Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Michelle Phan is just twenty-seven, but she's already a worldwide make-up sensation. Her YouTube channel boasts over 6 million subscribers who tune into her ever-growing video library. In this not surprisingly titled debut book, she shares her favorite beauty and makeup tricks and techniques; suggestions about creating a personal style; plus tips on career, etiquette, relationships, success online and off and much, much more. Advice on transforming every facet of your life.

Publishers Weekly
07/07/2014
Entrepreneur, digital pioneer, and self-taught beauty expert Phan offers a lifestyle guide that combines stories from her life with beauty basics, fashion tips, job advice, and modern etiquette how-tos. After gaining fame for her YouTube makeup tutorials (she now has 6.3 million subscribers on her channel), Phan shot beauty videos for Lancôme, launched For All Women Network (FAWN), founded Ipsy (a beauty-sample subscription service), and launched EM, her own makeup line with L’Oréal. The first half of the book concentrates on beauty, with chapters on caring for your skin type, makeup basics, hair and nail care, and wardrobe tips, among other subjects. The second half discusses lifestyle topics, such as: digital etiquette (texting and social media dos and don’ts) and housekeeping (backing up files, digital organization); job-hunting; and entrepreneurship. The modern manners section includes a questionnaire filled out by Phan that is sure to delight readers with factoids about her life. Phan’s warmth and accessibility shines through in this fun and empowering manual. 150 four-color photos. Agent: Cait Hoyt, CAA. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
"As the Internet’s reigning beauty queen, Michelle Phan has taught women around the world how to do their makeup—over a billion, if you count her YouTube views. Written with her signature humor and grace, and covering everything from mastering liquid liner to writing a business plan, this book is the manual you’ll want by your bedside, and your makeup table." —Sarah Brown Beauty Director, Vogue 

"Simply said, Michelle is amazing in every way.  Her wisdom, optimism, courage and creativity have propelled her into an explosive, universal force.  Her story telling and love for women of all ages makes her a true "sister" to millions of women.  A day with Michelle has the power to transform everyone she reaches, everyone she touches." —Carol J. Hamilton, President, L’Oréal Luxe USA

"Michelle has blazed a new path for women everywhere. Armed with passion, personality, business savvy and a YouTube account, she's built a worldwide following from the ground up. Make Up: Your Life to Beauty, Style, and Success—Online and Off shows how Michelle transformed her talent and creativity into a global brand." —Robert Kyncl,  Global Head of Content and Business Operations, YouTube

"YouTube’s quick-change makeup queen knows a thing or two about going from webcam-ed tutorial giver to bona fide beauty mogul. Glean a bit of Phan’s mojo by thumbing through this hardcover." —Refinery29

"Phan’s warmth and accessibility shines through in this fun and empowering manual." —Publisher's Weekly

"Michelle Phan share all her secrets to success and best beauty tips...her down-to-earth approach to life makes it easy to believe you can have it all, too."—Metro

Library Journal
09/01/2014
More than six million people subscribe to Phan's eponymous YouTube channel where she shares makeup tutorials for everyday and special-occasion looks, as well as ways to use makeup to transform into celebrities (Lady Gaga, Angelina Jolie) or characters (Danerys Targaryen, Sailor Moon). In all of her efforts, Phan, who introduces herself in her videos as "your beauty bestie," encourages viewers' self-confidence and individuality. Her first book brings that point of view and attitude to the page. Makeup instruction is only a small part of the volume, though, and her advice extends to skin, nail, and hair care, as well as expressing oneself through fashion, professional conduct, and manners. The chapter on "Digital Dos and Don'ts" brings a modern touch to this general conduct-of-life guide. VERDICT Phan's entrepreneurial spirit and diligence will inspire readers. Much of the cosmetic and fashion advice is not necessarily new, but the author's fresh approach will especially appeal to younger readers who are drawn to learning more about her life and work.—Meagan Storey, Virginia Beach

    I really liked this book! Some parts of it are specifically

    I really liked this book! Some parts of it are specifically intended for college age girls or women in their 20s, but I found Michelle's advice to be mostly universal. Teenagers would benefit from reading this book, as well as women in their 30s and 40s. The advice she gives about makeup, style, job hunting, and manners are great lessons for everyone.

    My favorite parts of the book were the sections on makeup, clothes, and business. The only downside is that so many topics are covered, it's very general and somewhat vague. I wish there had been more specific advice in some areas, but overall, I felt like it was a comprehensive primer for any woman looking to improve herself.

    The book itself is very pretty and great quality. However, all the information inside it is very generic. There are no specific tips or tutorials like in her videos. If you want a gift for a tween who is just discovering makeup, or a coffee table book with nice pictures, consider this. If you want anything more in-depth, skip it.

    Oh my goodness! I don¿t know how I ever lived without this book!

    Oh my goodness! I don’t know how I ever lived without this book! Michelle Phan is just amazing and I have learned SO much from her and if you don’t know who Michelle is, she is a beauty guru on Youtube. If you have never seen her videos, go look her up!

    This book is all about makeup, skin care, fashion tips, how to be successful tips, and much more! She walks you through how to pick out the right foundation to how to contour and highlight. This is seriously like a makeup class in a book. I honestly can not say enough good things about this book. However, I do think it’s more targeted for young adults. I just don’t think the older generation of women would be interested in learning how to dress like a young girl in this modern society. Although, that don’t mean you can’t pick this book up and learn something! There are things for everyone to learn in this book. Michelle did a really good job at putting this book together. My hat goes off to her.

    I seriously went all “makeup geek” when I saw this had arrived. I honestly freaked out and I have no shame! This is a wonderful book and I am so happy to own it. It has already found its place with my other beauty books. If you love makeup and fashion then you definitely need this book in your life. I’m 110% honest about that, you NEED this book in your life! I give this book more then 5 stars!

    I received this book for free from Blogging For Books Program in exchange for my honest review.
