I was lucky to get my makeup obsessed mitts on the newest book by Australian makeup artist Rae Morris.
Rae has been the makeup director for L'Oreal Paris for over 10 years and is one, if not THE most recognised makeup artist from Australia. The book is beautiful and huge with over 400 pages and better still you can also get it on your Iphone or Ipad which are both much easier to balance in the bathroom while trying to master her makeup tutorials!
The book starts from zero with what you need to build your makeup kit and have your basics covered. Starting with an essential shopping list, moving on to prepping your skin, breaking down the millions of foundation categories and an analysis of the face areas. It really prepares you before you even start to think about the makeup application. After moving through different eye shapes (with illustrations) and a comprehensive colour wheel explaining how tones complement and intensify eye colours you really are fully educated and ready to go by the time you reach the tutorial section.
The reason I'm sharing this book is because the tutorials are really good, easy to follow and really inspiring, I spent a week mixing up my makeup daily which you may have witnessed on my Instagram videos and it's really encouraged me to change up my makeup so much more.
It could be a pretty great gift with Christmas coming up!
