Are Luxury Beauty Sales The New Norm?

Over the course of the last three to five years the beauty industry and community has gone through many, many, many changes. I’ve seen blog focus migrate towards youTube and video tutorials, I’ve seen youTube’s numbers dropped with more focus on Instagram, and as of late even Instagram’s engagement is down with more focus on TikTok (which is absolutely crazy but oddly amusing and addicting). During this time I’ve also seen the trend of purchasing anything full price was considered absurd as ...

How to become a 'public figure' on Instagram by changing your account settings

You can become a public figure on Instagram by changing your settings to list your profile as a professional or business account.  Be aware, however, that this "public figure" status is somewhat controversial since it doesn't require the checks that actual verification does, so it's not necessarily reliable to onlookers as a sign that someone is a real public figure in the traditional sense. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. On social media, verification can help signal to ...

Watch Jean-Luc Godard’s Filmmaking Masterclass on Instagram

As the last living major French New Wave director, Jean-Luc Godard has become a kind of oracle for younger filmmakers and cinéastes. Despite having turned 89 last December, he remains in a sense what film scholar David Bordwell not long ago called  "the youngest filmmaker at work today." When Godard started working in cinema just about 65 years ago, it didn't take him long to make his name by breaking its rules. Ever since, he's warded off complacency by continuing to rethink, at the most ...
