15 Beauty Must Reads for 2015

15 Beauty Must Reads for 2015

I must stress that I read thousands of blogs, I much prefer blogs to magazines and tend to go on reading binges every second night or so. Last year I shared fourteen of my favourite beauty blogs here all of which I am still a fan of. As so many enjoyed seeing what is on my reading list so to speak I thought I'd share another bundle of my favourite beauty blogs. If beauty dedicated sites aren't what you are looking for in the coming days I will share my favourite non-beauty blogs over on Swedish.Blue. So without further ado here are fifteen beauty blogs (in no particular order) I think everyone should bookmark...

The Dauphine - An achingly hip and beautiful beauty (and style) blog that focuses on the writers favourite products and finds rather than new launches. As much as I enjoy new products, I do have a special place in my heart for any blog that goes against the grain and this is exactly that.

Kaushal Beauty - Brimming full of beautiful imagery, no nonsense yet fun reviews and make-up tutorials it really is easy to see why like so many others I am a huge fan of Kaushal Beauty. I also adore Kaushal's positive approach to life, if you follow her on social media (which you should) you will understand.

Zoe Newlove - Zoe is a make-up artist so not only does she know her way around a palette or two but she knows what works and what doesn't. Expect beautiful imagery, make-up tutorials and straight to the point reviews.

Miss MakeUp Magpie - If like myself you want to know all you can about a product and like in-depth reviews Miss MakeUp Magpie is your gal. A blog bursting at the seams with up to date reviews coupled with stunning imagery. What is not to like?

Love & Liquor - Have you ever read a blog and thought "Yep that is my make-up twin right there?". Well for me Love & Liquor is that very blog, if Laura likes a product I can pretty much bet my last penny on my thoughts being the same. A great mix of reviews both budget and high end coupled with hauls.

A Little Boat Sailing - If like myself you enjoy reading about fellow bloggers staple products coupled with large, beautiful images Amy's blog should be your next stop. It is whimsically designed and so well written that you will be on to your third mug of tea before you know it.

Farrah Tells - Like most I respect honesty when it comes to beauty blogging and trust me they don't come much more honest than Farrah! She has impeccable taste be it in skin care or matte lipstick not to mention she has introduced me to so many lesser known brands that I would have overlooked. A clever and insightful blog which I can not recommend enough.

A Little Pop of Coral - Jo is a Brit living in NYC (the dream if you ask me), so if you like reading about American products coupled with British products this should more than keep you satisfied. Don't blame me if it has you aching to move to New York City day, one day!

The Black Pearl Blog - Sandra is such a lovely lady with one of the most visually stunning beauty blogs around. Expect great reviews with swatches not just on the arm but make-up applied to the face too. A must read as far as I am concerned.

Shameless Flipperies - If Karamia says a beauty product is worth splurging on I take her word as gospel, she has never lead me wrong - say on the flip side (no pun intended) if a product isn't worth owning Karamia won't pull punches. Expect a beautifully written and presented beauty blog with no fluff or filler.

MakeupSavvy - My go to blog for budget recommendations and nail art, I warn you now Fee's blog is so visually alluring that you may loose several hours of your life marvelling at her divine images.

A Girl and a Beauty Blog - Variety is the spice of life and when it comes to beauty Siobhan has this down to a fine art, be it a drool worthy haul, a FOTD or reviews this blog has it all. I simply adore Siobhan's chatty writing style it almost feels like visiting an old but clued up friend each time I pop by for a read.

DizzyBrunette3 - Corrie has the most amazing hair ever (fact) so who better to go to when you are in the need for a hair tutorial or two. I may or may not be practising her Victoria's Secret Tutorial nightly in the hope of swoon worthy locks!

BuyNowBlogLater - I'm sure oodles of you already follow Laura but if you don't consider this your nudge. Laura is brutally honest when it comes to make-up, you can trust her judgement and bet your bottom dollar that any foundation you have been considering purchasing she has already tried. A great no nonsense blog with brilliant recommendations.

Beauty Aesthetic - Great product reviews, suggestions and beauty tips from my favourite blogging duo. It doesn't hurt that they are also Glaswegian and my fellow blogging buddies!
