Vanese Maddix is a London-based freelance beauty and lifestyle journalist. Her beauty career began in June 2020 and she now regularly contributes to UK and US publications from Who What Wear UK, Refinery29 UK, Elite Daily, The Zoe Report and now Marie Claire UK. With a real passion for beauty, she covers topics from inclusive beauty products, product recommendations for glowing skin and expert-backed skin articles. Vanese talks openly about her struggles with anxiety and depression and channels this with writing mental health-related articles, which recently earned her a shortlist spot for The National Diversity Awards 2021. And when she's not writing about beauty, you can find her creating video content about it over on her Instagram.
