I am so excited to be writing this post right now because this blog will be a part of the Beauties on Fire collaboration!
The Beauties on Fire collab is an amazing group of fashion and beauty bloggers who will be doing themed posts that you (yes you!) get to vote on. So if the theme is say, beach, each blogger would come out with a beach themed outfit/makeup look/etc. If you would like to join in on the fun, please see Elizabeth’s original post here to get started and find out more information!
While you’re here, why not vote on our first theme? I can’t wait to see the results!
The coolest part of this collaboration is that it’s a great opportunity to meet other bloggers and discover new blogs you might never have found otherwise. All the posts will be linked to the logo below: just click on the pic and you’ll be taken to all the posts.
A special thank you to Andi for the fancy logo that makes this collab super official 🙂
So some starter Q&A for this post, both for my lovely readers and my fellow beauties on fire:
1.) Tell us a little about your blog and why you decided to start blogging
I am still so so new to this world of blogging, so I don’t have a streamlined response to what Skintuition is quite yet. If you asked me to define it, I’m not sure its been around enough to have discovered its style and gotten its (virtual) sea legs. There’s a lot of skincare stuff, but I would like for it to eventually include a larger variety of beauty, fashion, and lifestyle posts. A lot of experimentation is in its future!
Skintuition came about because I decided to quit my job as a (unofficially trained) pastry chef at a local bakery to pursue TEFL teaching certification while tutoring students on the side. With all the newfound free time and my workaholic nature, I had to find something to keep me from going mad and feeling under productive. After watching an ungodly number of beauty videos on YouTube, I decided to put my degree in creative writing and I-probably-need-to-be-medicated-for-it obsession with Korean beauty and skincare to use. Hence the blog. Advice and ideas are welcome here; I’m just winging it (like my eyeliner)😘
2.) How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for a very very long time: just a little over a month 😜
3.) Do you consider yourself a fashion blogger, beauty blogger, or both?
I’m a beauty blogger through and through. Can anyone tell me if my polka dot shorts match my striped tee? Haha, ok, I kid. But honestly, the dressiest I get is throwing a blazer and some jewelry over a t-shirt and jeans. Occasionally, it looks cool.
4.) List 3 things you love to do besides blogging
Drink coffee+create things+get enough sleep
5.) For Beauty Bloggers: What style of makeup do you enjoy the most: Natural, Trendy, Glamorous? Show us some of your best looks…you can create a small collage for this (this collage can be used to show readers your beauty style). Also, what is one beauty product you can’t live without and why.
I tend to lean towards the more natural style, although, if the mood strikes, I can get pretty bold. I’m not really a selfie person so guess I need to start taking more pictures! In time people, in time 🙂
I’m a total skincare junkie so the one beauty product I can’t live without is probably the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence by CosRX. I have yet to find a skin problem it can’t fix. Go pick yourself up a bottle and tell me if it doesn’t make you fall in love 😍
That’s it on my part for now. Click the pic below to see all the other collaborators posts! And don’t forget to vote if you haven’t already 🙂
