Recs please!

Thursday, October 15, 2009

Hi guys!

Can you rec some really good beauty blogs for me to check out please? Preferably ones with good swatches, reviews and FOTDs.

Chances are I may already follow some that are suggested but post away anyway - because I can't possibly be following them all!

Thank you!

Mine! haha. You can be my 60th follower hehe :D I try to do good reviews, my swatches have been a bit poo :( but Ive just got a new camera and Im just getting used to it.. so they should get better, Ive not done any FOTD's yet though... I just don't feel brave enough :( or have got the confidence, everytime I take a pic.. I just hate the way I look :( maybe Ill get brave enough in time though.

@ Jo - I'm following you now. I still get funny about FOTDs, it's def a confidence thing but once you do your first one it does get a lot easier. I need the practise anyway!

@ Shifa - Yep I know all about Karla ;-) Her swatches usually look diff on my skintone but I get the idea LOL Thank you x

Jo said...

Hehe... already am following you gorgeous. And yeah I do think its all down to confidence hun, plus I don't think my FOTD's are that interesting haha.. Im quite boring with my colours, always stick to the neutrals :( I guess thats another confidence thing. Im bloody full of confidence issues! Think Ive only just found that out haha.

Hey Vex

Please come see me at The Glam Shack http://theglamshack.blogspot.com/

When it's complete I will have thousands of swatches as well as a ton of FOTD.

FOTD's don't have to be loud to make an impact though. I quite like natural FOTDs - they're what I'll be wearing on a day to day basis to work anyway right? I'm no expert believe me, but I try and mess around with my e/s when I get a chance and see what I can come up with. Keep at it and make sure you post them!

My self confidence needs some serious boosting ..I'll get there one day. Hmmm ...
