Where are you located? Richmond, VA (for now! I’m applying to grad school in the UK for the fall.)
Tell us a little about yourself: I have a BA in Creative Writing from Longwood University and moved to Richmond a year after graduation for a job. Right now, I work from home as a freelance writer so I have lots of time to play with makeup.
When did you start your blog? July 2013
Why did you decide to start blogging? I started blogging about makeup because my boyfriend got tired of hearing me talk about makeup so I figured I’d just write it all down in a blog instead. I also wanted to create a blog that talked about buying tons of makeup and doing great makeup on a really small budget because while a lot of beauty bloggers do “drugstore makeup looks” every now and then, all of us can’t realistically spend $19 on a tube of lipstick (as much as I would love to be able to.)
Where are your favorite places to shop for makeup in RVA? Ulta, Target, and Etsy. I’ve got my eye on some Indie brands on there that I’m DYING to try. I wish I could say somewhere a little trendier.
Top 3 favorite blogs to read:
– My Subscription Addiction (mysubscriptionaddiction.com) makes me want to subscribe to all the beauty boxes ever.
– Essie Button (http://www.essiebutton.com/). I love her blog because of all of her product reviews. She also crossed the pond to the UK so I love seeing UK brands that I’ll be able to buy while I’m over there.
– A Beautiful Mess (http://www.abeautifulmess.com/) because I love their DIY ideas.
How would you describe your makeup style? I wear a lot of black and a lot of makeup. I’m currently obsessed with wearing bright/dark colored lipstick and bare eyes. I also cannot live without black liquid eyeliner.
If you could give any advice to other bloggers what would it be? Ha! Don’t stop blogging for 6 months at a time like I do. Whoops!
