10 Top Beauty Bloggers Share Their Best Beauty Tricks and Fall Must-Haves

Posted by October 24, 2012 12:15 pm

The beauty industry has numerous spokes to its ever-turning wheel—from hair and makeup stylists to product innovators—all tasked with finding new ways to keep us gorgeous from day to day. But where do beauty fans hear about the latest trends to buy and products to purchase? Increasingly, it’s online.

Bloggers have become a force to be reckoned with in all industries, but in the beauty world, they’re especially powerful—doling out honest opinions on products (often without a care for advertisers), giving behind-the-scenes access, and being intimate with their (devoted) followings. By creating an online conversation both on their blog platforms and on various social media outlets, beauty bloggers know how to get down and dirty with a product—and will reveal if a certain product doesn’t give the results it should.

But who are the real women behind your favorite blogs? We brought ten of the best beauty bloggers into our studios to talk about the products they’re relying on this fall, the best beauty tricks they’ve learned along the way, and—of course—what advice they’d give others trying to start a career in the beauty blogging business.

  1. How about we stop going heavy-handed with the liquify tool in Photoshop on these poor girls? I’m pretty sure most of these women have thighs bigger than their necks in real life.

      Wow… Jealous?? Its so clear that true beauty is seen through the lens of kindness. Its terrible to see your hate and anger… Actually its just sad. I hope you find happiness Rachel.

      If you don’t have anything kind to say, say nothing.

      agree. the portrayed norm of the female form is a gross misrepresentation of real woman. The amount of times we see these images, along with other false stereo types, the repetition ect. effects our brain negatively whether one is conscious of it our not. I am not blaming the site. Also- I am not jealous,lol-the post after yours.(I am also a photographer) I care about the state & social evolution of human being. Starting a conversation about it is a start. :) nice call :) ~peace~love~ *

  2. Personally, I ike being a more voluptuous and curvy woman than those high fashion models. That is what they are…..models. Not real women like myself, and every other woman I know…..I, personally, do not want to be a stick figure.

    For my two pennies… the only place to get independent beauty advice, products or whatever is with the independent beauty blogging community. Keep it!!

  4. Lisa says:

    Who cares what the beauty bloggers look like? Just appreciate what they write about, period.
