She’s now teamed up with Blank Canvas Cosmetics to share her best tips, tutorials, and vast knowledge in the form of a book called, “The Makeup Chair Handbook“.
It’s a book that’s not only fun, but simple to read, and is great for any aspiring make-up artist or fanatic to use! Recently, we had a chat with Sinead Cady about her awesome new book:
Can you tell us a bit about the book, and what inspired its creation?
My book “The Makeup Chair Handbook” is a handy book for any makeup lovers out there. It’s packed with makeup tips and tricks and tutorials on everything from primers to foundation, eye makeup to lipstick and blush! My main reason for creating this book was for my makeup demo. At the end of my classes, I would always be asked to write information down or draw diagrams, and now they can take the book home and keep improving their skills.
How did you find the book writing experience?
It was the most difficult project I have ever done. I had no idea how much work goes into books and have a new appreciation for books now. Long hours, lots of tears but some laughter and a lot of pizza went into writing it!
How long did it take you to put all of this together, and how did you find the process?
It took over a year of work. I was offered help but I wanted this to be 100% me and my work. At first it was working out what to put in and leave out, next it was figuring out the best way to explain things and demonstrate it through pictures and diagrams and then the layout. It was so stressful at times but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
What can people expect from The Makeup Chair Handbook?
If they like my videos, they will love this book. It’s my style – concise, detailed without any unnecessary extras, just the best parts!
When writing, what did you want to achieve?
I wanted to create a book that could be used with my videos and I think I have achieved that. Each chapter will have a video or videos so that readers can watch, read and develop their understanding of the makeup world!
What have you enjoyed the most about creating your own book?
I always loved teaching and the book has helped me express that in a way I never thought would be possible! I feel so lucky to have completed one of my goals in life!
What’s your favorite part about The Makeup Chair Handbook?
Working on my friends and my family, in chapter 10 I created lots of makeup looks on them and for them to be part of it, has been the best part for me!
