A beauty editor, also commonly known as a beauty writer, is the person who composes and edits articles and columns on beauty industry trends and ways for women and men to be fashionable and attractive. She may work for a newspaper, magazine or a Web site. Smaller publications often require a beauty editor to also work as a fashion or style editor or incorporate these topics into her beauty writing.

Beauty can be normally be achieved in a variety of ways. A beauty editor commonly varies her topics to include health, exercise and attitude, all of which generally affect a person’s attractiveness. To appeal to a wide audience, her writing typically provides information for various age groups of men and women.

Research is customarily a significant part of a beauty editor’s job. She frequently learns of new industry trends or products through press releases, word of mouth or general news publications. Before she decides to write on a topic, she customarily researches it on the Internet, using Web sites she trusts for timely and accurate information.

The writing normally includes factual reporting along with opinion pieces from beauty industry experts and consumers. Self-administered quizzes and questionnaires are usually popular among readers of beauty related materials as well. Product recalls or consumer concerns related to beauty products and items are often discussed in articles written by beauty editors.

In addition to writing and editing duties, a beauty editor is typically expected to attend community events, such as fundraisers and galas to represent the publication for which she writes. Her presence is often required at trade shows and conventions as well.

A common advantage to being a beauty editor is meeting with industry sales representatives.

These representatives frequently provide a fashion editor with inside contacts she can use to gain information for more in-depth articles.
