About this deal

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it's a book about feeling comfortable with yourself, no matter how made up you are. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Being more of a sunscreen and lipgloss kind of woman today, I think I should go get this book again just for the pleasant nostalgia. Back then I was probably more interested in the pictures than anything else this book had to offer (it has a lot!

the photos and actual makeup looks in this book are stunning, and as i said i really enjoyed hearing kevyns thoughts, which are mostly the books saving graces for me and keep its rating two stars, but with all its deficits in mind, i wouldnt recommend this book to as many people as i thought i might. His client roster read like a Who's Who of the entertainment world's elite: this list included Sharon Stone, Whitney Houston, Linda Evangelista, Mary Tyler Moore, Cindy Crawford, Elizabeth Hurley and Bette Midler, among many, many others. 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.

Rita is Ferns best friend, she had a crush on Ambrose through high school but grew up into a bad situation. 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 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.

Holds up, even in today's influencer culture and heavily politicized, unregulated cosmetics industry.I've kept it through several moves, including a period of my life where all my belongings were split between the three friend's houses I was couchsurfing on. Kevyn Aucoin also offers tidbits about his philosophy on makeup and charming stories of his life that relates to makeup.

However, it's good to be reminded of the theory behind make-up application and it will certainly be of good use as a reference for make-up looks of a certain decade. 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.Impressive, almost unbelievable imagery from one of Hollywood’s most talented Make Up artists of our time (RIP). 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. Third, it is easy to see this as art, and faces as canvases, and Aucoin as a skilled and generous artist. Beautiful coffee table book, easy to follow instructional manual with products and makeup tools listed to recreate looks featured.

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. Ich brachte mir das Schminken mit diesem Buch vor Jahrzehnten selbst bei, jetzt ist es für mich ein ansprechendes Nachschlagewerk. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. 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. I liked reading about his past as well and feel very proud that he survived his turbulent adolescence growing up as a closeted gay teen in a conservative small town.It features step-by-step directions, instructional full-colour sketches, and a gallery of non-celebrity transformations. I'm not saying he had to go nuts with special effects makeup, but a bit more diversity in coloring would have been nice. I got this book thinking I should wear more makeup so I won't be mistaken for an undergrad all the time, but it left me feeling like makeup is not necessary at all.
