I was doing some badly needed catch up reading from the blogs I follow, today, and I was catching up on V’s blog, and I saw this post.
It was so fun, and not completely-beauty-centric, so I actually have opinions on most of them (at least I thought I did… sorry.), so I thought, hey, why not? 🙂
Blush or Bronzer?
Bronzer, but I’d prefer neither. On second thought, I’ve always liked blush, but I prefer not to use either (look-wise), but since my stage-performance days I got used to blush, and kind of really love the idea of using it. 🙂
Lipgloss or Lipstick?
Totally lipgloss. All natural kinda theme, but if I want to make a statement, lipstick. And it in a dark red, because it always comes out just right on me. I’m kind of branching out, while trying to hold onto my root thinking, as well.
Eyeliner or Mascara?
Eyeliner!! I’ve found I really like the stuff, actually. Hahaha…
Foundation or Concealer?
Oy. Neither? Foundation, but really light!
Neutral or Colour Eyeshadow?
Oh, haha! I love doing a great Black/grey look, but I totally love my colors, too (because I just generally like color). I think I’ll say neutral.
Brushes or Sponges?
Um. Brushes? I don’t really know. (You can tell my total lack of make-up personal knowledge, by this question!)
OPI or China Glaze?
I haven’t actually used either, I just have been eyeing buying OPI since I learned it was a more natural/earth-friendly polish.
Long or Short?
Long! Not creepy long, just pick-up-card well. Don’t want to impair my ability to be a floundering crazy Speed opponent!
Acrylic or Natural?
Oy vey, I can hear the clacking now. – really though, feel free to wear acrylic, I just don’t have good experience with it. – Natural!
Brights or Darks?
Oh, dear. You’ve dug into my faux-goth side again. I love the semblance of darks on me – but in real life, I’m afraid of concerning people because I don’t want to combine too many black things together (although they tend to go well with my skin tone? or something?). So, I’d say Brights, because I like to cheer people up with my nail art.
Perfume or Body Spray?
Er, I don’t really know!
Lotion or Body Butter?
Um. Again. What is body butter? And lotion? haha! that’s for people who remember!
I’m actually looking into purchasing some body lotion soon. I’m super excited, too, because it’s from Desert Essence and so it’s all biodegradable and friendly to body, earth, and everything, and because it comes in Lime & Coconut!!
Can you dig it? Every time I apply it, it can be a reminder of Bones, and a reminder of Bones is a reminder of all the lessons I’ve learned in Bones! 🙂 Haha, I’m weird.
Body Wash or Soap?
There’s a difference?!?
Lush or Other Bath Store?
What is this Lush you speak of? (Sorry V! I know you keep mentioning them, and love their products, but I have not yet had the pleasure of trying them. 🙂 )
Jeans or Sweatpants?
Jeans! Since needing to find replacement pants, and working in animal establishments, I’ve come to re-like jeans. I really like my like-wash, boot-cut, stretch jeans. I usually like the look of dark-wash, but these jeans are just awesome.
Long Sleeved or Short?
I’m with V. Depends on the season, right?
However, in a way, I do wear short-sleeves all year long. Silly of me, but I have T-shirts that I enjoy galore, and my fashion setting is confined to which slogan I wear that day with jeans or with velvet? And always for bed it’s short-sleeves, especially in Winter.
Dresses or Skirts?
Oy. Um. I like dresses because they are all one thing, and skirts tend to be bi-secting. However, I own more skirts than dresses.
Stripes or Plaid?
Oi! Idk at all! (I don’t own either…)
Flip Flops or Sandals?
Is Crocs an option? I actually own a pair of (Skecher’s) “Crocs”. I didn’t mean to, but I started wearing them all the time (started with an injury), and I wore them all winter long. (Yes, we’ve now established I’m crazy. 😉 )
Scarves or Hats?
Hey, hey! I actually have one I like better, for this! — SCARVES! Benedict Cumberbatch and Ioan Gruffudd just reinforce my already leaning toward them. All the fashion looks re-reinforce the lean. I like seeing what is possible by adding or adjusting a scarf.
Oh, and BT is the biggest scarf connisseur. He adjusts my scarf to make it look right. He also has an awesome friend who made him a totally manly scarf that doesn’t leave his side on cold days.
Studs or Dangly Earrings?
Hahahahah! Sometimes when I think of these things on me, I just realize how much I do not do in the world of “normal”.
I like … um… stars? (I don’t have pierced ears, and my ears are more sensitive than an open wound, and so every option I’ve ever tried has crashed and burned. I absolutely think earings look delightful! But I unfortunately cannot tolerate any non-peirced option.)
Necklaces or Bracelets?
Ooh! Chokers – I mean Necklaces! Bracelets are a no-no for me due to…– (OOH! 21 Guns just came on! I like this song altogether too much. Why do I like it? I don’t even know what it means!) –… because I do a lot with animals and the bracelets catch on their hair, (and mine), are in my way, and they make noise, and I bang them into stuff, and I can’t wash dishes well with them. I’m just too clumsy and deal with too much hair for bracelets for me. 🙂 (Another reason I like short-sleeves.)
Now “hair” I might have something. Ah hahaha.
Curly or Straight?
Straight! I’ve always kind of wanted Jennifer Aniston-style hair. Not gonna happen, but I’m learning what it is my hair wants to do. It hasn’t been clear about what it is yet.
Bun or Ponytail?
Long or Short?
Light or Dark?
Um, you mean me? Or preference?
Side Swept or Full Bangs?
Side swept! It’s a new trend it seems, but I think it’s a pretty cool one. (And one my all-one-length hair does not have.)
Up or Down?
Oy vey. Ponytail up, and otherwise, down. It really depends on the hour and mood. Sometimes I absolutely cannot have it up anymore, and other times, I must needs put it up.
What about you??
