Mandy Moore has become a contributing beauty editor for

First singing, then acting and now journalism - the star has turned her hand to writing a monthly column called 'Mandy's Must-Haves' for the beauty website, in which she will put her favourite products to the test.

She wrote in her first blog for the site: ''Those who know me well are aware that I am a big fan of all things beauty. So when the editors at Byrdie asked me to test-drive some of the goodies that pass across their desks, I jumped at the opportunity!

''Heck, I'm already a bonafide beauty hoarder, so I'm more than happy to share my findings as an unbiased guinea pig with the other beauty obsessed folks out there.

''As a matter of fact, this month's haul proved to have some quintessential items to help me transition between spring and summer! Enjoy!''

The 30-year-old 'A Walk To Remember' actress' ''beauty junkie'' status makes her a perfect fit for a regular column. She follows in the footsteps of lifestyle-savvy celebrities like Drew Barrymore, who was unveiled as the new editor-at-large for Refinery29 earlier this year.

An introductory post to Many's first column reads: ''Welcome to the very first edition of Mandy Moore's brand new Byrdie column: Mandy's Must-Haves. Yes, we've tapped the actress/singer as our new honorary staffer.

''Moore, although famous for being in front of the camera, is a beauty junkie after our own heart, making her the perfect person to be our critique the newest lipstick, nail polish, and so much more for us.''
