Beauty blogging can be an expensive business - well if you let it be. It can also be difficult to come up with new ideas for blog posts several times a week, or daily for that matter. I may not have a whole of advice for beauty bloggers (I'd hate to regurgitate the same information that is already out there, or worse lead someone astray) but I have composed a list of 100 easy to put into practise blog post ideas.
My general consensus was to ensure that the majority, if not all of the below prompts can be used without purchasing new products - you don't need to spend money to blog, that is a redundant idea. As no two people are the same, we could all use the following blog posts concepts and in theory no two would be identical. My prompts are in no way ground breaking but they may help to shake off a few cobwebs and fire up inspiration for your own blog posts.
