This week the amazing beauty blogger Cindy of PrimeBeauty is hosting Fashion Flash. She has a passion for all things beauty that comes across in every post. She tries out every item from a fragrance to foot cream to provide an honest and useful review. And she has never let me down! I am not alone in my opinion– Prime Beauty has almost 150,000 Facebook followers who agree with me.
Fashion Flash Book Review: You Tutorial– Make-Up
Just when I thought there were no original ideas left, I found this book. Its an innovative idea that offers a guide to the best Youtube videos. It even includes both QR codes and URL’s. I love the way the book is divided into distinct caegories including skin care, contouring, lips and cheeks, eye make-up and tools of the trade. Within each category, this 6×6 book lets you find the best video for a wide range of issues. Most of the featured vloggers are Youtube stars like Bethany Mota, Wayne Goss and Cassandra Bankson. They have dozens of videos and this book helped me find the best of the best. . I learned how to get fuller lips, , the best way to apply red lipstick, how to sculpt killer cheek bones and my personal favorite, the absolutely best way to apply blush from UK beauty guru, Sally Hughes. On a more practical level I took notes on PixiWoo guide to brushes– and now , finally I have the right brushes for my needs.
I have to confess that my favorite section offers step by step instructions on a wide range of celebrity looks If you have ever seen a famous face without make-up you will understand the awesome power of cosmetics. So this section helps me replicate some of my favorite looks. I have a round face and I just loved the way a guide to Adele’s Grammy makeup looked on me. Equally successful was Lea Michelle’s smoky eye and Angelina Jolie’s cat eyes. Its the perfect book to play with when a winter blizzard keeps you indoors for several days.
