Have you heard of Inika yet? You probably will soon. For the very least the brand has been getting some pretty cool endorsements, not least by onscreen beauty Holly Willoughby. Her makeup artist has been using Inika for the presenter’s appearances on Dancing On Ice and at the Brits. I’ve just been introduced to the brand with a lovely load of samples. Firstly, I’m loving the colours I’ve been given – the Cream Illuminator in Rose, the Baked Blush Duo in Burnt Peach.
Iconic restaurant Ivory in Belfast has had a facelift. In case you don’t know what on earth I’m talking about, The Ivory is perched on top of House of Fraser in Belfast’s Victoria Square. the best entrance can be found at the corner of Chichester Street and Victoria Street. There are a couple of things to make The Ivory so remarkable – and its location is only one of them.
I really, really do. Pixi by Petra is exactly the kind of brand that has the very product I needed before I even realised I needed it. Even better, I get to meet about once a year with Pixi’s make-up artist Amanda Bell. Apart from being just about the nicest person you’ll ever meet, you can talk for hours with her about make-up and it will never get boring. Cats too, but let’s focus on the make-up. So in case you didn’t know, Pixi is a brand very well known for both skincare and make-up.
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".
