This book is truly excellent. From the way it is put together, the style of writing, the quality of the photography - everything has been so well considered and finished to such a high standard. It's a joy to read, but much more importantly the information is super useful, fabulously detailed and really, really effective. I would say that any aspiring make up artist, like myself, simply cannot afford to be without this book. I consider it my bible, as it absolutely does what it says on the cover - it is indeed the ultimate guide!

What a fantastic truely inspirational book for make up, would be ideal for both novices and professionals. Fantastic imagery & photography highlight the make up and techniques. Easy to follow steps make it easy to recreate the looks illustrated in the book. The book covers which tools are essential to apply make up, info and tips about false eyelashes, the shadows colour chart that illustrates which colour eyeshadows suit particular eye colours, skin prepping, bronzing etc. Easy to read and inspirational would definately recommend to all my friends. This is the best book i have ever bought! Seriously.

Format: Paperback
this book is nicely laid out and has nice nice pictures and other tips but if your not amazing at make-up already i dont suggest it. i am not awful at make-up but im not a make-up artist either and i havn't tried any of it out. Also a lot of it is not at all wearable and is the thing you see on models at photo shoots but there are some nice ideas!

Format: Paperback
This book really is the Ultimate Guide. Rae is very generous and gives you fantastic tips. I love her no nonsense approach; she is honest and doesn't try to push any particular brand (which is refreshing). I was looking for something that would help me improve my skills to achieve a proffesional finish and introduce me to more looks. I have to say that this has done the trick and friends have already commented on my skills.
Rae's step by step guides are very easy to follow, the layout is perfect and easy to read and the pictures are fabulous. This woman knows what she is talking about.
So if you are looking to really improve your skills this is the book for you, I cannot recommend it enough, buy it.

Format: Paperback
This is an incredible book, packs so much useful info into relatively little space and has many gorgeous eye looks as well as great contouring help.
It's also got a great chapter for asian eyes, and pages on different eye colours and what shadow colours look good with them, which I found really useful; although I've seen this kind of thing in other books, there's a much better, more specific range of colours and more detail in this book. It's my no1 guide for makeup, I'm a beginner to make up and it has step by step pictures and explanations, which I love.
If you can't decide between bobbi brown's new book and this, GET THIS I looked at the copy of bobbi brown's beauty rules my friend has and was so glad I got this book instead. Can't wait for rae morris' new book!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Honestly, I do like this book but I had expected a bit more.It shows a cuople of makeup looks and step by step instructions....I had expected to see different techniques on different eye shapes for example....hooded eyes,slopy eyes,protruded eyes,how to conceal problem areas,how to emphasize the good points and to hide the imperfections.
I would need a bit more tips and tricks than just a simple instruction on how to achieve these specific makeup looks...
Apart from that,it was all right....

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book some time ago and I have been using it expensively. This book is the best make up book I have ever purchased: better than Bobbi Brown (acually I do not like her techniques, too basic and dull), Jemma Kidd and more useful than Nars and Laura Mercier.
Rae goes throught the various make up techniques in detail and gives some amazing tips of the trade (from avoiding using primer and foundation, to using a gold highlighting shade on the cupid bow, how to prep the skin and eyes, how to cover blemishes and create your own exfoliator with water based cleanser and bicarb of soda). She does not try to sell any brand (even if she is beauty Director for L'Oreal Australia) and the pictures in the book are amazing - they are not retouched: what you see is what you get when you follow her advice.
The section on contouring is to die for, the best I have ever seen. I really liked the section on make up tools, on how to shape your eyebrow, on how to apply false eyelashes and pictures of the different effects. The section on eye make up is super comprehensive (it covers also asian eyes and over 40). There is a chart with the best colours for the different eye colours, in addition to metallics, enhancers and eyeliners. I am very impressed and would buy this book as a Christmas present for some friends. I have already pre-ordered Express Makeup (her next book) on Amazon!

Format: Paperback
This is a great, amazing, awsome book.
Rae Morris is beyond the artist point..i cant find words to describe her.
the structure of the book is amazing, easy to follow, looks that are actually wearable and yet stunning. I used to do always my eyes first coz i use lots of materials that fall out (glitter etc) and when i read that an actual make-up artist does that too i was amazed, coz like all my friends apply foundation first and then spent time cleaning the area around!(which for me is a waste of time plus it destroys all tha foundation work you've done). Anyway i'm now applying all of her tips, especially the eyes prepping tips coz they work amazingly.. the eyeshadow stays and stays and stays without creasing or anything all day, and i work long hours.
The loos that are in there are great, new and easy to follow except maybe 2 or 3 which will take a bit of practise but thay are so beautiful its definetly worth the try!!
I 'd definetely recommend this book, its so well structured and simple but fabulous even a new in make-up girl can follow!
Love from Greece, Myrsini Megalou
