Since April, there have been rumors that HGTV darling Joanna Gaines will be leaving her popular show, Fixer Upper, to start a beauty line. Today, she set the record straight: there is neither a skincare/cosmetics line on sale currently nor in the works. "I wanted to take a minute to let y'all know that it's simply not true," she wrote on Instagram. "This is a SCAM! We have nothing to do with it and have been trying to stop it for some time."
Drew Barrymore is a woman after our own hearts. The Flower Beauty founder just wrapped up another #beautyjunkieweek, giving us a peek into her vanity and favorite tips. The best one, by far, has to be her surprisingly affordable trick for getting pearly white teeth. While many celebs shell out a couple thousand for veneers, Drew swears by a tool you can find at your local drugstore: Colgate Optic White Whitening Pen. It typically comes as part of a toothbrush set and costs only $15.
As we've seen with the Kylie Jenner/Vlada Haggerty (aka @vladamua) drama, makeup artists on Instagram are constantly at odds with big companies that allegedly take "inspiration" from their work. Earlier this week, Australian makeup artist Katina, known as @doyouevenblend on Instagram, called out Real Techniques for posting a photo on Instagram of an eye makeup look that appeared uncannily similar to one she posted back in December.
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".
