It has to be said, I’m really impressed with The Glam Guide, in particular, the chapter on beauty. For me, it was like going back to everything I learn’t when I was at beauty school, doing my NVQ Level 2. The views, opinions and techniques that are written about very much reflect everything I’ve been taught over the years. There wasn’t anything in this section, that didn’t make perfect sense to me, and I love how she’s covered so many topics that I’ve also written about on this blog. From how to choose a foundation, to creating a perfect manicure, it’s all there. She’s even written about DIY face masks (again we were taught this at beauty school), and an ingredient blacklist (something I’ve also written about here before). Beauty aside, there are also chapters on hair, fashion, travel, health and fitness, relationships, Youtube, blogging, and so much more.
Overall, I think this is a lovely book, with beautiful illustrations, and I would say it’s a bit like a beauty bible. If I had a daughter, I would definitely give her this to read, but that said, I think it’s a publication that would be brilliant for all ages. Sometimes I find that once I’ve read a book, I sell it again on my Amazon book store, but that’s not going to happen this time. The Glam Guide is a keeper! It’s the kind of book you can dip in and out of, and I’m glad that I now have something I can continuously refer to, rather than pulling out my shabby old beauty school notes all the time! When I next make a DIY mask I’m going to use The Glam Guide instead. If you’re interested in finding out how good this book is yourself, you can purchase it by clicking here.
