Kelsey is a beauty writer and editor for Refinery29. She's also contributed to—and worked with the brilliant minds behind—media powerhouses like Seventeen, Shape, Allure, and TeenVogue.com. 

When she's not testing out the latest tubes of mascara or embarrassingly bright face masks, you'll likely find her eating
an unreasonable amount of spicy food, reading everything from psychological thrillers to wine guides, and/or posing in front of
(really random, probably colorful) objects.
