The book features several different areas of make-up and also skincare and how to take care of the rest of your body.Over all its more than a make up book,its a well being book aswell.The pictures and diagrams are extremely helpful and it takes into account many different races and skintones aswel as different facial shapes...such as eye shape and cheek bones.It also mentions the different types of brushes,colour toners and other types of tools one may have heard of but have never been shown how to use.I myself learned how to use liquid eyeliner from this book!.
Over all this book holds a place in my heart, as i am now training to become a make-up artist and this book i believe was the start of it all.If you are already a trained make up artist or take an active interest in make up already this book will hold very little new information (unless you are unsure about entering the profession..as this may be a great starter book like it was for me, as other professinal books are very expensive)but if you are just getting into make up or want to learn more then this is the book for you.Whatever age or colour or level of make up use you may be.As it features something for everyone.Highly recommened.
I have to disagree about the models though. When you were encouraged to find your own face and skin type, I found them too samey and difficult to distinguish. The pictures were clear, but a little drab. They did give you a wider range of looks to experiment with, but some of these did seem a little strange.
This book is really good as an all round guide, covering make up ideas, techniques, principals and also all round wellbeing. There are very useful tips, and is a good resource to keep coming back to.
I also borrowed some makeup books from the library, but the information isn't as clear and tends to promote certain brands only. I'd actually not mind some product recommendations in this book, since it has some really nice ideas, but it leaves that part to your imagination.
Great for beginners, I doubt there would be much new info for any professionals/training makeup artists.
Would definitely recommend.
