I gotta tell ya, I’m a lit geek prior to being a makeup lover so when makeup and a good book are combined, I’m over the moon.
Bobbi Brown Beauty Rules Book should be popping up at your local counters and bookstores shortly. It’s Bobbi’s sixth book release and focuses on, not the mature woman, but younger women.
Bobbi shares her best tips and tricks for fresh, healthy skin, hair, makeup and nails. As always Bobbi’s main goal is the help women look like themselves with minimal makeup tips to create a more confident, prettier you!
Bobbi Brown Beauty Rules was created to help young women learn the beauty basics and proceed to enable them to get creative and experiment with their looks, in the end, ultimately finding their own sense of style.
I have Bobbi’s Makeup Manual and it’s one of the most user friendly makeup reads I’ve had the pleasure of owning. It breaks things down so simply and gives incredible tips for keeping things fresh and beautiful.
I think Beauty Rules is something every younger woman should indulge in particularly if you’re just starting out in makeup.
It’s available now from Nordstrom for $24.95.
I’m going to purchase one for my cousin who’s 15 and just now starting to get into cosmetics.
Welcome to Pieces of Life: The Twilight DVD Edition.
Did I totally hear some of you start to scream and cry? I did right? The Muse is fond of musing about our friend Edward so of course she had to muse a little about the release of Twilight on DVD today and alert you all that it’s coming to a DVD near you on March 21st!
Get our your Eau de Edward and your Mrs Cullen T-Shirts and brace yourself for a re-watch of Twilight in the comfort of your own home.
The Muse happens to be a purist and she will say, possibly to your horror, that I hated the movie with a passion. Robert Pattinson? Well hello gorgeous I’d do you (Side Note: I wasn’t thinking that after I heard he hadn’t washed his hair in a few weeks ewww)! But honestly, let’s be honest ok? Honestly, aside from the one scene with saliva exchange between Robert and Kristen there was absolutely none of the chemistry, none of the passion, none of the emotion that the books detailed so beautifully. I can debate and rant this bloody topic all day with you but I shall say no more.
The important moral of this story is Twilight is available on DVD as of March 21st and of course yours truly will be buying it and rewatching it just in case it was good…one never knows as the Muse seen it on the first day it released and sat between many a screaming and squealing teenage girl..wait..that was my mate Jai who was squealing sorry about that…who knows maybe it was good and all the squealing took away from award winning performances…but I’m not counting on it!
Rave it or rant it!
My comment box is your comment box!
PS the Muse is, as always, a Team Edward player! Go Team Edward!
The Muse remembers the first time she purchased a cosmetic book. It had to be 10 years or so ago and it was entitled Your Makeover: Simple Ways for Any Woman to Look Her Best by Morgen Schick. The Muse is a big supporter of Morgen Schick and her amazing array of awesome cosmetics and her book was quite great at creating a flawless, natural look.
Recently the Muse was introduced to another makeup book which is the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual. The Muse finished this book in a day! I took it to bed with me one night and didn’t stop reading until it was completely done. Although much of what was discussed I already know I still felt like the book was an awesome manual for those who are just starting out in the cosmetic world.
The book covers many topics such as picking a moisturizer and foundation for your skin tone and type, how a good diet influences your skin and body, application of concealer, foundation, eye makeup, and more! The book has a solid index of just about everything you want or need to know about makeup and application. Granted, the book does contain the most basic (no complex application methods here just straight to the point) of information but this is actually what makes it so appealing as the simplicity of the techniques are easy to follow and understand! The book covers virtually all aspects of makeup but it also covers details such as photographer and becoming a makeup artist.
All in all it’s a rather interesting compilation of great tips and tricks! I think it’s well worth picking up if you’re a beginner to makeup application or you’re just seeking to brush up on your current skills!
I enjoyed it and I’m quite happy to have it on my bookshelf as I definately learned a thing or two after reading it!
You can nab yours from Amazon.com
Anyone read it or own it?
Tell the Muse!
