This would be a really great book if you loved pageants. It's got a lot of good tips, but nothing that you haven't already heard in numerous beauty/fashion magazines. It also has lots of photos and information on pageant contestants too. If you're really into that...then go for it. But if you're looking for some real beauty "secrets," then I wouldn't bother.

You'll love it! If you were in the Miss USA pageant, Miss Teen USA, Miss Universe you will love this book... Especially if you're a winner. Since it's one big celebration of these pageants or any pageant by Donald Trump complete with him giving a bragging opening ''foreward'', pictures of all the girls, them on the back giving fab reviews for it and talking all about themselves in it with only minor beauty information. Stuff everyone basically already knows- but if you want a guide with some beauty pageant contestants/winners this is it... Other than that don't expect too much.

I hate to say this since I try my very best to have a positive outlook in life and give everyone the benefit of the doubt....however this was hardly worth the $4 I spent on it. I have competed in a few local pageants, and I guess I was looking for some new information and beauty tips from a book bearing the Miss Universe name (I mean, how much higher in the beauty world can you get than being the most beautiful woman in the universe??? Surely these people must know something that the rest of us don't??).
I was able to finish going through this book in approximately 3 minutes and during those 3 minutes determined that there was nothing in here for me to learn. For a book with "guide to beauty" in the title, I found this to be more of a photo album across the ages than a "guide". There are a few beautiful photos of former title holders....which I may be able to take to my stylist to have her emulate....but if I end up looking anything like these women at any point, it won't be because of any tips in this book.

While there was SOME useful information in this book, I found it seriously lacking. There is a lot of useless information in here about the girls, pageants, etc and not as many tips and tricks as I had hoped for.
