Book Review: Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual

Posted on Nov 23, 2008 at 11:11AM

Bobbi Brown, in her new book Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual, is for everyone, from beginner to pro.

After reading the easy-to-learn manual, you will feel confident enough to break into the makeup artist business or just be a very educated consumer who knows how to put their makeup on like a pro.

This is the book that all women have been waiting for - Bobbi Brown's 25 plus years of makeup artist experience distilled into one complete, lavishly produced volume.

With over 200 full-color photos that is as much art book as beauty book, and step-by-step instructions, including a Ten-Step Guide to Perfect Makeup, which we will share with you next week, Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual shows even the most makeup-challenged woman how to apply makeup like a pro.

Bobbi offers a plethora of trade tricks.  Here is a beauty tip for finding the right lip color:

To identify the best basic lip color, remove all makeup.  The perfect neutral shade -- pinky brown, nude, beige pink, rosy brown, pink, chocolate, or blackberry -- will generally be close in tone to the natural lip color.  The one that looks good on the naked face is the right neutral, everyday, mistake-proof color.  It should not look ashy, orange, or pink, but like an enhanced version of the natural lip color.  Some women might need more color, and the shade that works best without makeup could be bright or dark rather than neutral.  You know you have found the right shade when it enhances the skin tone, makes the eyes look brighter, and gives the face a lift.

Whether you are a makeup artist wannabe or a makeup minimalist, Bobbi's tricks of the trade will have your makeup looking flawless.
