The day of Beautyful Bloggers MeetUp is one of the days I look forward to the most during the entire year. A day spent with incredible girls, many of whom I call friends, talking, trying out new cosmetics, gossip, good food, great lectures and amazing energy. This year, Beautyful Bloggers MeetUp was organized for the third time in a row and as always, I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Thank you Nika (Beautyfull Blog) for all your efforts and for making it an amazing experience! Also big thanks to Peter Poles who made sure that the conference stayed on schedule and entertained us with his quick thinking and witty comebacks throughout the day.
Today, I want to show you a bit of what was happening throughout the day and talk about it. Tomorrow, I’ll already show you the gifts we brought back home and what I’ll be testing throughout the next couple of months.
Beautyful Bloggers MeetUp ~ morning
We were greeted at the conference by Melvita. They armed us with great and super useful goodie bags and also prepared breakfast for us.
After quick chit-chat and hugs, it was time for the first lecture of the day. Irena Deželak talked to us about our feelings, motives and goals for our blogs, as well as our personal responsibility toward our audience. I’ve hear lectures similar to this quite a few times now but they always get under my skin, so I found it to be the perfect start to the morning.
After a quick chit-chat with Tesa Jurjaševič about what it means to be a blogger and the new Vichy ambassador…
… we headed into a different hall for the second lecture of the day by Lena Gregorčič. Lena is a SEO expert and this was her second time giving lecture at BBMU conference. I think that she did a wonderful job and my notebook is filled with things I need to check, additional questions and topics that probably need my attention. View Full Post
About a week ago, I wrote a post about my favorite international YouTubers (*you can read it here*) that was very well received. So today, I’m continuing on this path with a post about my favorite Slovenian YouTube creators. These are girls that I know in real life so it would be a bit unjust (and also extremely difficult for me) to rank them best to last – they are all winners in my book. If I ever decide to venture into the world of YouTube, it will be because they inspire me so much
Tamara is a relaxed girl from Slovenian coast that always makes me laugh when I scrolling through her videos. She likes testing new things and sharing her opinions, she does unboxings and shows us her purchases and at the same time, she also tackled some fun challenges. She is relaxed and her true self in front of the camera – if you’re looking for someone with the perfect background and some who is always picture-perfect, then Tamara is not the one for you. But if you’re looking for some real honesty and energy, I’d highly recommend her to you.
Ajda is a person who does everything in her life extremely professionally. If you already follow her on any social media, you must know that. That professional attitude can also be felt in her YouTube channel which only holds a handful of videos, but every single one of them is worth your time. We can watch Ajda travel right now, but I’m hoping for some more beauty videos soon.
Nina is a MUA in real life so it’s no surprise that you’ll find a bunch of really good tricks and tips for perfect make-up in her videos. I love that she uses different brands of all prices ranges because that’s something I try to achieve on my blog. I really love watching Nina’s videos in the evening because of her soothing voice – a perfect ending to the day. If I ever need a MUA to do my make-up, Nina is definitely the first person I’ll turn to!
I sure can’t miss putting Gabi on this list. She used to post quite seldom, but recently she’s been really active so I’m happy to recommend her channel. I like that she covers different topics that may not be very conventional (plaque removal or SPF reviews). Her videos are well planned meaning you’ll get a ton of information in a short period of time. Since I don’t have the time to spend hours in front of my computer, I find her way of doing videos great.
Katja is the one that posts most frequently on her YouTube channel from all beauties mentioned above. You’ll find different tutorials on her channel, ranging from those for beginners to some more complex. Her videos are done without a voiceover which might trouble you a bit if you’re new to make-up but I don’t see it as a problem. Don’t forget to check out the challenges she does with her boyfriend!
Today, I’m in the mood for something different. This is a very popular topic in the beauty community – which Youtube beauty vloggers do we watch, who has the scoop on the newest items in the market, who is lying and who is telling the truth, whom do we trust and why. I don’t like repeating myself too often so here they are – my top 5 foreign beauty Youtubers. I’m also planning a post about my favorite Slovenian beauty Youtubers very soon. Hopefully, you’ll find someone new to enjoy in my top picks.
This beautiful redhead provides great make-up looks, especially ON POINT eyeshadows. She also provides I believe are honest reviews of trendy make-up products. You should also check out her Frugal Fridays series for some great tips to save money. Zabrena’s videos are never too long and rarely exceed 10 minutes, so she’s often my little make-up fix while I’m waiting for the pasta to cook.
Gothamista is nothing but serious when it comes to skincare. She had problems with skin in her youth and since then, she’s been on the hunt for the best (luxury and drugstore) skincare products. She’s the one I trust the most on reviews for new skincare and Korean beauty. Throw a bit of DIY in the skincare department in there and voila – you’ve got a channel you should definitely check out before investing in that 70€ moisturizer.
