Hey bee's today's post is featuring a fellow blogger Beth Mahoney from La Blog Beaute. Beth has been blogging for over 5 Years now she has a keen interest of all things beauty and lifestyle. I asked Beth a couple of questions so let's see ...
What is your blog name?
La Blog Beauté
What is your name?
What is your Blog Url?
(1) If you could describe yourself in one word what would it be?
I would describe myself as happy.
(2) How Long Have You been blogging and what encouraged you to blog?
I’ve been blogging on and off for over five years, but my current blog I started back in September. I’ve always loved to write and when I was studying journalism at university, we were encouraged to start a blog. As soon as I started my first blog, I fell in love and set myself aspirations to one day be a full-time blogger.
(3) Tell us a little bit about your blog?
My blog focuses mainly on beauty and lifestyle posts, including tips and advice articles, reviews, and sometimes, personal pieces. Occasionally, I feature fashion, travel, food, decor, and business posts too.
(4) If you had €1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
That’s a hard one… Probably clothes, only because I already have SO much makeup.
(5) What is your go to make up product?
My go to makeup product would have to be my Smashbox Blush Soft Lights Duo. I love, love, love this, I use it everyday and would hate to be without it!
(6) Any Tips for bloggers that are just starting out?
My best tips for new bloggers would be, always re-read your work to check for errors, so many bloggers fail to do this. I would also suggest posting content at least three to five times a week. Finally, I would say that being active on social media - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., is so important. To build up a following, you need to get your name and blog out there, and social media is the perfect tool for this.
(7) What is your number one rule when it comes to blogging?
I would have to say post new content regularly. The more new content a site has, the higher it ranks on search engines like Google. So this is really important if you want to get anywhere with your site.
(8)How Do you come up with new material
for your blog? As you know, some of us struggle for time to time, especially when we hit writer’s block.
When an idea comes into my head, I always write it down. I then use my list of ideas for whenever I’m in need of a new post. I also take inspiration from other bloggers and the types of posts they share. I love using idea sheets to - there are lots of these on Twitter.
(9) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
I would have to say, eyeliner as lipstick. The other way around sounds far too messy!
(10) If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?
I’ve always dreamed of spending some time exploring Italy, so that would definitely be first on my list.
(11) Do you prefer to shop online or in store? And if so, where would you buy your make up products.
I tend to chop and change, but mostly in store as I like to be able to see testers before I buy. Right now I am obsessed with Superdrug as I love the range of brands that they offer. When I shop online, Beauty Bay tends to be my store of choice.
(12) Eyeliner in Pencil, Gel, or Liquid?
Pencil, always. I’ve never mastered the art of gel or liquid eyeliner, so I tend to stick to pencil. Plus, I love the smudgy look that only a kohl eyeliner can create. I’m a brown eyeliner girl as black makes my pale skin look washed out.
(13) What are your favourite drugstore products?
To be honest, I like anything and everything. Right now, however, I’m crazy about Makeup Revolution, Sleek and Makeup Academy. Especially, the beautiful palettes that they offer - I am obsessed with them.
(14) What is your favourite foundation and what do you use to apply it?
When it comes to foundation, I tend to chop and change. In the past, I’ve used and loved Benefit Oxygen Wow, Rimmel Lasting Finish, and Lancome Hydrozen BB Cream. Recently, I’ve been using Clinique Chubby Stick foundation and am very happy with it. For applying my foundation, my tool of choice depends on the foundation itself. However, my two favourites are my Beauty Blender and my So Eco Flat Foundation Brush.
(15) What social media sites do you use?
I’m on almost all social media sites, but my favourites are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. You can find me on Twitter as @bethmahoney92, on Instagram as @bethmahoney_92, on Facebook as La Blog Beauté, and on Pinterest as Beth Mahoney.
