Book of the Week - the Makeup Manual, by Benefit's Lisa Potter Dixon
13 April 2017

Lisa Potter Dixom is a fabulous guest on QVC for Benefit - the country's number one high street make up brand. We do lots of wonderful kits, go here to see the whole range. Anyway in this manual, Lisa gives the benefit of her knowledge from years in the beauty business and the skills she's learned along the way.

"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 before moving into sections that target specific areas of the face. Chapters and looks are organised by feature, each starting with an introduction to the area and followed by looks that show it off best. In Beautiful Brows, Lisa explains why it is so important to maintain and enhance your brows, before styling a Natural, Full, Ombre and Feathered look. In Go with the Glow, she explains why we add colour and takes a look at Contouring, Strobing, Blushing and Bronzing. In The Eyes Have It, things really get interesting, with looks for Smokey, Colourful, Nude, Smudged, Bejewelled and Glittery Eyes that will makes your eyes pop. And in Luscious Lips, Lisa helps you understand the difference between matte, glossy and smooth lipsticks, pencils, glosses and all that's in between before teaching you how to perfect the Red, Nude, Ombre, Matte, High Gloss and Bold Lip, no matter what your style.

Finally, in Lisa's signature style, she offers up Looks to Dazzle, from Extreme Glitter to using sequins, feathers and transfers, as well as enhancing your look with accessories in a series of features. These also give instruction on which tools to use when, a handy in-flight routine that will help you step off the plane feeling like a goddess, fixing make-up mishaps and finding your perfect wedding look. So 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 to become Easy on the Eyes."

It looks a great present for a teenager just starting out or a gran who's never really got to grips with the whole makeup thing.
