Whether you’re a teenager or just still feel like one, this guide is super fun!”

Blog Critics
"Seventeen will be enjoyed by all adolescent girls who love to look pretty while maintaining their own unique sense of style. This can build self-confidence and self-esteem in teen girls.

FUN

"If you have beauty questions, this is one excellent and amazing resource! I couldn’t put it down! Beauty should be fun and having this book at your fingertips make it just that."

modoration.com

"Be sure and add this book to your Back to School must-haves. What good is a great wardrobe if you don’t have the skin, hair, makeup and nails to match? You can walk down the halls feeling confident with your look and with you on the inside and out. That’s a recipe for a great school year!"

School Library Journal
“The detailed photographs and step-by-step instructions will have readers practicing braids, up-dos, and smoky eye makeup for hours.”

Format: Paperback
Ann Shoket and the editors of seventeen magazine published this guidebook for teen age girls to help them get their makeup, hair and even their nails done in a polished and appropriate manner by filling it with tips, techniques, big colorful photos and how-to steps.

The five "makeup vibes" introduced in the book make perfect sense for girls to learn about the different ways to do hair and makeup including Girly, Glam, Classic, Edgy and Boho. There is a section highlighting several hairstyles such as waves and curls, braids and twists, sleek, ponytails, and updos. The last section of the book covers taking care of skin and nails.

The book is filled with great photos, lots of easy to understand tips and it is written in a style that works for teenagers. While there are many recommendations for colors and shades, there are no product endorsements or recommendations. Parents can be comfortable with the way the book takes a conservative view for applying makeup and the hairstyles are also moderate versus purple spiked styles. The book would make a nice gift to any teenager starting to show an interest in makeup, skin care, nails and hairstyling.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely loved this book. Not only do you receive hair, skin, makeup and nail ideas for you to try at home, you get to see what they really look like on celebrities. This book is perfect for any teen girl or young adult who are looking for new ideas to try out. One thing I loved about the book was that in the back of the book they give you all the page numbers for each different section, like, where you can find all their hair tutorials or nails. The book is filled with A-List celebrities and Seventeen's Beauty Smarties. The book also has the most beautiful elaborate pictures to capture the beauty and ideas for you. This is definitely something I'll be using and my teen niece will be borrowing from me.

This really is the ultimate guide to beauty. It has great ideas for every makeup style and very easy hair styles. Plus it tells you the best kinds of products for your skin type and great mani pedi tips. It also provides a customizable guide for the best colors for your skin tone and best products for your hair type. The only thing that would make it better would be if it had given the best brands of hair and makeup products.

My 11 year old daughter asked for this book for her birthday. She's just learning to experiment with make-up and loves fashion and this book is perfect. The title of the book is exactly what it is...an ultimate guide to beauty. This was a great purchase and we were not disappointed.

Format: Paperback
This book lives up to its name: Ultimate! The beauty guide is packed with tips for different makeup, hair, skin and nails. Each look features pictures, step-by-step instruction, tools needed and ideas. Each page is simple to read and follow along if you are trying for a particular look. This guide is a great place to start if you are unsure of what type of look you want. There are so many ideas and combinations to try.

I enjoyed the step-by-step guide on where to start, what tools you need and what colors to use. The pictures of looks, products and colors illustrate the look as well.

The natural look is my favorite look. I love makeup! I like my makeup to give me a natural look rather than look like I have a ton of makeup on.

The beauty guide is perfect for women of all ages, especially young women interested in makeup, hair, skin and nails. The ideas presented can be easily followed. There are so many looks and pictures to follow that you can easily design your own look from this guide.

Format: Paperback
While I may not be seventeen anymore, that's no excuse for me not to brush up on beauty lessons. I was excited when I was asked to review Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Beauty, and it is a fabulous tool. Filled with colorful photos, step-by-step how to guides, easy to understand instructions, and overall clear and concise advise, this was a great book to read. I actually have modeled a few of the hair styles, tried a few of the makeup techniques, and caught myself more than once reciting lines from this book with tips and tricks. If you love style and beauty, this is a great guide to have laying around the house. A bit on the young side, but of course, it is from Seventeen Magazine and the recommended reading age starts at twelve. I think my thirteen year-old niece would just love having this around, so I'm thinking a nice present is about to come her way!

Bought this book as a present for my step sister, along with her first makeup sets and stuff - she used the book immediately and was able to put on some makeup without looking like it was the first time she was using makeup (which it was). Good purchase for a young girl learning about beauty and subtlety.
