My favourite chapters! 

I really love the skin savvy chapter, it gives you abit about acne and all the essential steps you need to take and some extra little tips. Over all a good piece of information for a beginner 

The makeup basics and beyond chapter is great too it also gives you the basic tip and know how’s but not much from the makeup side! It has a bit about foundation and no brushes makeup, eyes, lips and a contouring, I thought there would be more makeup looks and eye looks, but still I guess good for beginners 

I favourite is the fashion tips and tricks, I like how it tells you how to dress for your body shape and lots of ideas for different events and how to achieve your own style! 


Over all I like this book, I feel in the makeup section it lacked a bit. I would definitely guide this more to makeup/fashion beginner because there is lots of helpful tips and tricks but not mush new tricks for a more experienced makeup junkie or fashion expert☺️ 

 For overall rating: 7/10

    I wasn’t impressed with the Makeup section either, like you said good for beginners, but I think the majority people know everything.

    I did a review on this book as well! I found it not suited for my age group.
