Beauty & the Beat


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. 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!
