I have to disagree with the other reviewers. As someone just trying to learn how to apply makeup I didn't find this book helpful at all. I especially didn't like the use of drawings instead of pics. You can draw whatever you like but it's not the same as looking at a pic of someone who is supposed to have small close set eyes... you all know what I mean. I don't think this is a good book for the novice and that includes the skin care tips. Wash your face twice a day and don't use drying products. There that should take care of the cleansing routine and I have saved you some money to boot..... I expected better than this.
