Who is your favorite beauty guru? My favorite is Paula Begoun

Who is your favorite beauty guru? My favorite is Paula Begoun. She has authored a number of books on beauty and skin care and she tells it like it is with the beauty industry. If she doesn't like a product she will back up what she says with research.

Do I agree with everything that she says in her books or website? No, but that's what's I like about her, she doesn't expect you to agree with everything..she just wants you to become a fully informed consumer before you plunk down your money on skin care and beauty products.

I also like listening to her Blogtalk radio weekly broadcasts. I don't have time to listen to them live so I listen to her archived webcasts. She covers everything from plastic surgery to hair care on that show.

Paula Begoun quite funny too. If you ever get a chance to meet her in person like at a book signing -- you should go!
