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 Skin Secrets, make-up artist Lisa Potter-Dixon teaches you everything you need to know about skincare and perfecting your base. In Beautiful Brows, Lisa explains how to enhance your brows, before styling a Natural, Full, Ombre, and Feathered look. In Go with the Glow, she explains why we add color and takes a look at Contouring, Strobing, Blushing, and Bronzing. In The Eyes Have It, things really get interesting, with looks for Smoky, Colorful, Nude, Smudged, and Glittery Eyes. And in Luscious Lips, Lisa helps you understand the difference between types of lipsticks, pencils, glosses, and all that's in between before teaching you how to achieve the perfect lip, no matter what your style. Finally, Lisa offers up Looks to Dazzle, from Extreme Glitter to using sequins, feathers, and transfers, as well as enhancing your look with accessories. Whether you’re looking for a fun and youthful, elegant and sophisticated or one-off look, Lisa will show you how to make the most of your facial features and complexion in this Make-up Manual.
