If you have a desire to learn makeup techniques beyond making someone beautiful (which is included too) then this is the book for you. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, and the illustrations show you what the finished product should look like. I spent $2K for two classes in basic makeup and advanced makeup techiniques, all of which I could've learned from this book. Can't praise it highly enough!

touches all basics of makeup. serves as a guideline for beginner to medium level artists. it gives you a general idea of how each step/aspect of makeup work should be done. but if you want to go deeper into any of those areas, you need more specific books. also, it's more a film/tv makeup book, than a fashion/glamour makeup book. I rated it 4 stars, not because it's not good enough, but because it does not cater to my need.

This book saves you the classroom costs by going step by step in every procedure you should know and also has helpful assignments to do at home. Not to mention that it's cheaper than a Corson book and just as valuable.

That review was really helpful. For the past couple of weeks I have been debating back and forth about whether or not I should take the $2,000 basic make-up class or just buy a book and teach myself. Your review helped with my decision. I'm going to buy the book. Hopefully I will be equally as pleased as you are.

BTW, I had to rate the item in order to write the review. Please disregard it. I'll be back with the real rating once I actually read the book. LOL.
