I’ll admit we beauty journalists are a tough crowd to please on Instagram. The Insta beauty community is flooded with millions of product reviews, conflicting recommendations and more questionable skincare advice than you can shake a stick at. As a result, it’s fair to say that most beauty journalists hold a high standard when it comes to the beauty accounts they choose to follow.
One fashion and beauty content creator who has totally won beauty editors over, however, is Alexis Foreman. Yes, she delivers beautiful and engaging content, but her advice is rooted in truth and experience. Since she is adored by beauty editors, fashion editors and just about anyone who might stumble across her profile, not only do I, as a beauty editor, wholeheartedly admire and agree with Foreman’s expert insights into beauty matters, but I also often find myself fully influenced by her recommendations.
And it’s not just beauty journalists who take inspiration from Foreman but also beauty experts. When I spoke with Redken artist and the owner of Avery Brighton, Katie Avery, late last year to get her predictions for the season’s biggest hair trends, she said, “My newest hair muse is Alexis Foreman. Her curated blonde is what I’m all about.”
From skincare to hair, there’s no doubt that Foreman knows what she’s doing. Taking in advice from all of the beauty experts that her job opens her up to, her product recommendations and tips are truly admirable. So when I found out that Who What Wear UK’s editor in chief, Hannah Almassi, was taking a visit to Brighton to sit down with Foreman for a Best Wardrobes in Britain story (seriously, her wardrobe is just as exquisite as her taste in beauty products), it’s fair to say I was more than a little excited to discover her top beauty tips.
And what she had to say was very insightful. Keep scrolling to discover the beauty products Alexis Foreman swears by. (Warning: Your shopping list could get long.)
In the 60 years since Marilyn Monroe’s death, her larger-than-life persona has been referenced, replicated and retold countless times. Hollywood can’t seem to stop producing content about her, and we can’t seem to look away. But unlike most of
