So I don't spend all my time at the beach just reading gossip mags; I like a good book. Beside the two summer romance novels I just finished, my friends and I keep going through this: SEVENTEEN ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BEAUTY: The Best Hair, Skin, Nails & Makeup Ideas for You.
All the beauty advice I have come to expect from Seventeen magazine is available in this new book! Packed with tons of awesome pics, each chapter offers detailed how-tos, amazing inspiration, and awesome advice. Written by Ann Shoket, editor-in-chief of Seventeen magazine and some of the Seventeen’s editors, this is my beauty guide.
The book is so easy to navigate. All you do is look for your individual style and learn how to play it up!
- Girly: mixes sweet and romantic with refined touches for pop and polish
- Glam: makeup that’s dazzling and dramatic
- Classic: timeless beauty with a modern twist
- Edgy: strong, daring, and undeniably cool
- Boho: natural and earthy but way beyond neutrals
Each theme includes looks for every occasion: school, weekend, party, and date, plus essential tools and products. There are a ton pro tips and my favorite part, a celebrity-packed look book. This section features teen beauty icons such as Demi Lovato, Nicki Minaj, Emma Stone, Zoë Kravitz, Freda Pinto, and more.
The book also features a hair guide with chapters on: Waves & Curls, Braids & Twists, Sleek, Updos & Buns, and Ponies. This section offers easy-to-do styles for every event, essential tools, and step-by-step instructions with photography. I have been trying out a ton of new styles, and it is all because of this book.
The final section of the book offers a comprehensive guide to getting the most beautiful skin and nails, plus the best makeup and hair for special occasions, from Sweet Sixteen to prom!
