If you’re a fashion and makeup addict like I am, then you simply HAVE to check out these beauty and makeup Tumblr blogs. Tumblr is home to many different things, from fandoms to photography, but there is a great appreciation for these glamorous gurus. They have been huge helps and inspirations to me, and I feel anyone who wants a bit more sparkle in their Tumblr experience should follow these beauty and makeup Tumblr blogs!
1. Drugstore Princess
This is my absolute FAVORITE out of all the beauty and makeup Tumblr blogs. I’ve been following her for ages now, and I’m quite certain I’ve read through every post she’s ever made. She answers so many questions regarding not just makeup itself, but application, the tools, and even where to find duplicates for more expensive brands. This blog is like my online beauty bible! If you have a makeup question, chances are Drugstore Princess has answered it already!
Yet another great blog for makeup tips and tricks, although this one is more for your odd little tidbits here and there, as well as makeup reviews, articles on current trends, and some how-tos. This blog has taught me so much, just from the little tips that are posted occasionally!
3. A Shoe a Day
Who doesn’t love shoes? There’s nothing better than scrolling down my dashboard and stumbling across a gorgeous pair of shoes that suits my style perfectly. The shoes on A Shoe a Day are absolutely amazing! My only regret in following this blog is that I’ve become acutely aware of the fact that I will never have enough money to take care of my shoe addiction.
4. Fashion in History
This blog does exactly what it says in the title and posts fashion throughout history. I’ve been in awe of this blog from the moment I stumbled onto it, and I’ve spent way too much time just scrolling through the pages wishing I could go back in time to wear these fashions. There’s also a description with each piece, so you can get some background into the design and inspiration for it, and even the structure of the dress, in case you’d be interested in having some of these outfits recreated.
5. The Makeup Bag
If you’re just interested in having beautiful pictures of makeup on your dash for inspiration or your own enjoyment, then this is the blog for you. I know I love seeing looks on my dashboard, because then I’ll bookmark them and use them to create my own looks when I go out. Tumblr is one of the best places for finding unique makeup looks, and this is a great blog for that!
6. Show Me Makeup
I also love outrageous makeup looks. Animal print eyeshadow or painted on scales are hugely fascinating to me, so finding Show Me Makeup was like striking the mother lode. Of course, these looks aren’t practical, but it’s always good to get ideas for costumes or if you ever have to dress up! And don’t worry, these looks are very expertly applied.
7. Makeup Madness
A great tutorial blog! These looks are practical and easy to do, but still a bit edgy and fun. The blogger is a very talented young woman when it comes to makeup! I have tons of her looks saved onto my computer to try later when I have the occasion.
Makeup and beauty is just so much fun, isn’t it? Tumblr happens to be my inspiration, but what’s yours? Do you have anything, or anyone, that inspires you in your makeup or beauty routine?
