Overview


When it comes to teen beauty advice, no brand is more trusted than Seventeen, the #1 best-selling monthly teen magazine. Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Beauty is a girl's handbook to celebrating her natural beauty. It’s packed with clear, customized service that helps make the most of her skin tone, her face shape, her hair texture, and her style! Each chapter is filled with detailed how-tos, amazing inspiration, and awesome advice from Seventeen’s editors and the Beauty Smarties, our real-girl beauty experts, to help the reader have fun with her look!.
Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Beauty is broken down into three main sections: makeup, hair, and a resource guide. Makeup is organized by five beauty vibes—Girly, Boho, Classic, Glam, and Edgy—and shows you how to look great for any occasion (school, weekend, party, date). Each vibe offers exclusive makeup looks from Seventeen’s Beauty Smarties, insider secrets from celeb experts, and an inspiration board filled with runway, red carpet, and real girl ideas. Hair is organized by styles: braids and twists, waves and curls, updos and buns, sleek and straight, and ponytails. Each chapter includes easy-to-do styles for every occasion, a Smarties spotlight, celeb tricks, and an inspiration board. The book ends with comprehensive resource guides to getting clear skin and great nails—and gives detailed info on getting ready for a big event, like prom or sweet sixteen.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The editors of Seventeen magazine (and editor-in-chief Shoket) offer a fun, photo-filled guide to makeup, skin, and hair, a companion book to Seventeen: Ultimate Guide to Style. Along with glitzy photos of celebs are images of “regular” girls who are pictured applying makeup to achieve looks that range from natural to dramatic; sections are devoted to exploring ways to achieve glam, classic, edgy, and boho looks. Following an array of style ideas, readers can customize their own beauty routines by determining the best products for their hair and skin types. Fans of the magazine should discover plenty of beauty ideas to sample and share. Ages 12–up. (July)

My nook says this book was released on July 5th, yet, when I try to purchase it, it says it is unavailable at this time! So, at this time I am very displeased with the nook store service.

I absolutely loved this book. Not only do you receive hair, skin, makeup and nail ideas for you to try at home, you get to see what they really look like on celebrities. This book is perfect for any teen girl or young adult who are looking for new ideas to try out. One thing I loved about the book was that in the back of the book they give you all the page numbers for each different section, like, where you can find all their hair tutorials or nails. The book is filled with A-List celebrities and Seventeen's Beauty Smarties. The book also has the most beautiful elaborate pictures to capture the beauty and ideas for you. This is definitely something I'll be using and my teen niece will be borrowing from me.

This book lives up to its name: Ultimate! The beauty guide is packed with tips for different makeup, hair, skin and nails. Each look features pictures, step-by-step instruction, tools needed and ideas. Each page is simple to read and follow along if you are trying for a particular look. This guide is a great place to start if you are unsure of what type of look you want. There are so many ideas and combinations to try. I enjoyed the step-by-step guide on where to start, what tools you need and what colors to use. The pictures of looks, products and colors illustrate the look as well. The natural look is my favorite look. I love makeup! I like my makeup to give me a natural look rather than look like I have a ton of makeup on. The beauty guide is perfect for women of all ages, especially young women interested in makeup, hair, skin and nails. The ideas presented can be easily followed. There are so many looks and pictures to follow that you can easily design your own look from this guide.

This was a Christmas gift (request) from my soon to be 13 year old granddaughter. She has been very style conscious for several years, just starting to use makeup and very interested in it. Her other grandmother gave her the Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Style. She loves both and they will be a big help to her.
