With the digital age, came the birth of bloggers – the new digital age media army, with fashion and beauty warriors alike helping to set and develop trends around the globe. Every Monday, Wear Eponymous sits down to interview an up and coming blogger that has shown skill, quality and excellent blogging values.
Today we speak to Holly from Glitter Pots & Lipgloss, who has a healthy passion for all things beauty!
W.E: Hey ! Tell us who you are!
Holly: I’m Holly, I’m 19 and I’m from Oxfordshire, UK. I currently work full time for a a few fashion brands, in their customer services and social media department. I have been obsessed with make up since I can remember and even more so in love with a good winged eyeliner, red lip and statement necklace. I’ve been blogging for nearly four years, and I am more passionate than ever! I love writing and I love beauty, so running a beauty blog really was a no brainer for me.
W.E: What made you venture into blogging?
Holly: I’ve always loved watching YouTubers and never really had the confidence to begin being a YouTuber, so decided that maybe blogging was a better way to dip my toes in the water, if you will! I have always been fond of writing and I’ve always loved trying out beauty products, so the two really go hand in hand. I feel as though now, maybe I do just need to move on to doing a YouTube channel!
W.E: What is your go-to hair-do?
Holly: Now, for anyone who knows me, they will know I’m the laziest person when it comes to my hair, the less I can do to it, the better! However I do love a good fishtail braid, or a loose donut bun, with a floral head piece.Anything a little messy with some flowers in is pretty much me in a nutshell!
W.E: What has been the most rewarding factor about blogging for you?
Holly: Seeing how supportive the beauty blogging, or blogging community in general, people follow each other, tweet each others links and genuinely want others to be successful, it’s not like ‘the real world’ if you will where you sometimes worry about people’s agenda’s, it’s a really friendly and fun community to be part of. I also like knowing that I can help someone out and make sure that they’re not wasting their money on products, plus, it’s a great way to network with companies and people!
W.E: How do you define beauty?
Holly: I think, when you can look into the mirror and be happy with how you’ve done your lipstick, or how you have put together and outfit or your hair, your beautiful. I don’t think it’s right that we wait for others to tell us we’re beautiful. Before anyone can learn to appreciate your beauty, I think you must notice it and love it yourself. I always feel great with a bold lipstick on and messy hair!
W.E: Your all time favourite wardrobe ensemble?
Holly: Has to be a pair of leggings, an oversized shirt, a statement necklace and a pair of heeled black boots. Nothing makes me feel more glam!
W.E: Name a wardrobe item you'd be lost without.
Holly: Leggings, for sure, the possibilities are endless.
W.E: Finally, what is your favourite Wear Eponymous piece this season?
Holly: I’m absolutely loving my tribal statement necklace I have, however I am also loving their floral cami and grey long sleeved crop top, perfect with a gold necklace and a pencil skirt!
