Behind the Blogger: 5 Fun Facts About Erin Angela That You May Not Know (Kittens and Wine Included!)

Hello, lovelies!

For those of you who are new to my blog, welcome! Today I thought it would be fun to write a post featuring fun facts about me. I wrote a similar post when I began my blog. A post featuring 10 fun facts is an entertaining way to introduce myself to you. Here are 10 fun facts about me:

1. Wine and coffee are my two favourite beverages

I have not found a way to combine them, though. If anyone ever has an idea for wine-flavoured coffee, I’m all ears! I drink at least one coffee per day. I mainly drink Starbucks coffee, but I have discovered flavours from local coffee shops I enjoy. I own an expanding collection of cute coffee mugs. I enjoy a good glass of wine, especially white wine + rose wine. Wine is the main alcohol type I drink.

2. I have one year of studies left before becoming a social worker 

Social work is my dream job. I enjoy helping others, and my own life experiences  inspired me to pursue this career path. I’ve wanted to study social work since the age of 13.

3. They say good things come in small packages 

I stand at 4’10” tall. I like to make up for my lack of height with personality and determination. I’m optimistic, cheery, and persistent. I always hear, “good things come in small packages” and like to think that is true about myself.

4. I own two pets – a bright-orange cat and a German Shepherd Husky who is bigger than me 

My cat, Cody, has been a part of the family for 10 years. The dog, Bear, is a recent addition. Bear is approximately 8 months old and he weighs more than I do. I tried to photograph them together, but that is not an easy thing to accomplish.

5. Lipstick is my top beauty essential 

My purse contains at least two tubes of lipstick at all times. I wear lipstick every day. The shades in my collection range from a peachy-nude to purple. I wear red most often, but rotate the shades I wear based on the season. I reach for paler shades during the summer, and richer colours in the winter.

10 Facts About Me: Beauty Edition


Hello, lovelies! Today’s blog post features facts about my makeup routine, and beauty habits.

 

FACT #1: My main foundation shades are Light/Fair. 

My skin tone is pale. When buying new foundation, I always have my skin colour-matched to the correct shade. I buy the lightest shade available when selecting foundation. My Clinique foundation is the second-lightest shade available.

FACT #2: I’ll try any lipstick colour, and rotate my favourite shades based on the season.

I own varying shades of reds, pinks, nudes, and oranges. With Fall approaching, I gravitate towards darker shades. The main shades I wear during the fall/winter months are deep reds, mauve shades, and browns. In the warmer months I favour brighter shades.

FACT #3: I’m 21, and am only discovering what combination of products work best for my skin.

It may take time to discover which products and steps work best for your skin. I recently discovered the perfect combination for my skin. This happened after a lot of trial and error.

FACT #4: I re-test my Colour IQ at Sephora at least once a year. 

I like to change the coverage of my foundation based on the seasons. I test my Colour IQ yearly, or sometimes once during the winter and once during the summer. This helps me to adjust my foundation shades accordingly.

FACT #5: I moisturize twice a day. 

The anti-blemish pads I use tend to be drying on the skin. I always moisturize before applying any makeup. I recently began moisturizing at night to avoid any dryness after I remove makeup at the end of the day.

FACT #6: I have a list of Top 3 brands that I continually use. 

I bought another Kat Von D (review to come soon!) product this past weekend. I continue to buy KVD products due to the long-wearing formulas. The Tattoo Liner, and Everlasting liquid lipstick, for example don’t flake or feather.

Fact #7: I drink as much water as possible throughout the day.

Yes, I’ll admit that it is sometimes difficult to remember to drink enough water. I drink as much of it as I can throughout the day to keep my skin refreshed and hydrated.

FACT #8: My favourite makeup combination is a red lip with light eyeshadow. 

I always come back to red lipstick. Red lipstick is my favourite bold colour to wear. I rotate the shades of red I own, but this colour is my go-to for adding a pop of colour to my makeup. Red lipstick acts as a versatile base for cream-coloured, gold, or silver/grey eyeshadow.

FACT #9: I co-ordinate my eyeshadow based on the lipstick colour I wear each day. 

I apply lipstick first, then structure the rest of my makeup around that colour. If my lipstick shade is light, I darken my eye makeup. When I wear light eye makeup, I pair it with darker lipstick colours.

FACT #10: I rotate my foundation shades based on the seasons. 

I wear lighter-coverage foundation during humid summer months. During the winter, I opt for a foundation with that has a heavier coverage to conceal blemishes, and to smooth duller, wintery skin.
