Potter-Dixon, Lisa, (author.).


A comprehensive make-up manual that details all aspects of make-up application, solutions to common problems as well as tips and tricks for perfecting your look every time. Starting with the basics, make-up artist Lisa Potter-Dixon teaches you everything you need to know about skincare and perfecting your base before moving into sections that target specific areas of the face. Chapters and looks are organised by feature, each starting with an introduction to the area and followed by looks that show it off best. In Brows, Lisa explains why it is so important to maintain and enhance your brows, before styling a Natural, Full, Ombre and Feathered look. In Blusher and Bronzer she explains why we add colour and takes a look at Contouring, Strobing, Blushing and Bronzing. In Eyes, things really get interesting, with looks for Smokey, Colourful, Nude, Smudged, Bejewelled and Glittery Eyes that will makes your eyes pop. And in Lips, Lisa helps you understand the difference between matte, glossy, smooth lipsticks, pencils, glosses and all that's in between before teaching you how to perfect the Red, Nude, Ombre, Matte, High Gloss and Bold Lip, no matter what your style. Finally, in Lisa's signature style, she offers up looks to dazzle, from Extreme Glitter to using sequins, feathers and transfers, as well as enhancing your look with accessories in a series of features. These also give instruction on which tools to use when, a handy in-flight routine that will help you step off the plane feeling like a goddess, fixing make-up mishaps and finding your perfect wedding look.
