Manila Speak, Make Up (Your Life Guide to Beauty Style and Success–Online and Off) by Michelle Phan

December 1, 2014

“Another celebrity make-up book” was the sum total of my response the first time I came across the announcement that Michelle Phan was writing a book for Penguin Random House. Happily, the initial impression was 100% off the mark. Unlike other make-up books, this book does NOT show you how to flick liquid eyeliner to look like Adele’s signature cat eye or to contour and highlight to look like Kim Kardashian in ten steps. For the uninitiated, Michelle Phan is a YouTube sensation with gazillion followers. Her instructional videos garner enough views to make PSY, the Gangnam guy, green with envy. Beauty style makeup.

While Michelle Phan can now be considered a certified card-carrying celebrity, her story is hardly that of an overnight success. Born in Boston to Vietnamese parents who fled their native country in a boat, she recalls a life marked by struggles to fit in and to get by growing up. At one point, her mother worked fifteen-hour shifts at a nail salon, her brother juggled two jobs and she was working as a hostess at a Thai-Chinese restaurant. The family was so hard up that they lived in a one-room apartment, kept their clothes in boxes since they had no furniture, and slept on sleeping bags on the floor.

Years of uploading tutorial videos paid off big time when an offer to become Lancome’s official video makeup artist came knocking. This was eventually followed by an offer to partner with its sister company L’Oreal for her own makeup line. Michelle writes of this turn of events: “Me, the person who was turned down for the job at the Lancome counter in Dillard’s. How many ways are there to say yes?”

And this is how the book ended becoming such a pleasant surprise for me. Michelle Phan, in her own words, narrates her journey to a better life. In eleven chapters, she shares the requisite skincare, makeup, hair, nails and fashion tips and tricks. And because of her status as an internet star, who better to dispense digital dos and don’ts? She also gives career advice (interning, job hunting, interviewing) and etiquette lessons (table manners, dress codes, shaking hands, making conversation and thank you notes).

Make Up (Your Life Guide to Beauty Style and Success – Online and Off) by Michelle Phan is on sale October 10, 2014. It’s now available in local bookstores.
