As you can imagine, I read many beauty blogs (especially since I used to write one myself). Some I read every day, some once in a while. The list in my Google Reader keeps growing.
There are many very good, well researched, thoughtful beauty blogs. But we all have favorites and my top 5 are below.
15 Minute Beauty Fanatic is my go-to source for quick beauty tips — I love how all her tips are geared towards an easier beauty routine. I have been reading this blog since its early days 18 months ago. Here is a quick profile of the author, Christine.
All About the Pretty is like a wonderful online beauty magazine. The author, Julia, has many interests within the world of beauty, fashion and lifestyle. Ultimately, her true loves are beauty products, so those are the most discussed on her blog. I was lucky enough to meet Julia at Tranquilspace, the yoga studio I used to go to in Washington. What’s funny is that when I first met her I didn’t realize that I had already been reading her blog for a couple of months already. AATP has been one of my near-daily reads for over two years.
Blogdorf Goodman is another long-time read for me. Annieytown has been writing this blog for three and a half years, and I have been reading it since close to its inception. I love the tone, the reviews are great and she also has some fashion posts.
The Makeup Museum is a fascinating new blog, devoted to makeup packaging and design.
It’s the first blog of its kind that I have ever seen. Makeup Museum’s author is a friend of mine and, while the blog is fairly new, she’s been interested in this topic for years, has degrees in art history and cultural studies, and is a wealth of knowledge in makeup brands, packaging and art.
The Organic Beauty Expert by Andrea Kane. This post is a great summary of her blogging philosophy – 90 to 95% natural (and often organic) products and 100% opinionated. I love reading it ever since I discovered it in October 2006.
So,what are some of your favorite blogs, whether beauty blogs or other blogs?
