Beauty Blogger TAG

I have been catching up on the blogs I follow and have found this tag relating to beauty bloggers! I thought I would give it a go too considering how obsessed with makeup I am...

I like to mix up my posts from fashion to beauty to bits and bobs of everything so today can be a beauty day.. here goes!

Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I started blogging earlier this year (February to be precise!) and I guess I started as I started reading other blogs and really enjoyed it so I thought I would give writing my own a try. I can honestly say that since starting and taking it seriously I have not looked back, nor has blogging become a chore!

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?

It has to be blogging queen Lily Melrose's blog- LLYMLRS!

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product you bought and was it worth the hype?
It was Models Own Nail Polish.. never even really heard of it before Blogs and now it is one of my favourite brands of nail polish. Cheap, very high quality and a fantastic range of colours.

What are your favourite things about blogging and being a beauty blogger?
I used to really suffer with adult acne and makeup was an absolute necessity for me in covering it up. When you have had a crappy time, sometimes putting your 'face' on is part and parcel of facing the world when inside you might not really feel like it. But life carries on and sometimes you need a little helping hand!

An important part of blogging for me is being able to read between the lines of the marketing spiel and get opinions and feedback from real people as to whether something works on a specified issue or problem.

I also get super excited about the smallest beauty purchase and it's been fab getting to know some really nice people who are just the same :o)   

What have you learnt from being a beauty blogger?
Never judge an item on how much it costs. My favourite moisturiser is good old E45 Lotion and it is mega cheap.

Fill in your eyebrows - you will thank me for this tip one day.

Have you changed anything since being a beauty blogger?
I am possibly even more high maintenance now than before however I have got my go to products that make the process a little more time effective!

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?

What have you got to lose? Ignore any haters/internet trolls and just have fun. Don't worry about the page views, if 10 people read your blog and you have regular correspondence with them then fantastic! Don't be someone you are not as it always comes across and you won't sound credible.. just be yourself!

  1. Haha, this made me laugh as I know I've definitely become more high maintenance since I started blogging too - and unfortunately spending far too much onproducts has come hand in hand with that! I did actually use to be really reasonable with makeup and only buy what I needed, as and when. Well, gone are those days, sadly!
