This Or That?

I thought for my first proper post, I would do one that would help you understand me a little more. It will give you an insight into my view on everything beauty related! By the way I didn't write this, I found it on my Facebook News Feed so feel free to copy it and use it yourself!

Blusher or bronzer?
Bronzer all the way! It stops me from looking like a blank potato and adds definition!

Lip gloss or lipstick?

Lipstick as it lasts longer and they have more matte shades. Plus, lipgloss gets annoying and sticks to everything!

Eyeliner or mascara? 
Mascara by far. I've not yet perfected winged eyeliner and people always notice when I'm not wearing mascara!

Foundation or concealer?
Foundation as I prefer a full coverage all round.

Neutral or colour eye shadow?
Neutral as they suit any look and most lipsticks go well with it!

Pressed or loose eye shadow?
Pressed purely because I own more of them.

Brushes or sponges?
If I had to choose; brushes because they are practical for everything. However, I love using a sponge on my concealer.

OPI or china glaze?
OPI because I've always had a better experience with them and they have a wider range of colours.

Long or short?
Long all the way. I struggle with everyday tasks without long nails as I'm so used to them now.

Acrylic or natural?
I guess my answer would be acrylic? I hate my natural nails and always have Fibre Glass nails on which are the same as acrylics but don't damage your nails and can be soaked off. (Might do a blogpost of these!)

Bright's or darks?
I love pastel shades but the majority of my clothes are dark and a dark lip always looks good.

Perfume or body splash?
Perfume, however some are ridiculously over priced.

Lotion or body butter?
Body butter is better for the skin but lotion as it sinks in faster and smell better.

Body wash or soap?
Body wash as they're fresh and always help wake me up in the mornings.

Lush or any other bath company?
Lush because it smells so good.

Jeans or sweat pants?
I live in jeans. I don't know what I would do without them.

Long sleeve or short?
Long, because they're cosier and make an outfit look cute.

Dresses or skirts?
Skirts. They're so much easier to work with and can be worn more often, with a different top.

Stripes or plaid?

Stripes. It's simple but cute.

Flip flops or sandals?
Sandals. Primark have the best range and they are amazing prices!

Scarves or hats?
Scarves as I don't suit hats much and scarves make you feel cosy.

Studs or dangly earrings? 
I don't own a pair of dangly earrings so it would have to be studs.

Necklaces or bracelets? 
Bracelets such as charm bracelets. One of mine remembers a different person for each charm.

Heels or flats?
Heels make an outfit so much more glamorous, no matter how much I complain.

Cowboy boots or riding boots?
I don't ride so I guess cowboy. with jeans a cute checked flannel, they would look great!

Jacket or hoodie?
Jacket because I can undo them and I look like a hobo in a hoodie.

Abercrombie or Hollister?
Hollister because it is prettier and more floral. However, I miss Gilly Hicks! They're underwear was my favourite ever!

Curly or straight?
CURLY 100%. Well when I can be bothered to do it.

Bun or ponytail?
Ponytail. Both make me look like an egg but ponytail tends to less.

Bobby pins or butterfly clips?
Bobby pins can do more, they can be used for so many different styles.

Hair spray or gel?
Hair spray. I hate the feel of gel.

Long or short?
Both look gorgeous but for myself, long hair.

Light or dark?
I would love to go light but it just wouldn't suit me (well my eyebrows!) so I would have to say dark.

Side sweep bangs or full bangs?
Supporting the side sweep here as I used to have them when I was younger.

Up or down?
I prefer it down as it's a lot more natural, but when I get hope it's straight up into a pony!

I hope this will let you get to know me a little better!
