Welcome back to our Influencer Interview column! Today we are excited to Interview MakeUp Artist and Instagram Influencer Greta Gasparian : @fortheloveofmakeupbaby.
Describe your Instagram profile, what you post and why.
My Instagram is a compilation of all my favorite beauty products, reviews and swatches on the latest releases, my fashion style, and my everyday life.
When did you start your Instagram experience?
I started my Instagram my first year as a UCLA undergrad in 2012.
Did you start with the purpose to make it into a job or did it start as a passion that then became a job?
I’m sure you hear this all the time, but I truly started posting out of passion. Once I realized people were eager for more content that’s when I decided to turn my blogging and Instagram passion into a career.
Which is the post that you published that you like the most or you are most proud of?
Remember when Kylie Jenner’s lips became the topic of every conversation? During that time I decided to do a lip swatch of her signature MAC lip liner and lip pencil. The picture was published in many online articles, appeared all over social media, and till today is a trending image.
How long did it take you to make your first 10,000 followers?
When I first started my Instagram account the beauty market wasn’t as saturated as it is today. I always put out quality content and spent a lot of time on my pictures, so getting to 10K didn’t too long. I believe I was already at 20 or 30k in my first year. Today, it takes triple the work and triple the time to raise your followers.
Have you ever bought followers or likes?
Never! I believe that growing your followers organically is the best way to gain recognition.
