All my ladies know the struggle of spending hours scrolling through Pinterest, Insta, or the world wide web looking for beauty products, tutorials, and ideas that ~actually~ work. I get it, those YouTube make-up girls must be magicians, and that lipstick definitely does NOT look that good in person… Lucky for you, I’m here with two of my favorite beauty blogs!
First up, we have DupeThat! After finding their Instagram account a few months ago, I have been hooked. They take products, mostly lip colors, and test them out against other similar colors of different brands. This is super helpful for so many reasons. First of all, it lets us know what we can sub for an expensive MAC lipstick. Not to mention, some brands aren’t available in some geographical areas. Knowing what colors look alike from different brands can save you a ton of money from accidentally buying the same shade multiple times (guilty).
Another reason to love them? COUPON CODES. That’s right, they team up with some of the best brands and offer discounts, usually 10-20 percent, to their readers!
I’d love to see them test out other products in the future. It would be great to see how different foundations, highlight and contour pallets, or eyebrow tools work compared to each other!
Next up is Miss Maven, a beauty blog ran by Teni Panosian! Her Instagram and YouTube are full of pictures for inspiration and some of the best how-to videos out there! She’s open about not being a make-up artist, but rather a consumer just like us that happens to know a whole lot about the products everyone wants to know about. Her site is gorgeously designed, I can easily spend hours just scrolling.
You can read her reviews and watch her tutorials right from the website. Easy peasy!
She isn’t just a beauty blog, she posts about travel, style, and lifestyle. There’s some beautiful inspiration if you’re looking into decorating, too!
The only thing I’d want more from Miss Maven is more videos, but there’s only so many hours in the day. So until then, she will remain one of my absolute favorite beauty bloggers.
Here’s one more for free, my favorite magazine-turned-Instagram-account for all things hair. I’m always on their Insta looking for my next cut or color inspiration!
So here they are! My two favorite beauty blogs and my one favorite hair magazine! Enjoy!
