1.0 out of 5 stars A real disappointment, February 24, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual: For Everyone from Beginner to Pro (Hardcover)
I decided to purchase this after the rave reviews I read here but I found this book to be a real disappointment. The instruction is extremely generic and too basic: there are no insider tips or in-depth analysis of any kind despite the 221 pages! Some of the featured looks are great, but a lot of the makeup looks somewhat slapdash and gaudy. For example many of the model's eye concealer is too light, so much so that they appear too have white rings underneath their eyes. Some of the eye makeup is seriously questionable as well, with very visible lines of demarcation and very little blending. I was really shocked and I plan to return this item.

I appreciate the honest feedback. This is a book that I am interested in purchasing but would like to consider the good with the bad. Were the images retouched at all? If the images were distorted from what the models would really look like then the poor look of the makeup may not be due to the artist but the person that retouched the images.
