We started Byrdie back in 2013 because, like you, we’re pretty obsessed with beauty, whether it's testing out the latest K-beauty trend to achieve our #GlassSkinGoals, discussing the best natural beauty products with Zoë Kravitz, or investigating the truth about Olaplex. Our team of award-winning writers and editors have worked for the biggest publishing houses and beauty companies in the business, including Hearst, Condé Nast, Meredith, and L’Oréal, and is committed to creating an inclusive space that lifts up diverse voices and celebrates the unique beauty found in each of us. Over the years, we’ve become one of the largest beauty sites on the internet, reaching nearly seven million readers a month, according to ComScore, with our library of more than 14,000 pieces of content—and it’s not all lipstick testing and selfie-taking.
