The Makeup Mandate, an e-book, is written by Cassandra Rae Ferguson. Cassandra is a makeup artist based in Sydney, Australia. She has worked with many well known Australian photographers, designers, and stylists. Cassandra has gained experience by studying and working all over Australia, and now, she would like to share her knowledge with you!
The Makeup Mandate is the perfect book for budding makeup artists or those who just want to learn more about the art and techniques of makeup. The 276 page e-book is filled with step-by-step instructions, diagrams, illustrations, tips and tricks, and great useful information.
The book is easy to follow and comprehensible. There are 22 chapters that break down the basics of makeup. Cassandra starts the book off introducing the different types of tools, what they are used for, and what to look for. She then explains the different type of products for the face, eyes, lips, and cheeks. Cassandra also explains when each type of product should be used, how to use them, and how long products usually last. The book ends with nearly 100 pages of step-by-step instructions on how to create different looks. She shows you how to create a whole range of looks. Everything from natural to classy to bronzed beauty to bridal. There are so many looks you are bound to find one perfect for you. I won’t describe the whole book to you, because there should be some surprises!
What I like about the book is that she features a range of ethnicity and ages. She even has a chapter on makeup for men! Also, she uses simple words to explain and teach you about makeup. I’ve read a lot of how-to books and Cassandra’s The Makeup Mandate is one of the easiest to understand and follow. I recommend this book for everybody and anybody who wants to learn about makeup.
