Be My Guest: Emma from Cosmetic Charm


Blogger Fact File:
Name - Emma
Age - 29 - but I still get asked for ID yay!
Location - Ayrshire
Blog - Cosmetic Charm
Favourite Colour - Purple and red
Favourite Blog Topic - I like to do product reviews and read them, like most people I like to read about a beauty product before I buy. I also love reading nail art post because, even though I am rubbish at it I think they are really inspiring.

* I named this questionnaire Be My Guest after my favourite Disney movie Beauty and the Beast - what is your favourite Disney movie and why?
I love Beauty and the Beast too :) My favourite Disney movie is Snow White because, it is the first Disney movie I remember watching and I thought Snow White was so pretty. I am a big Disney fan though and I also love Cinderella, The Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid and Sleeping Beauty.

* What is your favourite make-up/beauty item and what is on your dream wish list?
Lipstick is my favourite makeup item, I don't have a favourite brand but I really like Boots 17 as they are really good value for money. Keeping with lipstick theme I would love to own a YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick (or 10!)

* If you could travel back in time, where and when would you go, and why?
This is a tough one, there are loads of different eras I would love to go back to! I would have liked to have been in Swinging Sixties London! It just seems like a really cool time to have been young and the makeup and fashion was amazing too.

* What is your favourite type of clothing and which current trend are you most excited about?
I don't think I am a particularly fashionable person tbh! For daytime I tend to stick to jeans and tshirt, checked shirts and for night it's usually a LBD, black opaques and really high heels. I am liking a lot of the pastel stuff and bold prints that I've been seeing in the mags.

* What is your best style tip for Spring/Summer?
If you want to inject a bit of colour and pattern into your wardrobe, but it isn't something you usually go for, keep the base of your outfit quite simple but accessorise with a bold bag and jewellery. River Island has some really cool bits and pieces in.

* You've got a dinner date with three famous people, who would you chose to dine with (dead or alive) and why?
Stephen Fry - Not exactly an original choice but he is so witty and intelligent, I doubt there wouldn't be any awkward boring moments.
Johnny Depp - He would be the eye candy. He has been my number one celeb crush since I watched Edward Scissorhands as a little girl!
Lady Gaga - I'm not a major fan but I would love to see how she acts when shes doesn't have the cameras on her and if she is just as bonkers behind closed doors, or if it is all just an act. I suspect a bit of both tbh!

* What is your favourite TV show?
Probably the Sopranos, even though the ending was rubbish!

* You're making your debut on the red carpet - who would you wear? Describe your outfit.
I really like Eli Saab, I thought the lilac dress Mila Kunis wore to last years Oscars was beautiful do I would like to wear something similar to that.

* What is your favourite book?
I am going to sound like such a cop-out but there is no way I could pick a favourite book! I love reading too much to do that! Instead I am going to recommend the books I have been reading for the past 4 or 5 months, the Song Of Ice and Fire series or Game of Thrones by George R.R Martin, if you like epic fantasy with about 10 different story threads going on then you will like this.

* If you could make your own nail polish what colour would it be?
There was a gorgeous purple-red sunset the other night, I would love a nail polish like that. It would be a duo-tone with a shimmer finish. I would give it a really lame name like 'Setting Sun' or 'Mysterious Sunset' haha!

* You have 60 seconds to describe your blog...GO!
In a nut shell Cosmetic Charm is basically all about giving my readers my honest thoughts and opinions on the makeup and beauty products I have been using. I like to think that I and the products featured are accessible to all my readers. There overall theme of my blog is makeup and beauty, but I do occassionally chuck in the odd rambling post or recipe.

* Name ONE blog or website that you think people may not have heard of and should
This was very hard!! I have picked The Pink Whisk, it is a baking blog by a contestant from the Great British Bake Off and it is amazing! Full of yummy looking treats and I want to make everything lol!

Thanks for taking part Emma! I love reading The Pink Whisk too! It always makes me so hungry though!
