Beauty Blogger TAG

Hello loves. This is a tag post from so so so long ago haha, I think being a mix of beauty, fashion and life style blog is a lovely mix, so I thought I would do the Beauty Blogger tag. I love tags, they are so fun thinking up the answers and I love reading them! So, let's get into the questions...

Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I started blogger because I constantly read and watched them and really wanted to get involved, I have always loved writing so this is a great outlet. I have had loads of blogs before, I just stopped posting after a while, so I started in the last year of high school and now and in the first year of uni so, 3 ish years on and off! 

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
The first one my friend showed me was Lily Melrose (, I first saw her how to ombre as she was the first person I saw to do that so a long time ago. So I think that Lily's Blog was the first blog I really loved and found inspiring.

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product that you bought? Was it worth the hype?
Hmm I have so many! I think it either has to be the first naked pallet that I still use every single day, I am OBSESSED with it! It also could have been the holy grail that is Collections Lasting Perfection 16 hour Concealer (mouthful). I had it way back when it was Collection 2000! I still love that too! Everything I have bought into I have tried and made sure I liked it before I bought it. 
What are you five favourite things about blogging and being a Beauty Blogger?
I love Writing the posts, its nice to relax and write about something that you love and feel something about after a long day of writing economic notes at Uni
I love seeing trends before they hit, and everyones unique style or take on a trend, it really makes me want to push the boundaries of what I where and try new things!
I like the Comments I get, because they show you that your doing something that other people like and want to read which is always a bonus. 
 I love reaching targets of followers, I love this as again it shows you that people like your blog post and want to read the dribble coming out of my mouth! 
I love the doors blogging opens for you. Blogging is essentially something you do for free, off your own back and yet it looks great on a CV and impresses potential employers, allows you to meet new people, come into contact with companies and PR people , I really want to get into marketing so this is so great for me! 

What have you learnt from being a Beauty Blogger? 
How much I like writing and getting my opinion in my little internet bubble. I also have learnt that I give into hype and will buy anything suggested by people. Also It has reminded my how much money I spend on clothes and beauty things, my god!! 

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out? 
Do it your way! Don't compare yourself to other bloggers, don't try to be other bloggers and don't worry if you don't get thousands of followers in two weeks. The follower number doesn't matter, it's amazing when you hit a milestone, whether it's 50 followers or 5000 followers - as long as you have loyal followers who enjoy your posts, that's the main thing.
What are your top 5 makeup brands?
MAC - Duh. It's a cliche but when it comes to lipstick and eyeshadow, nothing compares. It's also not hugely over priced in comparison to other brands too.
17 - At the moment I love this, the lipsticks are amazing and its so cheap and cheerful!
Soap & Glory - One of my fave high street brands. Obviously I have a whole post on it!
No. 7 - I love there foundation matcher it is so easy to use and I get such great customer service there!
Topshop - Another fab high street brand, the nail polishes are gorgeous and their lipsticks are amazing!

Hope you enjoyed this little tag!
I'd love to know if you've done any tag posts lately as I love to read them - I tag you ALL so let me know if you do this!
