Why should you be reading a beauty book when there are tons of beauty magazines and online articles and YouTube videos out there? Well, for one, it’s a one-stop guide to all the makeup, skincare, and beauty tools dos-and-don’ts you need, and sits nicely on your bookshelf or coffee table. And we mean real prettily. You won’t have to scroll through pages of content, it’s as easy as flipping to the page you want.

And two, it’s a matter of perspective. In this case, Editing Beauty is written by our editor-in-chief, Adele Chan, who, as both magazine editor and former PR manager of Estee Lauder, has a wealth of knowledge and experience to impart. I mean, just look at the countless beauty products that come through our office everyday – she has seen them all.

So, if you’re, specifically, a Singapore girl/woman, it’s good news. All the info’s tailored to you. That means, an Asian slant, with the knowledge that we’re always looking for the best hyped-about yet fuss-free ways of improving our look, while on the go. This should really be your beauty bible – think, topics like how to properly choose a liquid foundation for our tropical climate, the cult red lipstick shades you might already know about, or how to pop a pimple, all properly researched and recommended by Adele, and compiled with help from the NYLON team, including our designers and writers.

There are also insider tips from beauty industry experts, including step-by-step tutorials by celebrity makeup artists Clarence Lee and Dollei Seah. Clarence Lee gives us four gorgeous lip looks, Dollei Seah shows us how to put together a makeup artist-worthy lipstick palette, while Dr Georgia Lee clues us in on all we need to know about those nasty pimples and pigmentation.

And if you’re curious as to why model Fiona Fussi’s on the cover, well, there’s a nice section that features our local It-girls (many NYLON Singapore cover stars), where you’ll get to know what really goes into the beauty regime of personalities such as Rozz, Liv Lo, Tabitha Nauser and Fiona Fussi.

You won’t even have to wait – it’s out now, at all Kinokuniya bookstores!
