On this episode, I chat with the amazing Tia Williams, the only other Black woman to be a staffer in Elle magazine's beauty department in its early years. We discuss the massive collection of magazines she started at age nine, her obsession with Kevyn Aucoin and other legendary makeup artists, and how she'd obsess over makeup in the drug store. 

We talk about how she landed positions at some of the most prestigious print magazines, started one of the first successful beauty blogs for Black women, Shake Your Beauty, and her transition to a more corporate role and the learning curve involved in that. 

Tia is more than a beauty editor, she's also a novelist and we'll discuss what she's learned about being an author. And how excited she is about actress Gabrielle Union turning her 2016 novel, "The Perfect Find" into a Netflix film. And we've got more to look forward to with her next book due out in 2021.

Learn all of this and more.
