Nothing exceptional It just contained information that we can find on the internet The only new thing for me the personal life of Michelle Phan, that was probably known all over the internet anyway Her life story was quite impressive but it didn t make me go all gaga about her I didn t even feel the sudden need to watch all her videos However, I did learn a trick from the resume making section that is to save the document as pdf Common sense as it was, I honestly never thought of that She also mentioned there might be some skills in real life that we might not aware can be counted as job experiences, and it opened my eyes a bit For example, I never knew driving grandma to the pharmacist doing laundry babysitting etc was actually something worth mentioning in a job interview I ll be sure to keep that in mind next time.The book was awfully long, and while I kinda knew it wasn t meant for a one sitting read, and most probably meant as a reading material for the rest of my life as a young woman, I didn t see anything special here So, while Phan s connection with big prestigious brands like L Oreal, Google, Vogue and Anna Wintour were indeed impressive, she didn t feel genuine to me There was constant mention of how she got rejected for the job as Lancome s sales person, and it got tiresome after the third time For God s sake, you only got rejected for that one time and whoa, girl definitely sounded bitter about it after so many years Then there was a kind of smug satisfaction when she was all Lancome counter rejected me, but then the Lancome executive from New York approached me to be their spokesmodel and flew me all around the world I was like, k.Phan also talked about a wide range of subjects from skin care to makeup basics of course to hair and nails to fashion tips and tricks for all occasions , digital dos and don ts, on finding a job you love to turn your passion into a profession She even talked about modern manners like table manners etc I would recommend this if you re a fan of Michelle Phan or just a beauty enthusiast in general. Michelle Phan Has Believed In Makeup Since The First Time She Was Allowed To Try Eyeliner When She Looked In The Mirror And Saw A Transformed Version Of Herself Looking Back, She Fell In Love With The Sense Of Confidence That Makeup Could Give Her Ever Since She Posted Her First Makeup Tutorial On YouTube, She Has Dedicated Herself To Inspire Millions By Using Makeup As A Tool For Transformation And Self Expression Now, Michelle Has Compiled All Of Her Best Wisdom Into Make Up Your Life Guide To Beauty, Style, And Success Online And Off From Creating A Gorgeous Smoky Eye To Understanding Contouring To Developing An Online Persona, Michelle Has Advice To Help You Transform Every Facet Of Your Life Make Up Is Packed With Michelle S Trademark Beauty And Style Tutorials, Stories And Pictures From Her Own Life, And Advice On The Topics She Is Asked About Most, Including Etiquette, Career, Entrepreneurship, And Creativity From The Everyday Such As How To Get Glowing Skin To The Big Picture Such As How To Turn Your Passion Into A Profession , Make Up Is A Practical And Empowering Resource To Help Anyone Put Their Best Face Forward I won a shiny, new copy through Goodreads I always read others reviews before posting my own, and the main complaint seems to be that this book is targeting young adults in their 16 20s I don t understand why anyone would expect a different demographic of course this book is for young adults Michelle just finished that part of her life and people write and should about what they know Michelle is extremely knowledgable but some of the makeup tips weren t that clear Regardless, I m giving this 5 stars because of the vibrant photos and easy to read writing. As a self proclaimed make up junkie, I couldn t resist a book by Michelle Phan who is well known in beauty circles And, overall, this is a really solid book Unfortunately, I think it s targeted towards a different demographic than me I m 40 years old and very savvy ok, obsessed with makeup I think this book is geared to those in their late teens, early 20s And, for that demographic, this book is fantastic This book focuses on the following things 1 Michelle Phan s story growing up, makeup, going into business, etc 2 Skin Care 3 Makeup 4 Hair Nails 5 Fashion 6 Digital 7 Jobs and 8 Manners All really great for someone still learning about makeup, skin care and beginning to think about finding their style and future profession I d highly recommend this for ladies in their late teens and 20s It s a very good book for those beginning to think about who they are and who they want to be Michelle Phan has written a fantastic starter manual for the modern girl The book itself is high quality the photos and the design are quite good Lots of great tips and tricks are included Although I don t think this is really a book that those who are a little further along their journey might get a ton out of, I still enjoyed it quite a bit It was a nice, easy read If you are obsessed with makeup or a big fan of Michelle Phan, I think you ll enjoy this one Or if you are looking for a book for a high school or college graduate, this might be something to consider NOTE I received a copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review. I picked this up because I subscribed to ipsy for a few months and thought it might be interesting to know about the woman behind what was, for me, a gateway drug to subscription box dependency There s a lot going on here Ms Phan s actually very interesting life story, a pretty thorough skin care guide, some haphazard makeup tutorials I found the apples of my cheeks as instructed and still don t know how to apply blush, because that is not actually explained, for instance , plus tips on manners and business The writing is okay, but the tone seems to be geared pretty young, and the rah rah rahness of it all wore thin for me fast Phan has many die hard fans who will love this I m sure In terms of non fans, I think this would be an okay pick for a 16 20ish woman, maybe a young business major who really loves makeup For adults Eh, probably not. In Make Up, Michelle Phan, beauty blogger and creator of the make up subscription service ipsy, discusses everything from the basics of a good skin care regimen to how to dress for a job interview to how to conduct yourself on social media The book is, honestly, a little disjointed It hops from one topic to the next with little to no transition But it means well Michelle Phan means well It s admirable that she s set out to create a modern guide to living your best life At 24 years old, having held the same steady job for over two years, and never really having been a social media oversharer, I don t think I was the target audience for her book I did read all of it, including the tips on how to get a job, the importance of an internship, and entrepreneurial tips Her endlessly positive attitude is a little grating, but, again, she means well The best parts were definitely at the beginning, when she discusses her background and how she went from being denied a job at the Lancome counter to being one of the best known names in make up I also have to admit that she taught me how to properly apply retinol, which is only slightly embarrassing, seeing that I work for a dermatologist In my mid twenties, this book didn t do it for me, but I would have loved it as a young teen.Thanks to Goodreads and the publisher for the free copy. I loved this book so much Not only does it deal with the basic makeup and hair tutorials and advice but it does so much It has a section on manners honestly it was so refreshing to see this because manners today have become almost extinct This book was so much than what I was expecting and I m happy it was. I m not subscribed to Michelle s youtube channel now but I ve seen a lot of her videos and always liked them and her personality Through this book I could clearly hear her voice and I really liked how it was written in such a nice way like she was talking to a friend There was a lot of light humor here and there that made me smile.I haven t read the whole book, I skipped some parts that were totally not for me like dating on the internet I m already married My favorite topics were about skin care and make up because I know some basics and take care of my skin but I want to know and try things It was very helpful and written in an easy and understandable way.This book would be a great source of advice for young girls who are still trying to find themselves. I received a copy of Make Up for review from Blogging for Books I expected the normal, ordinary photo filled book of make up tips Anyone purchasing this book just for that will be disappointed Far than a make up tutorial, this beautifully illustrated book covers topics such as wardrobe, finding jobs, and MANNERS It s sad to realize just how much this last lesson is needed She does a great job laying skin care, etc routines out in easy to follow steps It is a little intimidating to have tons of bottles in front of you and not know where to start If I have any complaints about this book, it is that she packs a lot of information in such a little book makeup, fashion, job interview tips, online behavior It also seems that she hasn t really chosen an audience is it for young teens or young adults However, there is useful information for everyone.I think Michelle Phan is a wonderful role model for young people She has worked hard to be where she is now her family sacrificed for her education I completely respect her I hope that the young people who get hold of this book really read her life story Ms Phan has become successful because of her hard work and talent She has wonderful life lessons to teach. I remember years ago when my friend sent me a link to one of Michelle s YouTube videos to learn some basics about everyday makeup wear It s nice to see that she has become so successful and has gone on to make a career out of something she enjoys The book is a good intro that covers all the basics I skipped most of the other chapters that dealt with internships, careers, etc as I had no interest in reading her tips on these subjects, and also am at a point in my life where I have had enough experience job hunting and working that I no longer need to read the basics of how to get started out in the real world However for young adults just getting started, this is a nice read.
