Here at 4Leisure we love reading beauty blogs. Beauty blogs are a fabulous way of keeping up with all the latest beauty styles and products, and hearing industry news and gossip!
Blogs have really taken off in the last couple of years, helped along by free blogging platforms like Blogger and WordPress. There are millions of blogs worldwide in dozens of different genres, including parenting, fashion, technology, and of course, beauty.
Here’s our pick of what’s going on in the beauty blogging world right now.
The Sunday Girl is a fan of Instagram – aren’t we all? – and has compiled a handy list of accounts to follow for all things nails and make-up. Instagram is a brilliant way of getting sneaky peeks at new products, and to borrow ideas.
If video is more your thing, then Sugarpuffish has a great range of vlogs (that’s video-blogs to the rest of us) talking about various beauty products. Her blog is a wonderful resource for those who have sensitive skin or suffer from conditions like eczema or other allergies.
Product reviews and previews are a huge feature on beauty blogs and this review of Essie 2013 Winter Collection nail varnish from GlamBeautys is a good look at what’s sure to be popular for the Christmas season – can’t beat a bit of sparkle!
Over on Pretty on Pink, there is a sneak peek into the Souk Souk Little Green Beauty Box – what does it contain and, more importantly, is it good value for money? BeautyGeekUK tries out the Kiko Eyeclics and Infinity Eyeshadows. If hair is more your thing, Leeane Marie tries out the Babyliss Boutique Loose Waves Hair Tong.
Look out on beauty blogs for competitions and giveaways too! Beauty blogs are a fantastic source of beauty related prizes – Miss Budget Beauty has a give away for Mac make-up. It closes on the 15th December 2013, so be quick!
