Makeup Manual is a veritable treasure trove of  makeup tips and pictures; with excellent advice and direction for budding and established makeup artists of the world.”

Makeup Manual is a really user friendly and easy to understand. It is also a very detailed manual which gives hint and tips about beautifying yourself and others. With a focus on the makeup artist’s side of things, this book also has a lot of great tips for those of us at home who are just looking for useful, everyday instruction; not the ultra-glamorous stuff used in the high-fashion world.  With skin basics including nutrition and diet suggestions that can help improve your skins appearance and help promote healthy skin, Bobbi talks about essential vitamins, exercise and the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  Beautiful step-by-step photographs capture your attention and wow’s you with some really unique, tricks-of-the-trade.  With topics ranging from makeup artistry and skincare: toning, cleansing and moisturising, to preparatory primers, consealer’s and foundations. It also includes tips and step-by-step instructions on makeup application on the lips, eyes, cheeks and how to get that smooth, all-over look.  This book is a keeper!  I’ve learned so much from reading this vibrant and informative manual; I believe it is well worth your money.
