Jessica Matlin decided she was a beauty editor at age 9 when she self-published her own beauty magazine—unfortunately, distribution didn’t reach much further than her parents. As a teen, she studied Kevyn Aucoin’s Making Faces instead of SAT Prep. It was job training: She has since been an editor at W and Allure, and worked with luxe beauty retailer Space NK in London. She’s currently the beauty director at Harper’s Bazaar. While Jess covers all areas of the industry, she’s particularly obsessed with skincare (exchanging rapid-fire emails with the world’s biggest derms) and fragrance—her ability to identify the notes in the latest perfume launch (from celeb to super-niche) is sort of insane.
Jennifer Sullivan (who started Fat Mascara back when she was Jennifer Goldstein!) began her beauty career as a cashier at a perfume store in West Philly, and since then she’s worked at Sephora.com and as an editor at numerous magazines, including CosmoGirl, Health, and Marie Claire, where she worked for seven years as the beauty director and features editor. In her quest to uncover beauty secrets, Jenn’s gotten inked by a Maori tattoo artist in New Zealand, harvested shea nuts with women in Ghana, raided the road shops of Korea, and squeezed enzyme-rich eggs from salmon in Norway. She can pluck eyebrows like a pro and has read the FDA’s entire 46-page monograph on sunscreen labeling and effectiveness—but she still can’t get liquid eyeliner to look the same on both eyes.
