So, everyone has holy cow moments. And this is one of mine.  Holy Cow!

 I wrote a book….and not only did I write the book, but they actually PUBLISHED the book…AND not only did they publish the book, but it’s actually for sale…

Holy Cow!

And what is this book about, you ask?  Well, the title really says it all….it’s the handbook, guidebook, playbook….soup to nuts, A to Z….everything you need to know to start your own makeup artist business.  It’s essentially everything I know about makeup, in 200 pages.  So, if you’re aspiring to be a makeup artist, be your own boss, and have a good time doing it….then this might be the book for you!

How to Start a Home-based Makeup Artist Business

I really like this book! It is well written in a nice tone/language. All the details about makeup you should know about (especially as a makeup artist)is explained and addressed in this great book, from doing the makeup techniques to doing the home-based business. One down side for this book I must say is that it is only in pink and black, and has no photos of any makeup work at all. The color wheel is not even in colors. Over all, it is an excellent source for information in makeup artistry.
