Might be kind of confusing for someone who is not familiar with eyeshadow textures.
Lucy
And in all honestly this book reads like she has just stapled a bunch of her articles together, added a bunch of photos in with them and called it a day.

This is definitely a good book to have in every passionate makeup user's collection.

This is definitely a good book to have in every passionate makeup user's collection. It was my first makeup book (purchased for me for my birthday), and definitely a book for anyone interested in just bettering their own skills, or becoming professionals, but not necessarily for the beginner. This book does cover a lot of things..
From Manicures, to what to look out for in foundations, to makers of good products. It has tips from professionals, steps to getting a certain look (Day, night, natural etc.) It shows you how to pluck your eyebrows, depending on your face shape; how to take care of your skin, and products to do it with; all the tools to get you started; and more...
Though, I don't give it 5 stars for the following reasons (which are in my opinion based on my preferences, but may not matter to some readers):
- I am pure European (Danish/German) so I have very fair skin, blue eyes, and naturally champagne blonde hair. I was looking for something that would give color pallets, tips, (anything) for people with specific ethnicities (though it did have a /small/ page on Asian/African American, that was it) it did not cover my department. Like I said, this matters to few people, but if you are European, like myself, (unless you know what colors are perfect for you) this may not be a good beginner book. (This is also IF you just are looking to do better makeup on yourself)
- Not enough Diagrams. This also, is just me, but I am right-brained: I have to see something to understand it, and there aren't many diagrams in this book. But that doesn't mean there isn't /any/. There is one for eyebrows, some (very few) eye shadow techniques, defining face shape... and I can't think of any others.

This book seems unique. It tells how to put on make-up in a fun, glamorous way. I consider this to be an intermediate level book on makeup. It's good, but I wish there had been some more pictures on the makeup application sections. There were a lot of tips on health and beauty that I haven't seen in other books. For a beginner who wants to learn the basics of applying makeup, I would recommend Bobby Brown or Sonia Kashuk (their books are better illustrated and explained). But if you want to learn how to look good when going out to a nightclub, or want that "Vogue" type of look, I would recommend this book.

Being what I consider somewhat of a pro when it comes to makeup, I rarely find books that teach me something I don't already know.. Not the case with this one! It's got absolutely everything in it, that beginners as well as the experienced can benefit from. From how to give yourself different types of mani/pedicures to how to achieve "glossy" eyes. It even goes through the history of makeup which in itself is fascinating. It covers all complexions (which is a must in my criteria. The pictures themselves are graphically stunning and very helpful. It doen't have too much name dropping when it comes to products which tends to become annoying. Overall it was a good investment and I recommend it to everyone.

Overall this book offers a lot of useful information. What I like about it is that Cohen has provided advice from many different sources. There is a variety of product suggestions; it doesn't seem like someone trying to sell you on their products alone.

I did however find a few contradictions in the book. For example, on one page it will suggest a woman at a certain age refrain from using glitter eyeshadows, and then two pages later, it says to use shimmer for mature lids. Might be kind of confusing for someone who is not familiar with eyeshadow textures.

Another thing I think was kind of bad was when she described someone with a oblong face shape as having a "horse face". When you are writing a book to help people improve their look, and use a negative term to describe a body part, it kind of defeats the purpose. Anyone who works with the public within the beauty industry knows that-or I hope they do!

As with any beauty book, take it with a grain of salt and use what works for you.

this book is great! i've bought many many makeup books (including kevin aucoin, vincent longo, bobbi brown just to name a few) but this book is THE only book to tell me what i wanted to know. it is not a basic makeup book, thank goodness. i'm an aspiring makeup artist and i know the basics, i wanted to learn more about fashion makeup and glitter and jewels and different types of base makeup (dewy, matte)...yeah, all that stuff, and this book has it all! i am finally content with a makeup book. a lot of other books give you some photos but dont tell you exactly how to achieve that glam look, or how to get that glossy eye shadow but this book does. i love it! i can't stress enough how great this book is. it covers everything! even body makeup!! i didnt even get to that part yet but i'll write another review on that. lol. after reading what i did, i was not left feeling...unfullfilled i guess you can say like i was with all the other books. i think i can stop looking, this book has it all, even hair styles. this book is a must have. thank you so much to Juliet Cohen for writing this.
