We’re big blog fans here at Scotcampus, having featured numerous guest bloggers on the website over the past few months, and now we’ve got something a little special for all you make-up junkies. Our brand new beauty blogger Aline Siekierski (pictured) will be bringing her video tutorials to Scotcampus.com every week, showing you how to get the latest looks step-by-step, while keeping to that all important student budget.
A full-time student at Napier University in Edinburgh, Aline explains why she started blogging in the first place. “I like to blog because I get to combine my two passions, writing and beauty,” she says. “It gives me the opportunity to be creative and share my thoughts and expertise, while connecting with people all over the world who share a collective interest in beauty, and all things related.”
Despite her love of cosmetics, Brazilian-born Aline’s beauty basics are pretty simple. “My three must have beauty products are a concealer, a voluminous mascara and a cream blush that can double up as a lip stain,” she says.
However, when it comes to beauty icons, she prefers a more striking look. “One of my biggest beauty icons is the Australian model Bambi Northwood-Blyth,” says Aline. “She’s a confident woman who embraces her look and uniqueness. Another of my beauty inspirations is Twiggy, because she’s a classic figure in the beauty and fashion world, and her distinctive look dramatically shaped today’s beauty culture.”
