This may have been done in the past but with so many new faces I haven't seen before I wanted to ask.  If you were a makeup item which would you be?  What colour what you be?  And why?  As for me I would be a vegan lipstick in a matte finish in violet purple.  The why would be because it stands out and shows my bright but bold personality.  It's not shy to be different and outside the box. And go........

What an interesting question! I think I'd want to be a mattifying setting spray. It suits my personality the most, it's not too out there, and it's not loud and bright. But it's essential to pulling the look together and keeping everything in place. And also it canhelp you look good all through the day/night. Plus it lasts for ages which means I'll have a long life!

A surprisingly difficult question. I would probably be a glittering gold eyeshadow because I like the shine and I think everybody needs a little gitter now and again. In the perfect world the eyeshadow would also be cruelty free because I hate animal testing, as well as use natural ingredients but be long lasting because that would be my perfect eyeshadow.

bright pink lipstick.

doesn't matter what's happening behind the scenes, put a polished, finished, outgoing face on it and you can get through.


Story of my life.

I asked the man what makeup product he thinks I would be... I got a shrug and a "I don't know. Annoying?"

I think I would be a lip balm. Just another lip balm milling around in the bottom of the bag, hissing at sunlight, preferring to be lost rather than stacked with other lip balms. I think that like a lipbalm I am plain on the inside yet my appearance is bright, eye catching and friendly.

Probably a CC cream - I'm always trying not to stand out, so matching myself to the wallpaper seems the most likely bet.

ha difficult but fun question! I think maybe I'd be waterproof mascara - one of the ones that quietly give a bit if curl and volume, but not too much. Waterproof =  resilience and stickability, and lord knows I've had to have that all my life, whatever the weather or tears (at least my mascara stays on and makes me look not completely crap!).....and while I prefer to not stand out too much, I do lend a bit of va va voom when needed.
Also, I personally can't live wthout mascara - it gives me confidence.

I would like to be a highlighter, since I can't go out without one on or a stand out lippy as a second choice

probably a highlighter. It gives a beautiful color boost on skin and enhance the bone structure as well.
