Linda Wells, the founder and editor-in-chief of Allure magazine, has put together a book filled with the best beauty secrets, tips, and tricks that she's come across since the magazine's launch fifteen years ago. Although Allure isn't an actual teen magazine, the beauty, style, fashion, and makeup tips that it contains are perfect for anyone who wants to look their best.

ALLURE: CONFESSIONS OF A BEAUTY EDITOR is broken down into ten separate chapters, which makes it so easy to find the section you're looking for. Categories include Skin Care, Skin Problems, Face, Eyes, Lips, Nails, Haircut & Color, Hair Care & Style, Salons & Spas, and Body.

What I found truly helpful about this book was the fact that every tip, whether it be how to keep your nails looking their best or how to help problem skin, is spelled out step-by-step to help you get the results you're looking for. Sure, we'd all like to look as glamorous and beautiful as the women pictured in the book; the fact of the matter is, that with the information Ms. Wells provides, we actually can!

This is a great book for every female, regardless of age. The truth is that not everyone has the time, money, or expertise to magically look great on their own. But by using the guidelines given to us by Allure's editor-in-chief, anyone with a few minutes to spare and a copy of ALLURE: CONFESSIONS OF A BEAUTY EDITOR can look as if they just left from a day at the spa.
