Lily Pebbles is one of the biggest beauty and lifestyle bloggers in the UK right now. She has amassed 355k followers on Instagram and 300k subscribers to her YouTube channel. Needless to say, she has a lot of fans. Ahead of appearing at the Beautycon Festival in London, we grabbed Pebbles for a quick five-minute chat.
Byrdie UK: If you had five minutes to get ready, what would you use?
LILY PEBBLES: I'd have to straighten my hair, and then I'd use some concealer, bronzer and mascara! The three essentials.
BYRDIE UK: What's the one beauty product that surprised you (in a good way) this year?
LP: The Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits. I was never a huge Kylie fan, but I was seriously impressed with her makeup line. Everything I've tried so far has been amazing quality.
Byrdie UK: What's the biggest beauty mistake you've ever made?
LP: I once used a too-harsh body scrub on my face, and I was so sore and red for days! Gentle exfoliators all the way.
BYRDIE UK: What's the one thing you would never do when it comes to beauty?
LP: Use face wipes. I have them on hand for cleaning up makeup swatches on my hand, but face wipes don't ever go near my face (unless I'm camping). They dry out my skin, and cleansing is something I really enjoy.
BYRDIE UK: What's the one makeup item you'd use for a party look?
LP: Urban Decay's Diamond Dog eye shadow is a taupe eye shadow with silver sparkle, and it's so gorgeous and festive.
BYRDIE UK: What's the biggest makeup mistake you've ever made?
LP: I spent years wearing black kohl eyeliner inside my water line, but actually it completely shrinks my eyes, and so now it's something I always avoid.
Lily Pebbles will be at Beautycon Festival London, Saturday, 3 December, at Kensington Olympia. For more information beautycon.com/festivals
