I absolutely love this book! I am in my early 40's and only just beginning to play with make-up, I know, can you believe it!? As a teenager I always felt that I made such a hash of putting on make up and really didn't know where to begin anyway or how to choose colours to suit me. I ended up leaving it by the wayside, apart from a little mascara and lipstick/gloss from time to time and on special occasions. However, just a month or so ago I felt inspired to look into it again and asked somebody to recommend a book, to help get me started on the basics. This make-up manual by Bobbi Brown was suggested and within days I had ordered it from Amazon ..... now there's no looking back. It has greatly demystified the use of make-up for me and shown me how to build up from a strong foundation (no pun intended). It is my bible of the moment and I refer to it frequently. This would be a fabulous gift for anyone new to make up, teenage daughters, nieces, grandaughters etc or anybody who would just like a good reference guide for the basics. I am having such fun playing now, experimenting to find colours that suit me, textures, tools etc and am already improving in confidence with my make-up choices, application and on a personal level as I look in the mirror and sometimes actually love what I see! It's amazing what a little make-up can do. I highly highly recommend this book with no reservation. I must admit, Bobbi doesn't always go into as much detail as I would like. For example: I would like more pictures to show exactly how to contour the eyes, instead of a few words telling you what you can do. I have also bought Jemma Kidd's 'Make-up Masterclass' book as an additional reference book and the two seem to complement each other very well. Overall though, if I was picking one book on make-up and how to apply it, this would definitely be 'the one'.

I have never been good or got the hang of doing my makeup however in the past year or so i've taken an interest in it. My cousin bought this book for me for Christmas and I cannot rave about it enough. Although a lot of the book (probably half) contain things that are irrelevant to me ie. bridal makeup, makeup artistry, etc. I still read through them cause they contain great tips. This book is my bible! My makeup looks great and i've got all my tips out of this book. The other thing I like about this book is that they don't try to talk you into buying Bobbi Brown makeup or brushes which makes me feel like the author is genuinely trying to give makeup tips rather than just another way to convince people to buy their products. For the price I think this book is amazing and I would 100% recommend. But do bare in mind the amount of pages that you probably will not use is quite high, however, still contain many usefl tips if you take the time to read through.

...the fact that a huge chunk of this book is dedicated to people wanting to do make-up as a living ? I was really disappointed to find such a large part of the book was just a career guide for make-up artists - this isn't why I bought the book. And 'tricks of the trade' ? I'd love to know what tips there were - there was not one work-through example of how to make up someone for television/film/fashion photography, just photographs of stuff that had been done, with no explanation of how it had been done. And two pages on celebrities, so that the author could publish 15 photos of herself with her famous clients ?
The make-up advice at the front of the book was pretty good, although there are definite errors, resulting in a disjoint between what is in the picture, and what is being described in the text.
Buy this from Amazon at the cheap price, don't spend £20. I'd return my copy except it looks worn already.

I had looked at the previous reviews for this book before purchasing and was looking forward to learning something new from one of the hottest make-up artists in the industry. However, I was to be sorely disappointed when the book arrived and I had a chance to flick through it.

I had been expecting lots of hints and tips, and inspiration to help me acheive new looks or skills with my products. I suppose their were hints and tips, but I found that many of them were ones that were widely available through the bobbi brown website or internet. The make up pages seem very general and overly simplified and details were lacking in the areas that i was particularly interested in.

I think this is probably a good book for someone new to make-up, such as a teenager, and perhaps of interest to anyone looking for some light reading about how to get into the profession. But in my opinion, anyone with half a mind to look things up on the internet or 30 odd years of personal make-up experience, this is a waste of money!

I've been using make up since my early teens, so around 10 years. This book still managed to teach me things I didn't know, and I'd say I'm fairly advanced in makeup knowledge and application! It is really detailed and has pictures detailing steps for certain makeup application techniques - i.e. eyeliner and lipstick for people less acquainted with makeup!

It DOES have a good chapter or so of information on how to get into makeup artistry, but I knew that when I bought it, and it isn't a huge section of the book dedicated to it.
