Rae Morris “Makeup: The Ultimate Guide” Review & Inspired Look
Here’s my review of Rae Morris’s book Makeup: The Ultimate Guide. For those of you who don’t know who she is, Rae Morris is one of the top leading makeup artists in the Australia. In fact, she is a four-time winner of Australia’s Makeup-Artist of the Year award. FOUR times!! Talk about a bragging rite in the industry! Her looks have been seen in numerous magazines spanning the globe and she has done makeup for many A-List celebrities. While her start in makeup artistry may have happened by being in the right place at the right time (although it was the wrong place for another makeup artist), it is evident that her talents as an artist were meant to be. I had the pleasure of receiving her book from Makeup Artist Magazine before IMATS LA 2010 and I figured I would share my thoughts on the book.
I am not affiliated with Rae Morris (though I wouldn’t mind working with her!!), or Makeup Artist Magazine (though I wouldn’t mind working for them!! lol).
If you are going to be in LA over the weekend on June 26th-27th, 2010, Rae Morris will be at IMATS as the Keynote Speaker this year. She will be speaking on Saturday at 4 p.m. on the Main Stage at the Pasadena Convention Center. Tickets for IMATS can be purchased ahead of time until June 24th, 2010. After that, you will have to wait until the day of the event to purchase tickets. For more information about IMATS and how to purchase tickets, visit imatsshow.com.
Because I was so inspired by her book, I decided to do a tut based off one of the looks. In fact, it’s one of the looks I showed in the video, that she calls Jeweled Eyes. Here are pics of the look as well as the tutorial. All products used are listed below! Let me know what you think! Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

I received this book for free from Makeup Artist Magazine. This review was done by my own decision and was not influenced in any way by anyone involved. I am not affiliated with Makeup Artist Magazine, Rae Morris, or any parties they may be incorporated with (all though it would be nice if I were or ever could be!! lol).
