Hello, I'm Sophie Shaw, a New York-based editor and writer covering beauty, fashion and more.

Currently Associate Editor, Beauty at CNN Underscored, I've spent the past two years testing, reviewing and reporting on the newest, most exciting and absolute best products across skin care, makeup, hair care, grooming and more. From life-changing makeup bags to industry insider favorites to getting in front of the camera to share my personal must-haves, I'm always game to talk beauty recommendations, news and trends.


In tandem with editing and writing in the commerce space, I contributed to various print projects, including editing HYPEBEAST Magazine (marking the streetwear bible's return to print) and writing features for L'OFFICIEL USA.


Prior to this, I started my career in media working on the digital side of fashion magazines. At L'OFFICIEL USA and CR Fashion Book, I interviewed rockstars, kept on the pulse of Hollywood's next big binge, covered backstage beauty at New York Fashion Week and much, much more. 


With over 800 published articles and counting, my growing portfolio is constantly being updated with the latest in beauty, fashion, lifestyle and culture.
