The World's Best Kept Beauty SecretsThe World’s Best Kept Beauty Secrets by Diane Irons

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Diane Irons’ The World’s Best Kept Beauty Secrets, an astounding health, beauty, and styling reference guide first published in 1997, is a precise must-read for the beauty passionate in every woman.

It had been in the summer of 1997, two weeks after its release, to be exact, that I checked this exceptionally inspirational and exceedingly knowledgeable self-help guide out of a Chicago Public Library in order to obtain a feel for its contents. And soon after returning it (a few days later), I had decided that the large paperback deserved a place among my reference guides, and visited a Borders bookstore to procure my very own personal copy.

The beauty-based guide had been one of my most fun purchases at the time. And after completing the edition, I advanced to compose a special review in honor of its awesome proficiency and admiring detail. However, despite my high and low search efforts, I unfortunately cannot locate said analysis today. My conjecture? I perhaps stored the review away with a small batch of others in my secondary city, and neglected to bring them back with me to my primary city.

So, for the sake of recognizing this joyful and seriously amazing health and beauty reference, I will say that, to this day, the work is still highly entertaining, educational, and recommended. And it is not a publication that any true beauty buff should deprive herself of.

Five freely shared stars.

Aside from her life as a public figure with dual careers in entertainment as a multi-genre songwriter/composer in the music industry, and as a casting director of feature films in the motion picture industry, Cat Ellington also moonlights in the art world as a professional art model, and in the field of literature as an author of expressive poetry. In her private life, on the other hand, Cat Ellington, founder of the blog 'Reviews by Cat Ellington', is an impassioned bookworm who loves to both read and review novels of literary fiction and nonfiction--hence her adored leisure as an artistic member of the two social cataloging sites, Goodreads and NetGalley.
