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.
