In the beginning of the book, there are just quick little tips on eyes, face, and skin which I found to be really helpful. And it isn't just those typical basics, I mean for example: beginning with a light color on the lid, blending is key, eyeliner pencil can be used for more than just lining, explaining the density of brushes and which textures of products work best with them. Of course he elaborates, but just briefly enough to give you information. I appreciated that. Now on to the fun part, the makeup! Just like before, both pages are a before and after with a little clear sheet to go on top of the after page. What is written on this clear sheet, is the placement and name of the product used. Very simple and easy to follow.
The one thing that separated this book from his last, was the use of a wider variety of models. More african, middle eastern, latino, and asian women were included. I truly appreciated this because, all skin color should be celebrated and Nars realizes that. In addition to adding more skin color diversity, the entire polish section is dedicated to older women. Basically I love the book, I am a NARS fanatic and I'm pleased to see a whole new set of looks I can create using the makeup! The book is definitely worth more than what amazon is charging which makes it a great deal :)
I purchased this book when I noticed that all my make-up shades other than naturals/nudes are left intact or used very little as I am not very sure how to make it colorful yet wearable. I used to cut out some pictures from magazines with faces of beautifully/colorfully applied make-up, but then I decided to buy this book.
I have to say that I am completely satisfied with my purchase. There are so many and versatile looks there with different ethnicities and ages (there are even looks for males). I actually tried out couple of looks wich are absolutely not of my ethnicity and skin tone, and this really helped me to make some updates in my make-up routine.
The negative aspect which I noticed is, not all the pages lack numbering. In the meantime, the author in the descriptions reference to some look from mentioning the name of the model and page where the look can be found. However, the pages with the pictures does not have numbers. Also I do not recomend to start with this book for those who are just starting to use make-up and need some basic guidance.
