India Knight's Beauty Edit

India Knight's Beauty Edit


With beauty, as with so much else, knowledge is power.
Here's all of mine.

Why has my favourite eyeliner stopped looking flattering?
What can I do about the skin on my neck?
Am I too old for contour? What is contour?

Every week, tens of thousands of women turn to India Knight's beauty column in the Sunday Times Style Magazine, to be directed to beauty products that really work by someone they can trust - and who understands how much this stuff matters.

It matters because looking, and therefore feeling, like yourself at every stage of life is fundamental.

In this brilliant, essential, reassuring book, India has distilled her beauty wisdom into practical advice for every part of the face and beyond: from tips for thinning lips and thinning hair, to the best skincare for older faces, to the make-up products that really make a difference, to demystifying the scientific jargon beloved by the beauty industry.

If you would rather not use 35 products on your face every morning or watch how-to videos on TikTok, or if you have ever looked in the mirror and found yourself thinking 'Who is that?', then India Knight's Beauty Edit is the book you've been waiting for.

It is a glorious and indispensable celebration of how to be old(er) with minimum fuss and a generous helping of grace, confidence and style.
