How to Become a Beauty Writer
Know what you're talking about. Whether your experience is in hair, makeup or clothing, knowledge is important if you're going to present yourself as an expert in the field. Maybe you've worked in a department store as a makeup artist, or you've been a personal shopper, or you've worked as a hairstylist. Improve your understanding of beauty by studying the history of beauty in all its forms.
Begin a beauty blog. Starting a blog couldn't be easier with today's personal blog makers (see Resources). By writing your own beauty blog, you create writing samples while honing your craft. Show some versatility by offering information on new products, beauty tips and fashion, so that you have a variety of articles for potential publishers to read. Link your website to other beauty-related web-rings.
Build your writing clips. Add to your credits by submitting to websites that focus on beauty topics. Talk with the owner of your local spa or salon and offer a free, beauty-related newsletter for them to hand out to their clients.
