bobbi brown makeup manual

since i work at a book store, i was perusing the aisles and saw this hardcore bobbi brown makeup manual book. it has great pictures and the content is for new and advanced makeup lovers like us! she talks about anything from essential brushes, tools, prepping, foundation, lips, eyes, all the way to how to get into the makeup business and possibly start your own line. i found this book incredibly intriguing and thought you gals would like a little taste of what was inside :]

the colors look dull here because my lighting sucks :[ but in person the colors are lively and vibrant!


face chart!

the book without the jacket :]

makeup product shelf life info.

they even show some pro looks, there's more but geisha..ahh! ;D


sorry for the big shadow...but she talks about how to apply lashes and whatnot too.

so i thought this book covered everything from basic to complex. she even shows how to match colors for different skin types and ethnicities...she even included some tips for girls that are mixed and how to incorporate looks that would suit them! love love love :]

it's a great book and it's something to add to your christmas list. it only comes in hardcover since it's pretty new, but i believe you can get it at barnes and noble for about $22 [you save 20% if you're a b&n member!], and maybe $21 on amazon. i love her how to on under eye makeup. it's great :] comes with how to pictures as well :]
