I'm glad I took this book (and all of Bobbi's books, including the newest one) from the library. I don't want the sort of airy/fairy, non-specific philosophies she seems to offer across the board in the 3 books of hers that I've read. I'm looking for specific techniques, spelled out and illustrated in detail, and with refrences to specific products, even if they are all …Read more

I got this one in an ebook format. Like what others said, I learned more by watching youtube videos but at least the book doesn't need to buffer. It has pretty good instructions but it lacks image references.

I didn't buy this book for full price, and I would have been disappointed if I had. I read it when I first got into makeup while I was watching Lisa Eldridge's series of basics videos at the same time.

I found that I gained more from Lisa Eldridge's (free) videos than from this makeup manual. This is in part because makeup has a technical component and I benefited from …

I saw this book in my local library and thought I'd pick it up. First of all, it doesn't really offer anything new that you can't already find out online or on makeup artists' You Tube videos. I thought it offered good advice as to making the best our of your features and accentuating natural beauty, as I have been guilty in the past of wearing too much makeup and looking …Read more

I purchased this along with some make up from Bobbi Brown the other day, damn that counter near me - my wallet suffers every time!
I've read other peoples reviews and I can see their points entirely (except for the person who didn't get who the book was written for when it kind says it on the front, doy) - Bobbi is rather known for her "rules" and they won't apply to …

Quite disappointed with this book, The book bascially glace through the surface of makeup techniques which we can google on the net ourselves. Mostly introduced her products but didn't covered the techniques in depth. Also the tricks of the trade section are mostly common knowledge where you can find on blogs or youtube. It can be a coffee-table book but would not recommend to those who …Read more

I enjoy reading this book. I don't follow all of her advice, but she has some great tricks that make a difference in my makeup. I love her approach to makeup. I like that she focuses on natural beauty and playing to your imperfections. Her models are "real". There is one model she uses with a gap between her two front teeth. It's adorable! The book is rather pricey, but …Read more

I borrowed this from the public library; I'm glad I didn't spend any money on it. As much as I can appreciate Bobbi Brown as an artist and creator, and as much as I enjoy seeing her work on runway models, I just don't think her tips translate to the real world very well. For example, she promotes the notion of buying concealer that's a shade or two lighter than your skin tone …Read more
