Who knew that you could make a living naming lipstick?
Well Courtney Dunlop did!
On today’s show, Courtney talks about being a beauty editor for big magazines like Marie Claire and Jane, and a writer for InStyle, Allure, Cosmopolitan and Real Simple.
As a beauty editor and author, Courtney has had jobs in the beauty industry that we haven’t even thought of. To me, being a beauty editor sounds absolutely glamorous and fascinating, so on this episode, I pick her brain about her career and about her book Break Into Beauty.
