I’ve been reading a lot of beauty blogs lately because I am so into makeup, that’s why I’m trying hard not to turn this list into a “Your favorite 5 beauty blogs” you know? Here goes:
Softly Sometimes – is my favorite local beauty blogger! It’s not the things Carina buys and the pretty pictures and beautiful looks that come with it (it is, though. haha!) but it’s the way she really goes into a product and blogs about her experience with it. It’s not just your cookie cutter beauty blog review site or a blog full of looks but it’s the way she describes each and every product like it matters. I skip a lot of posts of my makeup blog corner in Feedly but I always take time to read Softly.
Minimally Minimal – Andrew Kim is probably one of my favorite design gurus online. His blog Minimally Minimal is literally a breath of fresh air, with minimal design and superb photos with descriptive writing. When I found out about this blog I spent a day just backtracking posts and reading most of them. I couldn’t believe I haven’t been reading this blog since it started and how influential Andrew is to the industry right now.
Robbie Off Duty – Saying he’s my crush is kind of an understatement. I’ve always been more fascinated with men’s fashion blog more than women’s. Not just because I’m a girl (which I bet probably contributes to most of it as well) but Robbie is really good and I love the way he writes-simple, and straight from the heart. When he makes it even bigger than now I’ll be proud to say I’ve been reading his blog since day one, when he was just getting to know the business. I love his posts and fashion photos because despite being simple it’s classy, it’s clean, it’s straightfoward. It’s weird how he got into blogging because it’s totally for him.
evacuatewithstyle – I value Amy’s opinion a lot when it comes to K-drama and K-pop (basically Korean pop culture in general). It’s very honest (sometimes too honest) which is quite rare in the K-industry. I also like her fashion posts, and Korean fashion posts but sadly she does not post as often as before. It’s a little frustrating because she keeps a level head with most of her reviews and interests and won’t think twice when she needs to point out the truth.
Spell Saab – I’ve been a reader of Saab’s blog ever since I started blogging myself, I think about 10 years ago or so. I feel like I’ve grown up with her. It’s weird because like you’ve been following this person’s life for quite a while that it’s one-sided? I’ve been through her different domain changes, different boyfriends, life ups and downs, it’s pretty crazy. I just haven’t stopped reading.
There you go, my favorite 5 blogs! I wish I would include the others but the hardest part was narrowing it to five because I still have quite a few blogs I wanted to talk about. Rules are rules, so there it was.
