Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for makeup artists, probably not great for the makeup junkie consumer. I learned more in this book then I have in all of the makeup classes I have taken over the years. It is a study book more then a read for fun book, every artist needs to read it.

This book is a great book to understanding makeup artistry! It goes over every aspect of being a professional in the beauty and makeup industry. It does go into some scientific detail but explains the need for the information in a practical way. A very helpful book and highly recommended.

I have so many makeup books and I hate when I get a new one that just covers the same old things over again, this was a pleasant surprise. I love the level of depth this goes into about absolutely everything involved in makeup.
