Are you a beauty blogger?  Are you looking for some good affiliate programs to join where you can promote a brand you believe in and get paid for it?  If so, this post is for you.  Today I am going to list 10 beauty companies that I am an affiliate of.  All of these companies are affiliate friendly and the commission is good.  Some will even send you free samples to review on your blog if you ask them.  If you'd like to find out what ten companies you should be an affiliate of as a beauty blogger, please keep reading.

10 Affiliate Programs Every Beauty Blogger Needs to Join

I am very picky about the beauty affiliates I join.  I examine what the company is about, what they believe in, and most importantly, the ingredients in their products.  I am also not a fan of merchants that require a ridiculous amount information about me and my blog before they send me something to review.  I am promoting their products and I am driving business to their company with my reviews and pictures, so when a merchant asks for way too much private information, I decide that it is not going to be a good fit for me and I remove myself from the program.

With that said, the companies I am going to list for you are beauty companies that have passed all my requirements.  I like what their company is about, I like the ingredients in their products, and I like the way they treat their affiliates.  Some of these companies have provided me with samples to review, and I note this and provide a link to my review for all that have done this.

Many of the companies listed below are members of the giant affiliate program If you are unfamiliar with, which in my opinion is one of the best affiliate networks out there, please see my post, 5 Ways ShareASale Changed my Life.

If you do not wish to join ShareASale at this time, you can simply use my links to join any of the individual programs I list directly.  When you apply to these programs, you do not need to type anything in box where it asks how you plan to promote, just leave that part blank, it will not affect your chance of being accepted into the program.  I always leave the boxes blank.

A few of the companies listed are part of the Awin Affiliate Program.  This is also a very popular affiliate programThere is a one time fee of $5 to join Awin, but they give this right back to you in your first payout. 

After you have been emailed that the company has approved you into their affiliate program, simply email them back and ask if they provide their affiliates with samples or gift credit to review an item on your blog.  If you have a media kit, see my post - How To Create A Free Media Kit in 5 Minutes, if you want to learn how to easily make one - send it with your email.  Also send them some links of any other product reviews you have done if you have any.  Don't worry if you don't have any yet, some companies will still be happy to provide you with a sample even if this is your first time.

I am very loyal to companies that have treated me well, and if I need a product or a gift, I will try to buy it from my affiliate companies first if I can.  You, and any friends and family, may purchase products using your own links.  Some affiliate programs, such as Amazon, do not allow you or family/friends to use your own links when purchasing, but all the merchants in the program do allow it, and this is a huge plus for me!  This means that you will automatically earn cash back for any purchase you make from your ShareASale merchants.  I promote my affiliate companies through both my product reviews, which you can view under my page, Product Reviews, and through my page, Coupon Codes.  Both of these pages are always located at the top of my site.  I also promote them on my other social media platforms, especially Instagram.  

Let's get into the ten affiliate programs every beauty blogger needs to be a part of:

Please note that there is now more than ten on this list as I have updated this post and added a few since it was written.

Cleopatra's Choice 
This company sells high quality luxury skincare products at affordable prices.  You get 3 FREE samples with every single order.  My two favorite products are from their goPure line.  They are the goPure Retinol Facial Serum (with high active concentration of Retinol and the goPure "Youth Glow" Eye Gel, both of which are in the picture below.  Two other best sellers are their goPure Vitamin C Serium With Professional Strength Hyaluronic Acid  and their goPure Retinol Facial Cream.  They sent me a 25% off coupon to use on my first order as a new affiliate.

This company is a beauty subscription box company.  Their beauty boxes are huge and come with tons of great products, including full sizes of very popular brands like ColourPop Cosmetics.  I was sent a box to review almost immediately after signing up to become an affiliate.  You can view my review of the June and July 2017 GlossyBoxes here: GlossyBox Subscription Box Review June 2017 With Free Product Coupons and GlossyBox Subscription Box Review July 2017 Plus Coupon.  You can apply to be an affiliate with them in the AWIN Affiliate Network.

Ecocentric Mom
They offer new affiliates a complimentary box in exchange for a review.  You can view my full review of them here:  Ecocentric Mom Will Slay Your Baby Shower Gifts.

Most people are familiar with Julep nail polish as it is very high quality.  They offer affiliates free products seasonally, just email them to be put on the list if they aren't doing it at the moment.  This is a very popular beauty affiliate program naturally.

Sally Beauty 
Most of you know Sally Beauty, they sell just about everything you can need for your hair and face. A few products I buy from them over and over are:  Palladio Herbal Baked Blush in Rosey  (My all time favorite blush I use almost every day) ; Palladio Herbal Precision Eye Liner in White Out  (The best white eyeliner I have found that contains no wax that causes allergies.  See my post, Wax Free Lip Product List to read about cosmetic wax allergies.  I use it in my waterline to brighten my eyes.); Intense Treatment Hair Masque from True by Made Beautiful.

Pixi Beauty
(The owner of this company has the same name as I do - Petra! )
