Hey everyone! There’s a great big new collab coming between a great group of bloggers! Interested in learning more about us and my blog in general? Keep reading!
This collab is called Beauties on Fire. We’re a group of around 25 beauty and fashion bloggers from all over the world, and are going to have a post based on a theme every Thursday. (If you want to join, though, you’re more than welcome! Just contact one of us!) We’ll create a link-up so you can read everyone else’s blog, and even if you don’t take part in the collab yourself, you can always vote on each week’s theme via Twitter. This all is being organized by the lovely Elisabeth over at Everything & Nothin’.
1.) Tell us a little about your blog and why you decided to start blogging:
I’m a beauty blogger focusing mostly on makeup, skincare, and sometimes nails. I write reviews and post some looks and tutorials, as well as hauls and empties posts. I started my blog after having too much time on my hands and discovering the world of beauty blogging/vlogging. It was a very spur-of-the-moment decision.
2.) How long have you been blogging?
A little over a year – my blogiversary was June 25 or 26.
3.) Do you consider yourself a fashion blogger, beauty blogger, or both?
I’m a beauty blogger. Fashion just doesn’t really interest me – I’m into a weird alternative style with a lot of guys’ clothes and can count all of the clothes I’ve bought in the past year with my fingers.
4.) List 3 things you love to do besides blogging
I love music – love listening to it and I’ve played the piano for years and am teaching myself guitar and flute. I like listening to rock first and foremost (give me something bluesy, grungy, or metal and I’m happy), but will listen to a lot.
I’m a really big fiction reader and writer (although since blogging has become my main writing endeavor I’ve toned down on writing short stories). I’ve always loved more of a fantasy element, so I’ve always loved things like vampires and fairies and witches.
I also would have to say that I love architecture – I studied it in college, am currently looking for a job in the field, and have always found it interesting. When I was little, I’d draw out floor plans and make roads from Popsicle sticks for toy cars to drive on.
5.) What style of makeup do you enjoy the most? Also, what is one beauty product you can’t live without and why.
I like kind of in-your-face/edgy makeup looks (I blame show makeup taught to me at a young age by a six-foot-something man). I do follow a lot of makeup trends. Some of these below are kind of tame (the top left was meant to be a simple, glam look.
For my favorite product, I’d go with an eyeliner pen – super simple to use, and it’s dark and perfect for any sort of upper-liner look. I’d used the Revlon one for years, and while it’s a very solid one, I’ve more recently tried several others and can’t really say that I have a favorite.
That’s it for this introductory post! Be sure to check out everyone else’s posts – which you can find via Elisabeth’s post here. And don’t forget to keep an eye on the #beautiesonfire hashtag on Twitter and Instagram!
