ADELE CHAN owns and runs Blank Communications – a public relations agency that specializes in Beauty and Fashion representation. She is my go-to person when I need information on the latest ‘hot’ products and the first person I consult when in need of a new skincare product. With over seven years as the PR rep for Vancouver’s beauty mecca BeautyMark, Adele has tested every beauty product carried by BeautyMark. I’ve asked her to select some of her favourites and share her beauty tips.
