Book Cover - Title - Blurb

Book Blurb Friday #1 

I'm participating in a brand new meme, hosted by Lisa Ricard Claro over at Writing in the Buff. I'm pretty sure I understood this correctly, but if not, Lisa please let me know ASAP!

Lisa supplies a photo to be used as the book cover of an imaginary book. Those who participate are to give the book a title and to write a blurb of 150 words or less, in an attempt to entice readers to purchase the book.

       
Book Title: Beauty for Dummies

How would you like to have beautiful, long and lustrous eyelashes? What about perfect eyeliner and arched eyebrows? Beauty begins with the eyes and with the proper techniques and products, you can have those glamorous, celebrity-like eyes you've always dreamed of.

This book will show you, step-by-step, in easy to read directions, with photos and sketches, just how to get that particular LOOK you want. 

Chapters include: Where to buy colorful contact lenses. How much mascara to use for one special evening. What shade of foundation goes with your new eye color. How many layers of eye shadow should you apply.

These tips and MORE are included in this fabulous book, written and published by none other than make-up genius, Ms. Rocky Preston.
