The Trump Guide to Beauty

Another beauty book has just hit the market - and this one promises to reveal the secrets of pageant winners from around the world. Universal Beauty: The MISS UNIVERSE Guide to Beautyis by beauty editor Cara Birnbaum and features tips and tricks from more than 20 former Miss Universe winners (the Miss Universe pageant is owned by Donald Trump; hence the title of this post). From the publishers:

"The MISS UNIVERSE® Pageant represents the international ideal of beauty, and this unique beauty guide has the inside tips from all over the world that only members of this very exclusive club can tell. Beauty writer Cara Birnbaum and former Miss Universe winners bring together the diverse tips, insights, and secrets that have set these women apart and brought them to the pinnacle of beauty. Former title holders will share their beauty regimens as will the professionals who work with contestants to achieve the Miss Universe look. Readers with busy schedules will benefit from tips that will take them from daytime looks to ultraglamour in a matter of minutes.

Because Miss Universe is international, all races, skin tones, hair types, and body types will be included. Former title holders of different ages will address how personal care and beauty regimens change over time to continue to achieve a fantastic appearance."

Sounds like it could be good; let's hope the tips don't include putting Vaseline on your teeth, wrapping your thighs in Saran Wrap, or piling on heaps and heaps of pancake makeup! We've heard those "tips" from beauty queens way too many times. They're tired...and weird. Here's hoping that the book really does bring a fresh approach to global beauty with tips that are actually useful!
