Do beauty editors need to know how to apply makeup?
I want to know if it’s a plus that someone knows how to apply makeup to become a beauty editor or is it a requirement? How can I start sharpening my skills in order to become a beauty editor? Should I learn about all the different makeup brushes and colors?

if you want to be a beauty editor, you’ll have to have a wide, wide, wide range of skills and a LOT of drive. it’ll be a lot of hard work to get to that high up at a big magazine

if you are in college now, i’d suggest getting a double major in journalism (or communications) and fashion.

on the side, i would learn everything you can about fashion, makeup, writing, graphic design, photoshop, women’s issues, skincare, etc! basically, the more you know about what is important to your reader and how to execute the idea from the technical magazine side, the more likely you’ll be to achieve your dreams.
