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!

Sunday Shoutout: Q+A With Nelle

Heyyy everyone! Happy Sunday! Today I bring to you the wonderful Q+A I did with Nelle.

I have a LOT of time for the effort she put into these answers and you can certainly see this is the attitude she has towards all of her blog posts too! I mean just look at the crispness of her featured image here!

I changed up a few of the questions from last week and kept some too! So here goes…

Q+A With Nelle 💋

1) What three words would best describe you at a party?

Loud, bubbly and sociable.

2) Why do you love blogging?

Other than the fact that writing generally has been one of my hobbies from a young age, I love the freedom that blogging provides!

I’m able to post what I want, when I want and how I want, and I also love being able to interact with other bloggers and influencers.

3) What was your biggest life lesson?

I think that one of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt is that life is really short and that you should really grab any opportunities that you’re interested in. Don’t be afraid, just go ahead and try something new!

4) Describe your day with three emojis :

😘 🙌 📝

5) Do you prefer summer or winter? Why?

Although winter is beautiful with its crisp, white snow, I definitely prefer summer as it’s warm and I can easily make arrangements with friends!

6) What would be your perfect date?

I honestly love the idea of being wined and dined, but I feel as though that isn’t really my scene. Even if we’re just lounging in the front room eating pizza, as long as it’s warm, there’s movies ready to watch, and I’m comfortable – that’s good enough for me!

7) Where do you see yourself five years from now?

I’d like to picture myself perhaps moving out of the city, being settled in University or already working in criminology or forensic fields.

8) Name one thing you love about yourself:

I love the fact that I’m able to make people laugh/ put a smile on their faces. I’m a pretty easy-going person, aha!

9) Have you set any goals for 2018?

I have! One is to stay healthy by exercising, drinking loads of water and also cutting out certain foods. The other is to provide more content for my blog, and possibly do a collab.

10) Why should people follow your blog?

That’s a hard question to answer without coming across as cocky! I’d say that others should follow my blog because even though my post-ideas may have already been done before, I always try to add a little twist in hope to inspire.

11) Favourite blog subject?

I love creating as well as reading clothing hauls and reviews. I’m forever looking for new pieces to add to my wardrobe!

12) Favourite meal?

I don’t have a specific meal that I enjoy, but I definitely enjoy ordering either a Chinese or Caribbean takeaway.

13) Who do you look up to and why?

Patricia Bright has been one of my biggest inspirations for the longest time. I admire the fact that she’s self-made and has worked extremely hard towards her dreams and to also get to her position as the influencer that she is now. Her Youtube videos are super hilarious – so definitely check her out.

14) Favourite TV series?

I recently finished the entire first season of ‘Young Sheldon’, a new TV series based on the character of Sheldon from ‘ The Big Bang Theory’, and it has given me so many laughs. I cannot wait to see the second season.

15) Dream job?

My dream job would be to become either a criminologist or a forensic – both careers really amaze me.

Speak soon,

Janelle ‘Nellé’ Moore

Loving these answers seriously! You can also find her starting out her instagram journey @realnelleblog

I hope you enjoyed this weeks shout out and please do check out Janelle’s blog because it’s awesome!

Lots of Love

SUNDAY SHOUTOUT: Foundations and Fairytales

This week I my Sunday Shoutout post is dedicated to Foundations and Fairytales by Jess.

She is 22 and a lover of makeup, books and Disney, which is a pretty awesome combination that you don’t see too often!

Jess’s blog stole my heart because the way she writes is so open and honest. She is 100% herself and has no problem telling you that THE LITTLE MERMAID IS HER FAVOURITE DISNEY FILM AND ALWAYS WILL BE!

I really like the blog post about her eyeshadow palette collection because it actually shows a great comparison between high end and high street eyeshadow brands.

Here’s one of her beaut photographs from this post :

So if you’re into these topics, or even if you’re not, head over and have a mooch, because it’s awesome to get to know our fellow bloggers and it’s great that we all have slightly different interests!

Well! I hope you enjoyed this weeks shoutout and a big thank you to Jess for submitting her blog!

If you would like to be involved in the next Shoutout then paste your link on Wednesdays submission post and I will be sure to have a nosey around your blog!

Lots of Love
