I’m still super new to the blogging world, but I was nominated by the wonderful Charlotte Amanda who is also a beauty blogging newbie – so thank you so much for that!
So how did my blog start?
I started my blog because I absolutely love makeup. I love buying it, collecting it, playing with it, and spend hours every week watching tutorials and reviews on youtube, as well as reading about it. I thought it would be fun to write about my own experience with makeup as someone with zero makeup skills or training, just as someone with makeup as a hobby.
I don’t think I’m anywhere near the stage of giving about advice about blogging, but what I would say is that what I enjoy to read on other blogs is an honest critique of makeup. I find it helpful to have comparisons with other products when reviewing new items, as it helps the reader identify if they have similar tastes to the blogger, and would therefore agree with their opinion of a new product. The main thing though I think is to write about what interests you and what you enjoy. It shouldn’t seem like a chore or an effort, so don’t force yourself into writing unless you are really passionate about what you have to say. I think that comes across in the best blogs.
My nominees are…
