Publisher Comments:

Throughout the world, every country has age-old, time-tested secrets that women use for looking and feeling beautiful.  Shalini Vadhera, celebrity make-up artist and internationally recognized beauty expert takes you on an adventure — to Europe, Asia, Africa, the United States, South America, Australia and beyond - revealing secrets for luxurious hair, glowing skin, and more.

 

Passport to Beauty features unique, yet simple beauty tips and techniques as well as instructions for creating cleansing masks, exfoliation blends, and moisturizers for hair and body.  Learn how women around the world stay beautiful:

·        turn back the hands of time with a white clay mask like Australian beauties do

·        refresh your complexion with white tea - an ancient Chinese anti-aging secret

·        use coconut oil for glossy, shimmering hair as South Asian women have done for centuries

A beauty treatment and make-over with an exotic flair is only as far away as your local grocery store - learn how to unleash the beatifying power of yogurt, lemon, olive oil, honey, and other surprising ingredients.  Additionally, Shalini Vadhera will introduce you to the secrets of spices, natural remedies, and spa treatments from around the globe.

 

And once you've got your skin and hair looking wonderful, Shalini Vadhera dips into her bag of international beauty tricks and reveals a multitude of techniques for selecting and applying make-up and always looking your absolute best. 

 

No matter your latitude or longitude on the globe, by using the information in this book you can truly become a global goddess!

Review:

"Globe-trotting celebrity makeup artist Vadhera's approach to world-wise beauty is simple: if something tastes good, why not put it on your face? Organized into fun jaunts in each continent, Vadhera kicks off her world tour with makeup tips borrowed from European sisters who 'aren't afraid to use a colorful palette to make a statement.' It's refreshing (if not exactly groundbreaking) that Vadhera uses a 'less is more' philosophy, emphasizing the power of deep sleep over heavy foundations and concealers. Her tour of the East includes the assertion that sake is an 'all-around miracle worker' for skin, and insists that readers add a cup of the rice wine to a hot bath for 'whole-body detoxification.' Even if few blushing brides will be brave enough to faithfully recreate the author's 'Indian Bridal Glow Mask' that boasts chickpea flour, turmeric and almond oil, 'Jacqueline's Okra Hydrating Mask' at least bears the promise of a few relaxing moments despite what the author concedes is a 'slimy consistency.' Continuing a world tour with brief stops in Australia, the Americas and Africa (to tout those notorious elixirs of beauty-butter and brewed peel of quince fruit), Vadhera proves herself a fun-loving guide to culinary cosmetics."

This is the best beauty book I've read! Not only does it gives you tips for good skin by using natural products, but it also gives you tips about makeup, dieting, what to take and use when traveling... and the best part is, the tips are from around the world!
