I think I’m becoming a makeup enthusiast! πŸ™‚ I’ve never posted so much about makeup until recently. I used to be contented in my basic makeup that I usually do (concealer, 2-way foundation powder, blush and lipstick), but now I feel it’s not enough. I’m just too eager to learn more. I’m amazed whenever I watch make-up artists practice their profession. I can say my little knowledge about makeup is mainly from watching them do others’ or my own makeup. And so now, I have to take it to another level. Hehe! I got this book, BOBBI BROWN MAKEUP MANUAL, recently… πŸ™‚


It really is very imformative. I remember featuring it here in my blog when the book came out. Since then, I’ve been seeing it in bookstores and I’ve been reading it there whenever I needed to kill time. Hehehe! πŸ™‚ And now that I’m loving makeups too much and I’ve been buying and experimenting on them, I thought I needed to get Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual for myself. πŸ™‚

I love how she explained in detail the use of each makeup and brush type. She also gave tips on how to apply each makeup product for every skin type. It is that detailed that she’s like a personal instructor explaining to you the proper way to use concealer, foundation, blush, etc. Some books or videos teaches us the basics, but we have to keep in mind that different skin types and skin colors also vary in techniques when applying each product. Bobbi Brown touched this in her book. She would help you identify your skin type and color. Then, for every makeup product, like concealer, foundation, etc, she would suggest the kind of product (liquid, cream, powder, etc.) to be used for every skin type (oily, dry, combination) in order for the makeup to last. She also recommended shades that would blend and work well for every skin color. The book is picture heavy as well to make it easier for the readers to understand her step-by-step instructions. It literally is a makeup manual, something that makeup enthusiasts have always wanted. Hehehe! πŸ™‚ So for those starting to appreciate and love the art of makeup, grab a copy now in the nearest bookstore. It’s just quite hard to get one as it’s always out of stock here in Manila (I’m just not sure in the other parts of the world)! Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual is now being sold at Amazon for $21.12, but I tell you, every penny is woth it for those who want to learn the basics. In fact, as the book says, Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual is for everyone from beginner to pro. πŸ™‚
