash? Well, I do love my I would go with perfume.
Lotion or body butter? I love body butter - it makes my skin super soft.
Body wash or soap? Always, always body wash!
Lush or other bath company? Other - Bath & Bodyworks is a must.


Jeans or sweat pants? When I'm at home, I am all about the sweat pants. Anytime that I am out somewhere, jeans, always!
Long sleeve or short sleeve? Short sleeve! Except when it's cold, in which case - sleeves!
Dresses or skirts? Dresses. I love skirts as well, but dresses are less complicated and super pretty. Love love love my dresses.
Stripes or plaid? Plaid! I have such a weakness for plaid.
Flip flops or sandals? Sandals! I hate flip flops because they always seem to fall off of my feet.
Scarves or hats? I actually don't wear either all that much, though I always mean to. I have some great scarves and hats that just lay around my room, unworn. I should change this!
Studs or dangly earrings? Oh, I love both! Studs for every day, dinners, etc. and dangly ones for getting dressed up and going out.
Heels or flats? I adore heels. I love love love them. Unfortunately, I'm not stellar at walking in them, but I continue to improve!
Cowboy boots or riding boots? Cowboy boots are always cute.
Jacket or hoodie? Hoodies are super comfy.
Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe? Forever 21 is my absolute favourite place to shop. Love!
Abercrombie or Hollister? I don't particularly care for either.


Curly or straight? Curly, I think!
Bun or ponytail? Bun - I think they look so chic and cute.
Bobby pinks or butterfly clips? Bobby pins are a girls best friend.
Hairspray or gel? Hairspray!
Long or short? Long, for sure.
Light or dark? Dark.
Side sweep or full bangs? I've tried both, and I definitely found side swept bangs were easier to wear and softer on my face.
Up or down? Down.


Rain or shine? Shine - of course!
Summer or winter? Summer. Oh, I am longing for summer right now.
Fall or spring? Hmm, maybe fall because it's my birthday in the fall!
Chocolate or vanilla? Chocolate. I LOVE chocolate.
East or west coast? Well, I just don't know....east?

So there you have it! Have you done the beauty this or that tag yet?
