Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual Review

Hey Makeup Fanatics!

I got the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual today as recommended by some makeup artists that I've been in contact with. I was so excited to read it and actually had time since the hubby's car battery died while we were at Barnes & Noble. So, while we waited for help, I got to read through some of it and the kids read almost every book within reach. That was the life!

Anyway, so far I think it's a great book. It's really basic and breaks down everything. This will be an amazing resource for learning. It says that it's for "Everyone from Beginner to Pro", which is so true! It gives great tips for those that are just starting and provides up-to-date tips for the advanced artists. This is awesome since makeup artists are ALWAYS learning.

It covers everything from techniques for each part of the face to how to get into the business to what every makeup artist should carry in her/his kit to advanced techniques. What I love most is that she has a chapter that focuses on the do's and don'ts of working in different industries, which includes department store counters, bridal, beauty salons, televisions, film, commercials, video, live performances and fashion shows.

I think that every makeup artist should definitely check it out. It retails for $32, but right now, at Barnes & Noble, you can get 20% off and an additional 10% if you have a B&N Membership. There's a better deal online if you are in the market for buying more books. This book is $19.20 at the sale price or $17.28 with a membership plus if you spend more than $25, you get free 3-day shipping. Not too bad, don't you think?

I am really looking forward to reading the rest of it!!!! If you have other books you think I should check out, please comment and let me know. Also, if you do have this book or end up getting it, I would love to hear what you think of it and if there was a particular section that stood out to you.

Hope you find this helpful and are having a great week!
