    A couple minor things/wants.. It would be good to have a download with those face map images in a pdf as a handout, and perhaps the product recommendations briefly that correspond. This, so far is great, coming from a position where I know very little I already have a much better grasp of understanding. I think I still wouldn’t start applying the makeup yet .. but at least it is an excellent start.
