Aprill Coleman is a Beauty Blogger at Hey Aprill
Tell us about yourself
My name is Aprill Coleman, owner of the blog Hey Aprill, and I am also a freelance writer. Hey Aprill has been on the web for five years now. My six year anniversary is May 2016 and I am excited! I review Beauty Products, with an emphasis on those for women of color. I also write some lifestyle posts. I am a married mother of five children from Jackson, MS. Although beauty is my passion, I also love to fish, grill, and binge-watch documentaries.
What made you a beauty blogger?
I ran out of money to finish my degree. I was a stay-at-home mom and I needed something to do in my spare time. I love beauty products and I wanted brown girls to have a safe space on the web to enjoy beauty products fit for them. I am really happy that I was able to reinvent myself through blogging and it is now my full-time job!
What is the most popular topic on your site?
Beauty for sure. My readers are passionate about finding the best skin-care products, and affordable cosmetics that fit their needs. Five Products Every Skincare Stash Needs is my hottest article. I give very in-depth reviews of products. A few of these reviews are sponsored, but I am always honest.
Who do you write for?
I write for moms that do not have a lot of money but deserve to look and feel beautiful. I write for women of color who are afraid to put on a bright red lipstick, or some other bold tone. As a mother and a woman of color, I always found it difficult to find products that fit my needs. I am working to change that. I want my blog to be a resource for all women.
What is your goal for your blog?
I want to be the beauty problem-solver! I want to move into the new year continuing to create relevant, helpful, and engaging content. A new blogging trend is born every day, but I’m sticking to my guns. Content is king, and everyone has a problem that makes them search for a solution.
I am a beauty and lifestyle blogger and freelance writer. After dropping out of college in pursuit of a degree in Information Technology and Securities, Hey Aprill was born! Hey Aprill is a beauty and lifestyle blog for women looking for the hottest and most affordable beauty products on the market.
