acceptable price, only about US$15 in Aksara, Jakarta
good eye make up idea
great presentation
pretty easy to navigate

(-) barefaced models. some of them are desperately need of concealer. I know it's all about eye make up. but please... we don't leave home only wearing eyeshadow. so why should the models?

not blend nicely. I'm not an expert. but seeing some of the pictures make me feel wondering wether Mason do it in hurry or in purpose. :(

some poor pics quality :(

great eye make up ideas

Shelves: nonfiction, makeup
With the exception of the look on the cover, I was completely unimpressed and have seen much better work on bloggers and normal girls. The makeup Linda uses (her own brand) is unpigmented and surprisingly, her blending skills are not up to par. The looks range from uncreative and boring to poorly executed to flat out stupid (this is coming from a girl unafraid to wear bright pink shadow to work). Thankfully this was a library book and I got to promptly return it. It wasn't even worth the little ...more

This Midwestern lass's bathroom drawer holds a clutch of Bobbi Brown eyeshadows in colors running the gamut from Wheat to Oat to Cream. Upon hitting the big two-nine, I realized that I had at least one year to rival the fresh-faced everyday young ladies in this book, and therefore a year or so to borrow their mustard-yellow eyeliner, fuchsia highlights and indigo liners. The looks demonstrated clearly in this book are unusual but flattering combinations of colors and shapes; I'm grateful to the ...more

Terrible, misleading cover photo and title (50 makeup looks for glam lids and luscious lashes) only 2 pg on lashes with minimal instruction. Felt like reading a book from the 90s, minimal or bright and poorly blended, did not look like Profesional work esp someone of high credentials. I understand the point of the book was eyes but the models full face was far to plain to aprichiate the eye makeup. Especially with the fashion these days with the standard false lash or at least better applied mas ...more

LOVE this book. Linda is awesome. One of my favorite parts about makeup is playing with shadows. Linda breaks it down for you from simple to dramatic to crazy. She isn't afraid to play and this book is simple with large pics and diagrams so you can see just what she's done.

Eye make up is my beauty weak spot and the one area I've never truly mastered. This book has lots of demonstrations of different looks and should help me be a little more adventurous.

Good introduction to eye makeup. Wish it had more hints for those of us unfortunates stuck with eyeglasses, though.
