Must-have Make-up Book!!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jemma's Make-up Secrets: Solutions to every woman's beauty issues and make-up dilemmas (Hardcover)I received my copy of Jemma Kidd's latest book this morning and having thought there wasn't anything to add from her brilliant first one (Jemma Kidd Make-Up), I have been thrilled to find that this one is packed with even more beautiful pictures, step-by-step instructions and practical advice: even an experienced make-up artist will find gems of information!
The book is divided in to two sections: Part 1 'Making Make-up Work for You' which includes working with your skin-tone, best looks for different eye shapes and even recreating iconic make-up looks like Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren. Part 2: 'The Problem Solver' addresses multiple beauty & skincare concerns, including how to use make-up to look younger...perfect!! There are also 5 minute examples of a 'date' look and 'work' look to name just a couple.
Jemma has a wonderful writing style of educating women without patronising them and instead gives them the tools to use make-up with confidence. I am so impressed with this book that I plan to purchase more for my girlfriends as birthday/Christmas gifts as I know they will love it too. Highly highly recommended.
