the one with a review of ‘Make Up’

I’m sure you’ve all heard of or seen the girl on Pinterest who does crazy awesome make up tutorials. The girl is a genius with makeup, but after reading her book ‘Make Up’ I quickly learned she is much more.



First of all . . . I had no idea that she actually started ipsy (which as I have recently found lately is rockin’ it harder than birchbox), she has her own makeup line, and she’s an ambassador for Lancome . . . all while keeping up with her millions of followers on her youtube channel and starting numerous other adventures.

But more than that she was once struggling to make ends meet in Florida, but her family somehow made it possible for her to make it to art school . . . which made everything else possible.


Her book ‘make up’ tells her story (much better than I can) and gives life tips. Skin care tips, beauty tips, hair tips, dressing your body tips, and even tips on business, resumes, etiquette. Some of them are maybe a little young for me – at almost 30 years old – but they’re always good reminders.

And for my 20 year old cousin whom I love so much and want her to do life right . . . this is the perfect gift.

    I LOVE Michelle Phan! She’s been one of my inspirations for quite a while now. I ordered the book when it first came out but still haven’t had a chance to read it! Thank you for reminding me about it :]
