The world of make-up is exciting, but also bewildering, with new products and fashions constantly appearing. "The Complete Make-up and Beauty Book" offers both practical advice and inspiration to make sense of your beauty needs, and the looks that are right for you. The author draws on a wealth of experience as a model, stylist and beauty editor, and on the talents of leading make-up artists, to present a fresh look at the subject. As well as offering tips and suggestions, "The Complete Make-up and Beauty Book" is filled with spectacular photography. The chapters first cover 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 eleven step-by-step accounts, with accompanying photography, 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 make-up mistakes. The book covers a wide variety of skin colours and types.
