ABOUT THE BOOK (Publisher Website)
Beauty tips and the secret of true inner beauty are revealed in this interactive, inspirational, fun addition to the Faithgirlz!™ line.
Now that you’re not a little girl anymore you’d love to move beyond cheap lip gloss into the high-fashion world of smudge-proof lipstick, lash-lengthening mascara, and that flirty eye shadow advertised in magazines—because that’s what it takes to be beautiful these days, right? Hang on a sec! One step at a time. In this book you’ll learn not only how to wield those makeup brushes but also how to take care of yourself as you change, from keeping your skin and hair glowing and healthy to finding your own unique style. And you’ll get in on the BIG secret: that true beauty is revealed as you grow closer to God and learn to wow the world by just being you.
I love this book! If I had a daughter this age, this would be required reading ;) I think it's so important to really teach our girls to focus more on inner beauty than outer beauty. There is so much pressure from the media and peers to focus on just the opposite. I love how this book focuses on girls having a strong faith in God, as well as teaching them a little bit about makeup and inner beauty. I'd highly recommend this book for anyone who has a pre-teen girl in their life!
