The best way to make money through blogging is to create a dedicated following that sign up for your newsletter and subsequently buy your products, your ebook, or click on your affiliate links.
With lifestyle blogging it's tough to get that sort of following. They may be interested in your beauty post, but leave when you write about money (or vice versa).
However, we live in the world of pinterest and google. So people can search and find (and love) single posts. So you want to create groupings of your topics. So write a 5-10 articles about makeup and interlink them all. So when someone finds one post they are naturally led to the rest of them.
To make money you really need to push your affiliate links and keep everything super relevant.
