Popular Blogger: Clumps of Mascara's Brittany Thomas

Thursday August 19, 2010

Beauty scribe Brittany Thomas had a humble start as a 14-year-old teeny bopper blogger.  11 years later, her popular Orlando, Florida-based site Clumps of Mascara recently celebrated its 3rd anniversary and shows no signs of slowing down.

ChickAdvisor: What did you hope to achieve with your blogging?

Brittany Thomas: When I first started blogging, I had no intentions of trying to reach the masses. Proof of that shows in my horribly written beginning entries. I used Clumps of Mascara as a journal and it wasn’t until I started coming across other beauty blogs that I realized that I would love to be the voice for women who are new to make-up.

CA: What is the coolest experience you’ve had as a result of your writing?

BT: Being recognized! I felt like a mini-celebrity the first time someone said, “Are you Brittany from Clumps of Mascara?” O.M.G.

CA: What was the strangest thing that’s happened?

BT: [I received] an email from a gentleman who asked me to marry him. He wrote a lengthy email about how he loved my YouTube channel and couldn’t stop having dreams about me. He was serious too. I declined. And then blocked his email because that’s just creepy.

(It's because no one can resist your dazzling smile, Brittany!)

CA: Who is your favourite designer?

BT:  I don’t think I have one. I don’t wear many designer pieces. I’m more of a Macy’s I.N.C girl. I love fashion shows and I enjoy keeping up with the trends but I don’t think I could choose a favorite.

CA: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you go?

BT: It used to be NYC but now I’d love to live in Tokyo. My Japanese isn’t so hot but I would learn faster if I knew I was moving there!

Have you met Brittany yet?

I was obsessed with makeup from a really young age too! My first product was a mini kit that my Dad bought for me (it was called something like "Little Miss") that had pink and blue eyeshadow, bright pink blush, and bright pink lipstick...I was a real looker with it on. haha!

Great blog Brittany!!

I wish I would have journaled more during my teen years. What a hoot to look back on those days and hear my 14-year-old self! All I have from that time are unfortunate, awkward pictures of me trying not to show my braces when I smile.

Brittany, I love that you have been writing since you were 14. I was just telling the story to Ali of when I was 10 and my friends would come over and say "let's play Barbies!" and I would say "umm no let's play MAKE-UP!" I have actually been a certified make-up artist for 10 years now, but I tell people that I have really been one since I was 5! :)
