Beauty blogs are rapidly becoming as popular and notable as their sister fashion blogs, and we’ve rounded up our top five favorites for you to peruse. Never wonder how to apply foundation or try out a risky nail color again!
1. Into the Gloss
Into the Gloss is your go-to for quick and easy beauty tips. The site is organized into seven categories: Face, Makeup, Professional, Reviews, Extras, Backstage and Top Shelf.
“The tone is both intelligent and cheeky, and I appreciate the author's sensibilities,” says Alana Peden, beauty blog editor for Her Campus.
The power behind Into the Gloss is none other than Emily Weiss, who was known as the super intern on “The Hills.” This high-powered blog has been featured in countless magazines, from Vogue Paris to Allure to Harper’s Bazaar, and it shows no signs of slowing down.
One of the most interesting sections for up-and-coming collegiettes is the Top Shelf tab, which features successful women who have interviewed with Into the Gloss and talk about their beauty tips and tricks, with photos of their favorite beauty supplies in their own homes. Check out the Top Shelf feature with Charlotte Ronson a young British fashion designer who has made her name known and is now one of the most sought after womenswear designers.
2. Refinery 29
Refinery 29 is more than a beauty blog, but its beauty section is above the rest. It is divided into five organized sections, so you can narrow your search quickly to nails, hair, skincare or new products, but it might be more fun to have a look around. Refinery 29 has everything you need from your basic tutorials to breaking beauty-related news stories, like this one about the disturbing source of a major perfume component.
It also features expert advice on beauty trends and tips, so you no longer need to consult low-quality YouTube videos in your rush to get ready for date night. Ever wondered how to have the perfect brow? Look no further than R29.
