Your guide to the very best in makeup, skincare, treatments. Plus the latest in beauty and its movers and shakers.
Welcome to The Beauty Edit
Beauty, as seen throughout history, is a fundamental pleasure. Next to the basic needs of clothing, shelter, and food, cosmetics or skin decoration that enhance one's appearance—to empower oneself, denote a particular rank in society, attract the opposite sex, or just simply feel great—have been timeless concerns and cultural constants throughout the ages.
As with fashion, beauty is indispensably caught up with society’s way of life—changing, adapting to, and highlighting cultural practices—making it quite a good indicator of time. Perhaps more than products, this is why beauty has such transcendent charm. The Beauty Edit hopes to be part of this, capturing snippets of this ever-evolving world of beauty.
Beauty Is As Much About People As the Products They Use
Throughout the 20th century, television and print media were the beauty industry’s visual filters, channeling desires and narrowing preferences. Today, with the emergence of social media, it’s become the other way around, where readers and audiences are forces that influence trends, products, and content. This, all the more, highlights who truly holds the most importance: people. And this is how we try to produce content at The Beauty Edit—with our audience in mind.
We’ve collated some of the questions readers sent us and answered them here to help you get to know The Beauty Edit better.
