SO MUCH MORE THAN A BEAUTY BOOK - by Dale (Kindle Edition)
I love this book so much. First of all, who doesn't want to know the secrets from the faces we admire on a daily basis? Shelley's down to earth approach gives you a step by step guide on how to get the look that you want not only in pictures but your day to day life. She leads you on the journey to embrace your "gorgeousness" from the inside out. I love getting the "inside scoop" on how models get their flawless look. There are soooo many great ideas in this book from determining your face shape by using your lipstick and a mirror to creating your "go-to" pose for photographs!! Congrats Shelley ... you have reminded us that true beauty does come from within but you have also shown us how to take the gifts God gave us and make the most of them!!

Fabulous advice! - by Kirin Christanson ( paperback)
This book is great! It offers easy (and really cheap - or free) solutions to take your best photo ever. I've been in the beauty/modeling world for over 15 years and I learned lots of new things. By making small changes suggested in the book, people are really noticing something is different. And the shaving tips (not your legs!) make a HUGE difference!

At 30 ... - by GB Thomas (Kindle Edition)
As my 30th birthday nears, I found that I was still painting myself up as if I were still 16. I needed some guidance, badly, and I got a great send off on my journey with this book. It's great for women who are finally being introduced to new modern ways to look good. Until I read it I had no idea I had an oval face, I mean I never thought of it as oval. I learned more about my skin needs and ways to protect it amid all the things done to make it more presentable. I got wise to some interesting tricks that I have been able to integrate into my routine and wonderful tips on how to be lovely in photos. It is a very helpful book and if I had the cash I would buy it for all my friends still stuck in 1999.

A great little read! - by Missim ( paperback)
This book was well written for a first-time author. Goodstein has a positive, down to earth attitude that is encouraging. She's put a lot of thought and personal experience into each chapter. She helps you to be aware of important factors such as: hair, make up, lighting, facial expression and body positioning. Her instruction is easy to understand and the book includes helpful photographs to illustrate her points. She even has a few interesting tips that are usually not discussed in beauty magazines! It's a good read for anyone wanting to improve their photogenic quality or understand the basics of digital photography! I'm ready for my close up!
