You are…

 Obsessed with makeup, skincare, hair and nails. You probably have a stash of new makeup you haven’t had the chance to wear yet OR your weekly visits to Sephora are starting to interfere with your #RelationshipGoals. (ALSO –> You may or may not believe in Unicorns and the land of Zamunda!)

 You follow the top beauty gurus, makeup artists, and hairstylists on social media.

  Your friends all think that you’re super funny OR you at least post funny face selfies on Instagram that garner a few emojis. You’ll need lots of personality for GIG readers. They love to be entertained with wildly snarky sentences and correct subject-verb agreements.

  You are new to the blogging world and have a passion for writing about gorgeous shit. You have a decent social media footprint.

 You can bang out quick precise copy without a lot of editing. I promise you I’m busy. So you’ll need to be able to proofread your own work.

 Your laptop/phone is BAE. Meaning you respond to emails in a timely fashion and you don’t have a dial-up connection.

Your duties as a beauty writer…

 Pitching story ideas throughout the week.

 Writing 3-5 stories per month.

 Sourcing beauty news online and through assignments sent to you by me.

 Drafting posts in WordPress, sourcing appropriate images for blog posts.

 If you’re in the NYC area, you’ll also attend press previews and events and be able to turn in stories within 24-48 hrs.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in please complete the form below.

FYI: This is a “work for product, the E-word and maybe an occasional hundred dollar bill” type of position!

    Hey lady! When I saw this post I was so excited. It’s no secret that I am a beauty junkie and working in the beauty industry has really helped to fuel my passion. I have a decent following and I churn about two posts a week. Most people think that I have a lot of personality – sometimes to a fault. I can pretty much talk about anything beauty related because lord knows, I spend most of my time on beauty and lifestyle blogs. I’m one of those beauty junkies scouts all things beauty and fashion. I confess, some weekends I actually plan Sephora outings. You know it’s serious when some of the beauty advisors know you by name. Recently, I’ve also gotten into niche/independent beauty brands. Technically, I’m kind of a classic girl, but there are times when I will push the envelope. I love a good red lip but I’m not afraid to go with a bright purple (depending on what I’m wearing).

    When it comes to hair – girl I weave it to achieve it. I just joined Snapchat and Periscope and I’m still trying to master these two platforms – but I’m going to enlist the help of my millennial brother so that I can become an expert. I’m a conversational writer. By that I mean that I try to evoke as much feeling into my posts so that when I’m smiling, I envision my readers smiling with me. You just smiled right there – I know it. Let’s get back to business. I would really welcome the opportunity to work with your team. It would be a great opportunity to work with strong, confident women who say what they want and are unapologetic about it. This is who I am and from the few times that we have encountered each other, I am certain that that is who you are. Well, that about sums it up. Let me know what you think of my blog either way and I haven’t forgotten about the #thinkgorgeous post. I’m just struggling with the outfit selection because as I told you when we saw each other last it is a little snug – but watch me work it. Hope to hear from you soon.

    This would be a great opportunity for someone! I wish I were less shackled to my job and had more time to travel, play with makeup, and beauty blog. Here’s hoping you find someone awesome!

    Thanks for the opportunity, I am from the city of dreams so this so ideal, maybe my friend also can be of help also. She is in love with makeup! We are both sephora-junkies!….But I have more knowledge with the hair products so we are like ying and yang beauty verses makeup.
