I have always loved watching tag videos on Youtube but feel like they would be so boring in blog form so when I saw a new tag made by Sophia especially for beauty bloggers I was super happy that I can finally do a tag.
Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I started blogging about 2 years ago although I only really became interested in my blog this year. I had been watching youtube videos and reading blogs for ages before I started my blog. I think I was talking to someone on Twitter when I decided to start me own because of my love for writing and beauty.
Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
I read a lot and I mean a lot of blogs but I do remember who's blogs I first fell in love with and inspired me to make my own. I stumbled upon all four of these blogs after I started to read blogs and these were my favourites.
Sinead from DaintyDollymix
Laura from BellesBoutique
Fleur from Fleurdeforce
Sabrina from Alittleobsessed
What was the first blogosphere hyped about product you bought and was it worth the hype?
The first product I gave into the hype and bought was the Revlon Lip Butters. It is one of the most hyped up products ever and even though everyone loved them I couldn't just take their word for it and had to try them for myself and I am so glad I did. The colour range is great and they are one of my favourite lip products.
What are your favourite five things about blogging and being a beauty blogger?
I love being able to say what I want about what I want on my little space of the internet. I love writing about beauty products as I need to get my opinions out in the open and none of my friends care about make up so don't listen to me go on about it.
I love talking to other bloggers on twitter and in comments. There are several other bloggers who I talk to all the time on Twitter whether its about a new mascara or about things in our lives.
The blogging community is amazing. I love commenting on other blogs and receiving comments on my own. I also love taking part in the #bbloggers chat on twitter every Sunday.
I love reviewing products especially ones I have repurchased and loved and hearing that others have bought the product and loved it too. I also like reviewing products I don't like and seeing that they work for other people with different skin types if its skincare or a different skin tone if its make up.
Until I started blogging I had never heard of Liz Earle and now her products are staples in my skincare routine. I suppose that this has happened with many other brands too especially ethical skincare brands. So I have discovered lots of new brands and products.
What have you learnt from being a beauty blogger?
I have learnt that everyone doesn't have the same opinion of products. I always read multiple posts on a product before I purchase it to see what others think but I know that even if everyone else likes something, I may not.
Have you changed anything since being a beauty blogger?
I have changed the whole way I apply make up and have completely changed to tools I use to apply it. I have learnt new techniques from watching videos and blog tutorials.
What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?
I would say that you have to enjoy blogging or it just won't work. If your interested in other things too such as baking or sport include posts about those topics too just to mix it up a bit and make things more interesting.
Name your top five brands!
My top 5 overall brands would be Liz Earle for skincare, MUA and Collection (2000) for makeup, Soap and Glory, for body care and Batiste for hair.
Recommend your top five favourite beauty products!
For body products I would say the soap and glory clean on me shower gel. For hair the Naked orange lollies detangling spray and Batiste. For makeup the MUA eyeshadow pallettes and Collection 2000 blush.
