A List Of The Main Essentials For Every Blogger | Beauty Blogger | Blogging Essentials | Fashion Blogger | How To Start A Blog

Blog Journal/Planner

Useful for jotting down blog post ideas and for creating a schedule. Sometimes ideas come to your mind spontaneously therefore the planner can be used to take notes of them as they come. Journals are also useful for when brainstorming blog topics.

DSLR / phone camera

It is best if you use a professional DSLR  camera for taking your blog pictures however, if you plan on using using your phone, ensure that it has a camera of at least 10 Megapixels.. Taking high quality photographs is equally important as producing quality content. For instance, if you are a fashion blogger you may hire a photographer if you do not have someone to take the shots for you.

Phone / Computer Applications for editing photos

Most people already have a basic photo editing software downloaded on their phones. These apps can be used to edit your blog pictures and there are lots of them available for free. Alternatively you may use professional computer software applications like Photoshop to do your bulk editing. These are more advanced but effective once you learn how to use it properly.

Dictionary

An English dictionary is very handy when it comes to your blog posts because you want to be certain that you are using proper spelling and grammar. Having too many grammatical errors look tardy and unprofessional. If English is not your first language you should hire a proof reader to check your content.

Photo props

When taking photographs of small items such as beauty products, you need props to enhance the final output of  your photos. Props such as fabric, candles, magazines, books and other miscellaneous item

Lighting equipment

Proper lighting equipment is highly recommended for shooting your subject. It may not always be convenient to capture in natural lighting so having a light system will allow you to shoot any time of day.

An Email List

Every Blogger should aim to collect the email addresses of their readers. As your list grows bigger you can eventually turn your readers into customers. An email list is very important especially if you decide in the future to turn your blog into a business.

  • Trying out these Reusable Medical Grade Silicone Patches from @siobeauty in hope that they get rid of these fine lines “wrinkles” from my face ☺️ I’ve got the Eye & Smile Lift as well as the Browlift. Best part is that each patch is reusable up to 15 times 😁

  • So happy to have received @coverfx Power Play Foundation in the shade N100 and their Perfect Setting Powder complimentary @influenster. I used these products on my face and I was in awe at how beautiful it looked and lasted. My face remained matte just like I like it, even after sweating profusely 😅 it’s light-weight, full-coverage, long lasting and a little bit of product goes a long way! Can’t wait to post the review on my blog 😁 #soon Beautiful product and there are 40 shades to choose from! Slide left to see the results .

  • So I’ve been using the Dark Garden Collection from @aloette for the past few days now and I’m thrilled. 😁 Of course they are all aloe vera infused with a very mild fragrance. .
.

I love to use the Body Incense Dry Hand & Body Lotion all over my body after showering especially on evenings after a long day of work.  It’s not as heavy as a lotion but gives that smooth feeling that somehow disappears into the skin  but giving it a moisturized look and feel 🤷🏽‍♀️ Perfect product for pampering  yourself in the comfort of your home. .
.
.
As for the body wash it’s exactly how I love mine, thick with lots of lather. .
.
.
The lotion also has a thick consistency and doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky but rather buttery smooth. #sponsored #stepintodarkgarden @aloette #aloette #aloettecosmetics #beautyproducts #bodycare #bodylotion #review #reviews #reviewblogger #ad #spor #aloevera #aloe #candles #spaday #spa #spas #pampering #pamperingmyself #pamperingday #bodylotion #showergel #handlotion #bodyoil #skincareproducts #beautyproduct #beautyproducts #bbloggers
