Here are a few questions I get asked in emails and on tumblr!
How old am I?
I am currently 31 years old, I will be 32 in August.
What kind of skin do I have?
I have combination skin that is on the sensitive side. It get red and irritated easily, and I also get clogged pores/blackheads/excessive sebum easily, which is why I am such a stickler with proper skincare habits and have a very rigid routine.
Where did you get BeautyMeow from?
When I was toying with blog names I was thinking Beauty Now, or something about the beauty and lifestyle I was using at the time. I thought it sounded dumb, then I remembered me and my Husband are really quite silly, and we always joke around and switch up words for meows (we are obsessed with cats) so I thought, BeautyMeow? and it stuck!
But How Many Cats?
We have 5 cats, all rescues. We have 2 black cats,a tortie, a very large 20lb+ main coon and a calico. You will see them in pictures from time to time because they love to investigate every time I unbox anything.
Where do I buy my Korean and Japanese beauty products?
I buy most of it from Memebox, Cosmetic-Love, and from the actual brand websites (from ETUDE house, 3 Concept Eyes and more) You can also find prestige brands and popular brands at Sephora and Ulta
You post a ton of Haul stuff, why?
I post all my hauls because personally I LOVE haul posts and videos. Its really great to see what people spend their actual money on (rather then are sponsored to say). So I like to contribute to the haul posts! Usually I don;t buy a lot. However around April and November when Sephoras has their VIB sales I usually end up stocking up, and some overflow goes to other websites. Around May/June and January it slows down.
Do I have a YouTube Channel?
Not yet. I have the equipment for it, but I don’t have a good area set up, and I am quite shy. I am not the most confident about my appearance and I think I need to get over that before I jump into vlogging. It is something I would love to have set up by the end of the summer.
Do I have a twitter/instagram/snapchat?
I have my personal twitter (@ckrickett) and my Instagram (Ckrickett) both of these I use for work though, not much on the Blogging/beauty side… yet!
How often do I update my skincare routine?
As general rule of thumb I don’t like to switch up to many products at once, and I like give products about a month before ai decide if they are working or not. And I usually only try out 1-2 new products a month. (masks, cleansers and exfoliators I switch up every week or so though). That being said I change it up depending on what my skin wants- which relies on stress, weather, and how much makeup I wear. So Usually I will almost completely switch up my routine every 2-3 months.
Aren’t you to old to be blogging about beauty?
Maybe? Maybe not, its all subjective. I think women or men of any age can blog about beauty, skincare and lifestyle. Since so many people are interested in it, and they range in ages, sex, and preferences. So having a variety of beauty bloggers in a range of ages and genders must be good!
What is my job?
I am an artist. I am a pop surreal and pop culture painter. I am also business owner. My husband and I own our own sandblasting company called Illuminated Lion
Favorite Luxury Skincare/makeup brands?
For skincare I adore SK-II, Tatcha, La Mer and Estee Lauder Products. For Make Up I love Guerlain, Laduree, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Nars, Tom Ford
Subscription Bags/Boxes I get?
Currently I have Beautycon, Beautyfix, Birchbox and Ipsy
