Beauty Q+A With one of my followers! – The Glow Medic

Good Morning beautiful people! I hope you’re having a lovely day so far, thank you for clicking this post!

I love doing shoutouts on my page but I like to switch it up and keep it interesting so today I will be blogging a Beauty Q+A With the beautiful and talented blogger The Glow Medic

Her Makeup reviews are bomb at hell and her photographs are beautiful too as you can see below:

So I thought she would be the perfect person to select for this post! Let’s get to it!…

1) What is your favourite beauty brand and why?

My favourite beauty brand would be ColourPop Cosmetics- their product launches are the ones that really grab my attention and excite me, plus all their products are really great quality at an extremely affordable price.

2) What piece of makeup couldn’t you live without? 

I couldn’t live without an eyebrow pencil. I can leave the house without foundation/concealer no problem, but you know I’m having a rough day if I haven’t even got my brows on!

3) Smokey eye or pop of colour?

I don’t wear eyeshadow on a regular basis so I always like to take the time to do a bright or unusual colour combo when I can- life’s too short for boring eyeshadow.

4) Your go-to lipstick shade and why?

This is very difficult for me because a mother loves all of her children equally, but my favourite lipstick would be the Huda Beauty liquid lipstick in the shade ‘Bombshell’- it goes with everything.

5) What made you start a beauty blog?

I developed a love of makeup when I first started studying medicine. Makeup was a way to keep a creative passion on the side, a sort of escape, from the challenges and hard work of a medical degree. I started my blog last year after the end of my 3rd year at uni, a time when I transferred from a Malaysian uni to Edinburgh. I thought it would be good to start my blog at the beginning of this new chapter in my life.

6) Who is your beauty inspiration?

Pat McGrath. She is not only an inspirational WOC but she’s probably the most influential makeup artist of the past decade, with makeup looks that are more like works of modern art!

7) Blush or Bronzer?

Bronzer for sure! I may live in Edinburgh, but I like to pretend I live on a beach in Bali.

8) How long does i take you to do a full glam look?

30-45 mins. I was (fashionably) late to a uni medics’ ball recently because of how long I can take.

9) Top makeup tip?

Be smart when buying your makeup. Don’t just assume that the most expensive/well-known brands are the best, or buy things just because they’re hyped-up, read/watch reviews from people of a similar skin type/tone to you, test it out and form your own opinions.

10) Go-to eyeshadow palette?

The Becca Cosmetics Ombre Rouge eyeshadow palette, as it has all the neutral mattes you’d ever need. This, plus a ColourPop Cosmetics Super Shock eyeshadow = the easiest eyeshadow look ever.

11) How would you describe your makeup style?

GLAM GLAM GLAM. I did the makeup for a uni play recently and I was banned from using glitter on the cast members as it was ‘too glam’. The horror!

Yaaaaas! Absolutely loved all of these answers! I totally agree with not being drawn into the hype of extremely expensive brands because you can find some amazing alternatives in drug stores!

Thank you for doing my beauty Q+A Iman! I really enjoyed writing the questions and reading your answers!

300 FOLLOWERS! – Thank you from a new blogger 02!

When I started putting WERK into blogging in January, I had no idea I would be celebrating 300 followers so soon!

I guess I just want to say thank you to every one of the people that follow me! Especially the ones who take the time out to interact with me and get to know me more via my blog and Instagram page!

Blogging has changed my life in a few small but significant ways…

  • I make more effort with my appearance.
  • I have something to aspire towards.
  • I have learnt so much! (And not just about makeup!)
  • I have become more confident.

Significant because I am happier because of it!

300 Followers May seem small to some, but I was sat looking at 0 not so long ago so it feels great!

This has been the start of my journey into being more me and caring a lot less about what other people might think!

So I am going to share a sick quote with you (that my Husband shared with me) that has really helped me along in this process.

So next time you tell someone you want to make a living from blogging and they turn their nose up. Give them the middle finger and mic drop this quote on their lap.

Or just think it in your head, y’know, whatever’s best at the time!

And on that note…

I would love to hear from you guys!

If you could take a few moments it would be awesome if you could paste these questions in the comments and answer them and I will be sure to get back to you, and visit your blog of course!

  1. How has blogging changed you?
  2. What has kept you motivated on your journey?
  3. Has it been what you expected?
  4. Is it something you wish to continue?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Lots of Love

SUNDAY SHOUTOUT: Post your blog link 💋!

It is that time of the week again where I ask my wonderful followers to link their blog in the comments below to be in with a chance of getting a whole blog post dedicated to them on Sunday!

I’m having so much fun looking through all of your blogs and I hope you are also taking the time out to view the other submissions as it’s likely you’ll have something in common!

This will be my third shoutout and I thought it would be a good time to let ya’ll know some ways you can increase your chances of getting one!

  • FOLLOW MY BLOG – I mention it each time folks! These shoutouts are for my followers only, so if you want to take part do the right thing and play by the rules!
  • POST REGULARLY – If you post your link and you’re not an active blogger it is likely I won’t shout you out! This is because I don’t believe that you should expect to gain followers if you are not bringing blog posts to the table. If I visit your page and there is no content I don’t have much to go by! I love seeing bloggers putting passion into their blog! Even if it’s one post every two weeks, if I can see passion and effort it leaves me with a good impression!
  • WRITE AN ABOUT ME PAGE – I absolutely LOVE reading your ‘about me’ pages it’s a good way for me to find out what you’re passionate about, and what kinds of messages you’re trying to get across to your readers!

So! If you would like to be a part of Shoutout Sunday, post your link down below and I will visit each and every one of you!

Thank you! ♥️

Lots of Love
