Fiona Embleton

Acting Senior Digital Beauty Editor

Fiona Embleton is the Acting Senior Digital Beauty Editor at Marie Claire UK. She’s been a beauty editor for over
 10 years, writing and editing beauty copy and testing over 10,000 products. She has just joined the MC digital team, having previously worked for magazines like Marie Claire, Stylist, Cosmopolitan and Women’s Health. Beauty journalism allowed her to marry up her first class degree in English Literature and Language (she’s a stickler for grammar and a self-confessed ingredients geek) with a passion for make-up and skincare, photography and catwalk trends. She loves jumping on the latest internet-breaking beauty news, dissecting the best red carpet looks and having the crème de la crème of dermatologists, make-up artists and hairstylists on speed dial so she can tap them for the best advice. She’s a discerning beauty shopper and knows it can be confusing trying to navigate what’s hype and what really works. So if she really likes something, you can trust that she has reached that opinion by vetting it against everything else she’s ever tried. Her career highs? Interviewing Jamie Dornan, winning a Johnson & Johnson Award for best digital feature and being nominated for six Jasmine Awards for her fragrance features. And the lows? Drinking her own urine for a feature. She’s obsessed with everything Scandi, true crime podcasts and FaceTiming her rescue cat Nelly.
