This book offers a ton of information to help you create different makeup looks that match you features and accentuate your natural beauty, while you enjoy and have fun with the experience. It's basically like a makeup course that contains expert advice, trade tips, secrets and step-by-step instructions.
In many other makeup books, it assumes you already know the basics, but this is easy and comprehensible for beginners and its applies easily to everyone.
In the book, Cassandra pays little attention to the labels and stereotypes. She encourages the reader to discover their own style, rather than just following trends dictated by others. The Makeup Mandate offers plenty of useful information to readers of all ages, ethnicity and lifestyles.
My personal opinion...
I think its an amazing book. It's written very clearly and simple. She offers some very helpful hints and ideas that you can use to make other entire makeup experience fun. Cassandra has sketches included that would make it easier to understand her description. There are pictures of products she mentions (eg, brushes, tools, etc.) that help the reader understand better. It offers alot of detailed information that is stretched out in about 22 chapters.
Cassandra Rae Ferguson has two additional books which are Makeup Mandate or Myth? ($9.95) or The Makeup Artists Mandate ($14.95). I think they're very affordable, especially for the amount of great information that you get. The one i mentioned in this post, The Makeup Mandate is $14.95.
