Lauren's Blog Loving with Eyelining Obsessions

Hello, welcome to another edition of Lauren's Blog Loving. Today I'm delighted to feature the gorgeous...


Claire from Eyelining Obsessions



Hello! Please introduce yourself and your blog

Hello back! My name is Claire and I’m a makeup addict. My blog Eyelining Obsessions is dedicated to this obsession with the majority of posts being reviews of beauty products with the odd eye or nail look thrown in.


When did you start blogging and why?

 I started blogging in February 2010. I can’t for the life of me remember why but I was Googling for reviews of the George at Asda nail polishes and I stumbled across Lipglossiping. I must have read hundreds of her posts and then read everything on her blog roll. By the time I’d finished I had started my own!

 I started because it was so exciting to me that there were so many people all over the world who were as interested in cosmetics as I was. It’s a wonderful thing to be a part of that community.


Totally agree! What is your favourite feature on your blog/what posts are you most proud of?

 I think any of the posts where I have succeeded in making people laugh make me proud. My sense of humour is very dry but I’m always being sarcastic and trying to be funny in real life. I like it when it comes across in my writing.


Describe your style

 If I ever develop any I will let you know! Seriously I am the least stylish woman in Scotland. I love vintage clothes but don’t own any. I went through a phase in high school where I wore brightly coloured stilettos every day for a good couple of years but other than that I am incredibly dull. I am a bit of a pencil skirt fiend and tend to wear them a lot for work.


What’s your favourite item of clothing

 The temptation is to say my wedding dress but I don’t think it counts as I won’t ever get to wear it again! I suppose it would have to be my Irregular Choice cat ankle boots. I so rarely get a chance to wear them but they are fun and quirky and that really appeals to me. I try not to take myself too seriously and these are right up my alley. (Feel free to hate these, many do)



They're so cute! I love Irregular Choice. What is your favourite highstreet shop and who is your favourite designer

 I loathe shopping. There, I said it. I’m female and I cannot stand shopping. Clothes shopping especially bothers me as I never know what I want and nothing ever fits. I’m a size 6 (UK) on top and a 10 on bottom so it’s a pain to find things that accommodate me! I think Dorothy Perkins do the best clothes for my body shape. Places like TopShop seem to think that women have no arses so I never shop there!

 Honestly I couldn’t tell you enough about any current designers to pick a favourite. I have a Julien MacDonald dress that I love.


Apart from blogging, what do you do?

 I work in private health care although I’m doing a night school course to get my Human Resources qualification. I wish I’d just done that instead of getting my degree! I live with my husband, a cat, two bearded dragons, two axolotls, two more fish tanks and four Giant African Land Snails. Mad I know.


Sounds like a zoo! What is your dream?

 Doing well in a career that I love. I’m a hard worker but it’s so much easier when you love what you do! I’m trying to take the steps to make that dream come true.


Tell me a secret?

 Sometimes I have to Google the acronyms that people use on Twitter because I have no idea what people are talking about. FML? You have no idea how long it took me to work that one out. I’m know, I know, 24 going on 74.



Haha! Thank you for taking part in Lauren's blog loving!
