Meet the Local Beauty Bloggers - Glasgow
Glasgow’s beauty bloggers are some of the best in the UK (if I do say so myself), and they look at the cosmetics and skincare world from such varied perspectives. I (with my blog A Life With Frills am proud to be part of such a talented group, so I wanted to share my favourite Glasgow beauty bloggers with you.
Blogging is fast taking over from print magazines in terms of influencing beauty purchases. You can get product news immediately via blogs, and learn how the products work on real people just like you. If you want to know how to create a perfect smoky eye look, which spa to go to for a massage, or how to make your lipstick stay put longer, these Glasgow blogging gems are the perfect reads for you…
The Sunday Girl
Adrienne is like the Inspector Gadget of the beauty world. She knows about product releases even before the brands have even finished designing the labels! She does excellent daily beauty reports on The Sunday Girl, which cover everything she has found out that day about upcoming releases (often months in advance), and she also posts detailed product reviews of the newest products on the market.
Glasgow Beauty Blogger
If you are a Glasgow girl, Lori hooks you up with great reviews of local spas, salons and boutiques. Glasgow Beauty Blogger also writes posts on her own beauty experiences such as dying her hair with henna and filling in her brows. She’s the perfect local beauty read.
Beauty & the Boy
Yes, he’s a boy! He’s also a make-up artist and part-time drag queen too. If you want to get skincare and make-up tips from a male perspective, or from a professional perspective, Andrew’s your guy. Beauty & the Boy teaches you expert tips on application, and does product reviews of the latest make-up, hair product and skincare product releases to help you decide what are suitable buys for you.
Ruth is a real beauty addict, and Beauty H2T stands for Beauty Head To Toe. She covers everything from cosmetics, to hair care and exercise - the complete beauty experience. She does a lot of great health-related posts (tackling beauty from the inside out) such as great healthy juice recipes, her detox experiences and accounts of her exercise regimes. Ruth looks at a lot of areas of beauty not covered by other bloggers, which make it a great place to go if you are interested in more than just eyeshadow.
