My Interview About Blogging, Magazine and Favourite Makeup

Last month lovely Yulia from BeautyInsider asked me several questions and I thought I’d share some of my answers with you. I don’t really tell a lot about myself or the blog and a lot of you ask so here are some answers for you! Hope you will enjoy ūüôā

You can find the original interview here but it is in Russian (I’ve studied the language at school). I absolutely love reading the¬†answers¬†of other bloggers so thank you, Yulia, for such a great material! By the way, you can also read the interview with BritishBeautyBlogger and some other Russian bloggers. But ¬†you can always use an online translator, right?

This is NOT a word to word translation, just the main idea!

How did you get an idea of writing a¬†beauty¬†blog? Anyone helped you in the beginning? I remember how you’ve started, you’ve changed the design several times and even the name of the blog?

To be honest that wasn’t even my idea. I’ve always been interested in beauty and my friends often asked my advice, they actually told me that I should try writing online. My first post was about Coco Chanel.

Yes, I’ve changed the name because I didn’t like the old one. As for the design – I’ve changed it a lot of times and I¬†believe¬†there will be changes in the future.

As for the help ¬†– I’ve got some help when it came to¬†buying¬†a domain and choosing a¬†platform¬†(I’ve got WordPress), I’ve also got some help with the design.

Did you get the idea of what to write about from the very beginning? Did you change it? Do you have any principles you keep? Why did you start this blog when there are already so many beauty bloggers?


I just wanted to tell about the new collections, makeup, products that I’ve tried, I wanted to share ¬†my impression. I have only one¬†principle¬†– not to mix my personal and professional life with the blog.

To tell the truth, I had no idea that there were so many beauty blogs when I’ve started (and now there are so much more), I’ve never¬†read¬†any before.

How did you get the idea of creating your own magazine? Who helped you? Was it hard working on the first issue?

I’ve always wanted to see a magazine dedicated exclusively to makeup: interviews with Creative¬†Directors, famous Make-up Artists, information about new collections,a ¬†lot of beautiful photos of the new collections, trends in the makeup etc. I’ve often shared my thoughts with my friend and once a friend of mine said : “Why don’t you make your own?” Of course I¬†laughed¬†back than. ¬†It ¬†was not real because it is a lot of work and I don’t have an experience at all. But after that we came back to that conversation several times, and after about 6 months I gave up.

It was hard with the first issue of course: I had to

Beauty Inspiration: New Makeup Video by Ellis Faas

Every time I see an e-mail from Ellis Faas I get excited as I know that it will be something beautiful.

This week I’ve got an e-mail about the new video called “A Family Affair” . The video has such name because it was shot in Ellis’ house, the model is her brother Thijs (how beautiful are his eyes?!) and the music was written by her daughter – Flavia.

This is what Ellis herself says about the video:

“As a late teenager, I visited the Tate Gallery in London and was blown away by a Francis Bacon triptych. It made a great impression on me because of the use of colour Рit was unnerving and stunningly beautiful at the same time. Bacon inspired many experiments I did over the years. I now think it has become

Nail Polish Trend: Magnetic Nail Polish

I am actually happy that these days we don’t see that many crackle nail polishes any more. I can’t say that I liked the trend and would probably wear very few colours (I wouldn’t mind a gold crackle).

But do you know what happens when one trend is gone? The other one appears! Looks like the new trend in nail polishes = magnetic nail polishes.

Here is just an example from LCN.
