how about bobbi brown's books? she has about 3. her are more reading, though, whereas the ones you listed are tutorials. i swapped her books away. i got bored with them. i also swapped kevyn aucoin's "making faces". it's a great book, but i don't know.

Welcome to MakeupTalk, Mirtilla! I'm Janelle from NY - nice to meet you~ ! I see you're from Italy... I'm Jealous!!!
I've always wanted to go there!
I have the K. Aucoin "Making Faces" book - although I have yet to try anything from it
I also got the Alexis Vogel DVD on ebay - it's ok.. I mean I think I was expecting more. I figured I could just use her tips and apply it to the makeup I already have... she does a lot of things showing how to use HER stuff... and most of her tips were pretty common things we do already.
Like in the hair section... she only shows one "full & sexy " look... and then says to straighten your hair & use a curling iron. I already figured that... I was waiting for some big secret tips!!! LOL
and the MU tips are good - but nothing really surprising or new.
Thanks a lot for your advice. At the moment, my favourite books are "Making faces" by K. Aucoin and "Real beauty" by S. Kashuk (also because her dvd is super). Nars book is ok but you have to use ONLY HIS products to reproduce his make-up and, in Italy, they aren't available
. However, my only wast of money was the Mac bible cd rom
P.s. yes, I'm from Milan (northern Italy). I've never been to NY but I visited California for a month some years ago (maybe too many years ago
