My Answers.

What made you start your blog? When I started to realise that there was more to make up than just putting the same make up on your face everyday I started totally lusting after beauty products, but I found a lot of foundations I bought were never the right one for me (I'm still looking) and so I started looking for reviews, but I find reviews impersonal, then I came across beauty blogs! After following so many lovely girls blogs constantly I decided I'd also love to share my passion with you all!

Favourite high end brand? Hmm this is difficult, generic answer BUT I think I'm going to go with MAC, they make the only foundation I've ever REALLY liked and they make beautiful lipsticks in all different colours!

Favourite drugstore brand? It's got to be Rimmel, if they're drugstore, they are, aren't they? Kate Moss's lipstick collection is to die for and they're nail varnish range is fabbbb! Also they're great when boots are having their usual cheeky 3 for 2 offer!

The most interesting thing thats happened to you? Interesting, I'm really not an interesting person! There probably is something more interesting but I can't think of it on the spot right now! Erm, I would say getting picked as one of three for my job out of 100's of applicants, it was tough but now I love it (and the wage).

Your style icon? I have a few - Miley Cyrus, Alexa Chung, Shanae Grimes... I pretty much adore the whole of the Made In Chelsea/90210 cast!

Naked vs Naked2? I only own Naked 2 so I'm going to have to go with that one!

Your go to beauty product? I want to say lipstick because I hate my face without it, I don't feel done! But I'm going with Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer! It's amazing, I have very oily skin but can get random dry patches around my eyebrow and on my forehead depending on what products I've been using, like I said it's oil-free so it;s not greasy at all! Perfect! But it does sting my eyes like mad, suppose your not supposed to put it in your eyes are you haha?

Your inspirations? My inspiration for blogging has to be Kayleigh at Couture Girl, before university Kayleigh was local to my area, which is a small area where things are a little bit behind all those big cities! When I found Kayleigh's blog I fell in love with it and I was checking it everyday! It's a funny thing to say but a lot of people around here know everyone's business and things like blogging are not really the 'done' thing, so I knew there would be a few people who had something to say about me if I started blogging! But also Hannah at Cosmetic Crave is also from my area (so many wonderful bloggers from such a small area!) also had the courage to link her blog on twitter and really go for it, she's also been really supportive!

Your best beauty tip? Ok, so although I love beauty, I think I'm a complete novice at it! Everybody has their own routines and styles and I think that's what makes people beautiful! I would love to learn more about creating a perfect base for my make up though! My make up tip is that if I'm going to wear a matte lipstick I put tinted moisturizer on my lips first, pretty wierd I know, but the colour acts as a brilliant base and the moisturizer acts as a barrier to stop them drying out!

You're stuck on a desert Island where you could take 5 things, what would they be? NAIL FILE!!! Conditioner (this perm would not be happy!), Suncream - who wants to look prematurely old?, My Topshop Sartorial Lipstick (sunny happy colour and I NEED LIPSTICK), and my phone so I could share the island on instagram- too obsessed! (Hope this Island is beautiful by the way).


Something that makes you happy? Totally SOPPY! But my boyfriend Andy, he is so amazing and supportive and never fails to make me happy! He is a playful soul so is always up to mischief haha! Also I don't know if I would have had the faith in myself to start blogging if I didn't know he would be there supporting me fully! He also loves eating out so a total catch because that's my favourite thing to do EVER!
