Giveaway! Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual: For Everyone from Beginner to Pro by Bobbi Brown

This is the book that Bobbi Brown's fans have been waiting for: her twenty-five-plus years of makeup styling experience distilled into one complete, gorgeous book. Bobbi looks at everything from skincare basics to every aspect of facial makeup--from how to find the right color and type of foundation for any skin tone to how to apply every detail of eye makeup (Brows, Eye Liner, Eye Shadow, and Eye Lashes) no matter your eye color and shape. Of course there are never-before-seen tips on blush, bronzer, lip liners, and lipstick. Bobbi looks beyond the face with informative chapters on "Hands and Feet" and "Body Skin Care." Each chapter has thorough step-by-step basic directions for makeup application and easy-to-follow photographs and line drawings, along with Bobbi's expert, yet assuring, advice. Plus, there's a groundbreaking section of the book that will be of special interest to women who've wanted to know how makeup stylists do what they do: the top beauty secrets only these artists know, essential equipment to keep on hand, how to break into the business, and how to work with photographers and celebrities.

Breathtaking photos of the finished faces-from everyday looks to exotic runway style-along with advice on putting it all together for every woman, make this a book like no other.

My Review:
This is one of those yummy books with glossy color pages that smell good! Everything you need to know about makeup is included in this volume from equipment to the "Ten-Step Guide to Perfect Makeup." Tips for advanced makeup care for fashion shows, television, and photography have a chapter all to themselves. The history of makeup in chronological order and "Who's Who in Makeup" are two delightful surprises at the end.

Sal, I've been wanting this book forever! I'm no good at the makeup thing. I think I need further instruction in this area!!

Oooh, Bobbi Brown is good too. Now I want to win both books, but maybe I'll get lucky and end up with one of them. I'd love to be entered in this one too. I love make-up. (shimmywith4[at]yahoo[dot]com)
Thanks for the fun.

I would LOVE this book! I am a lipstick junkie, so to speak, being of the conviction that there can never be enough. Or, that the perfect color is out there somewhere...Thanks for offering a chance to win!


Knitty said...

I'd love it too. My complexion has changed as has my hair color and I need a make over to get cosmetic colors right. My experience getting makeovers in the cosmetic aisles of department stores has been coming home looking clownish or trampish.
