About

Rebecca Barker

Welcome to The Beauty Inbox. I’m a journalist and editor from Dublin, Ireland. Obsessed with all things beauty and photography, I started the blog in 2014 to share my passion for skincare and health – with the odd red lippy thrown in for good measure.

Currently the beauty editor and a news columnist at The Irish Sun newspaper, I’ve written for the national press for over two decades after graduating with a BSc in Journalism from DIT School of Journalism and the University of Dublin (Trinity).

My work has featured primarily in The Irish Independent, The Sunday World, The Herald and The Irish Sun, and I’ve appeared on Virgin Media’s (TV3) Ireland AM and RTE’s Morning Edition in my capacity as news journalist.

In November 2018, I was short-listed for Popular Columnist of the Year at the National Journalism Awards 2018.

I love to hear from readers so drop me a line at Editor@TheBeautyInbox.com. And don’t forget pick up a copy of The Irish Sun newspaper every Tuesday to catch my beauty column.
