This book is actually my first purchase to do with beauty. Im very picky when it comes to books. I like it be knowledgeable, simple and engages me. Before i got this book i had read alot of reviews on it and was skeptical whether i would feel the same or not.
So abit about Jemma kidd.... Jemma is a makeup artists who has worked with many fashion designers and photographers and of course famous people. Her amazing work has been featured in a bunch of magazines such as Vogue and Elle. She was a spokesperson for Max Factor and Rimmel and for 5 years she wrote a weekly column for you magazine. 2003 saw Jemma found the Jemma Kidd Make Up School in London where it offered a range of professional/non professional course. She has developed and produced 2 make up ranges.
Inside the book she shares her wealth of knowledge from working in the beauty industry and addresses the key make up issues and answers questions that many women want to know. The book is split into two parts. The first part making make up work covers the basics, formulations, which products to use, how to apply them and how also how to wear colour.
In the second part of the book its the problem solver where she addresses key beauty concerns such as how to take care of your skin, dealing with dark circles and blemishes.
First of all the images are absolutely stunning! They are so clear and really brings the book to life. I love Jemmas writing style of educating women without patronizing them and instead gives them the tools to use makeup with confidence. The way the books is so simple yet knowledgeable aswell so it isnt too basic either. From reading this book ive learnt tips and tricks i never knew existed which will bring me confidence in the areas i dont like on my face. When i first brought this book i thought i might just read it then never look at it again but ive been back reading it more and more whenever i want to learn something more. This book is really worth having if you are wanting to learn more about makeup abit more in depth and something you can build on. The price of this book is £16.00 and i think its worth every penny for the quality of the book and the information.
