So you know you want a beauty blog.  This is a great idea; we go over how you can make money as a beauty blogger here.

But do you want to consider having more of a niche to your blog?  What I mean by that is giving your blog a more specific point of view.  While you can have a general beauty blog, sometimes going more specific can help you get a devoted group of readers who can keep coming back.  You can then send out emails letting these readers know about new blog entries with an email marketing service like ConvertKit and make money this way.

Cruelty-Free Makeup Blog

The market for cruelty free-makeup is expected to grow by 6% in the next few years.  There are also a lot of online searches for it.  Basically, there are a lot of animal lovers out there who are willing to spend more money to make sure there makeup is cruelty free.  And by dedicated a blog just to cruelty free makeup, you could take advantage of this growing, passionate market.

Environmentally Friendly Beauty Blog

Similarly to how many people care about animals, a lot of people care about the environment.  Research shows customers are willing to spend more money on products if the brand promotes sustainability.  So if you have a blog about beauty products from environmentally conscious shoppers, you could achieve two things.  One, you could take advantage of an active, growing market.  And two, you could make affiliate sales from products that cost more money – which means higher profits for you.

Natural and Organic Cosmetics Blog

Dermocosmetics Blog
