Are you interested in improving your appearance? If you are, are you interested in learning what types of makeup is best for you, as well as how to properly apply it? If you are, you may have turned to the internet or to fashion magazines, but have you ever thought about buying a beauty book? If you haven’t or even if you have, you may be wondering whether or not beauty books are really worth the money.
When it comes to determining whether or not beauty books are worth the money, there are a number of important factors that should be taken into consideration 白樺茸. For instance, beauty books come in a number of different formats. If you are looking for something in particular, like how to properly apply and remove makeup, you may be able to find a beauty book that specializes solely on those tasks. Beauty books that are right to the point and contain the information that you are looking are the best and they are definitely worth your money.
In addition, when trying to determine if beauty books are worth the buy, you will want to individually examine each book that you are interested in buying. Books may cover the same topics, but the information inside of them may be presented in different ways. For instance, if you were looking to buy a beauty book that outlined the proper ways to apply makeup, you likely want to see drawings or pictures; right? Just so you know, not all beauty guides contain detailed pictures or drawings. That is why it is important that you learn as much as you can about a beauty book before deciding to buy one.
Although the beauty book or books that you would like to buy are important in determining if the book or books are the worth your money, so is the location in which you buy them from. You should know that beauty books can be found at an unlimited number of different locations. For starters, you can buy beauty books from your local bookstores, beauty supply stores, department stores, and fashion stores. In addition to storefront locations, you can also buy beauty books from a number of online retailers. You will want to think comparing prices first to ensure that you are getting the best deal or at least to make sure that you aren’t being overcharged.
If you are interested in buying a beauty book, but you are also on a tight budget, you may want to think about buying used books. There are a number websites, including online auction websites, where you can buy used books, including used beauty books. Also, if you like to attend yard sales or book sales, you may want to think about keeping your open for beauty books. Yard sales, thrift stores, and online auction websites often allow you to get a used book for fifty or even seventy-five percent off the normal asking price.
The decision as to where you want to buy a beauty book from, as well as which book you would like to buy is yours to make. With that in mind, however, it is important to make sure that you know exactly what you are buying. Just buying a beauty book without skimming through the book first or reading online reviews is almost always a surefire way to be met with disappointment or even end up wasting your money. Most superficially, beauty as in appearance and size. It was interesting how Smith mentioned each woman’s size, the women’s own view of beauty, as well as making some comments to what society call beauty. I thought it was intriguing how the African/ black women all had different view on size and beauty according to, if you like, how white they are on the inside. That is, the more ethnically connected, the less that woman was inclined to value being skinny, having big breasts and round bottom, as beautiful. Kiki, the main female character was obese yet constantly being described as being beautiful, even by other women. The beauties in the paintings referred to in the book would be judged as obese by today’s society. Yet these paintings are the lifetime works of men, yet more men devote a life time to study. They are valued by today’s society, in the millions. How conflicting and incongruous. What is the standard of beauty would society have us believe?
There is the idea of “beauty” being innocence. In the story, Levi was taken by the plight of the Haitians and poverty in general. Despite being a middle classed suburbana teenager, he found himself fighting, even, in the end, potentially sacrificing his future, for a people whom, superficially, have nothing in common with. It was purely recognising that those in poverty were made of the same essence as himself. That was sufficient “glue” to stick him to them. He has no other redeeming quality, yet, I thought his naivety beautiful. How many of us can give up so much, for something so distant.
Next I come to the beauty of strength. If i had written this book and called it On Beauty, it would be because of Kiki. Obese. Black. Menopausal. How does a woman, whose belly hangs over the elastics of leggings, that spreads beyond the handles of a seat, be beautiful? By being kind, generous, genuine. She is the mother – to her children, her husband and her friends. In putting the needs of others in front of her own, she is the “looker – after-er”. Perhaps it is this reason she forgave her husband’s infidelities. Yet a genuine entitlement to being herself led her to both sense and express the betrayal and disappointment she felt. Yes, “entitlement to be yourself”. I really liked that expression. One needs to be taught that we are all entitled to be ourselves. It is a God given right. Otherwise He would not have made us the way we are. Because we are allowed to be ourselves, we are allowed to be possessive of the love of our lives, and feel hurt and jealousy. It is something I have yet to learn myself. I live in the shadow of what others deem beautiful. It is the root of my problem. Maybe that is why I know, at least on the intellectual level, that i am not beautiful.
