About this deal

while i love and respect kevyn aucoin and what he has done for makeup artistry, and i loved hearing about his thoughts and experiences in this book, it is truly such a mess. 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. Also, a BIG plus, is that Kevyn was not afraid to use women of all colors, black white, asian, whatever. 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.

Beautiful photographs, clear instructions and drawings, with makeup styles which are still fashionable today, you can read in detail, or just flick through, it is absorbing. I should also note that the instructions regarding application are far from ample, but personally I skimmed over these parts. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.That's exactly what you'll be able to do with the help of books authored by legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin.

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. 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.

Impressive, almost unbelievable imagery from one of Hollywood’s most talented Make Up artists of our time (RIP). 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.

He features both friends and family, along with remarkable transformations of recognizable famous faces!Rita is Ferns best friend, she had a crush on Ambrose through high school but grew up into a bad situation. Fern was terrified because when she got the news she didn't know what had happened to him and in all that had happened she still loved him.

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. I've read it several times myself and my friends and family are always picking it up when they come over. The second part includes detailed and illustrated step-by-step guides on how to achieve dozens of different make-up looks. Hence, he’s put together this book and packed it with more than 200 illustrations and invaluable tips for professional-grade makeup application. Seeing a book by Kevin Aucoin written in the early 2000s reinforces the fact more than ever: lines are blurring and boundaries in beauty are disappearing.i’ve ‘read’ this from cover-to-cover but have yet to practice the techniques generously detailed in the book (it’s the first makeup book to really show contouring to the public, though drag queens had already been way ahead of all of us during this time). 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.
