In the Spotlight: Beautylishious

19.11.10

Well girls this is the penultimate installment of my In The Spotlight series and I'd like to thank all of the ladies involved for taking the time to answer the questions put to them.  Through these interviews I've gotten to know some of my favourite bloggers a bit better and I hope you all have too.  I started this series during the fledgling months of A Perfect Lie and it really did give me a sense of acceptance in the blogging community - so thanks again to all the lovelies for taking part and being so, well, lovely!

What struck me when I first read this week's blog is how credible the blogger is, and at such a young age.  Without being patronising, what is it about a fifteen year old girl that attracts over 450 followers?  At that age I was a complete beginner when it came to applying make up and unfortunately fell foul of the white eyeshadow trap on more than one occasion.  Yet this girl stands out in the blogging world because she knows what she's talking about.  Her looks are well-thought out and executed with a real flair.  The fact that she balances her successful blog with school secure her extra blogger points in my books too!

So here we have her......
Hannah of Beautylishious

1.  First question as always, sum yourself up in 5 words.....
Hmm.. 5 words... Makeup-addicted, sensitive, fun, easily-amused and childish! Whoops, thats 7 words hehe :)

2. What's your blog all about?
My blog, Beautylishious, is really just a place for my to express my opinions on make up, my obsession. There's also bits of real life thrown in there, fashion and other randomness, but mostly on my blog you will find FOTD's, make up reviews, outfits, and general rambling :)

3. Who or what inspired you to start blogging?
A few months ago I got into watching beauty YouTubers pretty frequently, and the beauty guru lollipop26 really inspired me as I loved her videos so much and her blog was amazing. I was also interested in a few other beauty blogs, so I thought, why not? And got myself my own brand spanking new blog :)

4. Looking at your post "FOTD ft. My Sister", you have a real talent for make up.  Is this something you'll be pursuing as a career in the future?
I wouldn't say I have a talent, but I really really enjoy using make up and making people look beautiful. I definitely want to pursue a career in make up, either as a beauty journalist, which also combines my love of writing with beauty, or as a make up artist.

5. What's your favourite style of make up to do?
I love make up using bright colours and big smoky eyes. I find it so interesting how just one product can totally change how your face looks, and I love experimenting.

6. Which brand of make up crops up most in your make up bag?
At the moment, I'm a little bit obsesed with ELF products, and seem to spend way, way too many of my pennies on them! I also love Sleek, Barry M, GOSH and of course, MAC :)

7. Do you have any skincare secrets?
I believe in just taking good care of your skin, by taking off your make up each night, letting your skin breathe by not wearing too much foundation, and moisturizing till the cows come home! Of course, the other trick is to eat well and stay healthy, although I'm not the best person to follow that :)

8. What's the one product you couldn't live without?
Although I love my blushes and lippies, I have to say that I could not live without my mascaras. Specifically my Max Factor False Lash Effect. Perfect lashes make for a perfect day ;)

9. Boots or Superdrug?
:o I cant choose!! I shop in both regularly, although maybe Boots have the edge, just for their amazing Advantage Cards! But then Superdrug have GOSH and Sleek! I can't choose!


10. Who is your celebrity fashion icon?
I think Fearne Cotton has amazing style, she always looks stunning. Also people like Sienna Miller, Blake Lively and Taylor Swift are my ultimate style icons :)

11. Which shops do you always head straight for when you go out shopping?
Of course Superdrug and Boots, and I'm always hunting out bargains in Primark and the Pound Shop. I also love River Island, as my sister can get me discounts, and I also like Topshop, Republic and New Look.

12. Do you have any embarrassing beauty/fashion moments that you'd rather forget?
Oh dear! I have too many to remember. But from when I was younger, when I thought it was extremely cool to strut around in my lycra miniskirts and chavvy tops! CRINGEE!!

13. Which blogs do you enjoy reading?
I have so many favourites I can't name them all, but the ones that jump out are of course lollipop26writes, Vivianna Does Makeup, *Nicola-x and FernLaura, I love them all :)

14. What can we look forward to on Beautylishious?
Hmm, I always seem to get ideas for blogs and save them in random posts and forget about them. But I think my upcoming posts will be...
- A post on spot treatments
- Many FOTD's and OOTD's
- A larvleyyy haul post :)
- A posty about my holiday :)

15. Do you have any tips on how to make a successful blog?
My tips are just to keep at it, always be commenting and looking at other blogs for inspiration and get yourself well known on the blogger ciruit by talking to other blogers. After a while, it pays off and people start to read and enjoy your blog :)

So you might be able to guess that this was another interview that I did but then unfortunately it sat in my inbox for a while as I worked my way through the load I sent out.  It was definitely worth the wait though, as Hannah is such a sweet girl with a remarkable talent for creating great looks which are really wearable.  Just a quick scroll through her blog and you'll see that she definitely earns her title of Make Up Addict!  But a quick scroll would be an injustice, so I suggest you click on over there and spend some time working through her feast of posts......and then top it all off my following!

Hands up who's a fan of Hannah?
