Hi, I’m Hollie! If you’ve come here, you’re probably wondering who I am.
The answer to that is that I’m lots of things! I’m a wife, a Mom of 5, (a cook, a cleaner!) and a beauty blogger. I’ve been running this site for over 6 years now, and I love it!
From the thrill of new and exciting makeup releases to finding skincare that does the job it’s supposed to do!
Why makeup and beauty?
Beauty and I go back a long way! Ever since I was a little girl, I only wanted to play with makeup. I remember trying to correct my Mom’s makeup at the grand age of 7! I like to think I’ve advanced a little since then;)
When I got older and started using makeup not just for play, I got very overwhelmed by the amount of makeup and skincare products to choose from.
Every product sells itself well, yet we consumers have no idea which ones are the real deal. Testing out every product is expensive and can have a bad effect on the skin.
That is when Beauty with Hollie was born.
Back in 2016, what started off as a hobby has now turned into a business that reaches tens of thousands of readers a month!
Beauty with Hollie is here to help you choose the best products for your needs and skin. With all the research and reviews done for you, all you need to do is have fun and shop!
But reviews are not all that Beauty With Hollie has to offer. From discussing the latest makeup, hair and nail trends to sharing tips for taking care of your skin, there’s something for anyone interested in anything beauty related!
I’ve always been passionate about beauty. I believe that every person can and should feel beautiful. This isn’t about looking the most put-together, it’s about being the real you! Makeup and beauty are a way that helps to find and express who you really are!
A little more about me
Some of you have asked why I have no photos of myself on Beauty with Hollie. Well, I’m kinda the anonymous type, consider me your invisible beauty guru!
I will give you some clues though:
If you’d meet me in the street, you probably wouldn’t look twice. I’m not one of these women who are flawlessly made up every day. Nor is my hair or outfit perfect to a T.
I’m a real woman, with the real, everyday challenges of keeping it all together!
I more often than not have 5 noisy and yummy kids trailing behind me!
I like to keep my personal life private, but from time to time, I do share some personal snippets. For example the births of 2 of my daughters, and my horrific experience with HG during my last pregnancy.
I’m a London girl all the way, I was born here, and now I’m bringing up my kids here.
I have a degree in Graphic Design, but my passion lies in beauty and makeup. I put my graphics skills to good use on Beauty With Hollie!
My main job is being a Mom, this blog is what I do in my spare time (haha, like I have any!).
At this time I only post sponsored content and collaborations that I’ve created myself, in order to ensure Beauty with Hollie retains a consistent voice.
I pride myself on working with brands whose products I love and use! That’s not to say I won’t try out new products, I am always open to fresh and new ideas. But, I’ve got to love the product!
Brands I’ve worked with:
- Revolution Beauty
- Good Molecules
