FACE Makeup Book by Sam & Nic Chapman of Pixiwoo

If you're just starting out with makeup, wish you could master the perfect eyeliner flick or want to take your beauty knowledge to the next level - you'll love 'Face'. This beautiful new makeup book by Sam and Nic Chapman aka Pixiwoo, contains step-by-step guides for everyone from beginners to aspiring makeup artists.

There was a time when I was baffled by the idea of watching YouTube videos of other people applying makeup, until I discovered the Pixiwoo sisters. Many years on, I still love watching these down to earth, original beauty vloggers, along with 2 million+ global subscribers.

As a long term viewer, I wasn't sure if I'd learn anything new from the book, but I was wrong about that... Face is both gorgeous to look at and a brilliant reference point for practical beauty guidance. As well as advice on things like tools, brows and skin, it includes specialist tips such as dealing with lash loss and how to perfect your lip shape with liner.

There's no doubt that watching Nic and Sam apply liquid liner on camera is the ultimate, but their book goes the extra mile by breaking each process down into steps we can follow at home. Extra tuition will be available via a free app, with exclusive videos to accompany the book.

I've wasted more time in failed attempts to apply false lashes than any other beauty ritual - and this particular guide is the first one I'll be following to the letter!

Face also includes more creative makeup styles and pro tips, illustrated with striking photography... this foiled gold eye is one of my favourites.

Nic and Sam have presented their combined knowledge using both pictures and language that are accessible to all... personally, I think Face is a brilliant read that every makeup wearer will both enjoy and learn from.

Face by Nic and Sam Chapman, published by Blink Publishing, launches 20 October 2016 RRP £20. It's currently on offer for £13 and available for pre-order on
