Frequently Asked Questions of Emily: Creator of Why Hello Beauty
How old am I?
I am 29 and my birthday is October 28th.
What inspired me to create Why Hello Beauty?
I have always been an obsessive buyer of makeup and hair products 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?
Why Hello Beauty quickly became something that I could see a future in and now I believe one day this WILL be my full time job. At the moment, I work beauty blogging (including brainstorming post ideas, taking photographs, editing posts, sourcing images etc) into my life around my day job in Administration and my family of humans and fur!
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 Afterlight, VSCO Cam, Looksee and also the in built Instagram editing features – see below.
What iPhone apps do I use?
For photo editing I reach for Afterlight, Camera+ & VSCO Cam and to resize images for instagram I use Instasize and Squaready – phew, theres a few!
