Beauty Bloggers - Why We Fell In Love With Make-Up

I love how make-up can bond a group of women, and the power that putting your face on in the morning has. I wanted to explore our relationship with make-up a little more, and thought I should turn to the ladies who love make-up the most - Beauty Bloggers!

1. Can you tell us a bit about your relationship with make-up?

My relationship with makeup started when I watched my older cousins wearing it and also my aunties, I would often ask if they wanted to practise on me. I learned to wear makeup from them as my mum never wore makeup.

2. Do you have a staple make up look?

Yes, my three must have makeup looks are liquid Foundation (light base), black eyeliner but not too much, and of course not forgetting my cream blusher, in a pinkish/reddish colour.

3. Why do you love make-up?

I love makeup because it changes the look of me and gives me more confidence when I go out - just adding a bit of foundation and blusher changes me, if am feeling down I would get my makeup done and it would make me feel a lot more better. Its amazing what makeup does.

4. Is there anything you haven't quite perfected with your make up routine yet?

At the minute I am struggling to get my eye shadow right, as I like adding different colours to one eye but this doesn’t always turn out the way I would like it to. My other struggle is definitely my eyebrows as I am not to sure what shape suits my face and the best way to contour them. I usually manage to get one eyebrow the way I would like it but can never get the other one right!

5. Describe your blog:

My blog is for girly girls who love makeup, hair and clothes. On my blog you will find different things about makeup and hair. I post outfits to showwhat I wore some days. I also post pictures of my makeup. You will also find on my blog different things I have tried out and designs I have done on my nails.

6. Are there any blogs that give you inspiration?

I wouldn’t say I have a particular blog that is an inspiration but I do read some blogs and some of them are really good, they are very similar to what I like, which is good for me. I love reading blogs especially if the person is similar to me.

7. What do you like about blogging?

I like blogging because its fun to do! Some people might not find it fun but I do. I also like blogging because when I write about something I know I am helping another person maybe if I do a review someone will read it and find it very helpful. That makes me feel good, knowing that I’ve helped someone.

8. Why did you start?

I started blogging because I knew in my head it was going to be fun and it would help others, another reason why I started would be because a girl on my twitter had a blog and I read it and it was good, I talked to her about me doing one, then I just decided yeah why not and made one up. Firstly I was thinking oh goodness I have no followers and no idea how to design it...what’s the point in doing this but I stayed strong and said to myself I'll get some and I did, I am proud of myself!
