It gave me the basics of cleansing, toning and moisturising and for my skin type (as well as many other types). It also suggested makeup ranges/types to buy (Iman, Mac, prescriptives).And Which Foundations(and other makeup) to choose for your skin type and colour, furthermore what tools to have to apply the makeup as this makes a great difference).
After all of this it gave a very clear step by step guide(written and illustrated) of how to apply the make up e.g. blending techniques,keeping the makeup in place on your face (for my oily T zone) and different looks for different events and times in the day. The illustrations are great to look at,and very inspirational.
Also I was impressed that it gave different looks for different ages.
I Have copied these looks and look very natural but very different, because i have learnt so much i have adapted this information to my own style, and am very happy.
You can find a real mix of tips from skin care and moisturisers, eye shadow/eyebrows, foundation and concealer. There are also a few before and afters, which is also good as you can see the potential you can achieve.
A real help and would recommend this book to others.
The beauty of colour made me aware of all the makeup mistakes which i had been making over the years, where i was going wrong and how to correct them.
If/when Iman writes another book, I shall be one of the first people to buy it.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'll think i'll read it once again!
It is a real pleasure to look through and I have picked up some good ideas and tips on both makeup and skincare.
I do wish there was a greater variety of looks for my own skin tone. Iman does try to accommodate different ethnicities but I just think the book is too short which is a shame.
On the plus side there are step by step instructions and before and after pictures which are great! Overall I would recommend this book for beauty buffs, it is quite lovely and fairly informative.
If this is not going to help you then i dont feel anything will

It is a lovely book with all the info I was looking for. Unfortunately it did not have all the pages. But that is OK. Great price, as well.Published 22 months ago by Vitor Higino
I had high expectations for this book by Iman but was seriously disappointed. She barely touches the surface of the topics covered, some nice photos but that's all I can say. Read morePublished on 18 Oct. 2012 by penny71
