So todays post is a little late apologies, i’ve been super busy.
So lately theres been a lot of videos on youtube using the word ‘beauty guru’ And not in a good way. Instead it’s a word used to slate beauty bloggers / vloggers for being what they like to call, a typical beauty guru. Basically they’re saying, oh they just review any product they’re given and it’s a lie, not their honest opinion. Or, oh they’re so fake, misleading and lying to others for their own need of free things. Can we just get one thing out the way, you sound like a bully! That word just annoys me so much!
This post may not go down well with everyone, to be honest i don’t care. If sticking up for someone and what i believe in is wrong then i don’t have any faith in humanity. I will become a chicken and live a free range life, haha.
I just don’t understand why there’s so much bitchiness. The role of a beauty blogger/ blogger is that they talk about the makeup, beauty products they’re using, or any products for that matter. But just because they say every product they use is amazing that doesn’t mean they’re lying. How do you know what they like and don’t like? I understand that people sometimes think bloggers are all about the free stuff but that’s not always the case. I will admit sometimes it is, but in life there’s always people who take advantage, we can’t change that by ranting and raging and creating stereotypes.
Since i first started blogging i have worked along with many brands, using their products on my blog. But i wouldn’t do it if i didn’t like the brand or it’s not even relevant to my content. if i had a proposition from a brand i didn’t like the sound of or i thought i wouldn’t personally use it then i will say no. And if you read my blog religiously then you already know i’m honest and straight to the point. I enjoy doing collaborations with brands i love.
I guess what i’m basically trying to say is don’t be too quick to judge, leave them be. People have different views on products and just because they like them all it doesn’t mean they’re lying. And getting straight to the point, if they are then that’s their problem. If you think someones review doesn’t seem genuine then just don’t watch/ read it. But don’t become a bully. That’s just not nice and makes you even worse. There’s getting your opinion across and then there is being malicious.
Again, I’m not saying that there aren’t people who do this but come on girls, let’s just leave them to it, not slate them. Am i right?! Yes, some people do blogging just for free things but it won’t last long. A blogger is made successful by their wonderful readers. If they don’t get none, brands won’t want to work with them.
Just because some bloggers do it for the free things, it doesn’t mean we all do. We don’t deserve to be stereotyped and we certainly don’t deserve the judgements.
Please comment telling me your opinions! I need to know i’m not the only one!
