Beauty Blogger Sins (That I Commit Often)

In the admittedly large world of beauty blogging, there are some unwritten rules that many professional bloggers seem to go by. Unfortunately, I seem to commit a lot of them on a daily or weekly basis. I thought this might be a fun post to put up since I didn't have a ride to horseback riding today  and thought I'd do some blogging instead. Here are some of the things that beauty bloggers are "supposed" to do, yet I never manage to consistently do. Let me know what you think of this post! I was inspired by Ling's post similar to this that I read a couple months ago.

Beauty Blogger Unwritten Rules:
-Never go out with chipped nail polish
-Paint your nails perfectly and do gorgeous nail art
-Take impeccable care of hands and feet
-Moisturize every square inch of body after showering
-Eat healthy all the time
-Wear makeup every day
-Be prepared for all makeup disasters
-Have flawlessly lit product photos
-Take perfect selfies
-Purchase all makeup collections the day they launch
-Dress impeccably
-Take perfect care of your skin

I'm not very skilled at a lot of these. Hope you guys found this post amusing and maybe a bit true. I don't mean to offend anyone with these, so please don't take it the wrong way! Happy Tuesday everyone!

    I've sinned on every item.  I'd add:
    - moisturize cuticles and clean up excess nail polish after nail polish application and before photos
    - finish using up beauty products (especially HGs)
    - steam/iron wrinkles out of clothes

    Neat idea for a post :)

  2. I thought this post was the cutest! As a beauty blogger, I admit that I commit a lot of these crimes myself! Even the biggest beauty gurus do!!

  8. Which one do you commit that is not on the list? I'd love to hear it!
