The Beauty Blogger Tag!

Hello Lovelies. Welcome back to Beautiful You!

I was recently tagged by Lucy (I will link her blog post here for you guys) to do this tag and I thought why not. It is a nice way for my followers to get to know me a bit better and to get an insight into my little corner of the blogging world! I hope you enjoy this post and you should definitely go over and check out the people that I am going to be tagging! 

1. When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging six months ago roughly and I had wanted to start a blog for such a long time that if feels like I've been doing it much longer! I started my blog because I wanted somewhere for me to voice my opinions and to help people find the right products for them. This may sound odd to some of you but I always find myself reading reviews after reviews of things that I am potentially looking to buy and I find it fascinating how one persons opinion can change your mind completely. I wanted to be that person to help someone and to make their life a little easier, I don't know how well I'm doing but I love my blog and I'm not going to stop for anyone!

2. Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
I know its is predictable but I'd have to say either Zoella or UglyFaceofBeauty. I have been reading their blogs for so long and I love them. Not only do I like them because of the content they put on there but their website layout is also amazing, its easy to navigate around and find things and they are both just really simple! Plus they are both massive inspirations in my life and their YouTube channels are fantastic too!

3.What was the first blogosphere hyped about product that you brought? And was it worth the hype? 
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder was the first hyped about product that I bought and for a while I loved it and it was so worth buying but recently I don't know if they have changed the formula or something but it just isn't the same, hence why I did a review on two other powders which I shall link here for you guys to read! 

4. What are your five favourite things about blogging and being a beauty blogger?
1. Being part of the beauty bloggers community! I have made so many friends from blogging and especially recently since I have done my Guest Week on my blog and I have let other people post on here, it is amazing how many lovely people there are out there doing exactly the same thing as me! I would love to meet them all one day because they are all amazing!
2. I love being able to try loads and loads of new things and to be helpful to others in the process. 
3. I have always loved photography and taking pictures but I never really had a purpose to do it but now I have my blog I love being creative with the pictures I take. I like to vary the photos so they don't always have the same background and so on just to keep it different every time!
4. How friendly people are and how willing they are to help you! Over this past few weeks when I did my guest post and then my giveaway it is amazing how much people can support you and be there for you because it isn't always easy so having people that know what your going through helps a lot!
5. Lastly, I love the confidence it has given me! I would have never put myself out there as much as I do now if it wasn't for my blog. I wear different clothes now than I would have a few months back because as cheesy as it sounds it has given me the confidence to do that!

5. What have you learned from being a beauty blogger?
I have learnt how to do winged eye liner, I have read so many post on how to do that I have to have learnt by now! I did struggle at first but just like everything else in live it takes practice so stick at it and you will eventually be able to do it! I still sometimes have to take it off and start again but thats always going to happen!

6. Have you changed anything since becoming a beauty blogger?
I have become more and more confident in myself and I have learnt to accept myself for what I am. People keep telling me that I have 'found my own sense of style' apparently and I have my own opinions when it comes to clothes now. I would agree with this because I have bought clothes recently that I wouldn't have bought a few months ago, 1. being that I feel more confident in my self and 2. because why the hell not!?

7. What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?
Persevere. Perseverance is the best thing that you can have as a new blogger. You need to know that you won't necessarily gain followers straight away and yeah sometimes you won't many if any views on your blog or a certain post. But then again that's okay because you blog for YOU no one else. I love having my blog as a little platform for me to be myself and to maybe help others but I do love and thank my followers a lot for following me! 

8. What are your top five make-up brands?
1. MAC
2. Benefit
3. Urban Decay
4. Revlon
5. Rimmel

9. Recommend your top five beauty products?
1. MAC Blush in the shade Peaches
2. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
3. Revlon Colour Stay Foundation
4. Benefit Porefessional Primer
5. Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart
