My 5 Favorite Beauty Blogs To Read & Why I Love Them So Much

As you know by now, I love all things beauty.  Makeup, hair products, skincare, and every other beauty category are all of interest to me.  It’s a big hobby of mine.  I love getting the scoop on the latest products to the market as well as learning expert advice on makeup application and other beauty techniques.  Beauty blogs are a great way to get that information.

I typically start my day with a cup of coffee and reading a beauty blog or two, depending on how much time I have before I have to jump into my daily plans.  It’s such a luxurious way to begin my day and I enjoy the comforting ritual of it.

So which beauty blogs do I read?  I’m excited to share that with you as well as why these 5 choices are my faves.

1. The Small Things Blog

I’ve been reading this blog for YEARS.  As in, I’ve been following Kate almost since the beginning.  I’m a very loyal reader.  If I could only choose one of these to read, it’d be this one.  Why do I love it so much?  Kate is just likeable!  She’s also a former hair stylist and is very knowledgeable about makeup so she has a wealth of fabulous information on her blog.  I love learning from her!  Another reason I follow her is that she’s a fair-skinned blonde (like yours truly here) and what looks good on her almost always looks good on me.  I advise everyone to find a beauty guru that has similar coloring and eye/hair color as you do so that you can look to them for inspiration.

2. The Lauren Elizabeth

Next up is this blog which just happens to be written by the sister of The Small Things Blog’s author.  Lauren focuses on fashion and apartment style as well as beauty.  I always get fashion inspiration when I visit her blog.  Her style is a little big edgier than mine so it encourages me to step out of my comfort zone a bit.

3. Maskcara

This cleverly named blog belongs to a gorgeous brunette named Cara.  She’s a makeup artist as well as having her very own line of cosmetics available to purchase.  She’s quite amazing.  While she’s fabulous at all sorts of makeup, she always wows me with her skills in brows and contouring.  If either of those are a struggle for you then jump over to her blog and you’re sure to find the instruction you need.

4. Anna Saccone

I’m such a fan girl when it comes to Anna Saccone!  If I ever met her, I know I’d be too tongue-tied to talk!   She’s beautiful, petite and inspiring in every way to me.  While her blog is mostly about beauty, it also features recipes, fitness inspiration, fashion and parenting advice.  I can’t get enough of her!  She also has a YouTube channel if you prefer to watch videos.  I think the one thing I admire most about Anna is that she knows herself.  She knows what works for her and what doesn’t.  That inspires me to learn what works best for me and have the confidence to live in my own tailored just for me beauty/fashion zone.

5. Southern Curls And Pearls

This blog is one I just happened upon after falling down a rabbit hole one day.  I don’t read it every day but there’s something about this blog that keeps me coming back.  Maybe it’s her delightful southern flair?  I can’t say!  But I will say that her blog posts are always interesting and enjoyable.

Check these blogs out and tell me which ones you love! Also, I’d love to hear which beauty blogs you read on a regular basis.  A girl can never read too many!
