Gorgeous product swatches. Skincare reviews. Tips on how to deal with curly hair. Those are just a few of the many beautiful things you'll find when you visit Cosmetics Aficionado, run by beauty blogger Leticia Fontaine. I love Leticia's writing style, her varied topics and the honesty she brings to each and every post. Read on to find out how she got her start in blogging, the blush she can't live without and so much more.

Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
I'm originally from the Pacific Northwest and have spent most of my life here. I'm a Sci-Fi junkie, and I blame my father -- he got me into Star Trek. I am hoping to go back to school to study photography, my next big love along with makeup.

How did you first become interested in beauty, and what led you to start your blog?
I first became interested in beauty after joining a makeup forum. I wanted to just learn the basics, but ended up diving head first into makeup. Now I love everything from soft to dramatic. I followed the blogs of fellow members, and soon had a desire to share my own thoughts and makeup looks.

I love the name of your blog! How did you come up with it?
I really can't recall how I came up with my blog's name. Cosmetics Aficionado just popped into my head and I liked how it sounded.

What are your top 5 favorite beauty products?
How can anyone love just five? :)

What are your top 3 beauty tips?
1) Shampoo only once or twice per week.

2) Color correct dark circles instead of just concealing.

3) Put Carmex (in pot form) on your lips every night before bed to keep them in great shape.

Being a beauty blogger must be fun, but what do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time (hahaha with three kids?), I like to read, binge watch TV shows on Netflix, crochet (which I need to start up again) and play with my doggies.

In addition to your blog, how can The Beauty of Life readers find you on social media?
You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
