About The Author
Known widely as the most influential makeup artist working in Australia today, Rae Morris can also boast the titles of best-selling author, L'Oreal Paris Makeup Director and four times Makeup Artist of the Year. Collaborating with some of the world's leading photographers, Rae regularly works on editorial covers, and fashion and beauty spreads in magazines. Rae's professionalism, creativity and attention to detail mean she is also much sought after by key fashion houses to direct makeup for their runway shows. Whatever the brief, Rae's skill and experience enable her to move between fresh flawless looks and more dramatic effects with ease. Rae still gets a kick out of seeing her work published and thrives on the chaos of directing a show. When she's not on assignment, Rae splits her time between Sydney and New York.

Some great tips


By the heading I thought this might be a useful book for busy women who needed to know the tricks of the trade to get their makeup done and maintained efficiently. The book does have a lot of great, practical tips and advice, including the changes to make as we age, so I did appreciate these sections. However, I found the later part of the book more directed at giving advice on how to achieve different catwalk/photo-shoot looks which were too dramatic for my needs. These sections thus may appeal more to professional makeup artists or women who experiment with a lot of different looks, such as as for drama or stage. The quality of the pages and photos are excellent otherwise and I will be passing this book on to friends who are makeup artists/performers as they will be able to get more out of the book.
