Mei’s Website “Makeup 101” is well organized and regulated with a good mixture of Blue and White tone colored illustrations. She introduces her blog as “Small space is dedicated to sharing information that, hopefully, you will find helpful.” and said that she is self-taught the makeup for over 8years, by a youtube. She is going to share the knowledge about it in her blog and wanted to walk through different products and the criteria that she used, and trying to explain to us why it is essential to know the proportions of our face. Her blog uses card themes, makes users choose the article very easy at a sight. However, the theme that she used is very neat, but there are some regreting points about the color because it’s too simple. The website is about makeup, so if there was some colorful design, the blog could be shown as more look bright. The titles for every posting is dark blue, but I would recommend black, bold font to emphasize the sentence. It would help the reader can more feel comfortable while reading the article. Also, if she adds some appropriate illustrations, it could be easier to understand the article because it basically talking about makeup. So, some pictures and illustrations of makeup could be great. In her post, most articles are all written without any pictures or illustration. So, if readers are not really interested in makeup, they hardly can’t focus what she is saying and keep get into the article. However, the article’s mostly explaining about makeup very well, and we can see that she is trying to teach us as well. My favorite post out of all was week ‘3-process post.’ Most of the postings would be better if it contains a banner that represents the post, main article, several images that are related to the post. This post is talking about her self-determination and self PR of blogging. The contents are all good and we can easily understand what she wants to say. Actually Im not really interested in makeup. However, while reviewing this blog, I think I start to get have some interest in makeup and her blog. Also, If I am one of the reader of her blog, I think I can get new information about it as fast as I can and it could be also helpful when I choose some cosmetics for my girlfriend. In addition, I can talk about cosmetics with my girl because this kind of topic is enough to make her excited while chatting together.
