Beauty Blogger Spotlight Vol 5
It’s that time again where FilipinaMacBarbie Spotlights a Beauty Blogger! I’m so glad that I’ve started this series. I’ve been able to get to know the Beauties Behind the Blogs better and get to read and see all their articles in their corner of cyber space.
This weeks Spotlight goes to Loan from My Own Kind of Beautiful!
I love the blog name because, what may be your kind of beautiful isn’t mine and vis versa. That’s what makes this such a beautiful world! Literally ERRRRTHANG is Beautiful! It may not be your kind of beautiful, but it’s My kind of beautiful.
Now let’s get to know Loan just a lil bit better.
Name & Age:
Blog name & URL:
My Own Kind of Beautiful- http://myownkindofbeautiful.com/
How did you come up with your blog name?
After years of feeling really low in confidence and self esteem, I realized that I don’t look like the average girl, and definitely not like the airbrushed models I saw on TV. So I decided to embrace my own body. If I saw a look I like on someone else, I learned to tweak it a bit to make it wearable on me, to make it my own kind of beautiful 😉
When did you start blogging & Why did you start?
I only just started blogging and doing makeup tutorials on YouTube about a month ago, but it’s becoming so addicting! I started because I knew there were other girls out there in the very same situation that I’m in. We’re not all 5’10, with a size 2 body, flawless skin, and a beautiful mane of hair. I wanted to be able to help girls alter a certain makeup look or outfit, to make it look suitable and wearable on them. I wanted to help everyone find their own kind of beautiful.
What is your favorite part of being a blogger?
I’m not gonna lie, it was pretty terrifying at first. I didn’t think anybody would be interested in what I had to say or the content I was putting out, but my experience so far has been amazing! I love that I’m able to reach out to so many people, from all over the world. It’s such a humbling feeling knowing that girls from, as far away as, Scotland, Italy, and France are reading my blog, and enjoying it! It’s an awesome feeling.
What keeps you inspired to blog?
The feedback I’m getting from all my viewers. They have been so incredibly supportive and positive about the blog and YouTube channel, and that inspires me to put out more content for them.
Do you have regular beauty blogs that you read?
I love Beauty Broadcast because Emily is so sweet and funny, and her reviews on products are amazing! And she’s also beautiful.
What is your HOLY GRAIL beauty product and why?
Lip balm. Anyone who knows me knows that I apply lip balm every half hour. It’s a crazy addiction and a bit annoying.
Is there a beauty product that you’ve tried and will never try again? Why?
I’ve never tried any product that was so bad that I would put it in the “never again” pile. I do a lot of research before I buy anything, so I’ve always been happy with my products.
If you could go back in time to 5 years ago, what beauty tip would you give yourself?
Stop tanning, and use a high SPF sunscreen! I’m definitely paying for all those long hours in the sun without protection 🙁
What piece of advice would you give to new inspiring beauty bloggers?
Connect, connect, connect! With all our social media outlets today, it’s so important to reach out to other people and build your network. It’s a great way to bring in viewers and subscribers.
