Product Description

Book Description

A comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide to natural everyday and special occasion make-up.

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.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book a few months after it was first published in the UK, and I am still using it for reference now. The advice in it is still relevant for today, it really hasn't dated, unlike many beauty books that you'll now find in charity shops and boot fairs!
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. ;)

Format: Paperback
This book is amazingly modern. It tells modern women to look and feel good about themselves in our ever more demanding lifestyle. If you really want a complete beauty bible, this one is THE book to buy. Bobbi Brown explains in her straight-to- the-point and practical words on how to do the right make up for the right occassion, as well as lots of advice on healthy diets, excercise, and a lot more. The book is full of tips on how to do the right things on make up, and lots of pictures of many of the world's top beauties whom Bobbi herself has made up. There is only one word to describe this book: BEAUTIFUL. Like the make up artist herself.

I bought this book after reading the reviews. However I was very disappointed. I found it extremely patronising with very little good advice. All the make-up ideas seemed very old fashioned(eg avoid " frosted " make-up) so there were no new ideas about updating your image. In fact it seems to be a huge book with very little content.
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!

Bobbi Brown is great, when i first heard that she has had a number of books out, i thought i'll get one and see what its like. She starts of by saying through her experiance as a makeup artist she heard so many insecurities from such beautiful women that it was disturbing the lack of confidence women have, she speaks about how to take care of your skin, body through common sense, like eating well, drinking plently of water, knowing whats best for your skin type what to avoid like smoking and too much sun exposure, She believes in taking the features on your body and face that you are not confortable with and realising there your strongest features, like a prominent nose, being very tall, she teaches women to embrace these unique qualities, she talking about the pros and consof plastic surgery, makeup for different skin types,and different skin tones such as african american skin and much more. She believes in enhancing your own beauty and not trying to change your face with makeup, ilove how she doesnt try to sell you any products and just tells you whats good for you, even for different ages such as over 50's.She talks about makeup for cancer patients.She is a great influence on women.Her goal is to bring out the best in you, instead of trying to change you, theres so much more in this book that i have been so impressed with it, i have bought another book an plan to get them all.

I use this book as a resource for when I do conventional beauty or lifestyle shoots. It doesn't offer a great deal for the aspiring fashion make up artist but is good for anyone considering a career as a bridal make up artist or image consultant as it offers good basic information that would suit a less avante garde market.

Dated make-up but good for those studying Make-up artistry or for those just interested in make-up.
