If you thought glitter was a trend buried in the abyss of your teenage dreams, you're sorely mistaken. Glitter has resurfaced over the last few years, making its return on the runways of Fendi and DKNY. Pat McGrath, the celebrity makeup deity who sprinkles glitter on everything like a magical fairy, is a big part of why glitter has come back into our orbit and we can't lie, we kind of love it.
Let's be honest, #hairgoals in the summer is just trying to keep your strands from degrading into a flat, sweaty mess. We've all been victims of an especially humid day, slaving away with a curling iron only to have the muggy air knock the wind out of our bouncy, voluminous 'do. It's just one of the beauty struggles that comes with heat and it's a good problem to have. Relative to wind burn and other harsh winter-related beauty woes, we're not complaining.
Toting around a massive makeup bag is annoying but seems necessary. Sometimes, you just need all the essentials so you can look fresh all day, especially in the summer when makeup slides off your face like hot cheese on pizza. Unfortunately, your poor handbag and arm are forced to shoulder the burden of a small makeup boutique and that's not ideal. You vow to minimize but your wallet, laptop, and an extra sweater are non-negotiable.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
