Annie Tomlin is a freelance writer and editor focused on the intersection of wellness, beauty, and sustainability. As a former beauty director of Refinery29, Popsugar, Lucky, and SELF, she's had the opportunity to nose around with perfumers, nerd out with cosmetic chemists, and ask dermatologists whether that spot really should be checked out. (The answer to that last one is always yes.) Beyond beauty, she's profiled everyone from music legend Joan Jett to Nobel-winning economist Paul Krugman. Her writing regularly appears in publications such as Vogue, Allure, ELLE, Bazaar, Rose Inc., Violet Grey, and Well+Good. She rarely posts to her Instagram grid at @annietomlin, but her IG Stories are chefskiss.gif.
