Today I challenged myself to come up with as many blog post ideas about beauty as I could in 30 minutes, so I could give back to the beauty blogger community! I'm not a huge fan of giving away too much personal info online, so I recommend an 80/20 split between informative posts that help your reader solve a problem and fewer of the “get to know me” posts. With that in mind, here's a huge list of blog post ideas beauty addicts will love!

Need Help Setting Up Your Blog?
If you haven't yet started a beauty blog and would like to, the only blogging course I recommend is Elite Blog Academy.
- The bad news: It's very difficult to get into the class, because the cart is only open for registration one week out of the year.
- The good news: You haven't missed the registration for 2018! The cart opens 03.05.18 and stays open until 03.09.18. I'm not going to try to sell you on the class, I'll just let you read the success stories from fellow EBA graduates who are all currently successful bloggers. Many are making a 6-figure income! Read their success stories here: Elite Blog Academy Success Stories
If you miss the 2018 registration and want to get on the waitlist for 2019, you can do that here: EBA Waitlist
Now…on to the post ideas!
Blog Post Ideas for Beauty Bloggers
Take a quick peek around Pinterest, and you'll probably notice beauty pins everywhere. Since the site is so visual, it makes sense that girls head there to find the latest makeup techniques, beauty trends, and hair tutorials. But what should you pin? Here's a list of topics you can write about next time you're low on ideas.
Makeup dupes (drugstore makeup products that mimic premium brands) are always popular.
