About Sally

Welcome to The Makeup Directory. My name is Sally and I’m a 23 year old living in London.

I used to have a really long ramble here, about how I love 1960s French films and art attack and rambling, but you don’t want to hear that. You want to know what kind of camera I use, I know you, so here’s to a good old FAQ.

So, what camera do I use?
I use a trusty Canon 60D with either my 50mm f1.8 lens, or my 24mm f2.8. I’m a big fan of prime lenses, if you give me a zoom lens I kind of freak out and don’t know what to do. I occasionally use my iPhone 7 too, especially when it comes to the gram. 

What’s my day job?
I spend my days partaking in freelance writing, generally keeping things in the beauty department. It’s still very early days and I occasionally miss the stability of a ~normal~ job, but it’s what I love nonetheless!

When did I start blogging?
I actually started way back in February 2013 whilst I was at university. I bought a product but couldn’t find any reviews online so I decided to write my own. I described the product as a glowing delight. I hope I’ve improved. I didn’t blog too much again and abandoned ship for a year, so really it’s been since August 2014.

Is this blog really all makeup?
Mostly. I tried out a few other things in 2015 such as baking, lifestyle and music, but it didn’t really work out as I just didn’t enjoy writing about those things as much. I just really enjoy writing about beauty so Imma stay that way.

Where am I from?
I live in Bromley with my boyfriend Harry (yes When Harry Met Sally is a real life thing here) and our goldendoodle puppy Elsie. Harry is also the technical guru behind my blog so if anything breaks I just kind of flutter my eyelashes and ask him to fix it.

If you would like to ask me anything else I’m always around. I try to reply to all my blog comments, you can always send me a tweet or of course you can email me at [email protected]
