How long has Beauty Gala been around? How many years of experience do you have?
Beauty Gala has been around since March 2010. I currently have over 9 years of experience in the makeup and beauty industry.
What camera do you use?
I shoot with a Nikon D7100. I mostly use my 40mm f/2.8 lens as well as my 50mm f/1.4. I also use ring lights around my vanity and a ring light flash.
Who takes your photographs?
I do 99% of my own photography on my website and social media. Occasionally, I’ll ask my husband to take photographs.
Do you wear contact lenses or is that your real eye color?
I do not wear contact lenses and my eye color is 100% real.
Do you personally sell makeup and beauty products on your website?
I do not sell makeup or beauty products on my website and we are not an online shopping site. I do, however, include links in all of my posts to where you can purchase the product(s) mentioned.
Are you sponsored by companies to give reviews? Can I trust the reviews?
I do work with many brands and PR agencies to bring you a variety of content. Beauty Gala will always make note of any samples or products given for free as per the Federal Trade Commission. The intention of a Beauty Gala product review is not just to plug a product, but to truly inform consumers about every aspect of the product they are buying. This includes, but is not limited to, price, value, color, scent, usages, photographs, as well as swatches. The belief here at Beauty Gala is that consumers need reviews to be as informative as possible so they can “test drive” the product via our website, and then form their own opinions and conclusions. Think of Beauty Gala reviews as online “window shopping” for beauty products.
