Hi, I'm Grace. I work with words on a daily basis as a beauty editor.

I started this website in 2011 as an outlet for writing about THE PRODUCTS I DISCOVERED AS I TRIED TO CURE MY ACNE, and that outlet ended up creating a lot of opportunities for me over the last sEVEN years.

Since graduating in 2014 I've moved from Oxford to Manchester, worked on beauty counters, contributed articles to online and print publications, studied for a Masters in History (SPECIALISING IN THE HISTORY OF BEAUTY), worked as a some-time makeup artist, and landed my dream job.

THATGRACEGIRL is a consolidation AND OUTREACH of my knowledge, insight, experience, and passion for all things beauty.

In addition to all of that, I also like to eat, run, spend all my money on magazines and lingerie, dance to 80s music, and hang out in coffee shops.
