    Celebrating God Created Beauty

    Shelly Ballestero, former beauty editor for Lifestyle magazine and beauty expert for CBN.com, offers fresh insight and encouragement to women of all ages who want to look their best. While showing us how to focus first and foremost on our inner beauty and see ourselves the way God sees us, Shelly also offers savvy secrets and tips on how to make the most of our outer appearance.

    By exposing the lies and motives of the media, Shelly motivates women to believe in themselves and appreciate their unique, God-created beauty. In Chapter Eleven, Alleviate Stinkin' Thinkin', Shelly teaches her readers to change their thoughts and attitudes towards themselves and change their thinking to reflect God's thoughts about beauty.

    Encouraging scriptures referencing beauty are sprinkled throughout the book along with tips on healthy hair, how to live luxuriously for less, expert eyebrow techniques, and steps to a flawless face. Shelly also details for us the differences in foundations, the history of lipstick, tips on looking younger and knowing your body shape. One of my favorite chapters was The Pampered Pantry which offers beauty treatments with natural ingredients. Most interesting was the "pick me up" facial using coffee grounds, which I promptly tried myself!

    For those who are looking to go "green", there is plenty of information on organic and all natural foods, supplements and makeup in this book as well. Shelly also tells us the ingredients in cosmetics that are making us sick, and gives us a Top Ten list of things to stay away from.

    Included in this book are several quotes and interviews by Nicole C. Mullen, Kim Alexis, Lisa Bevere, Tammy Trent, Anita Renfroe and more.

    In Chapter Eight, Clothing Essentials for Potential, readers are encouraged to do their homework and know their body type in order to choose clothes that flatter their shape. According to the author, you don't have to lose your style; you just have to make it work for you. In this chapter readers will also find tips on knowing which colors work for them and how to shop for clothes that fit properly.

    Shelly addresses the hot topic of modesty and quotes Danielle Kimmey, former member of Out of Eden who says "our bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost, and they need to be protected.....when the sexy comes into your wardrobe, you've gone too far...we have a responsibility to ourselves." Shelly includes some guidelines which readers can use to see if various articles of clothing pass the modesty "test".

    I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in fashion and health, and for those who want biblical balance as well as natural beauty.
