Ah, Pinterest. Part productivity hindrance, part automated life coach. It’s the site where dreams go to be discovered, or dashed (see: Pinterest Fails). Love it or hate it, Pinterest has become a beauty mecca in its own right. The visual element lets users easily find, source, and share beauty tips and product information in less time than it takes to say “Sephora.”
Since the site can seem a bit daunting to the uninitiated, here are a few notable beauty boards to get you started…
The Beauty Department
Picking just one of their boards would be a gross injustice, considering the Beauty Department has everyone covered. With boards devoted to short and long hair, daytime and evening looks, and almost every other beauty-related topic one could think of, this page is a goldmine.
Hey Gorgeous on JustFab
Say what you want about their website, but JustFab’s Pinterest board is pretty bangin’. It’s loaded with helpful tips (and incredible editorial inspirations) like how to pick the best drugstore foundation or clean out the brush that is likely filled with more hair than your head (we all have one).
Curly Hair on NaturallyCurly.com
As an afro-haired lady, the internet has been a godsend when it comes to tips for working with curly hair. NaturallyCurly.com does a great job at providing ‘hairspiration’ (I hope that makes it to the dictionary) for ladies with kinky and curly hair. This specific board integrates styling tutorials, celebrity hairstyles, appropriate accessories, and photos from real, curly-haired women.
Beauty on Who What Wear
Who What Wear is a Los Angeles-based online magazine, with an eye for stylish detail. This clearly comes across on the beauty board, which focuses on runway and celeb styles with a high fashion aesthetic. This is only one of their many boards dedicated to fashion, so you won’t regret perusing the others.
