As a Beauty Editor, Fiona Mckim has tried more products than she’s had hot dinners and nothing makes her happier than raving about a brilliant beauty find in woman&home magazine, womanandhome.com or her Instagram grid (@fionamckim if you like lipstick and cute shih-tzus)
Fiona joined team W&H as Assistant Beauty Editor in 2013, working under industry legend Jo GB, who taught her everything she needed to know about sorting the good stuff from the fluff (clue: learn about ingredients and employ extreme cynicism). In a previous life Fiona studied Journalism back home in bonnie Scotland, honed her skills as a features writer and prior to that had a brief and terrifying stint on the showbiz gossip pages of a tabloid newspaper.
She describes herself as a skincare fanatic and can’t resist adding an extra step to her evening routine if it’s all the rage in Asia, loves fragrance with a passion, has fun with make-up but never turns down the chance to test a new hair tool. Basically, she loves it all.
When not slathering herself in self tan or squinting at a tiny ingredients list on a moisturiser you’ll probably find Fiona enjoying something to do with food - cooking it, eating it, cajoling her friends into trekking across London to try the latest street food pop-up. Come to think of it, the hot dinners and beauty products are probably about even.
