Review: Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual

Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual: For Everyone from Beginner to Pro by Bobbi Brown

I’ve heard about this book from different sources, and as I’ve been paying more attention to my skin and makeup in the last few months (getting old is hell) I thought I’d see if I could pick up a few tips.

There’s a nice long section on skin care; covering the different skin types and how to determine what your skin type is, the types of cleansers and moisturizers to use and how to apply, and lots of tips and tricks. It helped me to straighten out my skin care regimen (it honestly never occurred to me that I was applying an oil serum and a water based moisturizer on top. Oil and water don’t mix. Duh me.) and my skin is looking better now.

All the information was presented in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. I also loved the tips on applying foundation flawlessly. That’s been my big problem (and the reason I got the book) because you know what? When you start getting those fine lines and wrinkles, your foundation doesn’t look flawless anymore.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars we because I felt it could use some editing; some of the sections went on far too long and I started getting bored.

Overall, a great resource for a makeup noob like me and very recommended for people of all skill levels.

Whether you’re an aspiring make up artist or just a beginner looking for instructions on how to do your makeup correctly, you can purchase a copy on Amazon or at book retailers.
