Vote for Me, S'il Vous Plaît?



I'm pretty much thrilled to have been nominated for the Marie Claire Most Wanted Beauty Blogger award. It's particularly thrilling that it's Marie Claire that took notice, since they have a long record of publishing excellent women's journalism of the sort that makes me proud to have worked in women's magazines.

The Beheld is up against some seriously big names in beauty blogging, like BellaSugar, YouBeauty, Into the Gloss, and The Beauty Brains—and is the only blog run independently (that is, it's just me here, folks, no creative director or whatnot). I'd be honored if you'd take a minute to vote for The Beheld (or whomever, I'll never know!). And if you'd like you can also enter to win a gift bag chock-full of goodies, so hey, incentive!

  1. Oh, this is so funny. I don't wear makeup at all but I read your blog because your writing is thoughtful and sharp and funny, so I went to the Marie Claire site to vote for you. Just about none of the questions in their survey applied to me . . . Favorite luxury beauty brand? Most common makeup drama? Favorite nail blogger? I just clicked "Other" and wrote "None" for almost all of 'em. They will never in a gazillion years pick me for their issue, But I hope you win!

    1. Ha, I love it! And even as a makeup wearer, plenty of the questions for me were like...huh? But then again, I was genuinely glad to be casting my vote for my love of dry shampoo, so...

      In any case, thank you for taking time to vote for me!

  2. Voted! Although like Sue, I had no idea how to answer the other questions, unless I could relate them back to mascara. Mascara is a big concern of mine. Oh, it did give me a chance to plug Evan Healy a bit, because I love those facial tonics and am pushy about getting other people to try them (which will hopefully make them more available, if I can create some local demand.) Best of luck, this is far and away my favorite beauty blog!

    1. It's so funny what products we latch on to--I wear mascara but wouldn't think much about going without it, but once I discovered eyebrow pencil there was no turning back... And I hadn't heard of Evan Healy but now that I have, I'm glad!

      Thank you for voting!

  5. I already voted for you, several days ago as a matter of fact. I don't know how I came across it, but you got my vote. Good luck! Oops, somehow my entry came up with our company profile. You know who I am, and for those who don't, I'm Tricia.
