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!
