Blogger Beauty-Life is Royalty

Emilie is the publisher of the of this amazing blog, Life is Royalty, where she puts together great posts with tons of inspiration.  I was very excited that she agreed to do one of my Blogger Beauty posts and also share some of her style icons with us.  Enjoy!

One day while reading one her favorite magazines, Emilie came across an article that featured some of the top bloggers we know.  She immediately jumped online to check out what all the hype was about.  There she was introduced to blogs and was hooked from then on.  She began leaving comments then clicking on the links of other comments and saw there was a whole other world out there, so one afternoon it occurred to her that she could do this too and share everything that she found so inspiring in hopes that it would maybe inspire another person.

BtL:  What does beauty mean to you?

Emilie:  Beauty for me is all about feeling good in your skin, and I think it doesn’t matter how much make-up you’re wearing, how perfect your highlights are or what a fabulous manicure you have. But I also think all these things help to feel better about yourself and more confident :) .  I can feel beautiful after having spent an hour on my make-up, but also after having sailed (without make-up of course :p) the whole day.  My point is you don’t need make-up or an expensive haircut to look beautiful, it’s so stupid to say but beauty comes from the inside :)

BtL:  What’s your typical skincare routine?

Emilie:  I’m a big fan of the 3-step plan of Clinique, I know you should use it 2 times a day but I do it just every evening and it works for my skin.  I have very dry and sensitive skin so I rather buy a more expensive crème to take good care of it and to treat myself.  I have to admit I’m a total girlie-girl on that point, so yes I have a lot of crèmes and lotions :)

BtL:  Do you have a go-to makeup look?

Emilie:  My everyday makeup look is: some bronzing powder, beige eyeshadow, little bit of pink blush and mascara.  For everyday I’m a big fan of the natural look, but for a party at night I love to go crazy on makeup.  Well, I mean not too crazy, but for a party I like to do smokey eyes or some dramatic eyeshadow.  My only problem is I’m a big clums with eyeliner, I just can’t put eyeliner on without looking like a panda haha :D

BtL:  What can’t you leave the house without on?

Emilie:  I’d have to say lipgloss, because that’s the only beauty-product that I always have with me.  My lips get dry very easily so it’s really necessary to have lipgloss in my purse :) And when I leave home for a whole day I also like to bring some perfume with me, because I’m absolutely addicted to perfume, and I like to smell like it the whole day.  But I’m absolutely not the kind of girl that takes mascara and eyeshadow and foundation with me in my purse.

BtL:  Do you have a favorite product(s)?

Emilie:  I have lots of favorite products… :D For instance my Elizabeth 8 hour crème, which is fabulous for my dry skin, I’m addicted to Dior eyeshadow, I also love the Lancôme Juicy Lipgloss, I’m a big fan of Chanel Nailpolish (right now my favourite is Khaki Vert), Biotherm Aquasource daycrème, Chanel Coco Rouge n°5 lipstick, YSL Touche Eclat, and then I change every month or so of favourite perfume and body lotion; for the moment my favourite perfume is Cinéma by YSL and bodylotion is Pure by DKNY.  And I could go for another 20 products but that would be boring :)

BtL:  What’s your favorite way to treat yourself?

Emilie:  I love getting a manicure or pedicure, especially in winter.  But also I love putting on some good-smelling (obviously :p) body lotion after taking a shower, and that’s a treat every day :)

BtL:  What do you love most about being a blogger?

Emilie:  Oh so many things, I love putting together big inspirational posts, receiving comments, reading and writing comments on other blogs,…. It’s just a whole world and it’s a shame not all people know about it. I hope that with my blog I inspire people and give them a good time reading it. And it’s just fun to have blogging as a hobby I think!
