CAN YOU TELL US ANY FUN,
EXCITING STORIES ABOUT THE
If you’re reading this, chances are you are familiar with the beauty industry, and if you are, chances are you have a funny, wild, emotional, or helpful story that the world should read, and we want to help you tell it.
Instant Beauty, an online makeup company specialising in eye shadows, has ONE mission, and that is to help women love the way they look by accepting their own unique appearance. We want to be a place where every woman can share their own ideas, from women who have something to show the world, to women who are willing to understand more about themselves and combining it with makeup rules—you don’t have to be a makeup expert to write a fresh, compelling, and unexpected story about your experience. We share perspectives that people can relate to, inspire them, make them laugh, and challenge them to think about something differently.
At Instant Beauty, we’re always looking to work with freelance reporters and reviewers who want to contribute reported or personal articles to the online blog magazine. You don’t need to be a professional writer to tell a story – if you’ve got something compelling to say and can write about it well, we want to hear from you too.
We want our Blog to be a showcase for sharing your own make up palettes, and how you apply them, Maybe the latest gossip on what’s new, and perhaps funny anecdotes, or stories on celebrities and articles/videos about helping others with their make up battles or frustrations. You can think about new topics or use one of the following examples:
- Eye Shadow – Colours by age- Does age change your preference in colour?
- Eye Shadow -Colours by skin tone- Do you find your skin tone inhibits or allows you to wear specific colours?

As long as you have something meaningful to say that hasn’t been said elsewhere, get in touch—we’re always seeking new and diverse voices.
We believe it’s important to be as open and transparent as possible about how you can work with us. This post is intended to do just that, so please send all types of stories and experiences you have had with Make up! We look forward to reading and selecting your entries.
FROM ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE:
For those with a background and experience in journalism, writing posts and blogging, we seek stories and posts that take a step away from the regular make up news, and explore fresh angles that have not yet been addressed.
Showcasing first-person accounts using unique ideas are a large part of what we do. We’re always looking for colourful and different essays that make us laugh, lead us to tears, or truly astound us.
We’re all about hearing from people with a fierce and passionate argument, especially if it goes against the status quo. You should have authority in the topic you’re writing about and make sure that your opinion is backed up with facts and cohesive reasoning.
We’re deeply interested in the characters who make our industry run — the businesses, the people and the manufacturers. Stories like non-profit organisations, industry people raising money for poverty and more stories you can find elsewhere.
It’s nice to laugh once in a while. We’re interested in your quick-witted pieces that are subtle, easily relatable, and hilarious.
We all have those looming questions we’ve never answered. For example, does my husband think I am spending too much money on makeup and fashion? Can we trust top brands that are affiliated to celebrities?
We’re not all text all the time. We’re always looking for ways to tell stories visually, whether that’s a moving photo essay, a series of comics or illustrations, a video feature, or a set of infographics or interactive graphics.
