Book Looks: At First Blush – Beth Ellyn Summer

Title: At First Blush (2017)
: Beth Ellyn Summer
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Who would have thought that a teenager could have a successful career creating makeup tutorial videos on YouTube? For Lacey Robbins, this dream has been her reality. An up-and-coming YouTuber, she has thousands of fans and can’t wait for the day when her subscriber count reaches the one million mark. And when she is offered a high school internship at On Trend Magazine, she figures that this could be the make it or break it moment.

But sometimes your dream job isn’t all that it seems. Her editor is only interested in promoting junk products, and her boss in the Hair and Makeup department introduces her to the larger world of makeup artistry, making her wonder if making tutorials online is all she is meant to do. To top it all off, when the magazine’s feature subject , musician Tyler Lance, turns his broodingly handsome smile her way, falling for him could mean losing her fans, forcing her to make a decision: her YouTube life or her real life?

Read an excerpt…

I’m not totally sure when talking to myself stopped being weird. Maybe when half a million people started listening.

“You’ll want to use a large, fluffy brush and place your bronzer in the E3 formation. Only place it where the sun would naturally hit.”

My practiced hand guides the brush from my left temple, inside the hollow of my cheek, and blends down onto my jawline, then mirrors the motion on the other side. I check the viewfinder to make sure I’m staying in frame. “Next I’m going to blend out the eyeliner. This is a fresh summer look. We’re not going for smoky, just soft.”

Have you read this book yet? 🌷

  1. This is an amazing look Reg, 😀 I love the jumper because it looks so cosy, and the shoes are really cute as well! The book sounds quite interesting as well, have you read it yet or is it still on your to-read list? 🙂


  2. I just want to steal this outfit and slot it into my wardrobe, especially since finding some quality black jeans is near impossible right now with this jegging craze in full effect. Can’t say I’ve heard of the book and I don’t typically go for “famous character” books but you never know, I might give it a shot.


    • OMG I KNOW re: finding quality black jeans. What is up with the world?! I’m not a huge fan of jeggings either. 🙈

      I haven’t read the book either so I can’t recommend it personally, but I hope to give it a shot too! Famous characters don’t generally jive with me, but the premise is unique enough.
