I bought this book a few months after it was first published in the UK, and I am still using it for reference now. The advice in it is still relevant for today, it really hasn't dated, unlike many beauty books that you'll now find in charity shops and boot fairs!
Bobbi gives sensible tips on how to make the most of your features, how to disguise 'flaws', how to apply make up, ideas for different occasions, and tips for women of all skin colours.
The book is beautifully written, easy to follow, pleasing to the eye, with plenty of excellent quality photos. I particularly liked the section on specific facial features, the celebrities that have them, and how to make the most of/disguise them. It's an extremely useful book written in an unpatronising way without any noticeable marketing pressure. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody who is looking to buy a comprehensive beauty and make up manual.
Oh, and there's not an irritating anorexic looking model biting into an apple with a faked 'i'm so full of vitality' picture to be seen. Thankfully. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 25 Aug 2010
Bobbi Brown is great, when i first heard that she has had a number of books out, i thought i'll get one and see what its like. She starts of by saying through her experiance as a makeup artist she heard so many insecurities from such beautiful women that it was disturbing the lack of confidence women have, she speaks about how to take care of your skin, body through common sense, like eating well, drinking plently of water, knowing whats best for your skin type what to avoid like smoking and too much sun exposure, She believes in taking the features on your body and face that you are not confortable with and realising there your strongest features, like a prominent nose, being very tall, she teaches women to embrace these unique qualities, she talking about the pros and consof plastic surgery, makeup for different skin types,and different skin tones such as african american skin and much more. She believes in enhancing your own beauty and not trying to change your face with makeup, ilove how she doesnt try to sell you any products and just tells you whats good for you, even for different ages such as over 50's.She talks about makeup for cancer patients.She is a great influence on women.Her goal is to bring out the best in you, instead of trying to change you, theres so much more in this book that i have been so impressed with it, i have bought another book an plan to get them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have book for beauty addicts. 10 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This book is amazingly modern. It tells modern women to look and feel good about themselves in our ever more demanding lifestyle. If you really want a complete beauty bible, this one is THE book to buy. Bobbi Brown explains in her straight-to- the-point and practical words on how to do the right make up for the right occassion, as well as lots of advice on healthy diets, excercise, and a lot more. The book is full of tips on how to do the right things on make up, and lots of pictures of many of the world's top beauties whom Bobbi herself has made up. There is only one word to describe this book: BEAUTIFUL. Like the make up artist herself.
