About Be For Beauty
How It All Started By Manavi Siddhanti
To tell you the long and short of it, I’ve been a part of Indian media for a decade now. I’ve tried my hand (arm and leg) at TV production. Years went by and I worked as a writer and editor at India’s media companies: India Today Group. If you Google my deets, you’ll find my bylines in over 30 publications (I’m not trying to brag). But yeah, that’s what I have been up to.
Back in 2014, I decided to take a plunge and work solo. So I started blogging about Beauty—which soon turned into Lifestyle blogging. My experience in travel, working in production, executing fashion shoots and penchant for lifestyle all came together.
While the blog took shape, I was approached by smaller brands like Lushescapes, Aaranyaa, QUBA, The Weight Monitor & Whole Foods for digital content creation. I have also handled personal accounts Ishi Khosla, Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta who are pioneers in their fields and needed someone who understood the content strategy, creation and marketing. I was also fortunate enough to be a vital part of Myntra’s content strategy from 2014-2016 as an expert to their Look Good section, as a columnist at Quint (2015-2017), beauty expert and editor at POPxo, and more recently Tripoto (2019).
Until now, I’ve worked extensively as a writer, editor, columnist for the biggest media houses and India and also helped brands shape their online presence. Read my latest blog on counterfeit makeup here.
How Be For Beauty Went to Switzerland By Pragati Siddhanti
Hello, everyone! I am Pragati—am the co-founder and partner at Be For Beauty. Earlier in 2016, I relocated to the picturesque city of Basel, Switzerland with my 9-year-old daughter and a workaholic husband. I took a year-long off my corporate life to pursue my M.S (Masters at FHNW in Switzerland) post which I continued to write about Swiss Expat Life and also launched my e-book, 21 Hiddens Gems Of Switzerland. We’ve recently moved my section to a new URL, My Swiss Story where I continue to write about my experiences, travels and expat life.
This website (notice I call it a website, not a blog) has more to it than most others have to offer. We strive to create quality-driven content with plenty of tips and great insights for anybody who’s kind enough to stop by.
We’re more than just a blog, we’re content creating genies. Manavi is adept in writing, proofreading, content strategy to create (and increase) engagement and ultimately lead to sales. Besides her full time job, Pragati is helping expat women in Switzerland to network, find jobs through her podcasts and her workshops while she continues to blog.
We have unique proposals for start-ups, medium as well as large companies and would be happy to manage your content projects. If you like a one-on-one consultation, that works fo us too!
