Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-A book filled with dozens of practical beauty tips, diet and fitness suggestions, and fashion hints. With an emphasis on the natural, the former fashion model guides readers through bad-hair days, fashion faux pas, and the makeup techniques of the stars. Most of the supplies can be found in the home, although some readers may have to make a trip to a health-food store. Throughout, the author encourages readers to appreciate who they are and how they look and to think positively. The layout is enhanced by varied font headings and print shades but there are no illustrations. (Visual learners may have difficulty envisioning the proper application of blush without a diagram to guide them through the process, etc.) Overall, this is a handy book for anyone wanting to experiment with budget-friendly makeup and skin-care techniques.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Read an Excerpt

This is a great time to be a teen. There are more products than ever, individuality is celebrated and accepted, and authenticity is admired. It's also more confusing. With more products, more choices, and fewer rules and guidelines, it's easy to slip from beauty into bimbo.

What's a girl to do? Should I go glam or stay natural? Do I really want to cut my hair? Why did I cut my hair! How do I cover up that zit? I can't go out like that. Why is my tummy so bloated? Am I expecting my period? These are the questions that start around nine or ten and keep going. They last right into your twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, and even longer, but teens have a certain category of beauty that is their very own. No one can appreciate it unless they are going through it. Every generation goes through its own set of beauty problems. Yet, some of these problems carry over from generation to generation-the parent struggle, the not knowing, and the feeling that no one else has ever felt this way.

Surveys have been conducted rating the top three concerns among girls eleven to sixteen. They are appearance, popularity, and self-esteem. Feeling good inside and looking good outside can make life a little easier. It helps by leveling the playing field. You can have fun with beauty, and you can take control of your looks. You and your body, you and your looks can actually become friends.

It is my hope that I have covered as much information as you will need for creating your own style, for feeling comfortable in your unique skin. It's information I certainly needed when I was a teen. I've been working with teen models for a long time and there are formulas and techniques that you can use even if you never step on a runway.

So enjoy the tips, and rather than letting them complicate your life, use them in a way that will bring fun and knowledge.

I purchased this book for my grandniece who needs a little help in makeup and fashion style. I'm sure this book will help her change her look.

Wow! I bought this book and when I flipped thru it i was overwhelmed 'in a good way' by all the helpful hint and tips spilling out of this book. I do agree with the other reviewers though about the photo shortage but this book wasn't exactly a instuction manual on how to put on make up for the first time, right? It's for girls that want a new style or tips that your mother wouldn't ever give. This book is awsome I recomend it for preteens- teens aged 11-18 and on. Even adults find this book helpful so don't be drawn back by the word 'teen' in the title!!!!

It is ok but I would say that it is for younger readers I mean the tips are great! But the makeup part is not so great I give this a three for the facts

I mean this book is ok if you know what i mean for like 5 year olds this book does not work well at all, it does not really teach you how to put on makeup it is mor eof a confidence booter then anything else

I bought this book a couple of years ago after seeing it at my friend's house. I had fell it love with it there and I knew I just had to have it. It has completely changed my life! I feel so much better about myself and now I know what to do about girl issues like finding the perfect jeans or applying makeup. The only thing I don't like about this book is that there are no images or pictures for the makeup section. For beginners that haven't had a lot of practice with makeup, the removal of pictures might be a problem. But overall, I would recommend it to any girl that needed advice like I did and got it!

This book is a good confidence booster and has a lot of helpful hints and tips. Unfortunatly, when my sister and I tried some of the natural masks they didnt really work and the gelatin mask was the worst peel off mask I've ever tried and it didn't even work!!! Other than those, the book was good. I would recommend it to someone who needs a cofidence boost or preteens who don't have a 'clue.'

It's a great confidence builder, and really makes you feel better about yourself-- the information in itself is nice, but you can look any of it up on the internet and get the same results. Good book, read it if you're feeling down.

I was feeling really ugly and stupid, ya know the way everyone gets, right? I started reading this book and felt so much better! Real beauty's on the inside is the main point of the book, and it covers more than makeup- clothes, how to buy things at a good price, and there are tons of natural masks and things you can make for cheap!! For any teen out there, buy this book!!!
