If you’re searching for a gift for the make up girl or boy who has everything (and has a secret desire to get into make up artistry), this book is pure inspiration and packed with ultra-glamorous, glossy pictures. MUA Jana Ririnui and Lan Nguyen MUA and Creative Director inconjunction with The Academy of Freelance Make Upuse a team of industry professionals to create fantastic looks, turning cosmetics into art. It’s absolutely gorgeous and the perfect ideas factory to get experimenting. Part tutorial and part pictorial, there are lots of familiar names (check the credits list for PR’s you’ll know and recognise!) and plenty of Q&A’s on how to get into the world of make up artistry (and I notice, a massive plug for Dermalogica!). Its cover price is £25, but I’ve spotted it for less on Amazon.
