Reviews for Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty : Everything You Need to Look Pretty, Natural, Sexy & Awesome

School Library Journal Reviews 2000 December
YA-Brown and Iverson give teens basic beauty tips and a large boost to their self-esteem. They set the tone with "makeunders," before-and-after color photos of young people in which a very limited amount of makeup has been applied to highlight their naturalness, and with advice that begins in bold, hot-pink letters: "YOU SHOULD STAND OUT, NOT YOUR MAKEUP." The advice is broken down into lists and bullets and accompanied by diagrams and photos. The authors stress the importance of diet and exercise. There are chapters for African Americans, Latin Americans, Asian Americans, and "Global Beauties." Later chapters give more recommendations for teens who are athletes and those hoping to be models. An index of resources provides ideas on where to buy beauty products, advice on going to a dermatologist, and general thoughts on weight loss. Brown's own line of beauty products are not mentioned in the body of the book, but merely listed as a Web site in the index. Sound, supportive, and conservative beauty advice that teens (and their parents) will love.-Jane S. Drabkin, Potomac Community Library, Woodbridge, VA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
