If you take a look at my posts, there are some people I mention quite often, because I genuinely love their blogs.
But one person holds place number one without doubt, and that is the wonderful Agata from Her and Makeup. Not only is her blog well worth a read, but she keeps on tagging me in fun little beauty tags.

So here we go again: The Beauty Scenario Tag!
You have to get rid of all your foundations and only keep one high-end and one drugstore, which do you keep?
This is a tough one.
My high-end pick would be without a second thought Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer (Review here), but I honestly have never tried a drugstore foundation I was excited about.
I´ll keep on testing, but from the ones I tried so far, none would be missed if I didn’t have her.

You go for an interview and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth. Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely?
In my job, most people doing the interviews are men, so I rarely have to deal with this issue. But I guess I would tell her. It is just the two of us in the room, after all.
If there were more people around, I´d ignore the subject, not to draw more attention to this fact.
Thinking about it, I once told my boss (one of the rare female bosses) she had spinach stuck in her teeth.
You are not feeling yourself and you need a pick-me-up lipstick, which do you go for?
A red one, of course.
And out of my humble collection of reds (*cough*) it would most likely be „Va-Va-Voom“ by Astor. It is creamy, it is bright and it is a pencil, which I love because they are easy to apply.

You go back in time for a day to your teenage years, how would you do your hair or makeup differently?
I´d throw out all the foundation I used to buy at least one shade to dark and with heavy coverage. I wanted to look bronzed, and to save money I never did my neck…
But I guess I´d change my skincare regime before everything else if I´d have the chance to go back.
You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length Pixie Lott hair cut but they hear wrong and give you a pixie cut, what do yo do?
A) Smile, say thank you, call your mum and cry hysterically
B) Cry in the chair and things get awkward
C) Complain to the manager and demand a refund
Out of the above, C) is most likely.
I make sure to take pictures of the style I want with me if I go to see a new hairdresser, to avoid any misunderstanding.
If I had to come up with my own reaction to the above mentioned scenario, I´d probably have a good laugh and see it as an opportunity. All my life I have wanted long, luscious locks, and as long as I can remember I have tried to grow my hair, never really liking the state it was in.
Maybe this would be the universe telling me to go with a short do and embrace myself?
Your friend surprises you with a 4 day city break and you have one or to pack, which „Do it all“ Palette do you pack in your makeup bag?
Another tough one.
I don’t own a „Do it all“ palette. Or any multi-purpose palette to begin with. I´d just throw some tried and trusted products in a bag and pick four depotted eyeshadows in my customizable MAC palette.
It would probably look a little like this one. I doubt I´d take less…

Your house has been robbed, don’t worry, everyone is safe, but your beauty stash has been raided. What´s the product you really hope is safe?
My palette containing my depotted MAC eyeshadows (see details here). About 2/3 of them were limited edition and I would miss them dearly.
Apart from that I carry so much makeup in my handbag I´d still own a powder, a blush and about five lip products even if the house burned down.
|I really love all of these shadows, but the depotted ones would be missed the most|
Your friend borrowed makeup and returns it in awful condition. Do you:
A) Pretend you haven’t noticed
B) Ask them to re-purchase it
C) Secretly do it back to their makeup?
Well, it is just makeup, but I would be offended none the less. I´d probably ask what happened, assuming there was a terrible accident like a toddler trying to eat the lipstick.
These things happen, I know that first hand!
But in the end, I´d expect they´d replace it, and I guess my friends would offer that anyways.
