With GLAMOUR’s print frequency altering to biannual, the content will act as a beauty bible and style guide for the upcoming season.
In addition, the new-look GLAMOUR site has relaunched today with a mobile-first, social-first strategy and a focus on beauty content.
Camilla Newman, Publishing Director of GLAMOUR, commented: “Beauty content has been the leading traffic generator on the GLAMOUR site and is an area our audience has great confidence in. With our new digital-first, social first strategy – together with our other innovative events and community facing initiatives – the potential for growth in this untapped space is significant.
“We look forward to offering our partners innovative digital and live solutions.”
Celebrity and fashion editorial will still feature, but through a beauty lover’s viewpoint.
Advertisers on the site include Burberry, Dior, Falke and Nike.

She expanded: “The new platform agnostic GLAMOUR team, hired for their crack combination of digital and social focus, are creating influential and inclusive content led by exclusive access to the influencers, brands and celebrities our audience loves.”
