Alana Peden is a writer, lover of animals and raging feminist. Her interests span from how to wield a mascara wand to the intricacies of the 3-4 defense, as does her writing repertoire. Always game for a laugh at her own expense, Alana aspires to one day give the universe back a scintilla of what it gives to her. When she's not reading or writing, she's planning elaborate outfits for hypothetical situations unlikely to materialize.
Alana's covered beauty at magazines like InStyle, MORE, OK! and Star for the past five years. Her writing has also dotted many websites, including New York Magazine's The Cut, Refinery29, Texas Monthly, Her Campus, Fitness and Lucky. She was also selected as the only New York-based print editor to attend the 2016 Grammy awards with CoverGirl, and helmed all social media channels for MORE during that unforgettable weekend.
