This is a lovely book which covers the basics from makeup kit, brushes and how to choose foundation to more complex topics such as bronzing, contouring and highlighting. The images are stunning and I love the way the models' skin is left almost completely natural looking rather than being caked in foundation (you can see their freckles, for example) as I've seen in some other beauty books.

The looks in this book are intended to be less complex, speedier and generally more wearable for everyday compared to those in her previous book Makeup The Ultimate Guide, which were more dramatic.

If this is your first Rae Morris book then I'd give it 5 stars and definitely recommend buying it, but if you've purchased Makeup the Ultimate Guide already you may be disappointed with the amount of repetition of subject matter as I was, hence the 3* review.

I am a qualified Beauty Therapist, having trained in make up at college and having a passion for it at home I decided I wanted a book that covered everything. After much researching I decided to buy this book. It begins with the basics of beauty aswell as make up. It goes through tools aswell as the products themselves. In detail it then goes on to give the prep needed for the makeup base and the various products you can use. I find the eye shadow colour charts for different eye colours very helpful. After all of that it shows you how to create different looks. With a step by step and picture account of the process its very simple to follow. For anyone with lots or even no experience I would most definately recommend this book. Enjoy!

This book is a definite improvement on her last book which I also loved. It's similar to Makeup the ultimate guide. The photographs are very high quality. There's gorgeous looks for young and older women. There's a wide variety of different fun looks for makeup fans!

I bought this along with her "Makeup: The ultimate guide" because I did not know which one to choose among them.
Having them both, I am happy I did.

"Express makeup" covers many topics as the "Ultimate Guide" but boiled down to essentials, from choosing brushes, products, skincare etc. Although I refer to the "Ultimate guide" these two books are in no way related as in one complimenting the other, and they should not be judged so. "Express makeup" is a book that can stand alone and inform a woman who wants just that: express makeup.

The looks are very pretty and wearable, covering women of colour and Asian women, making me wish I had their eyes, and also various ages and styles. Really inspirational and easy to follow. I said earlier I am happy I bought both her books, because the looks here are completely different and new.

We also have colour guides for eyeshadows, depending on your eye colour. I find the idea brilliant and easy to understand and follow when you buy eyeshadow, but I have a very hard time telling the differences between some, especially the eyeliners. They just look like 5 lines of slightly -if at all- different brown-black to me. And I also find the pages a little big for my liking. But these do not decrease the rating of the book in any way.

I would say give it a try, even if you have her "Ultimate guide". The looks alone are very nice.
