But I actually think that this book isn't that helpful for those that have been long term fans. The beauty sections were all information that someone who watches her videos would already know and the life sections contained very general advice presented in a straight forward way that I would have rather Googled than read. I would have preferred something more heartfelt in the life sections.
However, I would say an early teen trying to get to know beauty and what to expect from life would enjoy it. Assuming they don't already watch her videos, since again the beauty sections don't hold much for regular watchers,
Overall it was an easy book to understand and I enjoyed the intro that told me more about Michelle.
Michelle gives advice from social life to using the computer, beauty, and career. In the first part of the book, she includes a bit of her background/biography. If you haven't checked out Michelle Phan's youtube channel, you're missing out. She gives a lot of honest life advice in addition to being a beauty guru. She is also an entrepreneur and has her own beauty brand.
The book is also very nicely designed, with colored pages and quality material for each page. Even time I looked at the book before wrapping it to give it to my friend, I was a wee bit envious....so buying a copy for myself is in the near future!
I'd recommend this book to young teenagers who are really into make-up. It's pretty and well thought out and put together. I always appreciate it when books like this also delve into holding onto you're integrity and reputation. She does touch on the fact that as much fun as make-up it's real confidence and personality that makes the make-up pop.
All in all a good read, a good gift idea but pretty generic stuff.
