I love checking make-up blogs and reading magazines for beauty/wellness advice that I can condense and pass on to you. Scroll to the bottom of this page you’ll see a blogroll with my favorite blogs and websites. Here I break down my current top 3 beauty blogs, but I really love all on my list.
1. Make-up Geek
Marlena is amazing – she has tons of great tips and make-up application tutorials. I will say I think she is a bit heavy handed with the eye make-up – especially for daytime looks, but you can take her advice and use softer colors and less shimmer. One thing I really like about Marlena is that she uses high end products but often suggests drugstore alternatives or will do entire tutorials using NYX or other inexpensive brands.
Laura is a sassy Brit whose self-deprecating humor is refreshing on a beauty blog. She also does video tutorials on youtube. In addition to her make-up advice and reviews, I like her overall style. She always looks chic and gorgeous. Laura is the queen of the smokey eye/nude lip combo.
I recently discovered pursebuzz and love that she not only gives beauty advice and reviews, (on a mix of high end and inexpensive products), she also does beautiful hair tutorials.
4. Honorable mention:
Belledujour reminds me of an American Lollipop26 – a chic gal with great advice.
Sephora Brand Lip Gloss – Ick
I’ve tried a few tubes of Sephora brand lip gloss and have been disappointed each time. The photo is Precious Pink but like most of their glosses, it goes on very clear. I would expect at least a hint of the color that the tube indicates. It’s sticky and tacky, but most lip glosses are so this isn’t my complaint. I’m grossed out by the chemical-y taste. If Drano had a lip gloss line, I’d imagine it would taste like Sephora brand glosses.
