Michelle Phan's inspiring self-help guide to living a beautiful life, inside and out, with advice on everything from makeup and style to career and creativity
Michelle Phan has been hooked on makeup since the first time she was allowed to try eyeliner. She saw a different person looking back in the mirror and fell in love with the sense of confidence, beauty, and empowerment it gave her. Following her passion, Michelle began filming makeup tutorials at home as a college student in 2007-one she uploaded to YouTube garnered 40k views within a week. Today, she has an empire that includes her own makeup line with L'Oreal, multiple websites, a global community of fans, and one of the most popular channels on YouTube. The video tutorials that first made her famous are on track to reach one billion total views by the end of 2013.
Now Michelle has collected her best advice, stories, and lessons into the book her fans have been asking for. It includes her trademark beauty and style tips and tutorials as well as stories from her life and advice on the topics her fans ask her about most, including exercise, diet, career, entrepreneurship, and creativity. Like Michelle's online content, the book will be beautiful, accessible, playful, and positive-at once a gorgeous keepsake for her fans, and a practical, empowering resource they will return to for advice and inspiration.
