1.Â What is your name, where do you blog, and what are we likely to find there?Â –
My name isÂ DolonÂ a.k.a Pout Pretty :). Â I have always had a pretty unhealthy obsession with makeup and beauty but never really got around to writing about what I love till I finally decided to take the plunge in June 2012. In my blog (poutprettty.blogspot.in), you will find product reviews (Iâ€™m a self confessed â€˜lipstickaholicâ€™ so there will be a lot of stuff about lippies), information about new launches, makeup tutorials, skin and hair care related posts, sale alerts, fashion tidbits, shopping recommendations etc etc ..basically anything and everything that I find pretty! I recently ventured into the arena of Vlogging as well and with much nervousness and excitement started my own YouTube channel (Pout Pretty). In the channel, I’ll concentrate more on demoing makeup looks and sharing tidbits of myself and my life 🙂
2.Â What are your favorite type of posts to write and read?
Â I love to read and write about lipsticks, makeup tutorials and haul posts. I am a big YouTube buff as well and these are the videos I love watching the most.
3.Â What is your skin care routine?
Â I have a pretty basic skin care routine. I don’t use a ton of products and neither do I experiment too much. Currently, I’m loving Auravedic Neem tea tree pulpy face wash, Khadi rose water, Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent Serum, H20 Hydrating Treatment and H20 Night Cream.
4.Â What are your makeup essentials?
Â Again very simple and basic. For the day, it’s usually BB cream/tinted moisturizer, compact, blush, kajal/eye pencil and lipstick. For the night, I just replace the BB cream with my favorite foundation and add eye shadow to intensify the makeup. I am a big fan of bright and bold lip colors so wear one irrespective of whether its day or night, summer or winter.
5)Â Whats your skin type?
Â I have combination skin that gets really dry in winter. That’s why I hate winter so much!
6)Â What’s the one piece of advice you’d give to any blogger?
Â Have fun blogging! Don’t get bogged down with page views, number of followers, how many people are commenting, how many PR samples you received etc. Concentrate on writing good quality and interesting content, think of good promotion strategies and the rest will follow in due course.
7)Â How did you come to know aboutÂ www.wiseshe.comÂ –
When I started reading Indian beauty blogs a few years back, Wise She was one of the first ones I came across while doing a google search. It is now one of the most well known Indian beauty blogs and its like a treasure trove of information related to beauty, makeup and fashion! Kudos and thanks to Ana for giving us Wise She 🙂
