Universal Beauty

Universal Beauty : The MISS UNIVERSE Guide to Beauty

There is a new beauty book on the market this week, Universal Beauty: The Miss Universe Guide to Beauty - written by Cara Birnbaum, a former Miss Universe title holder and former editor at Cosmopolitan and Allure magazines. Here is the description from Amazon:

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.


Interestingly enough, everyone’s favorite businessman, Donald Trump is the financier of the book, as the co-owner of the Miss Universe Organization. In a New York Times article this week about the launch party for the book, The Donald meets Cara Birnbaum’s father:

Ms. Birnbaum, who has never met Mr. Trump, brought her father along to the party. “He went right up to Trump and said, ‘I’m the author’s dad,’ ” Ms. Birnbaum said. “Apparently Trump had a blank expression on his face for a minute, before he said, ‘Oh, the author. Right. Congrats.’

How touching. At any rate, the book sounds interesting, let me know if you have checked it out yet!
