Talking Pretty received a special invite to an intimate affair of beauty and blogging hosted by celebrity makeup artist Jennifer Holmes and her partner and husband Terry Holmes at the J. Mont Makeup and Waxing Studio. Beauty and lifestyle bloggers and guests enjoyed an evening of networking and sharing successful tips for blogging. Rémy Martin V was a sponsor of the social, offering guests a range of delicious cocktails from the Rémy V Lemon Drop, V Cran, Cosmo, Georgia Peche, or simply Rémy V on the rocks.
The event featured Holmes’ makeup line, J. Mont Cosmetics, which includes an array of lip glosses, foundations, blush, and bronzers. The polyethnic cosmetic line is friendly to women of every ethnicity and even better it’s “camera happy” as Holmes would say. So no more worries of the ghastly “ghost makeup face” in your photos, J. Mont Cosmetics is said to leave wearers with a seamless finish.
One of the many highlights of the evening came from Lifestyle blogger Bren Hererra, who has an awesome food blog titled Bren’s Flanboyant Eats. She shared tips for beginner bloggers on maintaining a successful blog. Here are the top three she deemed most important:
1. Pick a very good name for your domain that will last forever. Think hard and carefully about a name you plan on sticking with.
2. Speak about what you’re most passionate about. People can see through the fake talk, and it comes out in your writing. Seek out companies and brands that you really believe in.
3. Consistency is key. You can’t write once every two weeks and expect people to keep up with following you. Create an editorial calendar for your blog so that you always remain on schedule with your posts.
