Best of 2013: Beauty Blogs
Continuing my Best of 2013 series I now bring you a list of my favorite beauty blogs from 2013. A few disclaimers beforehand. I by no means intend to say some blogs are better than others. I’m not entitled to decide which blogs are best. I titled this “Best Of” for the sheer sake of continuity. There are other blogs besides these that I thoroughly enjoy (I’m following 1,200+ blogs on Bloglovin’ alone) but today I wanted to shine the spotlight on these. I tried not to mention blogs I’ve featured before in Blogger Love posts or blogs that have a big following already. I hope you enjoy my list and find some new blogs to read!
Before continuing to my list of 13 Best Beauty Blogs from 2013, I want to introduce you to my lovely December advertiser Laura Cristina who blogs at Lipstick Mysteries. Laura is a 22-year-old full time teacher who just started blogging recently. She’s also holding a giveaway where you can win a MAC Viva Glam Lipstick. It ends in 2 days so enter here quickly! You can follow her on Bloglovin’ through this link. Be sure to give her blog a look!
Now, in no particular order…
07. The Misty Mom
Shari’s blog is definitely not a new discovery and I’ve been reading it for a while. She takes the most gorgeous photographs and has a great balance of product reviews, how-to’s, and makeup looks. She’s so similar to me in terms of makeup shopping habits. Browsing her blog is like browsing a list of products I already love or have on my immediate wish list.
Life, Set Sail is run by the beautiful Brittany from Canada. I love reading her blog because she’s straight and to the point but her reviews never lack information. She does these “blogger spotlight” posts where she showcases blogs she loves which shows what a great blogger she is. I love seeing girls in the community support each other.
Gemma is a blogger from the U.K. and I love that she features skincare items very often on her blog. I also really like that the selection of products she reviews is different from the usual items seen in most blogs. Although, reading GMJ is a bit of a torture because she talks about a lot of products I can’t get in my country, lol!
12. Lipstick With Some Sunshine
Tammie is a beauty blogger and mommy from the U.S. Her blog features beautiful makeup photography and a lot of “top” or “best of” lists which I love. Also, I think every beauty lover/blogger should read her post 10 Signs You’re A Beauty Addict.
13. Makeup Mouse
Although she’s mostly active on Facebook and not as much on her blog, I had to feature Heather. She is a makeup inspiration for me. As some of you know, I’m all about expressing yourself through makeup, not being afraid of colors or avant-garde looks. Basically, makeup art. Browsing through her blog is quite inspiring and anyone who appreciates theater, art or is an aspiring makeup artist will love her creations.
Phew! And there they are, my top 13 beauty blogs of 2013. It was hard to narrow it down to thirteen as this list could go on for ages. There are a lot of great bloggers out there. Again, I tried to feature blogs that I hadn’t featured already. If you want more suggestions, check out my blogroll. There are a lot of lovely ladies in there who I adore (like Cassie, Jennie, Jessica, Bri, Lau, Megan, Sandy, Amanda, Rikki, to name a few).
Also, I’ve seen a lot of Best Beauty Blogs lists these past few days that all feature Vivianna Does Makeup, What I Heart Today, Essie Button, Zoella, Tanya Burr, etc. And while that’s very nice and well (and I’m a fan of their blogs too), chances are that if you’re subscribed to a beauty blog and clicked that sort of post, you probably already follow those bloggers too (as their following is quite, quite large). That’s just my two cents. With that, I hope you found some new blogs to subscribe to in 2014. Have a Happy New Year, loves!
