I bought this book and assembled a makeup case of products and sent them to my Grandaughter in Canada , as she was just exploring the ideas of makeup with her friends . The book was a huge hit ,Rebecca could not wait to read it all and it has become her makeup bible. When Rebecca and her friends were able to get together they shared the book and had endless fun experimenting on one another. Rebecca is able to use her makeup tastefully and she looks amazing, she has also discovered the Booby Brown videos on U -tube and of course the book is very useful for those too as a constant reference companion. Would I recommend this book ? yes, certainly ,it contains the necessary know how too ! and much more .
I've recently gotten into make up and had heard a lot about this book so decided to give it a whirl. Its rather basic, so great for beginners. Its also quite old, so the pictures look a bit 'retro' now I guess, and it doesnt cover newer makeup trends. I bought the Kindle version but would recommend the hard cover version as the hard cover version gives a better overview of the step-by-step instructions (I had a leaf through it in Waterstones the other day). I liked that it includes tips for a range of skin types and colours, as well as bridal make up. Overall, an easy to follow and entertaining read.
Arrived quickly and full of lots of hints and tips for make up artists or aspiring make up artists etc. Great for beginners, tons of information about all sorts of make up application techniques, looks, facts, background history and even skin care!
I bought this for my teenage daughter. The book is excellent. It shows her how to apply makeup for all occasions, including teenage years, and covers the importance of skin care routines etc. I would highly recommend this book.
