Beauty & the Beat

About

margaret-francois-eic-beauty-and-the-beat-blog   I’m Margo, the fashion-and-beauty-loving creator of this site.

I started working as a freelance journalist covering beauty, style and entertainment in 2007. In 2012, I decided to create a space where I could share my personal musings and expertise with others… and Beauty & the Beat was born!

Beauty & The Beat is a one-stop-shop for the style-conscious glam connoisseurs who mark the world around them with the magnificence that is their fearless personal style and individual beauty. I’m not a professional makeup artist or licensed cosmetologist, but I love studying, testing and reviewing products and trying new beauty techniques. If you’re looking for honest product reviews, style and beauty tutorials, entertainment news or are craving a dose of glamspiration–this is the place for you!

In addition to managing B&B, I have a full-time job and work as a freelance writer. You’ve probably seen my work in publications such as Essence, Sister 2 Sister, Vibe Vixen, Jones, Coco + Creme, Honey, and Clutch. I was also the Beauty Director at JAYE magazine, and I’m a beauty contributor for the uber-fab Glamazons blog. (Yep, I’m Glamazon Margo!)

I’m a woman of many crafts, but writing is my passion. Please don’t be a stranger and check out some of my published stories, here.

Thanks for stopping by!
