From the Back Cover
Bobbi Brown Beauty is the ultimate beauty reference. It provides all the basic techniques and information necessary for a woman to look and feel her prettiest in all of the varied situations of her life - from quick daytime makeup to the perfect look for an interview, from black-tie events to her own wedding. All the information is presented in a friendly, refreshingly nonintimidating voice. In this manual, Bobbi Brown strikes conventional thinking about beauty. To her way of thinking, there is no one "perfect" beauty standard but countless expressions of personalized beauty. Bobbi helps readers recognize their own remarkable beauty traits and develop their own natural beauty styles. She also analyzes the styles of some of the most celebrated beauties of the past - Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Onassis, Grace Kelly - and of our time - Christy Turlington, Demi Moore, and Kate Moss. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Bobbi gives sensible tips on how to make the most of your features, how to disguise 'flaws', how to apply make up, ideas for different occasions, and tips for women of all skin colours.
The book is beautifully written, easy to follow, pleasing to the eye, with plenty of excellent quality photos. I particularly liked the section on specific facial features, the celebrities that have them, and how to make the most of/disguise them. It's an extremely useful book written in an unpatronising way without any noticeable marketing pressure. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody who is looking to buy a comprehensive beauty and make up manual.
Oh, and there's not an irritating anorexic looking model biting into an apple with a faked 'i'm so full of vitality' picture to be seen. Thankfully. ;)
A lot of the book seems to be devoted to blowing her own trumpet and sucking up to her celebrity clients (it is full of Americans who I've never heard of) which is truly cringe making in parts.
However there is some good and positive advice which is basically to accept what nature gave you and make the best of it. But this book will be of very little help in achieving this!
