Reviews

Christopher shows women how to reveal that amazing inner beauty with techniques you can actually do yourselves." --Mark Montano, Host of TLC's Ten Years Younger
Great information, artfully delivered! Listen to Christopher and you'll look smashing right into your nineties--and feel wonderfully confident the whole way.' --Leah Feldon, Author of Does This Make Me Look Fat? Hopkins, known as The Makeover Guy," explains fashion dos, don'ts and oh-no-she-didn'ts for women in the "second act" of their lives. A quiz helps the reader identify which of six "Image Profiles" suits her tastes ("Casual," "Romantic," "Innovative," etc.); clothes, hair and makeup tips follow accordingly. Hopkins is encouraging and helpful: he does not simply tell women to clean their closets of any unsuitable clothes. He provides a checklist of "what you'll need," a 10-step to-do list and a questionnaire to determine which clothes to keep and which to toss. Benefiting from this book requires a certain amount of dedication-this is no quick-fix beauty mag article. There is even a "revival guide" journal in the back where readers can mark down outfits that worked or didn't work, collect contact information on their personal "beauty team" and keep track of daily, weekly and monthly beauty tasks. ... But his appearances on Oprah, the book's attention to detail and some astounding before-and-after photos attest to Hopkins's expertise. Publishers Weekly (May 2008)
Hopkins, known as the Makeover Guy and owner of reVamp! salonspa in Minneapolis, balances encouragement and blunt honesty in this beauty guide. He stresses the importance of remaining current (not trendy) and age-appropriate, beginning with a chapter on 'Expressing the Authentic You.' Hopkins pays special attention to issues associated with aging, such as wrinkles, thinning and graying hair, and 'Working with a Second-Act Body.' Much of the advice feels old-fashioned, though in a good way. For example, he advocates foundation garments and steers readers away from showing their midriffs or too much cleavage. While Hopkins advises readers on ways to use hair care and makeup to their advantage, he doesn't shy away from cosmetic surgery. There should be demand for his guide, as it follows Charla Krupp's best-selling How Not To Look Old. Recommended for larger public libraries or for those where beauty and fashion titles circulate widely.Library Journal (July 2008)
