My favourite Irish Beauty Bloggers new and old - 2012 style!

When I started blogging back in 2010, there weren't very many Irish blogs out there on the interwebs at all at all.  Beaut.ie was the only one I'd check out regularly and in the first year or so of me writing, the Irish blogging community was quite small.  We worked long and hard to build up our blogs to what they are today.  We didn't know anything about the blogger-PR relationship or how things worked but we all forged connections and relationships, learned things along the way and we've all hopefully made it a bit easier for new bloggers!

I have my tried and true favourite beauty blogs that I check every day and can't wait to see what they're blogging about!  As I made my list, I couldn't believe how many Irish bloggers are out there and I'm sure I've missed some out, so if I have, leave me a comment below and I'll be sure to sort it out!

2013 will be an interesting one in terms of being an Irish beauty blogger.  I'm a firm believer that there's room for everyone but it's important that we try to be different from each other.  If everyone gets the same product to review, the reader isn't going to read 20 reviews of the same product and it doesn't benefit the blogger or the brand in that respect.  So if I was only able to give one piece of advice to my fellow bloggers, it would be to try to have your own spin on things.  Find your own voice and the rest will come.

So Happy New Year my lovely Irish beauty bloggers and let's hear it for the girls in 2013!

  6. Hello me again! I have a request. I have followed a lot of these blogs because quite simply they are adorable and I love them. I'm just wondering does anyone know of a bloggger in the age bracket of 14-17?
    I'm 15 and just started a blog and I'd love to follow someone my own age. I think I'd proberly relate to these girls alot more and we would proberly be sharing the same experiences, roughly.
    Thank you and Have a happy new year xx
