Book Review Tuesdays: Marie Claire Makeup

If you're more of a visual person instead of a wordy person, then this book is for you, especially if you want to be inspired by makeup looks.

Marie Claire Makeup is a full size, glossy book of makeup. Nothing else. No style, no hair, just skin care, makeup, nails, and lots of experts showing you how to do it all. From the basics to the wild, not only do you get a step by step, you get gorgeous full size pictures of them all.

It's the step by step descriptions that make this book worthwhile. For example, do you have trouble using false eyelashes? Doesn't everyone? Marie Claire Makeup breaks it down for you in about four easy steps, making it accessible for everyone, not just makeup artists or junkies like me.

How about the best way to apply lipstick? Brush, tube, or finger? How about ways for each one? That is the type of information you will find in here. From best colors to seasonal palettes, Marie Claire Makeup does a really good job breaking it all down.

Highly recommended! Do you own this book? What do you think?
