Now that everyone is in the age of applications and digital media, it’s time for a list of apps from your top beauty mag publishers! I’ve always been a paper person, I love to have a magazine to look at in the evenings or at the beach but some of you have made the complete digital switch! For those of you that use your smart phone for everything, this is for you!

The great thing about using magazine apps is you get an easy to navigate version of your favorite publications. Some of them may not offer everything and in my opinion apps will never replace  the things I enjoy about printed media.

With that in mind, it can’t hurt to have a digital version of your favorite magazine in your back pocket! Take advantage of being able to enter contests, read about the latest products & trends, and more on your phone or tablet!

Most digital mags offer limited media for free or subscriptions and single issues for a small price. In my opinion… this is so much better than being stuck with an expensive magazine subscription!
