He offers advice on hair care, makeup, clothing, and self-confidence to help the reader look and feel like a star . . . He emphasizes, through interviews with noncelebrity women in his life, that beauty comes from within and follows his upbeat talk with easy-to-follow hair-care, makeup, and fashion tips for women who want to enhance their already fabulous selves . . . this informative and encouraging guide will inject a healthy dose of self-love into readers' beauty regimens. Highly recommended.” Library Journal

Such a good beauty book! It is easy to follow and the "real women" parts make you feel good reading it. It can be disheartening to see beauty books featuring celebs bc obviously you dont have a team at home ( unless you do, in which case, I'm jealous). But the tips are easy to follow and super helpful. Love it!
