Jemma Kidd Make-Up Secrets: Book Review


Jemma Kidd has written a new book called Make-Up Secrets, filled with inspirational looks and practical beauty tips illustrated with stunning photography.  I’ve never been one to get excited about beauty books, assuming that they will date before I have a chance to finish reading them, but I’ve found this one really useful and enjoy dipping in and out of it.

If you’re reading this, then like me, you glean lots of beauty info from blogs, magazines and YouTube - but sometimes it’s nice to have a book in your hands and this one is so luxurious it feels like a treat to read.  Plus the ‘secrets’ within will never date.

I’ve found the features on how to recreate iconic beauty looks and catwalk trends really inspirational and am so going to give some of these a go… how exquisite is that Grace Kelly look - and her hair is utterly dreamy too.

I also love the tutorials on creating different smoky eye looks and think it’s great that the book addresses practical issues such as how to make up different eye and lip shapes, look after ageing skin and do facial massage.  I think there’s something for everyone in here and I’m definitely learning a lot from it… I’ll post some of the looks I learn after I have a bit of practice!

Jemma Kidd Make-Up Secrets, published by Jacqui Small RRP £25, though I found it on Amazon for £14.25

Do you think you’d enjoy a book like this? (besides it looking pretty on your coffee table!)
