Just kidding, mostly wanted an excuse to post that. Anyways, as part of the privilege of being Queen Makeupbee I was interviewed by Ti who is one of the co-founders of the site so I wanted to share the interview with you guys!
"Our Second featured QueenMakeupbee of August is Meredith, the owner of Pigments & Palettes blog. Her blog is full of beautiful makeup looks and tutorials, from Makeup to hair, and even step by step Photoshop photo editing tutorials. Learn not only how to apply makeup beautifully from her, you can also learn how she captures that makeup look into a beautifully composed image. " We interviewed her to find out more about her and her blog..."
1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging after I entered my first online makeup contest in March. That contest exposed me to all kinds of incredible talent, both professional and amateur. It was so inspiring it made me want to do what they did, maybe someday inspire people like those bloggers inspired me. I never dreamed I'd have so many followers in such a short amount of time though, it's truly incredible and humbling.
2. How do you find inspiration for your blog posts?
I'm really inspired by literature and film primarily, as the majority of my looks are character based. I love the idea of interpreting and embodying a persona. I guess that's the part of me that never got over dress-up games. I'm also heavily inspired by the work of other bloggers. I see incredible looks and I want to mimic them or put my own spin on them, which is one of the reasons I love MakeupBee so much, it's great for exposing myself to new ideas and talent.
3. What are your must have beauty items and why?
I'd say the things that I reach for the most in my kit are: My Coastal Scents Palettes, mostly the original and shimmer palettes. I use those in just about every look I do. I can't survive without my Quo Ultra flare lashes, I'm obsessed with them and use them all the time. And my Sephora Sculpting Disk, it helped me to discover the art of contouring and honestly, I don't know how I survived without it, I'll never go back.
4. Why should another makeup lover join Makeupbee?
Well, the reason I love MakeupBee is for the inspiration, the incredible talent and the beautiful pictures. But I also really like the sense of community there. I've met some of my favourite bloggers through the site and continue to stay in contact with them. So I'd say, join for the pictures and stay for the friends! :)
Just a short interview. I also reviewed products sent to me as part of my prize which you can check out here. If you haven't joined Makeupbee.com you should definitely check it out. I've met tons of talented artists on that site and made some great friends. Here are some of the friendly faces I've come to know and love from Makeupbee.

That's it for me today. Unfortunately as all my makeup is packed away in boxes right now (ugh, moving) I'm unable to do any looks for a few days but bear with me. I will also be without internet for an undisclosed period of time as I get settled but never fear, I'll be back with a vengeance before you have time to say 'winged liner'. I have some great stuff planned for September that I'm really excited to share with you guys.
And don't forget, there are only
TWO MORE DAYS
until my giveaway closes!
