Beauty & Health Director
Elaine Welteroth is Teen Vogue's Beauty & Health Director. In her role, Welteroth produces dynamic content tailored to empowering fashion-focused teens. She oversees the beauty and health coverage across the brand’s print, digital, video, and the all-important realm of social media, reaching an audience of well over 15 million monthly. Since taking on the role in 2012, Welteroth has helped launch the magazine’s first-ever YouTube channel and she hosts three top-performing beauty shows: 3 Steps To, Get the Look, and Beauty Crisis. She has held senior positions at Glamour and Ebony where she started her editorial career leading the beauty and style department before joining the ranks at Conde Nast.
Welteroth has interviewed top celebrities from Rihanna to Michelle Obama, and she appears on television segments for NY Live as a beauty expert. When she isn’t reporting on the latest trends, it-girls, and products of the moment, the San Francisco Bay Area native enjoys scouring the city for the next, best workout class to drag her friends to. She is especially passionate about opening doors for the next generation of extraordinary multicultural talent in the media space. Prior to forging her career in publishing, the Sacramento State University graduate got her start in New York City through a MAIP internship at the award-winning advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather. The MAIP organization and greater 4 A’s community holds a dear place in her heart for playing an instrumental role in shaping her professional trajectory. It is her honor and privilege to host this year’s The Face of Talent luncheon.
