Since this website is new, I thought I would do a little Q&A sesh for you based on what I’ve been hearing from folks visiting my site.
Q: What’s the purpose of this website?
A: In a nutshell, I love all-things beauty. I love trying new makeup techniques, new products, and sharing my experiences in a way that people can relate to.
My plan for this website is to start smaller with product reviews, and fun glam tips/tricks, and the eventually expand into full-blown tutorials. That being said, I’ve heard from a lot of you that the tutorials are what you’re most interested in, so I’ll be coming up with some super simple ones to share in the very near future.
Q: Why am I not starting out with tutorials right away?
A: Two answers: time and money. In-depth tutorials take a lot of time and skill to create, and I don’t feel like I’m quite at that point in my life yet where I could produce a good one. I am a perfectionist, so just throwing a bunch of grainy selfies with half-assed instructions into a post won’t work for me. I work full time at a web design/development company, so most of my days are spent there.
On the same note – I really want to be able to invest in some better equipment before I start doing tutorials. For example, right now all I have is my cell phone, and not even a stand to put it in! Obvs, that’s on my list to procure, but you can see how not being able to take a good pic with two hands free could get problematic really quickly.
Q: Shouldn’t I wait to start a blog until I have all the equipment I need for tutorials?
A: Hell no. Just because I’m not ready for a step-by-step yet, doesn’t mean I don’t have interesting things to share!
Q: You refer to certain stores, like Ulta Beauty a lot. Are you paid to mention certain businesses?
A: Nope, not right now at least. If I ever get the opportunity for one of my posts to be sponsored, I will be sure to let you know loud and clear at the beginning of my post. I’m a one-stop-shop kind of gal, so I really enjoy places like Ulta who have a little bit of everything. I am honest about where I shop, and because it works for me, maybe it will work for you too.
Q: I have a question/comment for you – how do I get in touch?
A: No prob, I’m happy to hear from you! You can send me a message right on the website and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
Thanks for reading,
