Beauty Blogger Tag

I'm here with another tag as it's late on a Sunday night but I really wanted to blog! I hadn't realised the time had crept up and it's been a while since my last post, college has been crazy busy coming up to Christmas and then with Birthday's and Wedding's blogging was the last thing on my mind!

This is the Beauty Blogger tag that I found when I googled those exact words, please do do the tag and link me it in the comments! 

Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I started a blog agesss ago but didn't really get into is then when my best friend Claire (her blog) I started up again and once more stopped. Then I went to a blogger meetup and from there I have loved blogging as it's another way to talk to like minded people and about the stuff a lot of friends get bored of hearing(not all beauty fan's.. cray cray I know!).

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
Apart from Claire's? Sarah or adoreabubbles as she was a youtuber first like me and was the organiser of the blogger met up I attended. She would be one of my closest friends that I've met through YouTube and blogging

Most important part about doing a blog post?
That you like what you're writing. Every now and then I read a post that I know is sponsored and you  can tell their making up that they like the product so that is very important. I also think good pictures(says the one with no picture's on this post!) 

What kind of camera do you use?
I use a canon s90, my iPhone 4 and a Nikon DSLR that I don't know which one. I am getting a Nikon D5100 soon though.

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product you bought and was it worth the hype?
Definitely the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I would never have thought of getting it if it wasn't for the great reviews

What are your favourite five things about blogging and being a beauty blogger?

1) Meeting great woman(mostly) and talking to them on twitter and through comments

2) Blabbing on about what I want to talk about and getting some of those emotions out on the key board

3) Sometimes I get sent free things(very, very rare) which to me is the coolest thing in the world and is the most fun! I haven't had one thing that I haven't really liked yet either 

4) It's nice to not have to get all done up like would for a youtube video 

5) Every time I get a comment it makes my day or a new follower especially on the blog as I do find I get more traffic easier on YouTube so when it happens on here I'm all like WOW

What have you learned from being a beauty blogger?
That it's a nicer place to be then YouTube.(I've had no hate where as on YouTube...), There are so many wonderfully talented people out there writing about stuff that I like and we can talk and get excited about things and that I'm not as good at writing as I thought I was in school..

Have you changed anything since being a beauty blogger?
I've learned how to do things on a computer more. As is I was always computer savy but I'm learning things that are slightly more difficult like HTML. My cousin designs websites and she taught it all to herself which is amazing so I'd love to be able to a little bit of that side of things!

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?
Keep at it. It's a slow process and I'm still climbing but it's fun! Talk to other bloggers you need to stick together and support each other. There's no point wishing people will comment on your blog if you don't do the same and I mean genuine comments that are to do with their post!

Your Favorite Eyeshadow Palette?
My Urban Decay Naked palette or my inglot freedom system palette

The Best Beauty Deal?
Essence I heart stage eye primer all though I haven't been using eye primer for ages!

Makeup Regrets?
Elizabeth Arden foundation compact

Name your top five Beauty brands!

Recommend your top five favourite beauty products! 
  • Urban Decay Naked Palette
  • Revlon Color Stay Foundation
  • Eldora false lashes

And that's that! I hope you guys enjoy this, I hope to have a few 'proper' posts up soon including a post I've been writing for weeks but is a very topical one so i have to be careful on how I write it.(nothing to do with beauty either) 
Sorry if this post makes no sense I am half asleep...

Until next time, 
I hope you're all well and I'll talk to you soon,
