About Us

Have you reached your wit’s end trying to stop breakouts from taking over your face? Whether you’re struggling to discover the best skincare routine to fight to make your combination skin healthy or if you’re looking for the best concealer that’ll fix those dark circles that won’t go away, Glamour ‘n Glow has come to the rescue!

With the millions of different skincare and makeup products on the market, we know that feeling that’s too familiar when you start shopping around. You know, the one where your head starts spinning because you can’t figure out what product is actually going to help you?

First, you have to find a product that’s going to do what it claims it’s going to do on the package. Looking for a full coverage foundation? There are so many foundations out there that claim to be full coverage, only to leave you questioning if you have to use half the bottle to get any sort of coverage. Plus, you have to find something that’s in your price range, matches your skin tone, and pairs well with your skin type. It’s even more tricky if you want to avoid purchasing any products that contain animal by-products or from companies that test on animals.

That’s why we’re here to help you. Basically, our team at Glamour ‘n Glow is here to be your beauty fairies, so you never have to stress about looking your best again. We know everything there is to know about the best skincare tips, the best products, and how to transform your current makeup routine from drab to fab.

Plus, we’re here to cater to people of all different budgets. You won’t find us only recommending products that cost half of your last paycheck. We’re here to give you the best (and info on the worst) beauty products on the market. Our biggest goal here at Glamour ‘n Glow is to help you feel and look your best, no matter what your skin is currently making you feel.

That’s why we offer in-depth guides into the best beauty tips on the market. Also, we’ll share with you what to do (and what not to do) for certain skin types. We’re here to make your beauty routine less confusing and frustrating!

Our Beauty Mission

Here at Glamour ‘n Glow, our team of experienced beauty gurus is here to provide you with all of the best information you need to know. We’re here to help you stay on top of the latest trends in the industry and the hottest releases! Also, we’ll provide extensive guides on how to make your makeup sweat-proof and how to cover even the most stubborn of breakouts.

What We Offer

We see beauty in everything, and we want to take it to the next level. With how saturated the beauty market is, we’re here to help save you money on products that don’t live up to the hype! Whether you’re looking for personalized beauty tips, to keep yourself updated on the latest hacks, or see if the latest releases are worth it, we’ve got all you need here!

How this works

For every single makeup product, skincare product, and tool we test, we have a thorough and extensive review process that the product has to go through. As an example, when we’re reviewing a makeup sponge, we aren’t writing our reviews based on what the majority of other customers are saying about their makeup sponge. Instead, we’re going to use the makeup sponge for putting on moisturizer, foundation, concealer, and using it to set our makeup. Plus, we’re going to wash it several times and test out how it’s actually responding to usage.

Here at Glamour ‘n Glow, we don’t mess around with our beauty products. We’re here to make sure all of our readers feel beautiful and confident in their makeup journies. This means that we’re dedicated to only recommending products that are actually useful, easy to use, and safe for your skin!

We have a review process that includes several steps to ensure we’re getting an idea of every aspect of the product. Here’s how we go about approaching every review we create:

  1. A makeup or beauty product that’s introduced into the market grabs our attention. So, we’ll purchase it with our own money for our review. Keep in mind, we don’t ever accept free or deeply discounted products from companies to keep all of the reviews we write unbiased and fair.
  2. We’ll test the makeup or beauty product out extensively. If it’s a skincare product, we’ll try it out on different skin types to see how the product helps different skin types. Also, we’ll give each product a few months to see if it helps (or hurts) the skin that it’s being tested out on.
  3. The person that’s trying out the product will be the person who maintains a daily log. In the daily log they keep, they’ll write down what they’re experiencing with the product they’re testing out. Also, they’ll write down their opinions and thoughts on the item they’re reviewing.
  4. The person who is testing out the product is the same person who writes the review. This is so our readers can get a solid understanding of the reviewer’s experience with the product. If the writer needs any help while writing their review, they can reach out to our editorial team.
  5. When questions arise within the beauty community, we’ll keep our article updated with answers to these questions!

Lastly, we want you to know how absolutely amazing you are! We know how hard you work every day, and sometimes, it can be hard to completely fall in love with your skin the way it is. Don’t worry, we’re here to help you fall in love with yourself! We hope you’ll discover your passion for art, self-expression, and creativity with us at Glamour ‘n Glow. We’re so happy to be with you while you learn how to express yourself through beauty! Thank you for being with us.

Our Experts & Gurus

Stephanie Jensen – Certified Makeup Artist

Stephanie Jensen is a makeup and beauty fanatic. She worked at Sephora back in college, but her love for beauty never stopped. She became obsessed with makeup the first time she saw her mom wear red lipstick! Her makeup, skincare, and fragrance collection is offensively growing to large proportions. So much so to where she has to keep extra products at her boyfriend’s apartment. When she’s not putting on her beat or playing around with new products, she’s out shopping for new beauty products!

What beauty advice do you hope to share with the world? 

You should focus more on skincare! So many beauty YouTubers pull off flawless looks because they make their skincare routine their #1 priority. It’s easy to get lost in the glitz and glam of all of the cool new beauty launches coming out. But, investing in your skin is something you’ll never regret!

What is your holy grail foundation? 

The Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation!

What’s the most disappointing beauty product you’ve ever tried? 

The MAC Studio Eye Glosses were the worst thing ever released, in my opinion. I don’t know how anyone could feel comfortable wearing them. They were so thick on your lids and the application didn’t look good at all!

What’s one beauty hack you would recommend to anyone? 

If you’ve never found a way to cure your dry lips, use eye cream! A regular part of my nightly beauty routine is putting eye cream on my lips, like a lip mask. My lips are soft, smooth, and I don’t have any signs of aging around my mouth. It works wonders!

Phoebe Berkley – Certified Makeup Artist

Phoebe is our other certified MUA, with years of experience! She’s here to help make the entire world of beauty less intimidating for everyone. She has years of experience and has worked with thousands of clients, so she really knows nearly everything there is to know about makeup!

What beauty advice do you hope to share with the world?
I want everyone to know that makeup and beauty is for everyone, no matter your skill level. It can be intimidating to immerse yourself in makeup if you’ve never explored the many different products available. I hope our team at Glamour N’ Glow can give you some inspiration to dive deeper into the amazing world that is Makeup and Beauty.

What is your holy grail foundation?
My Holy Grail Foundation is the Face & Body Foundation from M.A.C. Cosmetics. It’s super lightweight, buildable, and lasts all day long!

What’s the most disappointing beauty product you’ve ever tried?
I would say that would have to be the Fenty Beauty Liquid Lipstick. I absolutely loved how it looked, but after a couple of hours it had smudged almost completely off and had even traveled under my lipline.

What’s one beauty hack you would recommend to anyone?

Your setting spray is not just for after you’re done your makeup. Spraying a little bit right before applying your foundation will really help it absorb and leave you with a smoother finish. You can never have too much setting spray!

Jamie Tugayeva – UK Beauty Lover

Jamie thoroughly believes beauty is for everyone. He’s here to help you break out of whatever beauty box you’re stuck in and learn all about the new you! Plus, Jamie’s a UK beauty lover, so if you’re looking to learn about trendy beauty products on the other side of the world, Jamie’s got all of the info on the hottest hits.

What beauty advice do you hope to share with the world?
Makeup has no rules, which people forget. We try to blend in too often when we can also use it as a tool to stand out. Make-up doesn’t always have to be pretty or follow the trends. The point is to be you!

What is your holy grail foundation?
My current favorite for mixed skin is the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer. Foundation is only one step for me, my favorites change, but this is what works best right now.

What’s the most disappointing beauty product you’ve ever tried?
The Makeup Forever Step 1 Make-up Equalizer Mattifying Primer. The primer didn’t hold any of my oil at all. To this day, I can’t look at Makeup Forever without feeling it’s overhyped and overpriced. No one talks about them anymore.

What’s one beauty hack you would recommend to anyone?
Go away from the hype and try local brands too. Your make-up collection doesn’t always have to come from Sephora. In Europe, I get exposed to different brands and find different Holy Grails that may not be as popular but work flawlessly for me.

 

Alexandra Gavrilescu – Makeup Fanatic

Alexandra loves to play around with luxurious makeup products, but she finds herself always gravitating toward affordable options. She hopes to teach every person how to feel confident and beautiful in their own skin through the power of makeup. One day, she hopes to hold her own Art Classes to teach the foundations of makeup artistry.

What beauty advice do you hope to share with the world? 

A good set of brushes will change your life. You should never doubt how much different your makeup looks when you’re using high-quality brushes. And don’t forget, high-quality doesn’t always mean expensive. There’s a lot of affordable (but quality) brushes out there on the market.

What is your holy grail foundation?

IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream. I know this one isn’t cheap, but I love the way it feels on my skin. It does such a great job of covering everything up without making me look like a doll!

What’s the most disappointing beauty product you’ve ever tried? 

The Urban Decay Wired palette. I was so excited when it came out, but it really wasn’t workable. The colors were so patchy!

What’s one beauty hack you would recommend to anyone?

Don’t try to “save” your skincare products. One day I was talking to a friend who also happens to be a scientist. She told me that the second the ingredients in your skincare products are exposed to oxygen, they start to degrade. This means they won’t be as effective. You’ll get more bang for your buck if you use your skincare products heavily!

Alizabeth Swain – Beauty Influencer

Alizabeth fell in love with makeup after she discovered Jacyln Hill on YouTube. After she bought her first colored highlighter, beauty became Alizabeth’s entire world. Now, she shares her favorite beauty finds, makeup tutorials, and testing videos with her fans on Instagram and YouTube. If she could describe her style in one word, it would be “colorful”.

What beauty advice do you hope to share with the world? 

Find your perfect nude. Your perfect nude lip shade will do SO much for you. You can seriously pair it with any makeup look. Once you find your perfect shade, hold onto it because it’ll take you through the rest of your life.

What is your holy grail foundation? 

The Rimmel Stay Matte foundation. It’s SO cheap and always lasts me a long time. I love how easy it is to apply and the coverage on it is amazing.

What’s the most disappointing beauty product you’ve ever tried? 

The MAC Fix Plus spray. It didn’t do anything for my makeup. I even wondered if it was just water in a bottle, with no other ingredients. I have other setting sprays I trust!

What’s one beauty hack you would recommend to anyone?

Always put highlighter on your cupid’s bow, your brown bone, and in the inner corner of your eyes. Your lips and your eyes will look so much bigger, with minimal extra effort!
