SEPHORA. Ah, how that name makes my heart race, I become breathless and my eyes glaze over in pure happiness. I first discovered Sephora when I was on a business trip in Las Vegas and stumbled upon the heavenly Venetian Hotel location. That was almost 10 years ago, and since then I try and visit a store once every couple of weeks. Now in addition to their stores and beauty products there will be Sephora: The Ultimate Guide to Makeup, Skin and Hair from the Beauty Authority, hitting shelves in a couple of weeks.
Former Sephora beauty editor and current fashion and beauty journalist Melissa Schweiger has written this amazing guide that will make you feel like your have your own personal team of beauty experts, advising you on how to look and feel knockout-gorgeous every day. Each chapter shares the finest beauty tips, tricks and secrets; to quotes and advice from the movers and shakers of the industry.
I have read this book cover to cover about three times now and I think my favourite chapters are: Faking It, which recommends products and techniques to enhance our strengths and downplay those weaknesses; Secret Ingredients, that shares information on those new fancy ingredients in our beauty products, like Acai, Goji Berry and Neuropeptides; and The Future of Beauty where experts such as Maureen Kelly, Oscar Blandi, Dr. Howard Murad and Dean Factor, share their predictions for the future of health and beauty.
I definitely recommend you pick up a copy of this guide and add it to your daily beauty routine.
