BOOK REVIEW: LIVING BEAUTY
In her introduction, make-up artist Bobbi Brown states "there's a certain amount of peace that comes with getting older". This does not mean that Bobbi no longer cares about her face, hair etc. but that she has focused on creating a new aspiration for herself. This is the purpose of Living Beauty.
The first chapter is called "Role Models". It is here that Bobbi includes "words of wisdom from women who have come to age beautifully". Several well known women give their description of beauty, aging and looking good.
There is a chapter called "Skin Savers" - What a Good Dermatologist Can Do for You. Bobbi admits that she is not a dermatologist but she knows that a beautiful face starts with beautiful skin. This is a thorough chapter that gives detailed information about the many kinds of skin treatments available. There is also a skincare glossary that defines the ingredients we hear and read about most often.
Another chapter is called "The Makeup Face-Lift" - Surgery-free Ways to Wipe Away the Years. It is here that Bobbi lists her five instant look-lifters.
There are chapters on many other interesting and helpful tips such as how to color lips, how to groom your brows, how to get standout eyes, skimpy or nonexistent lashes and several more.
There is even a chapter on menopause where Bobbi lists the five natural ways to deal with the change.
This is an excellent book that women, especially those who are 30 and above, will love. There are beautiful photos that show before and after pictures with detailed explanations of what was done. Women love ways to help take away some of the signs of aging and this book gives the reader details of how to do this in a thorough and easy to understand manner. Another interesting part of this book is that Bobbi interjects her "pointers" throughout which are bits of information that she has learned throughout the years. This is one book that all women should have on their shelf. I highly recommend Living Beauty.
