If you think beauty books aren’t worth the investment, think again. There may be plenty other resources out there when it comes to beauty, but a beauty book can be the ultimate bible to all the skincare and makeup know-hows you’ll ever need. Not to mention, they’ll sit pretty anywhere you place them. Case in point? The new Editing Beauty II by NYLON’s Editor-in-Chief, Adele Chan.

Here are five reasons to check it out:

1. The girls
If the cover girl looks familiar to you, that’s because she’s Diya Prabhakar, a rising model who’s one of eight local It-girls to be featured in the beauty book as well. There, you’ll find a section that delves into the beauty regime of personalities with the likes of Oon Shu An, Claire Jedrek, Munah Bagharib, and Jayne Tham.



2. The tutorials
Get tips from the industry’s experts, including detailed tutorials by celebrity makeup artists such as Dollei Seah, Ginger Lynette Leong, and Grego Oh. Dollei schools us on how to get Alicia Keys’ bare-faced look without actually being bare-faced; Ginger Lynette shows us how to enhance Asian eyes, while Grego Oh gives us his best tips and tricks for those with darker skin tones.



3. The beauty advice
As a magazine editor and former Public Relations manager of Estée Lauder, Adele’s got plenty of knowledge and experience to share with all of us, so expect a practical approach to beauty in this book. Discover primers and foundations to form your base, the right way to test makeup and skincare, and some of the best beauty finds in the industry.



4. The online shopping
Beauty webstores have undoubtedly transformed the way we shop for skincare and makeup in Singapore. In Editing Beauty II, Adele has charted some of the prime beauty webstores to let us in on the brands they carry, the buying habits of their customers, as well as the top sellers on their sites.



5. The insiders
To feed the beauty-obsessed even more, you’ll get to meet professionals and veterans in the beauty industry. Here, they detail their experiences working in the realm of beauty, share with us their favourite beauty products, and spill their top tips and tricks.


Similar to the first edition of Editing Beauty, Editing Beauty II is tailored towards Asian girls of all skin tones, but this time, there’s gonna be much more insight. You won’t have to wait much longer to get a copy too. So head down to our office tomorrow (Friday, 28 April) from noon to pick one up!
