10 Free Flatlay Stock Images

While I have been blogging I think 99% of my photos have been Flatlays. I have definitely improved since my first few photos and I think with flatlays practice really helps! Other than talking about my favourite topic Beauty I love to take photos and edit to use for my blog posts. In today's post, I thought I would put together a set of 10 images that you can save and use for your blog for FREE!

If you scroll right to the beginning of my Instagram you will see my fist few flatlays and they definitely weren't the best but looking through Pinterest and other people's blogs I learnt the best ways to create a flatlay that I love. I have actually written a post all about creating the perfect flatlay if you would like to check out some extra tips. 

Creating blog photos can be hard, especially now that winter is nearly here, The lighting has got to be right (I like using natural lighting) and using a camera can get very complicated so I wanted to make it easier for you if taking photos doesn't come too easily for you. 

If creating flatlays isn't your thing then for today's post I have put together 10 different flatlays featuring makeup and lifestyle images all for you to save and use for your own blogs all for free! The only thing I would ask for in return would be a little credit which would make me so happy. 

I know that whenever I'm reading a blog the first thing I notice is the picture as I love a really pretty image to start off a post. Below I have separated the images into categories Makeup, Lifestyle and other to make it easier for you to enjoy

Makeup Flatlays 

Makeup flatlays are probably my favourite types of ones to do because you can get as creative as possible. I like to add a lot of flowers and notebooks to my images to fill as much space and make them look as interesting as possible. Makeup flatlays can be used for a number of posts such as Favourites or Wish list blog posts.

Lifestyle Flatlays 

Lifestyle images are also a close favourite of mine to create. You can use so many different props and items to create your photos and the photos can be used for so many different blog posts, for example, blogging tips and blog resources posts.

Other Flatlays 

I wasn't really sure what to call this category of flatlays because they include all different items such as perfumes, heels and notebooks. I like to use these kinds for flatlays for posts such as my favourite blog posts of the year and organisation posts.

How to use these photos

To give you a little inspiration on how to use these images I've put together a few graphics that could be an idea on how to use them for your posts. To create these images I have used Canva which is a free editing website that I actually use on all of my blog posts to create my Pinterest graphics.
