This book was not a disappointment. I was particulary pleased because it's written for people with darker skin tones in mind and as Asian skin tends to be unique, the various tips and advise really come in handy. What I really liked was the advise the make-up artists gave on the kind of colours e.g.on eye make-up/lip colour to use. I'm in my mid 30's and have been using make-up for the last 20 odd years, but I realised that I still had a lot to learn when it came to correct application. I've bought so many expensive products only to realise that the colours don't match my skintone, this book will definately help me to avoid those expensive mistakes. On the whole the book is very well written and I would recommend it to all Asian women without hesitation!
