I’m not going to lie beauty blogging can get expensive when you start, because well you need things to blog about right, but there are ways you can cut costs and today I’m going to share with you my tips:
Review products you already own
If you’re thinking about starting a beauty blog, chances are that you probably already own a lot of beauty products. A great place to start is by reviewing products that you already own and have used.
Borrow products from family and friends
Maybe you have a sister or best friend who has some great products, ask them if they’d mind you borrowing them to create a make up look. You can also ask them for their thoughts on the products.
Post about the latest beauty news
Write a post about the latest make up releases. There will be stock photos available for you to use and you don’t need to spend any money buying them. While you obviously can’t review them, you can still tell your readers about upcoming launches and your thoughts on them.
Sign up to test products
There is a websites like LatestFreeStuff that tell you how to get free products. These are a great way to get new products without spending any money.
Lots of bloggers host giveaways, often with bundles of products. So enter as many as you can, and if you’re lucky enough to win you’ll have a bunch of products to review.
Look out for make-up sales on blogs
Quite a few bloggers often sell make up they’ve either bought or received at great discounted prices. They often either not be used or only swatched for reviews. Keep your eye out for these as it’s a great way to save money on products especially high end ones.
Check magazines for freebies
Often magazines will offer free products when you buy the magazine. I’ve seen some great products over the years, so if you’re going to be buying magazines anyway, it’s a great way to get a free product.
