Marci Robin is a contributing editor at xoJane and xoVain. After plowing through the creative writing program at Florida State University, she moved to the city of her birth, New York, for an internship at The Late Show With David Letterman, eventually breaking into online content by auctioning herself on eBay as an editorial assistant. She's been writing and editing with a focus on beauty ever since, serving as associate editor at Alloy.com and, after moving back to Florida for a while, senior online editor at NewBeauty magazine. Florida is decidedly not her jam, though, so she now lives in Brooklyn with her two shelter dogs (proof she's a good person), Max and Rufus (which are also her dead grandfathers' names).  
 
Marci grew up with the last name Zitner, and people enjoy pointing out the irony of a beauty editor having a synonym for acne in her name.
