The world of makeup is exciting, but also bewildering, with new products and fashions constantly appearing. The Makeup book offers both advice and inspiration to make sense of your beauty needs and the looks that are right for you. The title covers the basics: taking care of your skin and ways to keep the signs of ageing at bay. The author looks at tools and techniques, the basics of foundation, concealers and powders, and approaches making up the face in three parts: eyes, lips and cheeks. The last chapter contains 11 step-by-step accounts, with photographs, of how to achieve a variety of 'looks', from sun looks and natural, to teenage, mature and high fashion. Fact panels touch on topics including application mistakes, face faults and correcting them and ten basic makeup mistakes.
