The start of a new year offers all kinds of possibilities, like a fresh outlook on work and renewed vigor for keeping your room clean. While a lot of resolutions demand discipline, we like the idea of having a little fun, too. So on these short, dark winter days, why not use the extra time indoors to experiment with a new look or two? Perhaps try on some of the iconic beauty looks of bygone beauties?
Well you’re in luck! The Look Book: 50 Iconic Beauties and How To Achieve Their Signature Styles gives you step by step instructions how to master the iconic beauty looks you’ve always wanted. Celebrity makeup artist Cameron Cohen, who’s worked with the likes of Miley Cyrus, is featured in the book and teaches you how to master the signature styles of the stars. Learn how to achieve JLo’s glow-y skin, Audrey Hepburn’s winged eyeliner, Marilyn Monroe’s cherry red lips, Joan Jett’s smokey eyes and so much more.
Celebrity hair stylist Christopher Fulton, who’s styled the tresses of Kelly Rowland and Jessica Alba, also contributed to the book. He tells you how to style your hair from a chic Grace Kelly chignon to daring Diana Ross curls.
Since it took more than makeup and hair for these women to achieve success, you should take a moment to read about the women behind the looks. There are excerpts included for each of the 50 women that discusses their lives and life accomplishments. These legendary icons of American culture are a testament to the fact that beauty, intelligence and talent are not mutually exclusive.
How’s that for new year’s inspiration?
