Ah, beauty trends. They’re usually as fleeting as the British summer - just think how quickly shaved side parts and cornrows bombed. There aren’t many that actually stick around. Surprisingly, full brows have hung in there for a couple of years now and they don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Unfortunately, most of us are still cursing the time we over-plucked when trying to re-create that high, thin arch trend in the ‘90s.
Skincare problems are split into two camps. The prima donnas, who love the limelight (wrinkles and pores we’re looking at you). Everyone talks about them, what they’re doing to fix them, the cream they tried that’s the best thing they’ve ever used… we could go on… and on. Then there’s the other camp; the problems that are hiding backstage in the wings that no one seems to know anything about, or even how to describe. Most of us are used to our faces flushing.
We know what you’re thinking. When you hear the phrase ‘healthy eating diet’ it immediately conjures visions of picking at bird food all day and continuously feeling starved. We actually groaned just writing it. It's mainly because recently we've been bombarded with new tips and tricks to pack the nutrients in, but the irritating thing is most are irrelevant to your needs, not to mention completely unachievable (for those us holding down a job, at least).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
