Book Revew: "Cosmo's Sexiest Beauty Secrets"
I recently received my copy of "Cosmo's Sexiest Beauty Secrets: The Ultimate Guide to Looking Gorgeous" in the mail.
I won it from the lovely De of Beauty Logic Blog.
It's a neat little beauty book chock full of who-woulda-thought beauty tips.
It's broken down into sections for lips, eyes, face, nails, fragrance, skin, hair and spas.
There's even a section about what beauty things guys like.
One of the things that I learned was how to properly paint a nail.
You're supposed to first apply the polish in the middle of your nail so it slides onto your nail and not into the cuticles.
Here are some other tips from the book:
-Use a toothbrush to exfoliate your lips.
-Mix honey with your body cream to make it more moisturizing.
-Squeeze half a lemon into your bath water because the juice has natural acids that will brighten your skin.
-Soak your feet in a bowl of warm orange juice for ten minutes. The acids exfoliate your skin.
Overall, this is a down-to-earth book full of simple beauty tips.
It's easy to read, has nice pictures that make for nice visuals and has awesome beauty advice.
