I've been doing my make up the same way since I was sixteen. Black eyeliner, loads of mascara, bronzer and a dash of pinky lip balm. It wasn't until I started blogging about fashion that I was introduced to the world of beauty blogs. Suddenly a whole new universe of possibilities for pretty was available at the click of a mouse!
A sexy cat eye. A tangerine pout. The perfect nail art tutorial. These are the things we seek when we visit our favorite beauty blogs. Like their sartorially-based counterparts, beauty blogs inspire us with new products, inspired pairings and trends worth trying.
Over here at IFB, yes, Independent Fashion Bloggers, we consider beauty blogs to be part of the family. Because let's be honest, even in your best outfit, who doesn't feel naked without a fresh face and swipe of lip color?
