When I was a child, I don’t remember hearing about YouTube and blogs so would never have dreamt that this was something I would enjoy using. I love reading blogs and it all started from reading BellaNaija, a few years ago. I know BellaNaija may not be seen as a blog but that’s what I saw it as. My interest in reading blogs such as SisiYemmie and watching YouTube videos by Patricia Bright and Shameless Maya opened my eyes to the fact that there’s a world out there beyond the one in which I live in.
I remember watching YouTube makeup tutorials and thinking I don’t even apply makeup that much. Little did I know that one day, I would have an interest in understanding the beauty industry from the business angle. These tutorials also make you think of buying beauty products that you don’t need. However, I like to believe that we can always exercise self-control and buy products based on our knowledge of our bank balance. I can only say don’t be persuaded to buy products you see in a product haul on YouTube when you know you can’t afford it. That’s my two cents on that.
