More About the Author
Nadine Jolie Courtney is author of the beauty guide Beauty Confidential (Avon, 2007) and novel Confessions of a Beauty Addict (Avon, 2009), both published under her maiden name Nadine Haobsh.
Widely considered the first professional beauty blogger, Nadine was a former beauty editor at Lucky, Ladies' Home Journal, and FHM before creating her trailblazing site "Jolie in NYC" in 2005, now located at NadineJolieCourtney.com.
Stints as a Creative Consultant for Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and Business Manager to 10-goal polo player Carlos Gracida led to a career chronicling royalty, travel, and pop culture--in addition to beauty--for sites and magazines like VanityFair.com, Fox News, the Huffington Post, Jane, Cosmo, Angeleno, and MTV. She's appeared on the Today show, CNN American Morning, MSNBC, Tyra Banks, and several commercials as a beauty expert.
Nadine lives in LA with her husband Erik, where she is working on her next book, a YA novel set in the world of royalty.
She has a passion for polo, stiff drinks, and learning to say "Where is the nearest Sephora?" in new languages.
