Beauty Blogging is Fun and Fruitful

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

As a present or future cosmetology or esthetics professional, chances are you have an arsenal of unique talents and a strong creative mind. So in the Internet Age, how can you share what you have to offer and gain a wider fan base? The answer could lie in blogging!

Recently, I came across an entertaining blog called The Daily Nail that inspired me to think about what makes a blog fun to read. Though the author of The Daily Nail does not claim to be a professional nail artist or technician who has graduated nail technician school (just a nail polish addict), she has committed herself to creating 365 new nail designs in 365 days. So even if ninja nails or mustache nails aren’t your thing, you may be able to find a novel nail polish idea within these webpages.

Now do you feel inspired to start up a blog of your own? First, think about what you’re good at – executing great hairstyles, trying out new makeup looks, or just doing wacky beauty things. Creating your own blog could be the perfect way to put yourself out there, and even gain devoted clients and readers.

Need some tips for your own blog? Here are a few ideas to get started: (more…)

Champagne Taste … On a Beer Budget

Friday, May 9th, 2008

“I don’t own a single pair of Manolos. Can’t afford an ounce of Creme de la Mer.”
Sound familiar?

Champagne Taste … On a Beer Budget is a beauty blog that I’ve been loving recently.

The author describes herself as a “full time student, former esthetician and makeup artist living on a skinny salary …” And who can’t relate to that?

If you’re still in school or just starting your cosmetology career at a beauty school, you want to look fashionable yet still be able to pay rent for the month. Champagne Taste On a Beer Budget posts entries on makeup, clothes, skincare, hair and random musings that most young cosmetologists can relate to.

If you’re on a budget and looking for a fun place to spend time on the internet, check out Champagne Taste … On a Beer Budget .

Not just for the really, really, really ridiculously good-looking!

Welcome to the Blog! This is a place where beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.  We know, we know – how many cliche’s could we spout off on a beauty blog? But seriously, we truly have a vision of beauty that’s not cut and dry (no pun intended). It’s not about flawless skin or the perfect hairstyle. Besides, what is “flawless” skin? Who ever said laugh-lines were a bad thing?

We, at the Beauty Blog embrace honest beauty. We are real people, and we want to celebrate and discover beauty within our community. How will we do this? For fun of course! We will share our thoughts on beauty fads and faux paus, and use our expert (wink) opinions on the latest trends. We will discover and review new, unique, and maybe even slightly off-kilter beauty products. We will learn about beauty and fashion in other cultures around the world in addition to supporting cosmetology and wellness training in North America.

Dare to enter into a world of not-so-average beauty! Because, like mentioned, we love and crave beauty. And, if you do to – then this blog is especially for you! Check back to see what our beauty-crazed team comes up with this week!
