About Us

BeautyNewsNYC is the first digital beauty magazine, founded in 2003, and our loyal readership has proliferated ever since. We offer the latest and greatest in beauty, lifestyle, fashion, and more in 10+ sections. Our mission is to uncover intriguing products, places, and services and present our readers with reviews from writers whose tastes and experiences are as varied as those they serve. We revel in an unabashed celebration of all that is fun combined with that which is deeply impactful.

Helmed by digital publishers Candice Sabatini and BK Taylor since 2011, BeautyNewsNYC reaches readers through multiple channels: our website, newsletter mailings, and social media. Our articles resonate with beauty junkies, hair & skincare fanatics, the fashion forward, fragrance lovers who appreciate the difference between a chypre and a floriental, home décor dabblers, spa hoppers, culture vultures, metro parents and metro men. Our city pulse section highlights what’s new in NYC, and our Health & Fitness section highlights all that keeps you fit and healthy. The talented staff at Beauty News NYC is comprised of editors and writers who curate the beautiful and the interesting, and while we do receive product samples from companies and publicists, we don’t review products unless we truly love them.

Amy is originally from Indiana, and whether or not her years spent covering the food and entertainment scene in NYC has earned her a seat at the table may be debatable, but it's of little consequence — she much prefers a stool at the bar.
