You may have figured out by now that I am not a make-up person (I never have it on in any of the pictures I post with my reviews) and Dulce Candy Ruiz is very much a make-up person, so we're almost polar opposites. This fact had me a little worried going into this book, but I shouldn't have been. Mostly, this book isn't about make-up, at least not directly.
For me this book read a lot like a more mature version of Miley Cyrus's Miles To Go, especially the beginning where Dulce Candy talks about her childhood. Although the two childhoods were vastly different, the tone of voice while discussing them was similar. It was very conversational and I was very intrigued.
When the book moved on to the business aspect of Dulce Candy's life, I started to lose interest. It was still the same conversational tone, but it wasn't as engaging for me. In spite of that, I felt like the author made some very great points about life in general; a person doesn't have to dream of YouTube stardom to benefit from them.
I would recommend this book most to teenage girls; girls who can still benefit from the lessons of Dulce Candy's life before the make some of the same mistakes she did growing up. Girls that have likely been following her, or Jenna Marbles, or some other fashion and beauty vlogger. Not only would they relate better than I did, but they have more to learn too.
