True story…I’ve been taking selfies before selfies were “a thing.” If you left your camera laying around, more than likely you found selfies of me making insane faces. Today, selfies are totally normal. So much in fact, that my good friend and makeup artist extraordinaire Luis published #beautiful by Luis Casco—50 Easy-to-create selfie-ready beauty looks. And I’m going to give you a chance to win your very own autographed copy!
A few weeks ago, I was invited to the launch party of Luis’ new book and I was beyond excited for him. Not only does this man have an amazing heart, but he’s incredibly talented. You may recognize him as the lead makeup artist on this season’s Project Runway. He’s worked with tons of celebs, models, fashion designers, and photographers around the world for over 20 years. He’s also on Project Runway All Stars and the Beauty Expert on the fourth season of Mexico’s Next Top Model. So, let’s just say he knows his beauty.
#beautiful was inspired by Luis’ own experience with documenting his life and his work via his smartphone, which included taking selfies on set with models. He wanted to share easy-to-create makeup tips and give you advice on your location, surroundings, and what you want or don’t want in your selfies. You’ll also find tips on lighting and suggestions for the best angles for your face.
In the book, there are professional before-and-after shots of models. But, all of the finished selfie looks are real selfies taken by the models themselves! I love that about this book! I also love the fact that the tips are easy to follow. Nothing too difficult to help you achieve any of these 50 beauty looks.

Just so you know, when I was at the launch party I asked Luis if I could grab an extra copy of the book for a giveaway. Not only did he say yes, but he also gave me an additional copy in Spanish to give away! And he autographed them both. Enter below to win your copy signed by Luis himself!
