I’m Rachel Weingarten and style is my business. Well, that may be the oversimplified if somewhat nebulous version of what I do. In addition to being a professional writer, I have a whole lotta hustle going on. I’m also going to be streamlining my public self, so expect less coming soon.
I’m a skillionaire. A polymath. A Jill of all trades. I’ve been called a serial entrepreneur*, hotshot consultant**, one of the new faces of philanthropy***, celebrity style maven**** and a marketing guru*****. You can head over to my catchall site to read a bit more about me and my professional self and find some of my other sites if you’re so inclined.
My day job is a marketing & brand strategist & trends analyst and copywriter. My side hustles are many and include my work as the author of three nonfiction books and a freelance writer and contributor to top tier outlets. I develop/brand/position/name products for cosmetics and consumer packaged goods companies. Sometimes I wear the title of professor as I lecture on the history of beauty culture, beauty advertising and consumer trends on the graduate and undergraduate level. Sometimes I even pack a room as I speak about topics related to business, style, beauty and spirituality and the way they connect and intersect in our bustling lives. Keynote addresses, corporate escapes and holiday parties? Yeah. I’ve got those covered too.
I have a couple of other more specialized websites if you’re interested in more information on me and/or the ways we can potentially work together in the future.

My day job is as a marketing strategist and president of a soon to be rebranded content and marketing agency.
by: Rachel Weingarten: You’re here now. I’m also an award-winning lifestyle author and writer. I’m a longtime columnist at Parade.com, amNewYork opinion columnist and career contributor to Ladders. You can find my writing on CNN.com, Forbes.com, The Guardian, Esquire.com, Jezebel.com, thekitchn.com, Bravotv.com and so many other top tier outlets.
The Evolved Foodie: In early 2018 I launched a newsletter and site that includes original recipes and articles about my quest for a better, healthier way of life and eating and enjoying food.
In my guise as The Beauty Historian: I regularly write about, consult on issues relating to (including film, television and museums) and lecture about the history of beauty, the beauty industry and cosmetics products and marketing.
BeautyCounterCulture: Though the site launched (finally) (officially) in mid-2018, Beauty Counter Culture began as an idea about a decade and a half ago; it inspired lectures and get-togethers and vast beauty brainstorming events. But it goes back further than that.Stay tuned as Beauty Counter Culture grows to encompass news, trends, product reviews and analysis, culture and more.
You can also find me on IMDB and my Amazon author page. (And yes, I know that basically all my sites need to be updated!)
My websites and I are both works in progress, so please keep checking back in for updates and random interesting information or appearances.
