✨A BIT ABOUT ME✨
Indulge me for a sec - a few new faces around here so I thought I'd share a bit about who I am (also because I'm nosey and love it when other people do it!)
💄 My name's Brittany, I'm 23 and I'm a beauty journalist and editor. I studied journalism at university and interned and freelanced at a lot of places including Fashion Journal, @onyamag, The Australian, @stylizen and @thetrendspotter before landing a job at Mamamia just after graduating.
💄I worked at @mamamiaaus and @theglowau for three years covering beauty, style and entertainment. I wrote a lot of words and tried even more beauty products! It was the best and I worked with some incredible women. I finished up in April.
💄I now work in marketing and copywriting by day, and beauty writing by night. It wasn't where I thought my career path would go but I bloody love it. Doing something not beauty related for full-time work has given me so many new (and complementary!) skills but also completely reignited my passion for beauty. Now I'm able to work on my own beauty projects, including my It's A Beauty! Newsletter. I've got some other exciting stuff in the works too. (Stay tuned!)
💄I'm passionate about doing beauty differently. I hope to deliver more than just pretty pictures (although those are great too!) I want to be entertaining and helpful about which products are genuinely worth your hard-earned money. I also love the cultural and social history of beauty and fashion. It's so influential and captures the mood of a certain period so perfectly. I collect old fashion mags for this reason.
💄I'm English but don't drink tea. Just the green kind. (Travesty, I know!) However I've lived in Australia for 10 years and consider it my home too.
💄I'm incredibly uncoordinated and have no sense of direction.
💄Unfortunately this is not my apartment balcony with a view of the Eiffel Tower (nor do I live in Paris. Otherwise I'd have you all over for champagne immediately). It was taken when I was visiting family friends there in April. I ate my weight in cheese, baguette and Creme Brulees and don't regret a single bite 😜
Over to you! Tell me something about yourself in the comments 💫
