A lot of the things you'll find in this book make up the foundation of the course where I studied (the section in beauty as opposed to screen and theatrical). Why? - because it's the essentials of what beauty and everyday makeup is all about. It gives you all the basics and then pointers to enable you to develop your own style. It's also easy to follow, well written and yet very comprehensive.
I've personally found that most books by professional makeup artists only appear to help you, but in reality just give a lot of pretty pictures with little workable substance. And if you know what you're looking at, most of their 'tips' and methods arn't that great either. These books have struck me overall as being more for self-promotion then anything else. A makeup artist with a book full of glossy model and celebrity photo's, if it sells well, will instantly become a 'star' makeup artist.
Totally recommend this book for actually delivering what it promises to.
Ms. Crawford seems to believe that her colouring and facial shape are universal. For instance, she claims that anyone can wear black mascara. This is false: light-skinned blondes and redheads should avoid black mascara and instead go for the lightest shade of brown they can find. (Black mascara can look obvious and fake on a very light-skinned woman.) I'm sure other problems would exist for women of Asian or African heritage attempting to follow some of the steps.
The book is written in such simple English that I felt as if I were being talked down to. The information is skimpy (you'll find more on one page of any of Paula Begoun's books) and the photos more glamour shots of Crawford than useful aids for the reader.
