20 Beauty Blogmas Ideas

It's now officially December (how did that happen, I feel like I have blinked and the year has passed by) and you may be thinking of joining in with Blogmas? If you aren't familiar with the concept, essentially it involves composing and sharing a new blog post daily. Given how busy December can be, this may be a case of easier said than done. To help you along the way, I have composed a list of 20 festive beauty post ideas; feel free to use as many or as little as you like, be that for blogmas or for general blogging purposes.

1, What is your go to festive lipstick, the one shade that sees you through all occasions? It doesn't have to be red (in fact there's more chance I'll purchase it if it isn't red) but simply the lipstick that you look forward to wearing come December.

2, Do you have a fragrance that you dig out each Winter? Or perhaps a beloved scent that you stash away just to wear at parties and gatherings come the festive period. I love reading about fragrance but more so the story behind why the wearer treasures it so.

3, What about sharing your festive beauty wish list? As I very much doubt any of us will forward it to our nearest and dearest you can be as aspirational or as realistic as you wish.

4, As the year is drawing to an end why not share the beauty products that you have used the most and why?

5, In a similar and equally as helpful post, you could also share the beauty products you don't recommend and why.

6, With so many new beauty launches popping up over the last few weeks (and with more to come) why not share the must try items, I know I for one would appreciate posts of this type. Seriously can someone help me decide what to spend my Space.NK voucher on ha!

7, Gift guides - yes there are lots about but with no two being the same, the more the merrier!

8, What are the best festive nail polishes out there - new or simply staple shades we must try, I'm all ears...or should that be all nails.

9, As the Winter seems to be the season of long, warm baths what products will you be stocking up on? Bath salts, bath fizzers or a trusty bottle of bubble bath, inspire us.

10, Perhaps you skip the bubble bath and go straight for a head to toe pamper session in the run up to the party season, why not share your favourite tips, tricks and products?

11, Are there any must try festive candles that you can not recommend enough? A review, a guide or a mere suggestion may come in more than helpful for those stuck for home fragrance ideas.

12, What about your go to Winter skin care products, do you change up your routine and incorporate more intense products? You could also go a little further and share if you change hair care products too.

13, As Queen of chapped lips I know that I, and most likely many others are forever on the lookout for intense, hard working lip balms.

14, Are there any festive bath and body products, be it shower gels, lotions or potions share your favourites (at the moment I can't get enough of the I Love products).

15, With the season of parties nearly upon us, I can't think of a better time to share your tips and tricks to prolong make-up wear.

16, Perhaps not the most beauty related idea but one I'm sure many could benefit from - where is your go to online and physical shopping destinations to snag the best deals? I know that we all enjoy saving money!

17, What do you do to prevent your skin, hair and nails from drying out? Products, tips, tricks and general recommendations would make a great post.

18, If there is one time to wear glitter it has to be December doesn't it? What are your favourite glitter based products and how do you apply them?

19, Do you have any areas of your beauty routine that you neglect come the Winter months? For instance I'm not overly enthused about self tanning in the Winter despite being at my palest and I don't particularly enjoy visiting the hair dresser either.

20, This one may not be for everyone, as I know not everyone celebrates Christmas but if you do, do you have any particular products or make up looks, or even habits, that you reserve for Christmas Day/Eve?

I hope some of the above ideas are helpful and good luck to all of those who are taking part in Blogmas this year!
