The Beauty Blogger Tag; Get to Know Me

Hi guys, today’s blogpost is a little different, I thought I’d do the beauty blogger tag so you could get to know my blog and I a bit better. I decided to create my own tag so I could tailor the questions to suit me better and I often find tag posts are very long so I wanted to keep this short and sweet with only 5 questions.

Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
My first ever blogpost was published on the 20th November 2014 but I wasn’t actively posting on my blog till January of the next year. I have taken a couple of breaks with my blog but overall I’ve remained pretty consistent. I started blogging as a hobby, I didn’t do any activities outside of school, so didn’t have anything to do in my free time. I’ve always been quite an introverted person and not great socially so my blog gave me the means of socialising without my awkwardness getting in the way. I’m quite a artistic person in terms of my ideas so the satisfaction I got from planning then creating blogposts was immense. 

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
It took me a long time to delve into the beauty blogging community as I simply didn’t know it existed. After signing up to bloglovin I discovered so many new blogs that I wouldn’t have know existed without it. However, my first love when it comes to a blog was Gabb Thomas’, she was my first ever blogging friend and my first ever collab so her blog holds a special place in my heart. 

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product that you bought? Was it worth the hype?
I’m so easily influenced into buying products by other people’s reviews so pretty much everything I buy is because another beauty blogger has raved about it. When I visited Rome I bought some of my first ever high end makeup, the Naked palette and Nars copacabana illuminator, I purchased them after hearing amazing reviews so I guess they were my first hype spurred buy. I wrote about them in my Rome duty free makeup haul (linked here) if you want to check it out. They were definitely worth the hype as nearly a year later I still use them both frequently and continually use them over my newer comparable products. 

What is your favourite thing about blogging and being a Beauty Blogger?
Making blogging friends – there is honestly nothing better to me than making blogging friends online who understand what you do and love the same things you do. Doing collabs is my definitely favourite thing as I love interacting with other bloggers. 

What are your top 5 makeup brands?
1) Mac
2) Benefit
3) Urban Decay
4) Nars 
5) Too Faced

Hope you enjoyed this blogpost! It’s a little bit different but overall I just hope that you feel you know me a little bit better. 

What is your favourite ever makeup brand?
