Synopses & Reviews
Residing at the forefront of cool since its inception, NYLON magazine has introduced a new style into the world of fashion magazines, and changed the tone of fashion, beauty, and culture coverage. Pretty: The NYLON Book of Beauty breaks the mold again, with a stylish edge over existing beauty manuals. The magazine's beauty department, Beauty Queen, is informative, stylistically creative, entertaining, and often titillating-anything but boring. This book expands on the magazine's original brand of coverage, which goes beyond make-up application and dry step-by-steps, to give a portrait of beauty as NYLON sees it. Inspired ideas, whimsical illustrations, and cheeky text will have readers wide eyed and flush cheeked without opening a single product. Signature looks and hairstyles of legendary stars of the stage and screen will be shown, with tips on how to re-create them. There will be a run down of the greatest beauty products and scents of all time-from Chanel to Maybelline and everything in between-and inspiring collages of different modern looks, from stripped down to outrageous, to inspire readers to try something new. Pretty stands out from existing beauty books for its style, offering both information and inspiration about being gorgeous. With stunning visual design and all-new material, Pretty exudes NYLON's cool, natural glow and is an imperative accessory for anyone with style.
An innovative guide to looking good breaks the traditional mold in a collection of beauty, grooming, fashion, and style tips from the pages of NYLON magazine, offering a look at classic hairstyles and how to re-create them, a rundown on beauty products and makeup, and more. Original.
