We know the term’s been tossed around before, but Annie Atkinson has got all the makings of a massive girl crush. Her hair is what blow-dry dreams are made of, her accessories game is on point (vintage YSL, anyone?), and best of all, she's a fearless beauty voyager, trying all the latest treatments. Fish pedicure at a sketchy location in Paris? Why not. An acid peel that left her skin flaking like a sunburned lizard. Duh. But the best part is that she shares it all on her no-holds-barred blog, She’s In The Glow.
It reads like a glossy magazine, but with the satisfaction of a never-ending scroll. She shares her exclusive interviews with beauty brand founders, her expertise in finding products for that dewy, youthful glow she's got down pat, and her knack for knowing what'll be the next big thing (hint: custom hair care!). So, we took a trip to the Upper East Side to get the beauty sitch on what's good, what's bad, and what you just gotta have now. Get her tips and be in the know with our new favorite beauty whiz kid on the block.
