Beauty Monday — My Favorite Beauty Blogs

by Valerie on August 25, 2008 · 8 comments

Happy Monday!

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?

Thanks for the mention! đŸ˜€

Another beauty blog I like is Kiss and Makeup – there’s always sneak peeks of yet-to-be-released products. :)

Hi ms. curator — great suggestion — I need to read kiss and makeup more often.

These are some great blogs. I also love Beauty Addict, Jolie Nadine and Beauty Snob. I was a beauty blog junkie before I found the food blogs. (Don’t tell anyone, but I have over 100 lipsticks in my arsenal!)

SGCC — you must visit — everyone there has too much makeup, LOL. That said, I am getting ready to throw out many expired lip glosses, and I keep putting it off :(
