About the Author

Alice Hart-Davis is an award-winning beauty journalist who writes for many publications including the Daily Telegraph and the Evening Standard.

I was given this book for my daughters, and we have all been reading it, I think it is inspired debunking the myths of beauty with really good down to earth advice and fun things to do too! I have bought 10 copies for all those presents I will need coming up to Christmas. Brilliant.

Fantastic book. Content is just wonderful and perfect for girls who are ready to explore make up and want to find out more about how to look after their bodies. I loved all the visuals from the wonderful pictures of the 'girls' to the step-by-step guides. It covers everything and is definitely going to be a girlie teeny bible and will make an wonderful Xmas gift.

This book has opened up a whole new world as to how teens look and see beauty - and the beauty industry.
I love that daughter Molly is a co-author as it makes the whole book seem more official with her imput as well as her mum!

If they have read this thoroughly, you should have less problems with your teenagers' and tweenagers' understanding of how to deal with the alarming bombardment of the beauty world. Hart-Davis is a seasoned beauty journalist, not given to falling for hype, and she has turned her expertise to the task of answering her daughter Molly's questions about everything from toes to hair and back again. It's packed with practical advice, and reminded me of when we had time for the happy hours spent getting ready for parties with friends - face-packs, mutual manicures, too much scent - almost invariably more fun than the party itself. The pictures, of Molly and her friends, are refreshing and sweet. These are real girls with nice soft tummies and radiant, make-up free faces.

And this is NOT puritanical, the seductive pleasures of make-up are not avoided - something that appeals to most women of any age. As we are daily presented with images of teenage girls as either skeletally thin on a catwalk, or precociously covered in slap and dressed like Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver, it is soothing to the maternal heart to have our own experience of our teens reinforced. Perfect Christmas present - I suggest you order it for all your daughters and god daughters, nieces and protegees, who fall in the age range 10 - 15.

I wish that I'd had a guide like this when I was a young teenager. From hair, to make-up and skin care - it's a must have. Would highly recommend!!

I bought this book for my 12 year old niece who has just started experimenting with make-up. She's not a big reader so I wanted something without too much writing. This book provides a lot of information through captions and photos so it was idea.

Format: Paperback
I bought this for my daughter (age 9 but with friends all age 10) on the basis of the 5 star reviews. One reviewer recommended this book for age range 10-13. I would say this was not a book for pre-teens. I'm glad I read it through first as it has a section which recommends the contraceptive pill for acne. The make-up looks were also a bit too "glam" for younger girls. I would say this was definitely for an older teenager.
