When this arrived in the post I chastised myself for buying yet another beauty book on a whim. But, I was pleasantly surprised.
I've tried to figure what "season" colouring I am before, but none seemed to fit. This book is different. There are six colour groups (light, deep, warm, cool, clear, soft), all with two further sub-categories. Each category has clearly laid out palette of 30 colours to suit your complexion, with 12 further shades in your subcategory, a guide for choosing make-up & a brief demonstration on putting it all together.
I also like that the models they use though out the book are ordinary women you'd meet on the street.
The second half of the book has an excellent guide on dressing for your body shape (I've bought Gok Wan's book, but this one chapter is far better), a guide to finding your style personality (creative, dramatic, romantic, classic, natural, city chic), making the most of your face shape & putting it all together.
An excellent guide for anyone who's unsure about what basic colours & styles suit them. Geared at a 30+ market I think, but I'm 25 & loved it.
