The Beauty Blogger TAG


Today I finally got a chance to write this tag that has been passed on over to me by the lovely Kayla at Microscope Beauty. I find tags really fun, so here goes my take on it:

Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I have been blogging for more than 2 years (3 in a few months) and I mainly started because I had this passion that I had no one to share it with, so I found a perfect place for that. I was really into the Youtuber beauty community, but was too shy at the time to make videos, so I started the blog instead.

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
I honestly cannot remember the exact first one, but I believe it's either Anna Saccone or Fleur de Force.

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product that you bought? Was it worth the hype?
Most likely it was the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation and it is soooo worth the hype. Still one of my favourites!

What are your five favourite things about blogging and being a Beauty Blogger?
1. Having a place to share my passion.
2. Having the chance to improve my photography and get creative with it.
3. Being part of a lovely community and discover new beauty things through it.
4. Having a relaxing hobby that gets me to unwind and enjoy the small things.
5. Having an excuse to buy more beauty products...haha! :)

What have you learnt from being a Beauty Blogger?
That blogging takes time! I always thought being a blogger (or youtuber, for that matter) would be a piece of cake, but to be honest - it's not! I don't mean this in a bad way, but building a blog takes time and the same does the process of creating a blog post. I do enjoy it tons though!

Have you changed anything since becoming a Beauty Blogger?
One thing that changed is my experience with products, makeup, trends etc. And this made me improve my makeup application skills - so I'm definitely not the noob I was at first (I'm not a pro yet either).

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?
Take your time and focus on good content and good pictures, rather than numbers. This does not happen over night! Oh, and don't spam other bloggers - nobody likes that.

What are your top 5 makeup brands?
1. Urban Decay
2. Rimmel
3. Maybelline
4. Sleek
5. Revlon

Recommend your top 5 beauty products:
1. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
2. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
3. Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
4. Essence I Love Style Liquid Eyeliner
5. Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks (I love no. 26 and 107)

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!
