My Guest of the Week ~ Emily of Make-Up By Emily
Determined D. presents "An Interview with Emily (Make-Up by Emily)."
|“It is better to be looked over than to be overlooked.”– Mae West|
1) What motivated you into building a business of making people look beautiful?
3) Do you prefer one brand of make-up over another?
This is an interesting question because generally speaking, you would probably assume that make-up is one of those purchases where you “get what you pay for” – not so, not in my experience anyway. I have spent on all sides of the price spectrum for products and while I am a fairly loyal MAC fan, I have found that there are brands out there that not are not only comparable to the more pricey products, but work better in some cases. My most awesome recently discovered affordable brand is E.L.F. (stands for eyes, lips, face). Their products have been pleasantly surprising for the prices and I use them proudly.
4) What is the one beauty item that you cannot live without and WHY?
I would have to say mascara. Sadly, I was not blessed with long thick lashes that you have to do almost nothing to (I’m looking at you Kim Kardashian!) to make them “pop” - but give them a few coats of the right mascara (right now, I’m loving Maybelline’s “Falsies”) and I’m all good!
5) How can someone on the go do their make-up in five minutes or less?
I am a perfectionist by nature so this is pretty close to impossible for me personally, BUT – if you are in a hurry, a bit of blush, a good coat (or if you’re like me, a few good coats) of mascara and some shiny gloss is really all you need to look like you have put in some effort without also being 15 minutes late to work because you couldn’t get your eyeliner wings right. Yes, that happened to me once.
6) If someone is interested in contacting you for more information about your services, how can they?
When it comes to my business, I love what social media has done for ease of contact. My Facebook fan page ~Make-Up by Emily~ is the best means of contact. Through that, you can grab my telephone number and email address (and if you look closely all sorts of other random information about me).
Hope you have enjoyed this interview. Please read more about her below. Emily is a girl after my own heart ~ I cannot live without mascara either! Please do not forget to go to Emily's fan page for more information!
Thanks for stopping by!
More about Emily!
Bio: My name is Emily, I live in Northern, New Jersey and I have recently opened a business doing make-up for all occasions (or no occasion, just for fun). While I have been interested in make-up and the beauty industry in general, for as long as I can remember, I decided to put those interests on hold and pursue a career in law. No regrets, but after settling into my conservative and busy working-mother lifestyle, in the corporate world, I decided it was time to go ahead and for the first time in a long time, do something that was for just me. An artistic and creative outlet make-up has always been of interest to me and was just what I needed! I am excited (honored, really) to say that I have gotten nothing but positive feedback and multiple referrals. I can rock a smokey eye just as well as I can review a contract or change a diaper and the balance makes me feel fantastic.
