INTERVIEWED: Life With Maria

Welcome to Interviewed, a series of chats and discussions with creators all over the internet!
Today we’re joined by someone with the most incredible make up skills on the planet, Drag Race superfan and creative genius – Maria from lifewithmaria.
D: Who are you and what do you do on the internet?

M: My name’s Maria, and I’m an Editor by day, blogger the rest of the time! As my Instagram bio says, I’m essentially an eclectic ball of mess. I kind of scurry around producing makeup looks one minute, shooting fashion the next, indulging in my passion for film writing and also my new-found love of travel. Most of the time you’ll find me posting weird beauty looks on Instagram, or musing on my blog- lifewithmaria.

D: How did you get started in blogging and adventurous make up looks?

M: I’ve actually been blogging for over five years now, I started when I left uni and worked in social media and blogging for a few years, while running two blogs of my own. I finally invested in my own domain almost two years ago, and have been writing on Life with Maria ever since!

Can you believe I only really discovered makeup a year and a half ago?? I’d never really worn much, but after binge-watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, I got so inspired. I started experimenting a little bit and I’ve been so passionate about it ever since. I have such a long way to go in terms of development, but I can already see myself improving.

D: What brand of make up to you like or would recommend overall?

M: DEFINITELY KAT VON D! I’m so obsessed with every single product, and it’s a mid price range, so definitely worth the investment. When I first started doing dramatic makeup looks I had no money for products like this, but I really couldn’t achieve any results with cheaper counterparts. It’s definitely worth investing. Other than KVD, I also recommend Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills, CYO Cosmetics (they’re super cheap!), NYX and Marc Jacobs Beauty.

D: Who are you and what do you do online?

I: I’m Ian, a 30 something (let’s not get too bogged down with exact ages) from Belfast and I’m the creator of Rogues+Brogues.

D: How did you get your start as a blogger?

I: In a previous job, I was the digital marketing manager in charge of wrangling all the blogger content. I spotted that at that time there wasn’t a bit male blogger population, especially in Belfast, so thought I could share my thoughts and experiences.
