I am sure this Beauty Blogger doesn't need any introduction...
Amelia at Liana Beauty http://liana-beauty.blogspot.co.uk/
Amelia's high powered blog with amazing picture quality, written reviews and pretty products galore, Amelia is one of a kind in the mix of Beauty Bloggers on the web. Amelia took some time out of her very very very busy schedule to talk to Alifeinbeautyam.
- So when did you create your blog and why did you decide to create a blog?
LB:I started my blog almost a year ago now! Friends would always come and ask me advice on my smokey eye makeup, how I achieved volume in my naturally flat hair and what mascara made my lashes appear so long. This inspired me to have a place with odes to my favourite products that everyone could read.
- What goes into your Blog?
LB:My blog is primarily makeup focused, but I do throw a little bit of fashion and photography into the mix. I feature everything from how-ta it is to reviews to a new product release!
- What do you like to write about on your blog and who is it aimed at?
LB: I love writing odes to my favourite products – it just makes me love them that bit more! It’s aimed girls who are interested in anything beauty related!
- What do you love about blogging?
LB: A definite highlight of blogging is when I receive an email, tweet or message from a reader telling me that they love a product I recommended or in general saying they enjoy my blog. It puts the biggest smile on my face!
- How has Blogging affected your life? This year you won a Cosmopolitan award, was part of LFW and was featured as a L’oreal Paris model on shoot for which you shared your stories of this to your readers on your blog. Do you feel blogging helped you with these experiences?
LB: It has definitely taught me how to time manage! At the end of the day it’s your blog and your time so you have to do what’s right for you. Blogging definitely opens up doors to new opportunities that wouldn’t occur if I didn’t have a blog so for that I’m very grateful.
- What has been the biggest achievement with your blog?
LB: Meeting people I admire like Frederic Fekkai and Trish McEvoy who have created life changing products. It was particularly interesting hearing from Trish about how her award winning brush range started. She decided there were no brushes available that were perfect for her so cut up her existing brushes to the exact shape, length and size she desired.
