BOBBI BROWN'S MAKEUP MANUAL will be the only book any woman will need to look absolutely fabulous. -- Springboard
For a makeup junkie like me, BOBBI BROWN MAKEUP MANUAL is an incredible book. I have always admired Ms. Brown and her ability to apply such natural-looking makeup. Her latest book will teach you how because it is chock full of tips and advice for women of all ages. This is the only resource you will ever need for makeup. Plus, the photographs are just amazing! Trust me when I say that this book could sit out on your coffee table -- it's that beautiful.
I had so much fun going through this book last night, and I have to say that I learned a great deal. I found a lot of useful hints that I intend to implement right away; and I can't wait to go shopping for new (and correct) shades. I was impressed with how Ms. Brown offered advice for women with all types of skin types as well as women of different ethnic backgrounds. The step-by-step pictures of how to apply the various makeup make so much sense and make everything look "doable."
In addition to the everyday makeup advice, there are many helpful hints for specific situations such as bridal makeup, special-occasion makeup, makeup for teens, ageless beauty, makeup during pregnancy, and (my favorite) bad-day beauty. There is also a wonderful section on the "Artistry" of makeup including information on what it takes to be a professional artist. I especially enjoyed the section on the history of makeup, and I loved learning about the "who's who" of makeup.
