39 Glitzy Makeup and Beauty Blogs with Creatively Cool Names

A key stumbling block to any new makeup or beauty blog’s flying start is its name.

Almost every blogger gets stuck for a frustratingly long time trying to come up with a creative name. It’s time consuming and zaps up a lot of your energy. The worst part is that after all that effort, you may not be any closer to a good name.

Depending on what you’ve been doing to try and find that elusive ideal name, it’s highly probable that you can make life a lot easier for yourself.

Some people sit on their desk and rack their head hoping to think of a cool name all by themselves. Now, unless you’ve got experience in naming or know a bit about the art of creating a brand, then this is not the best way to do it.

What you should do is look through as many good blog names as you can to pick out the ones you like. Ideally, they’re beauty focused, or blogs that are targeted at women. But they don’t have to be, as you can still pick up great naming techniques from non-related blogs.

For instance, take your time to go through these 39 top beauty blogs and notice how each of their names has been carefully composed to reflect the blog or blogger’s unique appeal:

Wish you’d thought of some of those names? Well, you can. Not those exact same ones, but there are plenty of other fantastic names that can easily be made up.

All you need to do is do some thinking to figure out what’s special about you or your blog’s content, and pick the most appealing element to incorporate into your blog’s name.

Love to run, go to the gym, workout, eat well, live healthy and want to start a blog to share your passion with other fitness fanatics? Well, the first thing you need to do is think of a good catchy name to help your new site attract and retain readers.

Until you try it, you may not realise how hard it is to come up with a creative blog name that sounds cool and unique. Most of the obvious options you can think of are probably already in use by another blogger who had the same idea, or the domain may not be available to be registered. The whole process can be extremely frustrating. Chances are, you’ve tried your luck and not found anything you like.

Since you’re reading this, it would seem you’ve taken a step in the right direction by doing a bit of research rather than continuing to stress yourself out.

As you can see, there are two main branding strategies – focus the name around your blog’s content or some aspect about yourself as the blogger.

After making this initial decision, find something that’s truly unique about you or your interests to distinguish your blog from all the others on the Web.

Ideally, you want to have an unusually interesting name that makes people take notice of it and want to take a look at what you’ve got to offer.
