Elaine Welteroth, beauty and health director for Teen Vogue, is living proof that a studio tight on space doesn’t have to be short on style. Though the main living area of her New York apartment barely boasts 100 square feet, it’s packed with enough style to fill a palace. We invited Elaine onto Glitter Guide to reminisce about the design process—a collaboration she took on with interior designer Nicole Gibbons—and to dish on her go-to beauty secrets.

Tell us about your background and current (awesome) gig as Teen Vogue’s Beauty & Health Director!
At Teen Vogue, I oversee the beauty and health content in-book and online. The best way to describe the job is to say that no two days are ever the same. I write, I edit, I work on set at photo and video shoots, I lead an incredible team, I interview inspiring beauty experts and celebrities, I work closely with the business team, I test products—ultimately, the goal is to create compelling, inspiring and hopefully educational stories that help girls feel their best. I’ve been an editor at a number of magazines, but the connection we have with our readers at Teen Vogue is unparalleled. Meeting them in person and interacting with them on social media is hands down the best part of the job.
