You wouldn’t be the first, and you can be sure you certainly aren’t the last. We women today are given an incredible range of products ranging from the almost necessary to the useful to the does anyone ever wear that but, coupled with a constant bombardment of seemingly perfect and effortless beauty queens, this excess of choice quickly takes all the pleasure out of making ourselves look beautiful. Well, if you’re looking to effortlessly improve on your look and tailor your collection to your specific needs, look no further than Laura Slater’s Hollywood Beauty.
Hollywood Beauty is the quintessential beauty and make-up Bible, filled with instructions to match and conquer your look and fill you with confidence, and complete with perfectly chosen stunning photographs of all your favourite beauty icons throughout the ages. Portraits of Katharine Hepburn, Claudette Colbert, Sophia Loren and Blake Lively, among many others, grace the glossy pages of Slater’s book and provide a necessary diversity to the concepts of beauty and glamour, proving once and for all that you can be stunning with any look.
Slater walks us through painstakingly detailed illustrations of how each and every (relevant) body part of yours can be made up and fashioned to not only complement your complexion, but to bring it to even greater heights by pairing it with the likes of Jean Harlow, Carole Lombard, or perhaps Dita Von Teese – the choice is yours, and plenty of choice is certainly one thing Hollywood Beauty provides! We are thus treated, for instance, to a table detailing the ideal eyebrow, mascara, eye shadow, and eyeliner work necessary for four different types of eyes on pages 52 and 53; Slater does not do things half-way and you are guaranteed to feel ever more satisfied as you turn the pages of this book. And on a side note, that satisfaction won’t simply be coming from the content as you get to treat you fingers to a gorgeously glossy, well-finished and beautifully coloured product which mirrors the beautiful looks portrayed within. So take the extra time to read through Laura Slater’s make-up Mecca before your next trip to buy some – and be sure you’re ready for the myriad of compliments you will soon be receiving!
