Answer the five questions below.
Award the Laine Blogger Award to 5 of your favourite bloggers.
Question 1: What is your current beauty obsession?
I’m obsessed with eye makeup lately. I love looking at eye shadows and swatching them all on the back of my hand and arms until I look like a colourful zebra. I love the effect eye shadow can have if you know how to apply it properly, and how it can really make your eyes look bigger and more defined. I’m also fascinated by how different mascaras affect the lashes, and love playing around with kohl and gel eyeliners. I keep my eyes pretty natural looking, but it’s really surprising how many variations of 'natural' there are! Playing around with eye makeup feels so arty and creative.
Question 2: What is one beauty item you wished you owned?
I have been dreaming of owning the Naked Palette by Urban Decay for so long, and FINALLY it has appeared on Beauty Bay so I’ve just ordered it. So my dream will be a reality shortly! Then I’ll want to own the Naked 2 Palette! I also really want a MAC blending brush but can’t justify the exorbitant cost of them here in Australia.
Question 3: What is your favourite post to read or write about?
My favourite post to write about is creative/crafty ideas, or more personal ones and answering questions. I love my Survey Sunday ones. My favourite to read would also be more personal ones, or monthly beauty favourites, reviews, or creative ones.
Question 4: What inspired you to become a blogger?
I have always loved writing and haven’t done a lot of it lately. I didn’t realise just how much I missed it until I started this blog. My friend also became a makeup artist, she recommended all these beauty Youtubers for me to watch, and I started full time work where I had to look presentable all around the same time. This resulted in developing a strong interest in makeup and using the internet as a form of expression, and I just got inspired to write my own to contribute my opinions and ideas to the world in some small way. It also provided me with the creative outlet I was desiring and lacking at work.
Question 5: What nail polish are you wearing right now?
OPI’s Nein Nein Nein, OK Fine! It’s from the Germany collection and is a lovely creamy dark grey/green colour. I’m very surprised at how much I like it! And I love the super glossy finish.
So now I nominate the following amazing bloggers (love your work girls!!):
1. Ellie from Ellalogy
2. George from Life at the Coop
3. Perla from Perlaxmakeup
4. Laura from White Winters
5. Rachel from Live.Food.Love
Thanks again for the nominations Maya and Sneha, and can't wait to read the answers of the lovely bloggers I've nominated!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend! It's Grand Final Day here in Melbourne and everyone is all excited!!
