I follow a variety of blogs, including those from my absolute favorite category, beauty! Does anyone else feel like there aren't enough beauty blogs out there?? Whenever I come across a really excellent one, it totally makes my day.
For me, a great beauty blog is made up of awesome product reviews, beauty routines & new beauty trends. So here're 5 beauty blogs that I follow on a day-to-day basis that meet my stringent criteria. And if you've a favorite beauty blog, then let everyone know in the comments!
1. The Beauty Department
Looking for a one-stop source for all your daily hair, makeup and beauty needs?? Say no more!! Head over to The Beauty Department, a website founded by Lauren Conrad, her hairstylist & makeup artist. To say that The Beauty Department is bunches of fun is an understatement. Whether you're a beauty junkie or a girl simply seeking a new beauty regimen, there's something for everyone.
If there's a beauty-related question that's been lingering on your mind, now's the time to ask! Or maybe you just want to share some tips or tricks of your own? Whatever the case may be, The Beauty Department is always looking for input!!! Organized into distinct categories, their website is super user-friendly with easy-to-follow illustrated tutorials. Don't forget to mark your calendars for 'Mani Monday' & 'Fashion Friday,' these are 2 features you won't want to miss!!
2. Indian Vanity Case
Indian Vanity Case blog was started a few years back by Cynthia Zacharica & it was just a simple blog with no categories, but every post was simply amazing. 4 yrs later, Indian Vanity Case is EVERYWHERE!! I constantly see girls sharing from their Facebook page & I've even seen the lovely lady in Cosmo now & then.
When you first enter Indian Vanity Case, any beauty freak will immediately fall in ♥ with their simple layout, pink color scheme & eye-catching photos. The site now consists of 6 categories: Makeup Videos, Makeup Tutorials, Looks, Blush Bar, Lipstick Drawer & Swatch Gallery.
3. A Model Recommends
I stumbled on this new-to-me beauty blogger by accident some months ago. The actual blogger is a real model, looks like a model & her taste is really really lovely. Plus, it's nice to get the goods from the kids who live it every single day. This model does have a look that I do ♥. Her hair is nice, her eyes are way on the side of her head & she has a huge space in her front teeth, which I ♥. It's that mystical creature look.
But better than all, she just speaks to us like a normal girlfriend & she does have really excellent taste in makeup. And I do like the simple model-esque looks that she does with cosmetics. She's simple but it's that look everyone loves. Listen, when you work in the industry, you've a lot of insight to make up as they have their faces done for their jobs. So check out A Model Recommends. I'm pretty happy to have found her. And I like her dry humor, too.
Janine Falcon, editor turned beauty geek, plus contributors Liza Herz & the anonymous award-season red-carpet commentary from Cranky Beauty Pants give playful reviews of the latest, greatest (and sometimes, both!) beauty products, offbeat trends, plus how-to makeup tips & red carpet interviews.
Why I keep coming back: The self-professed beauty geeks serve up a comprehensive expert guide to the multiple ways of achieving a smoky eye, plus the importance of (all together now) accepting the inevitable compliments that ensue.
5. The Sydney Girl
Joelyne Karan is a busy Sydney girl who finds her freedom in blog writing, photos, fashion & beauty. Joelyne works a 40 hour week & enjoys checking out the latest trends & writing about personal experiences on her blog page 'The Sydney Girl'.
You'll find that this blog is just what you need to give you the latest fashion tips, unique styles & the confidence to succeed in the fashion world. Teaming up with some of the most popular Australian brands, Joelyne has worked with Westfield Australia & Fashion Exposed Australia. Joelyne was also featured in The Cosmopolitan magazine twice for her bright manicure & colourful fashion.
