The Beautiful Truth

1. How did you decide what to name your blog? 

When I started my blog I was a broke student! I would constantly be window shopping and looking at clothes online that I couldn't afford, I was dreaming of having certain shoes or a certain dress and that is where my blog name, Fashion Dreaming, came from.

2. If you could only have two makeup items in your make-up bag, what would they be? 
This is probably the hardest question I've ever been asked, how can I choose two!! Two makeup products that I've used for years are MAC studio fix fluid foundation and my MAC concealer.

3. Who is your favourite vlogger/blogger?
Without a doubt my favourite vlogger and blogger are Faces By Grace. I recently discovered Grace on YouTube and she seems like such a down to earth girl. Her blog is about fashion, make up and her slimming world journey. I feel like I can relate to her!

4. What product were you most disappointed in this year?
I was most disappointed this year by the Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer. It retails at €5.50 so it is relatively cheap but I was expecting so much more as many beauty bloggers have praised it highly. I have incredibly dark circles under my eyes and the concealer didn't cover them at all. The consistency is so thin and almost transparent, even worse it creases under the eye. It didn't wear well during the day either!

5. What's your favourite product so far this year? 
I have a love affair with NYX lipliners. The consistency is perfect, the colours pigmented and it lasts all day. I have about ten colours at this stage but my three favourites are Mauve, Nude Beige and Fushia.

6. If you could only use one makeup brand for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
It would definitely be MAC if I could afford everything! I swear by their foundation, concealer, eyeshadows, lip-liners and lipsticks.

7. What's your favourite quote to live by? 
'I would rather be completely exhausted from the hard times which breed success, than well rested from achieving nothing'.

8. What do you find most challenging about blogging? 
The past year has been extremely difficult as I've been in my last year of college, working quite a lot and trying to find the time to create interesting and engaging content. I'm lucky in so far as I'm always sent lovely messages from my readers and it definitely inspires me and motivates me to keep blogging.

9. What 5 people would you invite to a dinner, dead or alive?
I think I'd have to invite 5 of the most glamourous women (celebrities and bloggers), I'm sure they would all have amazing stories and fashion advice. I would invite Kim Kardashian, Desi Perkins, Olivia Palermo, Beyonce and Carli Bybel.

10. What's your pet peeve?
It probably sounds ridiculous but I absolutely hate when your paying for something and the cashier gives you your change but instead of placing it in your hand they slide it over to you on the counter, I think its soooooo rude!!

11. What's the last movie you went to see? 
I rarely go the cinema but I watch the descendants last night, George Clooney is in it- Swooooon!
