While it is a good idea on paper, with nice pictures of films and reference photos the actual makeup and how-to section is very poorly executed . Definitely student quality work. Not something for aspiring makeup artist as this is not work you want to aspire to. Harsh, yes, as a professional makeup artist working in the film and television industry this is a bad representation of what film and Tv makeup should look like.
