Purple Bow Tie


Natasha Juniar
(call me Nath for short)

Jakarta, June 10th 1997

Skin type?
Sensitive, dehydrated (combination, tend to get oily on T zone but flaky).

Where are you from?
I'm from Indonesia, Jakarta to be exact, on Chinese descent.

You're still quite young, how come you know a lot of makeup?
Don't judge anyone just by their age. I've been introduced to the world of makeup since I was in junior high (more about how I came across makeup thingy here ).

Why did you start blogging?
Honestly, I was bored. I loved makeup ever since I was around 14 so I thought, why not share it?

Who designed your blog?
I modified the blogger template myself using Ethereal as the base template. Blog header is designed by Jason, blog icons are designed by Gwyn (check out her portfolio here), and social media icons are from Lanan Illustration.

Why did you name your blog Violet Brush?
I just like any kind of purple, I thought if I named this blog with 'purple' it's kinda weird, don't you think? So I came up with violet instead. Actually I was planning for Violet Blush but that name was taken TT idk how but I ended up naming this blog Violet Brush :b

Why do you write your posts in English?
English is an international language thus I use English to write my post. I dream not only to become a local (Indonesian) blogger but an international and world-class blogger (I know it's still a long way to go, don't judge me.) Plus, I think this blog as a media for me to practice my English since I used to go to a national plus school but not anymore. You know, mastering a language is about practice. On top of that, my Indonesian grammar ability is actually sucks.

If so, why don't you just write in two languages?
Personally, I don't really like to read blog posts with two languages in particular. It makes the post longer than it should have. I don't want my readers to feel that way and I don't want to present a too-long post. Besides, longer post tends to make my blog heavier to load and no one wants that. Anyway, that's why I installed a translator widget on my sidebar.
P.S.: I'm not saying this to offend anyone, it's just my opinion about a two-language blog post ^^

What camera do you use?
Currently I'm using Sony Alpha 5100 with E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS and E 50mm F1.8 OSS lens for blog photos and Samsung Galaxy S7 camera and Sony Alpha 5100 for Instagram photos.
(Older blog photos used Canon EOS 600D and older Instagram photos used Samsung Galaxy S4)

What app do you use to edit your blog photos?
I use Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Photoscape. I mostly take my photos at daytime with natural sunlight so editing the photos (brightness, contrast, etc.) won't be a pain in the ass :b

What's your favorite cosmetic brand?
I seriously can't choose one. It depends on what type of cosmetics too.

Would you mind to do my makeup?
I'd love to! Please contact me ;)

How did you apply for KSU scholarship?
Okay, I know this is not related to my beauty blog but seriously, I get it quite a lot. Check my answer in ask.fm here and here or simply line me for more details, I'll help you with a happy heart.
