About The Glowhow

about-theglowhow

The Glowhow is a site about beauty: defining it, finding it, creating it. If you find happiness in the perfect fuchsia lipstick, you reject the notion of a “right” way to be beautiful, and you believe that beauty talk should be smart and fun, hello. We’re going to get along just fine.

Annie Tomlin — that’s me. I’m a writer and editor living in New York. I used to be the beauty director of POPSUGAR and Refinery29 — not at the same time, of course! — and so I’ve spent the better part of a decade swimming in beauty products. (Not complaining.) I’ve also written for publications such as Vogue.com, Cosmopolitan, Elle.com, xoJane, Ms., Nylon, Bust, Punk Planet, Time Out, and Oprah.com. I write, take pictures, and generally make the Glowhow doughnuts.

    What a great website! I used to love your stuff on Refinery29, so I’m happy to know that I can find you here now!

    • http://www.theglowhow.com/ Annie

      Thanks, skin twin! Looking forward to chatting with you here.

  • jamie@owlreally.com

    Hey Annie! I was just going through my RSS reader and came across my subscription to your old blog. I used to read your blogs waaaaay back in the day – I think when I was in HS and you were in college maybe? I remember squirrels. 🙂 I googled to see what you were up to – I’m happy you’re still writing- and successful with it!

    • http://www.theglowhow.com/ Annie

      Hi Jamie! Thanks for the nice note. It’s good to hear from you. Squirrels still (always!) hold a special place in my heart. I hope you will enjoy the beauty stuff here, but I’m hoping to get enough time/energy to keep up a site with the nonbeauty writings as well. So we’ll see what happens. Thank you for reaching out. It is always touching to hear from people who’ve been reading for the long haul.

  • Christina Farrell
