The book “Skin Deep: Women on Skin Care, Makeup, and Looking Their Best” by New York Times beauty writer Bee Shapiro starts with an interesting premise that we are all aware of: women, more than ever, are feeling the pressure to look their best. They’re bombarded with images of perfect-looking celebrities and models, and they’re constantly being told that they need to improve their appearance.
You’ll find applicable beauty advice
Shapiro gets the world’s most photographed people to share their most intimate rituals, the ones they perform when the cameras are off and the makeup is down. Including 10 new subjects, alongside favorites like Gwyneth Paltrow, Priyanka Chopra, and Anna Kendrick, plus sidebars and photography, “Skin Deep” takes an intriguing look at contemporary beauty. You’ll find here entertaining celebrity interviews and the author’s own look at popular trends. That combo is definitely something where good and applicable beauty advice lays.
Why do you have to read it?
In this collection of more than 40 columns, New York Times beauty writer Bee Shapiro gets the world’s most photographed people to share their most intimate rituals: daily skincare regimens, opinions on makeup, hair care, diet and exercise, and the way beauty has evolved for each person over the course of his or her life.
The book contains a lot of helpful information on skincare, makeup, and other beauty tips. And here’s what others say about it.
This was a really interesting read. As someone who is fascinated by skincare, it was cool to hear from some of my favorite celebrities about the products that they use and how they have found their “look.” If you’re a skincare or makeup junkie, I would definitely recommend checking this out!
Found it interesting to read about the everyday pieces of the people she interviewed. There was a good range of different people.
Absolutely loved this book! If you’re a makeup/skincare/hair fanatic then you would love this book. Each page is a different woman in the public eye (celebrities, makeup artists, beauty editors, etc) giving you a rundown of what they use, love, and a little bit about their take on beauty and fitness. If you’re hesitant to go on into the gloss website and if you like the way their celebrity articles are told then you would love this book bc it’s told the exact same way. Highly recommend it for a fun read!
Thanks for the recommendation. It’s on my list 🙂
