Book Review | Jemma Kidd Make-up Secrets

Since i was at makeup school, or even before that i enjoyed reading makeup books from various artists. One of my favourite things about makeup books is gazing over the beautiful photographs. There is so much information out there but as a makeup artist, i still love learning about new techniques, products, applications etc.

The Jemma Kidd Make-up Secrets book is filled with useful information, tips and tricks that will inspire anyone. I don't have her previous book, Jemma Kidd Make-up Masterclass but i had heard many good things about it.

The book is divided into two parts: Making Makeup Work For You and Problem Solver. The first part is broken down into Naturally Beautiful, Enchanting Eyes, Luscious Lips, Fashion Makeup and Timeless Looks.

The second part explains how to deal with problems; Maintaining Radiant Skin, Beauty First Aid, Holding Back The Years, Seasonal Shift and Stop The Clock.

There are other sections which talk about skin concerns, such as dry patches, disguising dark circles and eye bags, treating dry, chapped lips and so much more! The book also includes 5 minute makeup looks for different occasions and we have all been in that situation where you have a few minutes to get ready!

One of the reasons why i love this book, is that it caters for everyone, whether you're a beginner into makeup or a makeup artist or just love beauty. I find this book giving me a lot of inspiration, as sometimes we get into a rut with our makeup routine. This book has so many beautiful images and illustrations, which will help you recreate looks at home.

I wanted to try and keep this review quite brief, as i could have baffled on for ages!!!

Jemma Kidd Make-up Secrets can be purchased on Amazon for £16.
