Beauty blogs in 2018 are better than ever, and if you’ve been following a few since the blogging boom first happened some years back you probably already have a few favourite bloggers you keep up with already.

But beauty blogs are one of the best places to head to if you are on the hunt for your new holy grail makeup or skincare item, but you don’t want to have to do all of the trial and error yourself at great expense, so you can never have too many beauty blogs in your arsenal.

If you’d like to discover a few new favourites, read on for five of the best beauty blogs that you should be following in 2018!

BASE – Beauty And Style Edit

Abisoye Odugbesan is a fashion stylist who writes about beauty and style. Having worked in the fashion industry for almost ten years, Abi noted a distinct lack of inclusivity in beauty content and developed BASE to address the lack of content out there for different skin tones and hair types.

There are product reviews, interviews, and plenty of advice on there, plus posts about subjects such as the politics of skin bleaching, anti-pollution skincare, and the best highlighters for darker skin.


Let’s Talk Beauty

A blog dedicated to just beauty, Let’s Talk Beauty is a great place to head to if you like reading reviews. The gal behind the blog is Vicki, and she’s a whizz when it comes to shooting a flatlay.

All of the images are beautiful, and the reviews are unbiased and thorough. So many of the beauty items mentioned are really affordable, which makes it very accessible if you are fed up of reading rave reviews about products you just can’t quite bring yourself to splash out for!


Em Talks

Em Sheldon won the ‘Best Newcomer’ award in the 2012 Cosmopolitan blog awards, and since then has continued to grow her blog from strength to strength. While she covers everything from style to travel on her blog, she also has plenty to share on the topic of beauty, and if you’re a beauty fiend then you’ll love her posts about makeup.


The Anna Edit

The Anna Edit is the perfect blog for you if you like to read them for inspiration, but don’t want to get that feeling that you simply must run out and shop immediately after every single post.

Anna is all about the considered purchase, so you can be sure that she has put a lot of thought into what she shares with her readers. She has a capsule wardrobe, and unlike many beauty bloggers, her makeup collection is comparatively modest.

She offers great beauty advice, from posts on speeding up your beauty routine, to new beauty pieces she’s tried, to budget foundation recommendations.


The Lovecats Inc

Helen of the Lovecats Inc has one of the most beautifully laid out and readable blogs out there. Each post is full of beautiful photography and super well written. She covers beauty, lifestyle, travel, and baking, and she also has BEAUTIFUL cats.

One of the best things about this blog when it comes to beauty posts, is that Helen has revived the tradition of posting about her empties and repurchased products that were once on every beauty blog out there, and is a great way of getting an idea of which products are really worth considering!
