Back in the old days, you'd have to purchase certain magazines or books if you wanted to learn some makeup tips from the experts; magazines were a woman's source for the latest beauty products and tips on how to achieve the latest makeup trends. Fortunately, thanks to the internet, we can access sites that offer beauty advice for free! Beauty blogs have been emerging, offering a number of tutorials and tips for those into the beauty and lifestyle scene. Here are a couple of beauty bloggers you must check out:
24 year old Youtuber hailing from Lacock, United Kingdom, Zoe or Zoella shares videos of mostly her fashion and beauty hauls. With over 6 million subscribers on YouTube, it's no surprise that her first collection of bath products, Zoella Beauty, sold out within hours from release. Zoella has been awarded the Choice Web Star Award for Fashion/Beauty in the Teen Choice Awards 2014.
Her easy-to-follow video tutorials on YouTube are very helpful and fun. From lifestyle, to beauty, to fashion, Michelle's blog is something you wouldn't want to skip (I learned how to perfect the winged eyeliner from her and she does an amazing job with her makeup transformation art.) She also has an honorary degree from Ringling School of Art and Design.
Created by makeup artist Amy Nadine and hairstylist Kristin Ess, The Beauty Department offers complete step-by-step hair, makeup, and facials tutorials with photos so it wouldn't be hard to visualize. They also have reviews of beauty brands they recommend for their readers.
4. Robin Black
She's an A-list makeup artist, occasionally doing stints in New York Fashion Week, Allure, Elle, and Vogue. She also has this photo essay project called Beauty Is Boring, that features faces and looks she simply finds beautiful.
From makeup artist, Cara Brook, comes this beauty blog that has before-and-after makeovers so you get to see the difference quickly, and a couple of easy to do DIY-projects. She also has her own line of makeup which is currently on sale at her online shop. She was awarded Beauty Blogger of the Year by Allure in 2013 and is currently a beauty contributor for Allure.
All these ladies show how fun beauty is. They show how wanting to take care of yourself and makeup in itself is not a sign of vanity. Never shame a woman for wanting to wear makeup. If a woman chooses to wear makeup, let her be, because she's most likely doing it for herself and not for you.

Want to look like your favorite celebrity for Halloween or maybe just on a regular night out? No sweat! Here are a couple of famous celebrities' signature makeup looks and how you can easily recreate them.
1. Classic 50's Pin-up
This classic look is all about them red lips. To achieve this look made famous by Marilyn Monroe, Dita Von Teese, and countless other celebrities, you'll need:
2. 60's Feline Flick
If the 50's were about the lip, the 60's were all about the eyes, particularly winged liner. The cat-eye look became super popular with the help of icons like Brigitte Bardot and Twiggy and today it has also become popular again with people like Alexa Chung and Lana Del Rey rocking it. To get this you'll need:
Here is a tutorial if you're having trouble with achieving the perfect flick.
