Yes, we are fully aware that summer has only just given up the ghost and that it is far, far too early to start thinking about advent calendars, but when beauty brands are teasing us with an array of covetable festive launches (all of which will doubtless sell out before we’ve seen the back of Halloween), it’s hard not to get caught up in the hype.
It’s one of those horrifying, but common nightmares that you turn up to work completely naked. In the buff, without anything to hide behind. Yet, that is what Glossier asked of its recent campaign stars who were handpicked to launch their brand-new product dubbed Body Hero Duo. Calling on photographer Peggy Sirota, Glossier shot Paloma Elsesser, Swin Cash, Tyler Haney, Pia Arrobio, and Mekdes Mersha unclothed.
Not only an excuse to indulge in mulled wine and mince pies on a daily basis, the run-up to Christmas is also marked by the daily joy of opening another door of your advent calendar. However, forget a measly piece of off-tasting chocolate (or worse, simply a picture - the horror! ), the best way to celebrate the month of December is with a gift to yourself every day, ideally a new product for your ever-expanding beauty stash.
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".
