80 Fun, Fresh Topic Ideas for Your Makeup Business Beauty Blog! - QC Makeup Academy

These days, it’s not uncommon to see MUAs starting up beauty blogs (or vlogs) as part of their makeup career. It’s an easy and extremely effective way to build upon your professional website, expand your clientele, and bring your makeup business even more visibility! Not to mention, you’re provided with another platform to share your industry expertise with the world!

If you’re running your own beauty blog, or you’re thinking of starting one, it’s probably safe to say that you’re always on the lookout for content ideas. After all, one of the challenges of running a blog/vlog is to publish fresh content on a frequent basis.

You don’t want to always be posting the exact same topics as every other beauty blog out there. Otherwise, how can you expect your makeup business’s blog to stand out?

At first, coming up with content may be effortless. The longer you run your blog, though, and the more content you’ve already released, the trickier it can sometimes feel to come up with new, unique topics. This is where we come in.

Below are 80 fun ideas that we welcome you to use for your own beauty blog! ❤️️
