Beauty Writer Jane Larkworthy Has a Pretty Amazing Job


If you've read stories about beauty products in the past 30 years, you've most likely seen Jane Larkworthy's byline.

She is a grande dame of the beauty world, having worked as Beauty Director at W magazine for almost two decades and before that, Jane and Glamour.

Jane was an influencer before that was even a thing. Her "hauls" appeared in her infamous columns such as  "Jane's Addiction", which chronicled her many beauty exploits with trademark humor and honesty.

These days Jane works as a beauty consultant for brands and as a regular contributor to New York Magazine's "The Cut," Coveteur, and Elle Decor. On the podcast, she talks about how she got into the beauty biz, her advice to aspiring beauty writers, her go-to scent, and what's hot and what's not on the beauty scene.
