I was nominated for a Liebster award!

The beautiful Lorna from Captivate the eyes nominated me for the liebster award! This is my very first liebster award and I am so happy!
Lorna is a 20 year old beautiful and talented beauty blogger from Australia. She creates really cool makeup looks like cut creases and more. If you would like to check out her blog click here.

Here are the questions: 

1.     Where do you currently live? Are you originally from this country?
I was born and raised in central New Jersey in the US.  
2.     When did you start blogging? What was your first blog post about? Who was the first person to comment on your blog posts, that was not part of your family, or your friends?
I created my blog in March 2014 and my first blog post was a review about the MAC Prolongwear Concealer which is my HG concealer. It wasn't until my second blog post that someone commented on it. I was very excited- its an awesome feeling when someone comments on my blog because its cool that there is someone out there who read my post and relates to it. 
3.     What motivated you to start blogging? Is this motivation still driving you to blog? Or, is there something else motivating you now?
Well, I love makeup, beauty, and nail art so that was one motivation to blog. I think what caused me to create this blog is watching youtube beauty vloggers. A few years ago I watched Jlovesmac1 videos and I loved her videos. I loved how there was a community of people who share the same interests and are able to connect with each other. I created a blog so I could connect and share my hobby with other people. I believe that this motivation is still driving me to blog- I love reading other blogs and they inspire me to create looks and try products
4.     How would you best describe your make up preferences? Do you like your make up dramatic, or more on the natural side?
It depends on the occasion. Lately, I like my makeup on the "natural" side. My go to "natural" look is winged liner, contoured cheeks, highlighted skin, foundation, loads of mascara and a bold lippie. Yes, this is natural to me haha. 
5.     What is the first make up product you ever used? Fast forwarding to the present, do you still use the same brand and the same product? 
I believe the first makeup product that I've used is maybelline's great lash mascara. I still use maybelline products but I definitely don't use that mascara, I prefer mascaras that give my lashes that falsies look. 
6.     Name your top 3 bloggers. Who are they, and what attracts you to read their blogs?
World of Wanderlust- She turned travel into her career and she travels all over the world. I love reading her posts and she makes me want to sell all of my things and spend a year traveling to different countries.
Peace Love Shea- I have been reading her blog for a few years. I love her style and she definitely is one of my style inspirations.
CoutureGirl- I enjoy all of her posts. She tends to post a lot makeup posts and those are my favorite posts to read. I also love how she photographs products- the photos are really great quality.
7.     What is your Favourite beauty/makeup related product? What makes this product your absolute favourite?
 I would have to say my mac prolongwear concealer. I have terrible under eye circles and this is the only product that I have tried that effectively conceals them.
8.     What is your best and worst feature about yourself?
 I think my best feature are my eyes and my worst feature is my nose. I don't like my nose and its something that I have struggled with my entire life but I wont change it. My imperfections are what makes me unique.
9.     If you could give advice to anybody wanting to start up their own beauty/makeup blog, what would you say?
Go for it and have fun! 
10.  Fast forwarding five years from now, do you think you will keep blogging? If so, would you remain blogging about beauty products? 
 I hope so and I will still blog about beauty but I hope to incorporate some travel posts as well.
11.  Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
 Graduated from college with a bachelors and masters degree and working in a job in my desired field. Blogging wise: I will still be blogging and hopefully making youtube videos.

I hope you enjoyed reading my answers!
