Simply Stylist Conference. I had a chance to interview her after the session.
Lauren Bushnell: I don't know if there is any way to really prep yourself honestly. For me I never really knew how big the Bachelor audience was. Everyone kept telling me “just wait, just wait, your life will change”. It is hard to fully understand that or prepare yourself for that. Thankfully the way I grew up, my family, and friends have prepared me for it without even knowing it. I have a lot of good people in my life that kept me grounded. Like I mentioned earlier it was really good for me because I do like to be a fly on the wall. Often times I don’t put myself out there and try new things that you need to take in order to follow your dreams. For me it was really good and pushed me to not be afraid. I don’t know if you can really prepare yourself. I think it is best to go head first and do it. I almost feel like the more you try to prepare yourself, for me and my personality, the more anxious you would get. Such as Lilliana Vazquez mentioned “I do not rehearse”. Just go out there, be yourself, trust your gut, and you are good.
Royale Diary: What makeup brand would you love to partner with?
Lauren Bushnell: I love BECCA Cosmetics. I just got a package from Hourglass and I am loving every single product that I am using from their’s. Georgio Armani foundation is always a good one.
Royale Diary: I was watching your brow tutorial because I love your brows! What prepped you to do that? Did you get questions on how you do your eyebrows?
Lauren Bushnell: Exactly, the number one message I received was "how do you do your eyebrows?". It is interesting I think a lot of the bloggers have say "listen to your audience" because you are essentially writing for others. If you are a successful blogger you are not only giving people advice but also answering some of those questions and filling those needs that they have. For me the number one question included what I used on my eyebrows and how I do them. That sparked the tutorial and is what started the blog. People were asking me many questions such as where I got my outfits and if I have any tips for fall style. That is what makes me want to do a makeup or hair tutorials. I think it is a lot of fun and so many people ask me for help.
