Impressive, almost unbelievable imagery from one of Hollywood’s most talented Make Up artists of our time (RIP). it contains what feels like a great number of fonts, one of which is the most difficult to read that ive ever encountered in a book before? Beautiful coffee table book, easy to follow instructional manual with products and makeup tools listed to recreate looks featured. I'm not sure how many times I've read this book, but this was the first time I truly appreciated it.

Kevyn Aucoin also offers tidbits about his philosophy on makeup and charming stories of his life that relates to makeup. Rita is Ferns best friend, she had a crush on Ambrose through high school but grew up into a bad situation. Along with the numerous accolades he received is a special award from the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America), the first and only time such an honor was bestowed on a makeup artist. Despite all this, the actual content and tips provided me with no new knowledge, being a make-up lover and fervent viewer of many YouTube make-up artists.Beans, Jessie, Paul, and Grant are Ambrose’s best friends that died in war while serving alongside Ambrose. e. some of the models are clearly wearing white eyeliner, blusher and mascara on their lower eyelashes yet this is omitted from the makeup instructions. I would have loved to see more vibrant looks, like Green eyeshadow, blue lipstick, a mardi gras look, vampire costume look, punk or goth, and some REALLY fun, maybe even halloween-inspired looks. These works cover the basics of makeup application and much more, including how to apply the fundamentals to create a range of flattering looks.

There a loads of full colour pictures inside and many useful techniques from a great make-up artist. Aucoin's gift was seeing the beauty in everyone and in bringing it out by being present and highlighting what's already there, and that is something which is simply not bound by time; it's just pure artistry. It's a far cry from anything he could do before he passed away, but I felt like sharing for the sake of the review. the graphic design within is not only dated but so poorly executed that it's painful to look at parts of the pages at times. Back then I was probably more interested in the pictures than anything else this book had to offer (it has a lot!Kevyn Aucoin's story of growing up, the stories of his siblings, and their role in the development of his talent is compelling and inspiring. The next section, which is entirely celebrities, is more "glamorous" but gives you the details of how to acheive those looks as well. Now, he is one of the most notable makeup artists of our generation and seeing him live his truth and release such popular makeup products is very inspiring. If you practice and master the looks in the book then you will be able to handle pretty much anything else the industry sets before you. Kevyn Aucoin's faces appeared in editorial features, fashion shows, music videos, and advertising campaigns as well as on the covers of virtually every major magazine.

When Rita liked Ambrose, Fern was the one writing back and forth with Ambrose and signing rita's name. My only small niggle would be that sometimes the makeup instructions don't quite match some of the photos in terms of minor detail - i. He does a GREAT job of summarizing styles throughout the decades and gives you step-by-step instructions with color and makeup suggestions for you to replicate the looks. Holds up, even in today's influencer culture and heavily politicized, unregulated cosmetics industry. However, it is an interesting book and it's fascinating seeing the difference between the before and after pics and seeing the stars and models portray beauty icons of the past.

I did at times wish that he went more into the color and art theory behind his thought processes, but I suppose that would be a different book. This book is great for beginners who want to get a brief but informative look into the makeup industry. He was a guest on many television programs, including Oprah , the Today show, Good Morning America , VH-I's Fashion Television , MTV's House of Style and Entertainment Tonight .

kind of moved by how makeup is used as a tool and treated as an art to transform people and how everyone has so much beauty in them… what if umiyak na lang ako! very useful for beginners, but people that have loved doing makeup on themselves for a while will also find a few useful tips and tricks.On the other hand, it is good to know that people can explore their creativity with makeup and bridge the gap of being someone other than themselves. After the section on basics, there's a section of "looks" developed for ordinary people (male and female) alongside their own stories, which makes the book very accessible for those who might feel distant from the subject. Still, I feel some concepts were a little dated such as using the exoticness of Asian women as a makeup look and picking a white model to illustrate this beauty.
