This makeup book was released just a short while ago and while i couldn't wait for a UK release i ordered it from amazon.com! Woohooo! How come i can order a book from the states and have it arrive in 3 days and yet ordering something from London can take 5 working days! Argh!
I loved the original book. But this book takes the what was great about the first and then goes far and beyond.
Using "real" women and not models, this book has women in their 20s right up 60s (granted only a few - but its a step in the right direction eh!). This book should inspire you to "rethink" your makeup and if not just be in awe of how amazing most of the women look.
Clearly the above sample is from the 20s section. Not every makeup look is suitable to everyone but you are sure to find a style to three here that you just love.
The pages are split into before:
Hair is always tied back and nothing else on the skin. The best thing about this is that you're not distracted away from the face.
The after shot comes in two forms:
The final shot is without the plastic overlay
Here are a few more shots to admire ...
The final two shorts make me just fall in love with makeup over and over again. When i first got this book i loved it but when i came to this photo i just couldn't stop looking at it. Perhaps it reminded me of why i like makeup the way i do, ie - certain looks over others. Its strong, yet bold but utterly wearable. There is no STRONG brow highlight. The cheek bones are highlighted - its just utterly breathtaking to me.
If you haven't yet please check out NARS MAKEUP YOUR MIND - along with Rae Morris Makeup Book(s) its worth every penny.
