I've seen this tag on a few blogs and thought I'd give it a go!
*The tag was originally created by sophia from tattooed tea lady*

why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I've been reading blogs for years and one day decided to take the plunge. I've been writing sweet electric for almost a year - its gone so quickly!!

whose blog did you fall in love with first?
Makeup Savvy was one of the first blogs I subscribed to. Not only do I enjoy Fee's posts but I think she is massively creative - her nail tutorials are brilliant and Fee seems like such a lovely person too!

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product you bought and was it worth the hype?
The Revlon lip butters. My first real post was actually a review of these. They were incredibly hyped up when they were released - I had a mad panic moment and paid for next day shipping from boots (which I never usually do as I'm a tightwad who hates paying for p+p) but luckily I do really like them.

What are your favourite five things about blogging and being a beauty blogger?
I love being part of the beauty blogging community - joining in with the bbloggers chat on Sunday's and Wednesday's!I love discovering new brands/products new finding new blogs to read. I also love writing about my favourite and maybe not so good beauty products!

What have you learnt from being a beauty blogger?
I've learnt a lot about beauty products and application techniques. I've discovered new brands that I never would have considered otherwise and completely changed my makeup and skincare regimes as a result.

Have you changed anything since being a beauty blogger?
I'm now using a wider variety of products and finally applying makeup with brushes, rather than just slapping it on and hoping for the best.

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?
Write about what interests you and don't worry about gaining a huge following overnight. Whats the saying, Rome wasn't built in day - it takes time to build a readership. Keep going and enjoy it!

Name your top five brands!
dior, illamasqua, revlon, MAC and sleek

Recommend your top five favourite beauty products!
benefit bad gal mascara, illamasqua blush in naked rose, MAC extra dimension skinfinish in superb, estee lauder double wear light foundation and nip and fab shine fix.

Let me know if you've done this tag - I would love to read it!
