My Review:
I was given a copy of  Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Beauty: The Best Hair, Skin, Nails & Makeup Ideas For You to review. Granted, I feel like I am a galaxy away from being seventeen, but I still want to look presentable. The older I get, the more I don't want to look my age :). As such, I was definitely curious about the book. The one thing I love about it is that there's lots of photos in the book. I am a visual learning, so I like to see images associated with the beauty tips being offered. Being a busy mom means that I don't have a lot of time to read, so it's helpful to be able to see photos and quick short tips for the different hair, skin, nail or makeup ideas I am interested in. From tips about how to rock a dark lipstick to how to apply fake lashes, I feel like this book has it all. This is a great book for teens and worthwhile for a mom to pick up too!
