8 Beauty Blogger Questions

Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I've started a few blogs over the years but I lost motivation, much like I seem to have done with this one recently. It never takes me long to get to the 'but I have nothing new to say' stage. 

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
I fell in love with youtube first. I didn't really start reading blogs until I created my own and then I started finding really amazing blogs through Instagram. I'm currently really loving 'Zoe the Dreamer' and 'Dainty Alice'

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product you bought and was it worth the hype?
I don't tend to buy into hype, mainly because of how expensive that is. I feel like hyped products are, more often than not, higher end products and I certainly don't have the money for that. I suppose the Collection lasting perfection concealer is a good one. I've been using that since I learned what concealer was. 

What have you learnt from being a beauty blogger?  
That you don't need to splurge to get good quality. Dupe videos are some of my favourite to binge watch on Youtube.

Have you changed anything since being a beauty blogger? 
I wear a lot more makeup. I wouldn't bother with things like primer if I didn't have this blog because I wouldn't really know what it was. I try more new products as well. L'Oreal True Match was my ride or die foundation until blogging and I would just continuously repurchase that but thanks to other people reviewing what they love I've got about 5 others in rotation and I love them all. 

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?
Joining twitter chats is a great way to get noticed. I need to take my own advice here because I'm so bad and remembering they're on.
