Even though I’ve been a beauty editor for just over three years now (which, honestly, still makes me fairly green), I’m still surprised when people actually care and ask about what I’ve applied to my face, what I’ve slathered all over my body, or how I’ve styled my hair. I’m not going to pretend I have an influencer-level following (I definitely don’t), and up until fairly recently, I was still uncomfortable posting selfies on social media or even online for the stories I’d write. I love so many things about my job, but the pressure to plaster my face all over the internet, and the vulnerability that comes with that, is one on-duty aspect I’m still getting used to.
I’ve always been camera shy, but when it comes to reporting on and shouting about my favorite beauty products from the rooftops, I’m definitely not shy. And, for the record, I’m typically wearing at least a few of said products whenever I take a picture or post to Instagram. Yes, I may try hundreds of new beauty products each month, but I can honestly say my lineup of go-to items over the years has remained practically unchanged. You know that old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? Nothing could better embody my withstanding beauty wardrobe.
