About Beauty Banter

Beauty Banter was launched in July of 2006 as a comprehensive beauty blog covering trends, tips and tricks, insider secrets, and weekly must-haves. Beauty Banter has a reputation of being on the cutting edge of emerging trends and product launches so our readers are always the first to know what’s hot and what’s just not.

Our mission at Beauty Banter is to form a dialogue between reader and expert – to merge runway trends with real life, and to give our readers a VIP peak into the world of beauty through the people who shape that very art form.

You’ll always get exclusive content, always interesting, and, hopefully, always inspiring. Thanks for reading!
