There are three beauty sites you need to know about. While you all know my undying love for Pinterest, there are three other sites that are invaluable to me for inspiration and entertainment. They help me find new ideas and show me products I might not otherwise see.
Bellashoot is sort of like a mix of Pinterest and Facebook, specifically for Beauty. It’s a great place to look for inspiration, tutorials and more. It’s a very interactive site that’s easy to share content and save content. You can link to a video you found on youtube, or a picture from a blog or pinterest, and save it to your inspiration board. People can comment and share tips. You can follow users you like. You can even find all kinds of giveaways and sales on the site.
This site is constantly changing and evolving to suit your needs and they always welcome feedback on how you’d like the site to operate. They have great giveaways and do wonderful newsletters. It’s rare for me to sign up for a newsletter but I love this one!
Pretty in my Pocket
Pretty in my Pocket is not only a website, but it’s also an app that you can download for the Android or the iPhone. It lets you follow the Power Primpers or Makeup Mavens (like me!) so that when you’re out shopping at Sephora or other places, you can see what I think of products that I’ve reviewed, such as Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I’m one of their cruelty free bloggers, so that makes it easier if you want to only shop cruelty free products.
They also share great tips and trends on their blog. And of course, coupons and sales!
Now, I’m sure you’re thinking ‘another site to upload makeup looks?’ but Preen.Me isn’t your average site. First and foremost, it’s very user friendly compared to other sites that you can upload your makeup looks. Preen.Me is a great site for makeup artists and beauty addicts alike! Their interface is simple to use. It’s easy to search by ‘staff picks’ (which I really like), or by different types of looks from the Basics to Exotic. I greatly prefer this to Makeup Bee or anything else similar. It’s so much easier to sift through the great looks to find what you’re looking for here. Additionally they also have a great newsletter that goes out, which always has fantastic looks! I love the inspiration that I find here! Of course, you can upload and save your own looks, as well as save looks you’d like to try.
