I Heart Beauty Blogging: The Beauty Blogger Award!

beauty blogger award - traciannloves.co.uk
I was recently nominated for the Beauty Blogger Award by the lovely Dominique from Style Domination …make sure you check out her amazing fashion and beauty blog! 🙂

Being nominated for an award by a fellow blogger always puts a smile on my face and makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. The fact that anyone takes time to read my blog still kind-of amazes me. It’s my little space on the internet where I confess to all of my beauty spending and ramble on about products I do and don’t like. I have met some really lovely people through blogging and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of starting a blog to just do it! Anyway, without further ado, here it is…

Dominique’s Questions

Which famous makeup artist inspires you the most?  I am not sure what makes a makeup artist famous…I am a bit rubbish when it comes to celebrities and fame I am afraid, but two artists I enjoy watching on YouTube are Nikki Tutorials and Kandee Johnson. Both were amazing makeup artists before YouTube and the looks they create never fail to blow me away! I love how they share their tips and tricks making them accessible to their viewers.

What is your favourite lip balm? I never stick to one brand, I tend to mix it up a bit and I am always in the market for a new lip balm! I recently finished a pot of the Eizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant which I loved so much. My current fav is the LUSH Lip Service lip balm which is moisturising and hydrating and makes my lips feel really comfortable.

If you could change anything about your blog, what would it be? I would love to improve my photography and make the look of my blog more stylish. I am not the most creative person and I look at some really professional-looking blogs with sleek, stylish, minimalist photography and I am envious of their style and artistry. I would like my photography to be more artistic and classical-looking.

What is your favourite magazine? I don’t often read physical magazines but I do subscribe to a couple of online ones. I read Standard Issue Magazine and also The Pool. Both are a great read and showcase writing from some amazing women.

If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be, past or present? Someone who doesn’t mind that I am all about the food when I eat dinner. Less chat and more eating! 😉

Who is your favourite beauty blogger? OMG how do I even choose this?! I read so many great blogs and interact with so many great beauty bloggers on a regular basis that to choose one would be like picking a favourite child! No Sophie’s Choice for me! Lol!

If you could drop everything and travel anywhere, where would you go? I would hot-foot it over to Canada for a road trip! It’s one place I have always wanted to visit but somehow have never made it there.

What makeup would you buy if you received a $100 giftcard to Sephora? I would grab anything that is not readily available in the UK. Maybe something from Kat von D… I might try an Ink Liner, a Studded Kiss lipstick and the Innersteller Eyeshadow Palette

Which celebrity’s style influences your look? I am no fashonista and don’t think I have a look. I have never looked to anyone else for style and ideas. I do get a little cross that female celebrities are measured on how their hair/face/clothes look. When I watch an amazing actress on screen I really don’t care ‘who’ she wears. I wear what I like and generally know how to dress my body shape (curvy) and height (short). I keep my clothing simple as I am generally all about the bag, shoes and lipstick! 🙂

Lipstick or mascara? Always lipstick, no contest! I love bold bright shades and neutral pinks for a more ‘natural’ look. Someone asked me how I could tell the difference between all of the red lipsticks in the picture below (*gasp*). We are no longer friends! Lol! 😉
