From the Back Cover
Bobbi Brown Beauty is the ultimate beauty reference. It provides all the basic techniques and information necessary for a woman to look and feel her prettiest in all of the varied situations of her life - from quick daytime makeup to the perfect look for an interview, from black-tie events to her own wedding. All the information is presented in a friendly, refreshingly nonintimidating voice. In this manual, Bobbi Brown strikes conventional thinking about beauty. To her way of thinking, there is no one "perfect" beauty standard but countless expressions of personalized beauty. Bobbi helps readers recognize their own remarkable beauty traits and develop their own natural beauty styles. She also analyzes the styles of some of the most celebrated beauties of the past - Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Onassis, Grace Kelly - and of our time - Christy Turlington, Demi Moore, and Kate Moss.

Some sections were fairly thorough, but most (especially the section on doing eye makeup) remained at a really general level. The only main piece of advice I got from the book is to wear yellow-based foundation, concealer, and powder. A lot of the other information Brown gives is just too general; using some diagrams and showing color variations would have made it much more practical.
Last year, I purchased Sonia Kashuk's _Real Beauty_, and I definitely recommend that book over this one. Kashuk's book shows detailed photos of her makeup techniques so you can really see how a professional makeup artist applies makeup.
I wanted to like Brown's book, but found it not as helpful as I hoped it would have been!
