Hello and welcome to April’s featured blogger! This month I’m interviewing Nikki. You can check out her lovely blog Makeup Junkie Nikki HERE! Make sure you do as she has some wonderful reviews on products…especially Makeup Geek products 🙂 We are both big fans of Marlena’s new eyeshadows and brushes! Don’t know who Makeup Geek is? Check out the store HERE…then join the forum and become a MUG hehe.
I haven’t met Nikki but I can tell through the little virtual contact I’ve had with her that she is an absolute sweet heart who is crazy about makeup, MUG and helping her fellow bloggers/makeup junkies 🙂
I hope you all love getting to know her through her blog…oh and she has a Facebook page too! AND she is a makeup artist so if you live in her area she is available to do your makeup! 😀
How did you first get involved with blogging?
~ I guess about 3 years ago I found a site called Makeup Geek(I’m sure you all have heard or know about it)! Marlena, who does the tutorials, just captivated me. She kicked started this makeup drive in me! But it was Kandee Johnson who made me believe in myself & encouraged me to start my Blog/Vlog.
I started posting pictures of my looks on my personal FB page and friends suggest that I start a blog & the rest is history! It’s actually really addicting doing what I’m doing! I absolutely love it!!!
What do you find most challenging about blogging about beauty/makeup?
~ what I love most is sharing my love for makeup with others that feel the same. It’s like a little cosmetic family! At least that’s how I feel about my quote on quote “Twitter Family”.
~ what I like least is the ppl that straight up hate on the ppl who take the time to make videos. It always easy to nasty over the computer then fave to face. Most of the bad comments, whether it’s toward myself or someone else, is just unnecessary.
What are the three most important things for people to know about you?
~ I’m married to an amazing husband & have two gorgeous sons!!!
~ I love all the Makeup Junkie’s who take the time to watch my videos, read my blogs & leave me questions or comments! I adore every single one I them!
~ I will always be honest in all my reviews & to all my beautiful “Junkie’s”! You all mean so much to me.
What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
~ I’m completely self taught in makeup or what I like to say… I’m YouTubed taught. I’ve had a burning passion for makeup ever since I was a little girl putting on my mom’s lipstick & high heels 😉
Describe your beauty philosophy in a six word sentence:
~ True Beauty comes from within.
What’s your biggest personal success so far (doesn’t have to be blogging related)?
~ personally: my marriage & children
~ blogging: Marlena (from Makeup Geek), watching and liking my blog as well as being asked personally to be apart of their idea gallery!
What is your favorite beauty blog/website?
~ Makeup Geek
Your favorite product in your makeup kit?
~ Loreal Voluminious mascara in carbon black! That’s my favorite piece of makeup!!!
What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t blogging?

What is one question you want to ask next month’s featured blogger?
~ what is it about Makeup that made you fall in love with it!
Question from last month’s blogger Catanya: I would like to ask what your best beauty tip is!
~ No need to spend tons of $$$ on Facial creams! Just get Vitamin E gel caps and prick a hole in it and apply that gel directly on your skin. I use it on & under my eyes, forehand & neck! Use your usual face cream over top. No need to spend all that extra $$$. I also take vitamin A my mouth which is also great for your skin.
Thank you Nikki for your great answers 🙂
