(Thank you to the publisher and TLC Book tours for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book:

A groundbreaking celebration of ageless beauty, providing the ultimate skincare and makeup guide for women in their forties and beyond from celebrity makeup artist Riku Campo.

The first makeup guide to celebrate and support women forty and over, I Am Beauty is Riku Campo’s labor of love. Riku has worked with some of the most beautiful and recognized faces in the world, like Cindy Crawford, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Anne Hathaway. But he has always wanted to create a book honoring those women we don’t always see on the runaways and in magazines—women like his mother, whose beauty is everlasting.

I Am Beauty includes step-by-step tutorials, advice from skincare experts, and Riku’s best behind-the-chair tips every woman needs to revitalize her routine, including:

  • Day and night skincare routines that keep you fresh and beautiful, whether you’re in your forties, fifties, sixties, or beyond
  • At-home facial massages to stimulate collagen production and optimal skin health
  • Must-have everyday makeup tools
  • Choosing the right foundation for all skin tones, types, and textures
  • Tricks for modern, elegant eyebrows and keeping lipstick fresh all day
  • Eyeshadow colors and types that work best on mature skin
  • Finding the eyeglass designs that best complement your style and daily makeup

Riku also has one-on-one conversations and day-and-night makeovers with sixteen incredible women—each with her own unique style—and shares their secrets for finding beauty in all parts of life.

Comprehensive, practical, and inspiring, packed with more than 100 full-color photos, I Am Beauty is the ultimate resource for women to maintain their glow and live their most joyful, beautiful lives.

my thoughts:

Love, love, love! What a gorgeous book! I Am Beauty by Riku Campo is an essential read for women over 40 looking for tips on skincare and make-up - this book will become your new go-to beauty guide. I devoured it in one go, because I couldn't help myself. However, I am eager to sit down with it and take my time bookmarking pages that I will be re-visiting again and again. This is one book that I am excited to share with friends and family - they are going to love it to bits! It is chock full of excellent make-up tips and useful advice specifically for women over 40 - that's me! And, there are tons of awesome photographs, amazing interviews, and terrific step-by-step instructions that will inspire and motivate you to celebrate your age, beauty, and life. What a book!

I Am Beauty is fun, informative, and a must-have! This is one book that I would happily recommend to anyone and everyone looking for a beauty book that will actually provide clear, precise instructions; helpful tips; and amazing how-to illustrations. You will LOVE this book! Check it out!!

Am I gonna look like Cindy Crawford if I buy this book?! No seriously I'm always interested in skincare and this looks like a lovely glam book. Would make a good Christmas present.
