Stephanie Montes

Stephanie is a Fashion and Beauty Writer at Elite Daily, where she writes about her adventures in testing the latest trends in skincare, hair, and makeup, and explores the latest trends in clothes and accessories. She's not afraid to stick needles in her face or straighten her hair on an airplane (True story!), and she gets a rush from copying the best celeb outfits on a budget. Stephanie's bylines have also appeared on Hello Giggles,, MyDomaine,, Byrdie, Well + Good, and more. She's based in the valley of Los Angeles and received a bachelor's degree in fashion design from The Art Institute of California-Hollywood (proof that not all paths are straight). When she’s not exploring the latest beauty invention, you can find her hitting up her local taco stand — just look for the girl wearing heels and a cat eye — and enlisting the help of her husband to get all her angles.
