Vlogging is fast becoming one of the most popular interests on the internet. Millions of teens tune in to watch beauty vloggers and what they have to say. Two of the huge stars in this industry have recently brought out books on beauty.
Fleur de Force’s The Glam Guide sets out to share with us her essential collection of tips and advice for looking wonderful and feeling truly stylish. Fleur de Force’s book is filled with helpful advice on subjects from hair to health in a prettily illustrated paperback.
Tanya Burr’s Love, Tanya is a thicker hardback which is somewhat more glossy and full of bright pictures of Tanya. Tanya Burr’s book covers many of the same topics but more extended and with an added two more chapters on her life growing up.
An element in Love, Tanya that The Glam Guide does not have are ‘Tanya’s Top Tens’ where she gives her top tips or items to buy related to that section. I found this really helpful because then you can know what products she specifically recommends.
I did however find Fleur de Forces book more useful overall because she includes many handy tips and tricks such as how to stop your rings turning your fingers green and where you should contour your cheekbones, whereas Love, Tanya only tells you the way she does it and what products she uses.
Both of these books include big sections on life and happiness which I think is a really important subject for teenagers to read about as many suffer from depression and anxiety. Tanya Burr herself suffers with anxiety and her chapter on confidence and happiness is really insightful and helpful to read.
These two books have many similarities but there are differences. Love, Tanya is much more of a glossy keepsake book, with a lot more about the author within it. The Glam Guide is far more down to earth and basic but still has that glamorous element I love.
Both books really do show the new beauty Vlogging craze in its real element.
