Today I thought I’d do a little post on my favourite beauty bloggers of the moment. I will admit that these are primarily and wholly Youtube based, but that’s pretty much how I got into blogging myself so I’m sure you will find these just as great as I do.
The 5 blogs included in this post cover beauty, lifestyle and food so they tend to be more like a website version of vlogging, I guess. But all of them started out how I wanted mine to, based mainly on beauty and lifestyle. These girls are brilliant, they vary in age but they post regularly, and give REALLY honest insights into products and often show tips and tricks.
Here is the run down of all five:
1. Tanya Burr –
Tanya Burr was the first Youtuber that I started watching. She has some really old video’s of her make up tutorials and even back then she was brilliant! With a background in working on cosmetics counters, she really knows her stuff and now has progressed so far that she even has her own range of nail polishes and lip glosses stocked online and in UK Superdrug stores. Her blog is fantastic, although she doesn’t post as regularly as she uploads Youtube videos, she writes how she comes across in her uploads: Honest, kind and funny!
It’s also great to get an insight into her crazy life now that Youtube is her job, so she often does posts on events that she’s gone to, and any travelling she has done for work/promotional events.
2. Viviannadoesmakeup –
VDM is on my favourites bar along with Tanya’s blog above. Vivianna (AKA…Anna) is a hardcore beauty blogger. Again, she also has a youtube channel but her blog is brilliant. The first thing that I love about her blog is the minimalist style, and I love that it is so image focused. She does fantastic close ups of products and images of when she’s used them, along with more honest product reviews. This girl posts EVERY DAY, and her content never falters. She’s brilliantly funny, genuine and passionate about all things beauty.
3. Lilypebbles –
I came to know Lily Pebbles quite late I think, and honestly although I do love her blog, I think it’s my least favourite of the 5 I have included here today. Very good friends with Anna above, Lily also posts about high end and high street make up, and lifestyle. I think the more beauty bloggers you look at who are in the same circles (especially youtube) tend to review the same products around the same time. I have found with Lily, that because I prefer blogs such as VDM and Zoella a bit more, I have usually already seen some of the products that she reviews.
All that aside though, again she uses fantastic imagery, and honest funny reviews to keep her readers, and it’s still great to sit with a cup of tea, slurp away and read until your heart is content :).
4. Velvet Gh0st –
I would probably say that Gabby is the most irregular blogger of the 5, but she makes up for that with her true and genuine personality, and truly funny writing. I really love the tutorials that she uploads to youtube, and I think she is probably the youngest of the group of bloggers I have gathered here. She doesn’t give a toss what people think, and she is SO normal and I love that.
Also, she’s gorgeous! Take a look at her blog for funny reviews, hauls and honest thoughts on life.
5. Zoella –
This girl is brilliant. She started off just having her own little blog, which slowly but surely grew and grew, whilst she built up her Youtube channel. Exciting times are coming for Zoe, she is publishing her first novel this year, and also bringing out her own beauty tools range. She’s the most honest, genuine and lovely person (I haven’t even met her but I can just tell), and it’s no wonder that she now has around 6 million followers (youtube, twitter, instagram…you name it).
She took a break from blogging for a while, during the time that things really started to take off for her. But now she’s back, with great informative posts about beauty, interior design, lifestyle thoughts and just funny honest musings. I think her channel is now my favourite Youtube channel, especially for Vlogs!
