Hello everyone! Firstly I would like to welcome my new members, thank you for joining!
Here is another interview with one of my favourite bloggers, Tanya from Secrets behind the Mask who I recently met at a party where I was working as a make up artist and after giving Tanya a makeover discovered she was a fellow blogger and have been following her blog ever since. Here are her answers to my blogger questions, enjoy!

When did you start blogging and what inspired you to start?
I started blogging in January of this year along with a couple of friends. I had been reading blogs for a while and wanted a place to voice my rambles and doing it with them gave me the push to actually start.
What is your favourite subject to blog on?
I love writing personal posts because they flow so easily because it's a subject you're never going to forget. Whether people like to read them or not is another matter :) I also love hauls, showing everyone what I've been buying, finding out what they think and whether they've bought it or plan to.
Which beauty item should every girl own?
An eyeshadow palette. It gives you such a range of looks to create, you can go from a day to night look instantly, and less to carry if you are planning a look that requires a number of shades like smokey eyes.
Which make up look are you wearing this season?
As I've just learnt how to create the smokey eye look, I love wearing that right now, and experimenting with different shades together. I'm a bit of a make up novice!
Can you recommend five of your favourite blogs?
I love reading onewaytickettogorgeous, but five of my other favourite blogs are;
Tinks Tales http://tinkstales-tinkerbelldani.blogspot.com
The Budget Beauty Book http://budgetingbeautiful.blogspot.com/
It's Em http://www.its-em.com/
Superficial Girls http://www.superficialgirls.com/
Island Girl Insights http://islandgirlinsights.blogspot.com/
I really want a nice make up brush set as I only have a few random brushes. I've asked Mum for a set for Christmas, fingers crossed :)
What are your top 3 make up brands and why?
MUA, VIVO and MeMeMe. I love MUA and VIVO because they have such a great range of products for an affordable price. I could never justify spending money on companies like MAC just for a single lipstick or eyeshadow. MeMeMe have an amazing range, but I only buy their products rarely as they are a bit more expensive but still cheaper than MAC.
What is your greatest beauty product discovery this year?
MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Facebase Moisturising Cream. I was given this at the Autum/Winter MeMeMe Launch and I'm in love with it. It smells amazing and is a fantastic product. I reviewed the product on my blog http://www.secretsfrombehindthemask.com/2011/10/seventh-heaven.html
Spending time with my girls. Face Masks. Experimenting with make up. Chick Flicks. Pizza. Gossip :)
If you had one piece of advice for potential bloggers what would it be?
Don't compare your blog to others. It's not a popularity contest, and your readers wouldn't follow your blog if they didn't love it! Enjoy it and make sure you do it for the right reasons, because if you don't your readers will notice.
