This book is great for beginners who want to get a brief but informative look into the makeup industry. 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. I have yet to see a makeup book that truly incorporates diversity in beauty or showcases ordinary women with skin problems. 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. 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.

Long story short, I learned little to nothing, arrogantly assumed I had and gave it away in the monthly book swap.

International products have separate terms, are sold from abroad and may differ from local products, including fit, age ratings, and language of product, labeling or instructions. 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. 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. From everyday and glamorous looks Kevyn Aucoin did on his friends, to the iconic looks of the 20th century: the Bombshell (Marilyn Monroe), the Flapper (Josephine Baker), the Gamine (Audrey Hepburn).

I'm not saying he had to go nuts with special effects makeup, but a bit more diversity in coloring would have been nice. Kevyn Aucoin also offers tidbits about his philosophy on makeup and charming stories of his life that relates to makeup. That's exactly what you'll be able to do with the help of books authored by legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin. He uses a variety of famous and faces and his friends and family so you see make-up on all kinds of faces not just beauty models.

Having created beautiful looks for Janet Jackson, Cher and Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevyn Aucoin is perfectly positioned to offer tips and let you in on some of his makeup artistry secrets. 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. If I had not seen the step by step directions for some of the looks, I would have NEVER guessed who it was! Bee-sting pucker, pin curls, false eyelashes and the exact right eye-liner, the night was magnificent.
