Fifteen Thoughts A Beauty Blogger Has Daily

Chloe Brewer

I’m someone who eats, sleeps and breathes the beauty industry. That sounds extreme, like I have some sort of addiction – and I guess I do, if buying eyeshadow palettes counts?! But my two-pronged business is all about beauty: Lady Writes is my space on the internet for all things beauty, whether it’s a product review or a piece of content designed to help give you guys the best recommendations, skin type analysis and much more. Then my freelance content creation business is all about beauty social media, marketing and the like. So when I say that I eat, sleep and breathe beauty…I really do. It’s my passion, my hobby, my biggest interest and my job. So as bad as it initially sounds, don’t judge me too negatively, kay?! And you know what? I wouldn’t change it for the world.

That said, as someone who’s consumed by the latest news, products and innovations, I can honestly say that having a passion that transitioned into a job has been the most amazing experiences and I’m so grateful to do something I adore. But like any job, it’s not without it’s pitfalls and I’ve learned a lot along the way. So I’m writing this post as a bit of fun, that I hope all beauty bloggers will be able to relate to – whether you blog ‘full time’ or just for fun, if you’re in the industry then I’m pretty sure you’ll have experienced the vast majority of these thoughts on the regular…


“Is it acceptable to wear a full-glam smokey eye look with bold lip and magazine quality make up just to nip to the shop for a pint of milk or bag of sugar? It’s okay right, no-one will notice…”(they do)


While swatching make up in a shop “I have the money to buy one of these shades…screw it, I’m going to take all 27. I can live on baked beans until next month.”


“I don’t need another nude palette. I don’t need another nude palette. I don’t need another nude palette.” Buys another nude palette.


“Harry Potter had a wand. I have a Morphe/Sigma/Real Techniques brush and it’s pretty much the same thing.”


“Price of eyeshadow palette: £25. Price of the Deluxe Sampler Box including Palette and many items I already have and/or don’t want: £95…I’ll take the Deluxe Box.”


“I am on a spending ban but technically if I buy this to review on my blog then it doesn’t count does it?”

Chloe Brewer AKA Lady Writes


“193 lipsticks isn’t excessive really.”


“The pain of buying a new piece of make up only to have it sitting around for a week or two so you can photograph it for the blog/Instagram before you use it is like having your heart broken a little bit every day until it’s done.”


“Why is creating the perfect winged eyeliner more difficult that than squeezing a fridge through the eye of a needle?”


“If I tell my partner that I got this make up order as PR then he’ll never know…mwah-ha-ha”


“If Kylie Jenner or X said I need this then I must actually need it… (I don’t)


“I will declutter my make up collection and be ruthless with binning old products/giving away things I never use…” (Puts one product in the bin and keeps the rest, unable to part with it)


“A girl can never have too many nude lipsticks because no two nudes are ever the same.”


Partner: “Is that new lipstick shade?” Me: “No, I’ve had this for ages…” (I brought it yesterday)


New gorgeous looking beauty release means I run to buy it as soon as it drops “But obviously it’s too pretty to use so I don’t open it for months as I’m almost scared to ruin it’s beauty…”


…Please tell me I’m not alone?

    Haha, I love posts like these! I’m not really into beauty THAT much so I never have any of these thoughts. But I’m sure most bloggers have the same sort of thoughts daily! Also, I LOVE your shoes in that top photo!

    I’m thinking I must be a beauty blogger imposter because I haven’t had any of those thoughts lol Maybe the closest is having items, namely skincare products, cluttering my bedroom till I’ve taken photos as I won’t use them till I’ve taken all the pics I need! 😀

    100 agree! I’ve just made an order with cult and fabled purely for blog purposes and therefore totally justified!

    I have so many beautiful beauty products that I CAN’T open because they’re beautiful! It’s like notebooks and other stationery. I buy them and then can’t use them because that would spoil them.
