I am not the girliest of girls. Write that as the understatement of the year. But despite my complete ineptitude in all things girly, I really like girl stuff (but not exclusive to girls) like make up and fashion, especially skin care. There is just something so addictive about watching beauty gurus on YouTube talk about stuff that you just don’t have the disposable income for. Besides YouTube, I get my fill of all things beauty here on WordPress.
A few days ago I sent out this post to the world to let the beauty and fashion bloggers of WP know that I am hunting them. Not to harm them of course but to feature them in my Follow Fridays post. A lot of bloggers responded, some I’ve already been following, some new and I have instantly fallen in love with. So if you like beauty, lifestyle, fashion or anything else girly (or non girly) posts, then maybe you should check the following blogs out.
This blog has it all, Product Reviews, DIY’s, Fashion news and sometimes, cookie recipes! The thing I really liked about this blog is that Urjasi features a lot of drug store products in her reviews. Her posts are on point and pretty much what you see is what you get kind of vibe, in a good way.
I suggest this post: Urjasi’s Top 10 Drugstore Mascaras blog post made me consider actually using mascara.
A fairly new blog I guess because there are only a few posts. Just in time for you to fall in love with Penelope’s OOTD pictures which are just… Let’s just say I wish I was that cool at what 14-15? Penelope, teach me your ways!
I suggest this post: Penelope’s “Uptown Funk” Thanksgiving OOTD post which features the cutest baby blue sandals I’ve ever seen.
Kim is a “typically British” beauty and lifestyle blogger. Other than make up and fashion posts, Kim talks about her life in Britain, how she deals with her skin issues and just being your best positive self. And if that’s not enough for you to give her a follow, Kim has an adorable brown pup that just melts my robot heart.
I mean just look at this baby!
I suggest this post: Kim shares her must have skin care products for acne prone skin that we can all learn from.
When I said I’m not a girly girl, I wasn’t trying to be cute. In fact, if you take a look at my unmanicured short stubby nails then you would probably be convinced. Maybe too convinced. So it’s a surprise that I was drawn into a nail artist’s blog. Oh I’m sorry, a licensed nail technician (fancaay!). Maybe it’s the cool nail tutorials. Maybe it’s Amy’s Southern Charm. Who knows?! Besides all things nails, Amy also blogs about her views on skin care, OOTD’s and she has a YouTube channel too!
I suggest this post: Amy’s video on Nail Art 101 makes me think that I can actually do it.
Sarmistha is a passionate fashion blogger from India. She features some of the dopest clothing combinations that I think I can also pull off! Sometimes you think a certain pattern or a certain color won’t work with another but Sarmistha tells you “I’ll make it work!” ala Tim Gunn.
I suggest this post: The blog’s round up of Sarmistha’s favorite outfits of 2014 which makes me consider buying a jumpsuit.
Before following Very Bangled I never realized how pretty bangles are. Margaret does a great job of tying in her bangle combinations with a certain theme of her day to day life as a store owner in San Francisco. You don’t even have to share Margaret’s obsession of bangles to start following her. If you like adorable humans then she’s it!
I suggest this post: Not to sound completely biased (Margaret is sort of my blog mom) but there are a lot of LOL posts – seriously, Margaret can be a little crazy – but you can start with this one.
I’m keeping it in the blog family. I would be remiss if I make a beauty Follow Friday and not feature my twin Cee. Her love for anime is what initially brought us together (I make it sound so cheesey) but she can put up a beauty related post that just makes me wish she posts more regularly. If you’re subscribed to Birchbox, or considering subscribing for this type of service then you need to follow Cee because she doesn’t hold back in any of her reviews.
I suggest this post: Being a newbie at this whole make up game, Cee comes to my rescue with this Make Up Starter Kit post.
WordPress has a buttload of great beauty blogs, but in the interest of keeping this short and readable (don’t even deny that short attention span!) I’m going to make a part 2 for beauty Follow Fridays in the coming weeks. So if you’re a beauty blogger that I haven’t featured yet, don’t fret, you can like this post and I can check your blog so I can tell the rest of WordPress about it.
Talking about beauty stuff just validates my femininity even if I am slouching in my dirty sweats. Tell me in the comments what makes you beautiful? A dark red lipstick? A magic elixir? Tell me all your secrets!
Till then, stay gorgeous.
