Book Review- Makeup The Ultimate Guide By Rae Morris
Hey Makeup Lovers!
Are you loving the fall makeup trends? I guess you are incorporating them in your looks and having fun. For getting the most out of your expensive makeup collection, you need to get the basics right and it is good to have a guide who can give you some ideas.
I always keep looking for new makeup ideas and getting it right. If you remember, I suggested you some great makeup books worth investing in. After that post I got two makeup books, one is a PDF of Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual and the other is Makeup- The Ultimate Guide by Rae Morris. I bought Rae Morris’ book from Flipkart (Its a real book as in made of paper).
Price- I got it only for INR 1035
About Makeup The Ultimate Guide By Rae Morris
The book has 14 chapters besides introduction, Rae,s Gallery and a very useful index. All the chapters are quite detailed and are accompanied by amazing pictures.
The first chapter is about makeup essentials. It explains thoroughly the basic things that every girl and makeup artist need in their kitty. Rae lists the most important makeup items including all kinds of tools. She insists that one can compromise on makeup items but should never compromise on the quality of makeup brushes.
In the second chapter she tells all about prepping skin for makeup and also explains separately about prepping eyelids. The third chapter about eyebrows is quite useful. You will find a whole lot of fantastic information about eyebrow shaping and other grooming tips.
The following chapters go into every aspect of eye makeup. You will find your most suitable eye makeup colours as per your eye-colour. Rae Morris has then shown her makeup mastery on eyes of lovely models. She has explained each look with step-by-step pictures that you can follow easily.
Then there are some interesting makeup tips for women above 40 but the ideas can be eye-openers for younger girls as well.
Rae has given some awesome foundation tips that will help you in finding your best foundation. You will also learn how to achieve glowing, radiant or velvet skin.
The tips about bronzing, contouring and highlighting are very helpful. There are pictures that show you the lines that you need to follow for each of these steps. I seriously love the pictures in this section.
Some good tips about lip-makeup will help you in prepping your lips well and will also guide you on getting full and luscious lips.
And there is the ultimate section of 10-minute makeovers that has earthy look, beach look, natural look and some more beautiful looks that you can follow as each of the looks has been explained quite well.
My Thoughts About Makeup The Ultimate Guide By Rae Morris:
The book is beautiful to hold and look at. It makes a good read and keeps you interested. You will learn a lot from the book but the book is not for complete beginners in my view. It is because the book does not go deep into basic techniques of makeup application.
I cannot compare it to Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual as I am yet to read that one.
If you have some knowledge of makeup then I will definitely suggest you buying this makeup book so that you get better in the art and science of makeup.
Do I recommend Makeup The Ultimate Guide By Rae Morris? Yes if you want to learn more interesting things about makeup.
