Interview with Poppy King of Lipstick Queen

This post isn't entirely frugal-related, but I wanted to share these links to something that I've been working on recently for my beauty blog, One of the great things about writing is that you sometimes get the opportunity to interview really interesting people. I was at a beauty event for work recently, and I spotted Poppy King, the founder of one of my favorite makeup brands, Lipstick Queen.

I introduced myself and told her that I manage a beauty blog, and she was kind enough to give me her contact info so that we could set up an interview! She's really an accomplished entrepreneur -- she started her first company when she graduated from high school at age 18! Below are the links to my posts -- in Part 1, she discusses building her business and being an entrepreneur, and in Part 2 she gives makeup advice and talks about the general feeling that women have toward wearing lipstick these days.
