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?

Fans of Zoella's GIRL ONLINE will fall right into the world of this YA DEVIL WEARS PRADA and stay hooked from the first blush to the last glossy kiss.

I'm Beth, and I write contemporary young adult fiction that always includes the following elements: fame, makeup, and television. I graduated from Long Island University with a degree in print and electronic journalism, but the real highlight of my college years was interning for Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon.

A few summers ago I developed an addiction to YouTube makeup tutorials. I started subscribing to a ton of beauty gurus and would proceed to try out their “Easy Plum Smoky Eye!” or “Super Natural and Soft Spring Look with a Hint of Foundation, Concealer, Powder, Contour, Highlight, Liquid Liner, Blush, and Bronzer!” tutorials and inevitably fail. But watching these videos and trying out the looks inspired me to pen a story about a beauty guru.
