great book Sep 8, 2005
the title sounds kinda cheesy but it really is an informative book about every last detail of beauty. You will find many answers to questions that you have always wondered about...down to how to alleviate the pain of waxing!
A good reference book for beginners May 9, 2005
I am glad I did not pay full price for this book. It is geared toward women who know little to nothing about beauty products and make up application. It did offer some good reference material and it could have shown more detailed "how to" illustrations in the chapters regarding make up application.
Makes me feel like a makeup artist! Nov 24, 2004
I got this book for my sixteenth birthday from my BFF. At first I was like, well I'd never bother to buy this myself... but you should, it is SO helpful! I wouldn't say I was a beginner at beauty, but I can barely put eyeliner on straight. This book was perfect for me because the advice it gave was specific to an idividuals looks (ie, it has tips for different eye shapes, mouth shapes, face shapes, and how to pull it all together...) and it has TONS of helpful facts that I had no idea were true! Like, in the perfume section it talks about which kinds have been proven most sexy to men. Thats just one example, there are dozens more. I LOVE THIS BOOK! It has all the tips I can experiment with and wear for a daytime look, a night look, or a formal event... it is definitely worth it!
Every fair from fair sometime declines Nov 11, 2004
Wow. I bought this book a few weeks ago and for the first time I'm disappointed with a purchase. Their other title, Instyle Secrets of Style: The Complete Guide to Dressing Your Best Every Day, was very well done but this book is not. The pictures of famous actresses look like cut and paste and the graphic design and layout looks amateur.
This book doesn't inspire the reader to turn the page. It's dry and clinical and there is nothing unique that sets it apart from similar publications. Aveda Rituals and the Body Shop books like Body Shop Spa are gorgeous to look at, inspiring and make it feel as if you've stumbled upon a secret.
InStyle is a good magazine, not at the same level as Vogue but well done nonetheless. When I purchased this book sight unseen I thought it would take much from magazine, at least provide case studies. It offers none of that and surprisingly makes you feel that unless you want to sink a lot of income into chemicals and plastic surgery, then being beautiful is out of your reach.
An Excellent Resource on Looking Your Best You! Oct 31, 2004
I have been extremely inpressed with In Style's large print, large volume, hard back books and this one does not disappoint.
I personally am not someone who wears a lot of makeup or spends a lot of time taking care of my looks but generally that is because I am of unsure of how to begin. I now have great notes to take with me when I go to the store the next time.
I was also pleased that the book did not simply serve as advertisements for overpriced prodcuts. They did mention exclusive salon type items but I also found that Clnque Turn Around Cream and Fructis Conditioner (which I already use) are perfect for me.
This is a great resource for such a wide variety of people but I think it would be a terrific gift for a young lady. I would have loved to have had more details then just how to apply blush when developing a daily "beauty" regiment. I think the sections on skin care would be essential for young teenagers who really need to take care of themselves for life.
I highly suggest this item as a great reference too for any woman.
