Book Review: Make Up…Your Life Guide to Beauty Style and Success online and off by Michelle Phan

IMG_0335

My daughter is starting to dive into the wonders of makeup and style! That along with our decision to get her a phone is creating a whole new set of parenting concerns. Thank goodness she is into sports, as this is helping with keeping the healthy lifestyle going. And there are a multitude of videos via YouTube that she has access to, but screen time is something we limit as well. So when this book cam out, I thought I would first read it and then see if appropriate for my daughter. And I am happy to report, that it is very insightful and my daughter loves it, and I have learned a few things too!

This book goes way beyond just learning about make-up. It also teaches about career goals, professionalism and modern manners! Here is a list of the contents that I think will help you see all that is included. I appreciate how Michelle shares her experience and again serves as a nice role model for my daughter to see (items in parenthesis are my ideas on the chapter!):

My Life so far, parts 1 and 2

Skin Care Savvy

Makeup Basics and Beyond (I am learning lots here for my own makeup application!)

Hair and Nails Know-How

Fashion Tips and Tricks

Digital Dos and Don’ts (With the age of cell phones and online everything access, this is now something that everyone needs to learn)

Find and Keep a Job you Love

Turn Your Passion into a Profession

Modern Manners Made Easy

Ask Michelle

Good Luck!

I approve this book for my own daughter to read, and I am learning from it as well. It has actually created some nice conversation for us to discuss and I also ask my daughter for advice, which she is happy and proud to offer me too!  It’s easy to read and everything is in color with great photos. It makes for a great reference that we both now goto!

    Happy to find this review. I too have a daughter who is dabbling into all this stuff. Is Michelle, the author, a kid? I feel like I’ve seen her picture on a billboard. And if she is, even better (for my daughter) to get this advice from someone young. Thanks for sharing!
