While chatting in my favorite Make-up Forum, I recently met Avon representative Meghan M. Beautiful and young Meghan is also a beauty blogger, a bartender and college student! Meghan joined Avon because she likes to share affordable beauty products with others. Meghan says people think immediately "expensive" when they hear Avon but it is just the opposite! Meghan wants others to understand that they can buy quality products for a much more inexpensive price, and she provides it right to the tip of their fingers!

Well, after some fun small talk in that Forum where we met, we found out quickly that we live only a couple minutes apart. It sure is a small world! So, I had this idea of doing a little interview with her on my blog. And now lean back and enjoy reading this interview:
BEAUTY4FREE2U: Why did you start blogging?
MEGHAN: I wanted to share my knowledge about beauty in a way that was different from most beauty bloggers you see, these days. It's so hard to relate to some of them because they've either gone through beauty school or buy all of the most expensive products. Well, that's something that I do differently. I'm entirely self-taught and like a lot of people these days, I can't afford all of the expensive things in life. I share my tips and secrets with other regular girls who barely get by with their paychecks and let them know that you don't have to pay the most to achieve the best results.
BEAUTY4FREE2U: What is your favorite high-end cosmetic product?
MEGHAN: To be completely honest, I don't have any high-end products, unless one considers Avon to be high end. While they have great quality products, they're affordable, and affordable is what I'm interested in.
However, as of right now -- my favorite Avon product is the Mega Effects mascara brush.

BEAUTY4FREE2: What is your favorite drugs store product?
MEGHAN: Actually, right now I have a nameless eyeshadow pallet made of 10 shades of brown, 1 white and 1 orange. It applies and looks MUCH nicer than a lot of the more pricey eye shadows I've used in the past.
NOTE: I asked Meghan to send me a picture of her palette and I had to laugh when she did! Her palette is exactly the same one I am using!

BEAUTY4FREE2U: What make-up do you wear on a daily basis?
MEGHAN: I find it difficult to leave my house without being dolled up at least "naturally", but I cannot seem to manage my day without foundation, some mascara and eyeliner.
BEAUTY4FREE2U: What is your favorite evening make-up?
MEGHAN: If you're referring to an evening look by this, I'd definitely suggest a nice bold smokey eye, perhaps a little bit of glitter, well filled in eyebrows, a nice contoured face using foundation, bronzer and concealer and a pretty colored lip gloss.
BEAUTY4FREE2U: Do you subscribe to a beauty box and if so which one?
MEGHAN: I have not subscribed to a beauty box.
BEAUTY4FREE2U: What is the one thing you would like to do before you die?
MEGHAN: I'd definitely like to get back into musical theatre before I die. I know it sound silly, but it was something I was passionate about in high school but found myself unable to participate in as an adult because of how time consuming and demanding it was.
BEAUTY4FREE2U: What is the craziest thing you ever done?
MEGHAN: Believe it or not, the craziest thing I've ever done is move out of my parents house. When I moved out at 18, I thought I had the world in my hands and that nothing could stop me -- I never thought being "grown up" could be as difficult as it has been for me, but I'm loving every minute of being independent and having my own responsibilities.
BEAUTY4FREE2U: Is there anything in your life you would go back and change...if so what and why?
MEGHAN: I have no regrets. While I think I've made some poor choices in my past, they have made me who I am today. I wouldn't change a thing. I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason.
BEAUTY4FREE2U: What is that one thing that you think about that always puts a smile on your face?
MEGHAN: My brand new nephew always puts a smile on my face. I've been waiting so long for my brother to finally have a baby, and I couldn't have been more excited when it happened. He's the joy of my life and just so darn cute!
BEAUTY4FREE2U: Who is your favorite Blogger?
MEGHAN: I don't have a favorite blogger, personally. I admire many different bloggers and so far there isn't really one that I love than the other. Everyone expresses themselves differently through their blogs and I think they're all inspirational, informal and great to follow. I tend to find more often than not, more admiration towards the young bloggers who write about their experiences into the real world as an adult whether it be college or living on their own. It's something I wish I had thought of when I was younger.
