Allure’s Lauren Caruso Joins as Beauty Director
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–STYLECASTER, part of the SheKnows Media family of sites, today
announced that it is renewing its focus on—and investing heavily
in—developing modern, service-oriented beauty content for the millions
of millennial women who visit the lifestyle brand each month.
Beauty content is STYECASTER’s second-highest-performing vertical,
contributing to significant growth over the last nine months. Bolstered
by an end-to-end relaunch earlier this year, STYLECASTER recently announced
that it had achieved a peak reach of 4.7 million*, reflecting a 92
percent increase since June 2015.
To spearhead STYLECASTER’s renewed emphasis on beauty, Allure’s
former Senior Digital Editor Lauren Caruso joins the team as
beauty director. Previously, Caruso served as an editor at Refinery29.
Under Editor in Chief Jessica Teves’s guidance, Caruso will be
responsible for refining and expanding STYLECASTER’s beauty presence,
creating innovative tentpoles, programs, and advertiser offerings that
cut through the clutter and speak directly to modern women.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Lauren to the STYLECASTER team—she’s a highly
talented editor and strategist, and I can’t think of anyone better
suited to help steer our beauty efforts,” Teves said. “STYLECASTER’s
mission is all about celebrating and empowering personal style, but we
also recognize that beauty is a huge part of the style equation. As part
of these efforts, we will also be adding more original photography,
video and guest contributors into the fold.”
“I am honored to be part of such a fast-growing, millennial-focused
brand like STYLECASTER that has already done a lot to differentiate in a
notoriously crowded industry,” Caruso said. “It’s crucial to understand
the needs and desires of the women who visit the site—something that
STYLECASTER does really well. I look forward to working closely with the
team to reimagine how we think and talk about beauty and how that fits
into the day-to-day lives of our users through original service-oriented
reporting and tutorials.”
