Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual: For Everyone from Beginner to Pro
This is the book for you if you are looking to know more about products and how they work on your face/body.
Lots of other reference books are divided by feature: large eyes, fair skin, brunette, slender mouth, etc. This is all well and good but for me I would only read that parts that apply to me and, therefore, much of the book is left untouched. This book is divided by product: moisturizers, eyeliner, lip colo ...more
A moins que vous ne vous appeliez Lisa Eldridge, ce livre sera toujours utile !
Description des produits, des pinceaux, des tutoriels clairs en photos... C'est un plaisir à feuilleter.
Pour autant, il ne s'agit par d'une pub géante pour la marque de Bobbi Brown (d'ailleurs elle recommande régulièrement des produits concurrents via ce livre), ni une incitation à vider votre compte en banque chez Sephora.
C'est plutôt le contraire car même si vos tiroirs ne débordent pas de fards à paupière turquoise ...more

I really liked the LIFESTYLE section and it's so amazing that there's at least one beauty book that has this.
Totally absorbed in the book and have learnt so much. I love it.

I love make up and going round the shops, infact it is difficult not to buy things and get carried away.

I’ve increasingly become interested in makeup. In high school, I was more of a tomboy. Really insecure with my body image, I was more about hiding myself than enhancing myself. But after starting to workout several years ago and finally getting to a weight that I was happy and content with, I finally found a love for myself, my body, and enjoyed dressing myself up clothing wise and makeup. My aunt taught me how to apply my makeup at the age of thirteen—when my parents finally allowed me to start...more

I thought this book would give me step by step instructions on how to apply makeup. It fell flat. It gives general instructions. If u are a beginner, don't waste your money.

It covers skin care, make-up tools, basic advices. Photos are really nice, but not always covers given topic.
I did not like part about diet, fitness, etc. In my opinion there are books covering this topic and this one is not right one.
The part for profesionals was quite boring, as there was mainly advices that are proper for every profesion, like "be nice", "work hard".
I liked historical fa ...more
