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.

5th place: Zabrena

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.

4th place: Gothamista

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.

The title itself may suggest drama, but I promise you there will be no drama in this post. Throughout years of blogging, I’ve been noticing certain habits my fellow beauty bloggers have and I don’t – but perhaps I should? Let me know in the comments!

Morda naslov obeta dramo, vendar obljubim, da v tem zapisu drame ne boš našla. Gre za objavo o mojih opažanjih navad pri drugih lepotnih blogerkah, ki se jih sama ne držim – pa bi se jih morda morala? Vesela bom tvojega mnenja v komentarjih!

1. PHOTOS BEFORE USE! **** SLIKE PRED UPORABO!

On beauty blogs, I’ll often see photos of products that haven’t been touched along with a long, nice review of the products. I’m not suggesting that these reviews are fake in any way. I know that the bloggers take photos of the products once they buy or receive them and before they start using them. I admit that I don’t have the patience for that so my photos often look like the one above. Do you find this OK or should I take photos of products before I start using them?

Na lepotnih blogih pogosto naletim na slike izdelkov, ki so še popolnoma nedotaknjeni, zraven pa je na dolgo in široko zapisano mnenje o izdelku samem. Sploh ne namigujem na to, da so ocene lažne – izdelke gotovo poslikajo, ko jih kupijo ali prejmejo in preden jih začno uporabljati. Priznam, sama za kaj takega nimam potrpljena, zato moje slike pogosto izgledajo tako, kot tale zgoraj. Je to OK ali bi morala slikati izdelke, še preden pričnem z njihovo uporabo?

2. IF IT’S NOT ON INSTAGRAM, IT DIDN’T HAPPEN **** ČE NI NA INSTAGRAMU, SE NI ZGODILO

I’ll occasionally share snippets of my personal life on Instagram Stories – a good pizza, a glass of wine, a captured moment with my boy or my dirty kitchen. But mostly, I keep the content beauty related. I see that my fellow colleagues try and capture as many moments as possible through their phone cameras – cooking, shopping, work activities, driving, watching a football game and so forth. I love looking at these and I wonder – would you like it if I did the same and took you along with me every day?

S teboj na Instagramu v Insta Stories občasno delim kakšen utrinek iz svojega zasebnega življenja – dobro pico, kozarec vina, ujet trenutek z mojim sinčkom ali pa umazano kuhinjo. Večinoma pa so moja družbena omrežja še vedno posvečena lepotnim tematikam. Vidim, da kolegice vestno spremljajo svoj vsakdan skozi telefonsko kamero – kuhanje, nakupovanje, službene obveznosti, vožnjo, spremljanje nogometne tekme in še in še. Tudi sama jih z veseljem pogledam in se sprašujem – bi ti bilo všeč, če bi lahko tako pokukala tudi v moj vsakdan? View Full Post

SummerMBeauty

Blogerke imamo sicer kar pogosto možnost za druženje, vendar pa le malokrat to druženje razpotegnemo na celoten dan. To nam je po dolgem času spet uspelo na SummerMBeauty v vročem Mariboru. Nabral se nas je kar čeden šopek in preseneča me, da naslednji dan ni deževalo.

Dogodek so organizirale Ajda (blog Just Ajda), Sindi (blog Sindiana Jones) in Nina (Nina Novak blog). Dan so nam zapolnile s predavanji in predstavitvami znamk, delavnico ličenja Nee Make-up Milano in še marsičem, kar nam je polepšalo že tako čudovit sončen dan.

Poleg predavanj smo blogerke obiskale tudi lepotno tržnico z znamkami Yanumi, Ziaja, Avon, Biobaza, Perfect Body Salon in Keune. Kar nekaj znamk sem spoznala prvič, tako da se že veselim novih sodeloavnj. Sledil je odmor za težko pričakovano kosilo in pa ženski klepet, ki ga tokrat res ni manjkalo.
