Reading beauty blogs is one of our all-time favorite pastimes! With each click of the mouse and swipe of the mascara wand, we become more and more smitten with these online beauty gurus which is why we're giving you an all-access pass to the top beauty mavens and their must-have products! This week, we're chatting with Brittany Thomas of Clumps of Mascara.
ESSENCE.com: What inspired you to start a beauty blog?
Brittany: When people ask me why I chose to start a beauty blog, I tell them that beauty blogging chose me. I started blogging at Clumps of Mascara 5 years ago and had no idea that it would take off the way it has.
ESSENCE.com: What do you love most about blogging?
Brittany: Blogging gives me the opportunity to combine all of my loves; writing, technology, beauty (obviously, lol) and communicating with people all over the world.
ESSENCE.com: What has been one of your most memorable moments as a beauty blogger?
Brittany: In addition to being a part of several brand ambassador programs (Wet ‘n Wild, Qtips, and JOHNSON’S to name a few), Clumps of Mascara was recently placed on a Maybelline display located in Target stores nationwide! It’s a good time to be a beauty blogger for many reasons but mainly because brands are considering us to reputable sources.
