Before there was Instagram and SnapChat, there was WordPress and Blogger, and those were the platforms my friends and I used to begin to build beauty blogs, establish authority in the industry and share our passions with the world. All entrepreneurs, here we share advice on breaking into the industry and our first ever head shots.
Throughout my freelance career, I've had opportunities beyond my wildest dreams thanks to my blog and tight knit relationships in the beauty industry. I remember a little over seven years ago when I told my parents I was quitting my full time beauty PR job to pursue an editorial freelance dream, they couldn't see the bigger picture of my goals, but were supportive and wished me luck. Yes, of course they thought I was nuts to walk away from a cushy PR job where I made a decent salary, had benefits, loved my clients and coworkers, but hey, they had faith that I'd be OK.
