Where do you get your Beauty News from?

When it comes to Beauty News I am always interested in where people get their information from. Being a beauty blogger I absolutely love reading beauty sites, beauty pages, press releases and magazines.   Now being a blogger I realise that the information I am privy too is often before before it has gone to print in a magazine and over time, I do think blogs will become an even bigger and better source of information than anything in print form, because like the media which is now a rolling 24 hour source of information, magazines cannot print their article as quick as we can write them.

That said, I do still like to read and don't just rely upon blogs for information which came as a surprise to some of my friends who just assumed I relied upon blogs and press releases. So I thought I would share with you what I like to read and which platforms I use to find out bits of information. 


Beauty News

A simple Google - One of the terms that has caught my attention this week is Tan-touring, unable to ind anyone who had written a blog post about it, I found a simple explanation as to what it is in Grazia. Essentially it is Tan Contouring on your face and it is said to be the next big thing - move over Strobing!  I also buy magazines depending on their freebie offers which tend to lure me in.


Boots Health and Beauty Magazine - I absolutely love getting this free magazines from Boots, though it isn't quite as exciting as the Christmas Catalogue, it does usually have some great offers and competitions. If your local Boots never seem to have it in stock, then you can read it online right HERE. This months issue has a great arfticle on finding your 'Power Perfume' and mine is either t and Gabanna Light Blue or Marc Jacobs Decadence, neither of which I have tried but I am intrigued enough to hunt them down.

Dare from Superdrug - Again, another little freebie from Superdrug that usually has me writing a wishlist as long as my arm and if your local store doesn't have it, well there is an app for it whether you have an iPhone or Android or you can read it here. I have already added the Freedom Pro Blush Palette in Bronze and Baked, £6 to my wishlist because it looks just amazing.

Twitter - You might not realise it, but on Twitter there is a whole wealth of information and knowledge right there within your feed.  We all have our favourite people whom we follow to get our news and mine include Dave Lackie, who not only has the most amazing giveaways but he is also the Editor of BEAUTY the Guide Magazine which I absolutely love reading. Then we have Phil who is a fellow blogger and Beauty PR and he writes some amazing articles about products that I simply want and yearn to have. Nikki Taylor is also a wealth of knowledge and information alongside both Hayley and Jane, whom I read religiously.

My favourite websites - Escentual, FeelUnique and LookFantastic are three I go to the most and do a lot of clicking from Twitter on.  I love taking part in #AskEscentual even if I don't have a question to ask because there is a lot to be learnt and they also have a fabulous blog which I read religiously too. I love the Lookfantastic Beauty box and think it offers something different to other boxes that I subscribe too and having recently discovered the Outlet, my wishlist has grown a little bigger.  Feelunique has a section called Beauty All Access which I tend to go to first whenever I visit the site.  It has a great section called 'What's Hot, What's New' and there are more often than not some hidden gems to lust after.

Now that you know what I spend my spare time doing or where I get my information from, I would love to know where you gets yours from.

  6. This is such a great question ! For me is a little bit different because I am work as a beautician, I am constantly preparing, learning and attending workshops. To be honest I don' t read a lot of beauty blogs, just a few. I do love the printed fashion and beauty magazines, maybe I am just a little bit old fashion, but I really love to have a Vogue in my hands now and then.
