BOBBI BROWN MAKEUP MANUAL & JEMMA KIDD MAKE-UP SERIES

Jemma Kidd & Bobbi Brown Makeup Book
I posted a photo on Instagram & Twitter and I had quite a few questions about these books so I thought that I'd feature them in a post! 

For those of you that frequently read my blog, may well know that I am taking the steps to train to be a makeup artist! To try and give myself a basis to build on, I thought it would be a good idea to invest on some 'beauty books' and since I've heard some really good things about these particular two, I snapped them up on Amazon! They both have a RRP of £25, but they are sold at £16 on Amazon, and then as a student I qualify for 5% student discount on certain things, including books! I know 5% isn't a lot but it did mean that I got both books for £30.20 rather than £32 - every little helps!

The Jemma Kidd book, in my opinion is aimed more so as those who enjoy makeup but do not wish to be a professional in the field. It gives you so much valuable information, tips and advice as well as demonstrations on how to create so many different looks! I feel as if this would be a great book for someone who wants to know a little more about what they're actually using on their face! It's not a bad book at all, I just think the target audience is more hobbyists than those wishing to become pro.

This book is great! I would say this book caters more for those who wish to make a career out of the makeup industry, but it's definitely not limited to that! There is a large section of the book dedicated to that, which obviously does cater for those looking at becoming an MUA but it's a really informative book for anyone - novice, hobbyist or aspiring pro!

Both books are set out really well and in such a way that you can find exactly what you want really easily. They both cover so much and provide so much detail - from eyeshadow finishes to what to look for in skincare for your skin type! They both have beautiful photographs and have really easy step-by-step tutorials for creating looks! Although I wouldn't stop anyone buying either book, I think if you're only buying one, if you're thinking about going professional pick up the Bobbi Brown one and if you're not, then get the Jemma Kidd one!

Available, cheapest, from Amazon: Jemma Kidd & Bobbi Brown!
