Frequently Asked Questions of Emily: Creator of Why Hello Beauty
How old am I?
I am 29 and turning 30 in October.
What inspired me to create Why Hello Beauty?
I have always been an obsessive buyer of skincare and makeup, especially if it was shiny and pretty, and creating this blog was a way to indulge in this passion ‘because it was for the blog!’.
How long have I been blogging? Is it a full time job?
While I do still work full time outside Why Hello Beauty, it’s almost a part time job in between writing and re-writing, shooting photos, editing and uploading as well as just sifting through various sources of inspiration.
Can you give me any advice on starting my own blog?
Seriously, just do it! What is the worst that could happen – someone might actually read your thoughts and view your images and find some inspiration in it? I remember feeling nervous and overwhelmed but it’s fun to create your own thing and share it with like-minded people 🙂
What camera and photo editing tools do I use?
I simply use my iPhone 8 and edit my photos using various apps, such as Snapseed, VSCO Cam and also the in built Instagram editing features – perfect for brightening up that almost perfect image.
