The Review

As someone who had always loved makeup, it took several attempts before Hannah Martin realized she could make a career out of it.

She details her journey along with her tips and tricks in Makeup. With 17 years of experience under her belt, Hannah offers encouragement to others interested in the art of applying makeup.

I loved the emphasis on how makeup makes you feel as opposed to how you look. The author acknowledges that she’s not the best makeup artist out there, but she has a desire to share what she knows.

Not only does the author break down each component from skin prep to brushes, but she also provides a step-by-step tutorial for her favorite looks. She includes references to products common in her native England, but many of them are available internationally.

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
