Make-up, Paperback


Aimed at those who are thinking of doing a course on the subject or starting up their own business, this book offers expert advice on all aspects of being a make-up artist.

There is an introduction to the equipment needed that kicks off the book followed by a section on the perfect base, which includes information on skin cleansing, toning, and moisturising for different skin types.

Eyebrow shaping, brow bleaching and tinting, lash tinting and perming, along with facial waxing, tips on sun care and self-tan make-up all offer invaluable advice on how to achieve a professional, groomed look.

Contra-indications to make-up, hyper-pigmentation problems, skin disorders and common skin complaints are also dealt with.

Dealing with nervous clients isn't always easy. There is a chapter called The Venue that offers expert advice on how to make your client feel relaxed and what facilities the venue should offer.

Eyes, lips and cheeks are all covered in detail and a chapter on male make-up rounds off the book.

Whether you're looking to improve your own style or wishing to make a profession out of offering make-up advice, this book provides all the advice, skills and answers.
