1. How did you start your blog and why?
I started my blog in 2009 shortly after graduating from college. I was working full-time at a law firm, studying for the LSAT and thinking I had everything pretty much figured out. I started blogging as a way of having a creative outlet/online journal and realized how passionate I was about writing and creating lifestyle content. Pretty soon I was hooked! I put my law school dreams on hold for a while and pursued a career in fashion while growing my blog. Now my blog is my full-time job and I couldn’t be happier!
2. Your favorite makeup products?
I try to keep my makeup routine pretty simple, but I’m all about using a few products to fake glowing skin! Which is why I love the Jouer highlighter. It’s a subtle highlighter that makes your skin look so healthy. I always fill in my brows and have tried so many different brow pencils. The Lancome Brow Shaping Powdery Pencil has been my go-to for a while now for a natural look. I always keep Buxom Bold & Sexy Lipstick in Sinful Cinnamon in my bag for touchups. This neutral shade goes with any makeup look.
3. The most important beauty/fashion tip you can share with our readers?
Listen to your style intuition! It’s easy to get swept up in trends, and that’s so fun, but I always try to stay true to my own personal style. I’ve found the silhouettes and colors that are flattering for me and I try to stick with them as much as possible!
