Product description

Make-up artist Kevyn Aucoin's faces appear in editorial features, fashion shows, music videos and advertising campaigns as well as on the covers of virtually every major magazine. In this follow up to the highly successful MAKING FACES, he once again astonishes with his incredible transformations of famous and ordinary people and demonstrates how anyone can have a variety of different 'faces'. Working with a whole new cast of famous faces, he turns Celine Dion, Julianne Moore, Sharon Stone, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Lopez and many others into their most beautiful, glamorous, and intriguing selves. He applies his make-up magic to non-celebrities, and for each of them comes up with two or three new looks. For each and every face, both famous and not, he provides step-by-step instructions and illustrations. With this gorgeous and practical book, anyone can 'face forward' with confidence and style.

Customer reviews

By Rachael Sachse 13 Feb 2011 4

Fantastically set out and written, with Kevyn Acoins passion of the job showing through. A beginner make-up artist will find this a great guide, but it's also great for anyone who has never been taught make-up properly, but has a decent grasp on application (including people who have been told a lot of "traditional" tips - Aucoin points out that you should really ignore any rules put in place.)
Personally I would like to see a bit more advanced tips, seeing as his other book "Making Faces" felt like it could have gone into more detail, such as what makes good make-up, rather than just trusting a high price or brands. Definitely a recommended read, being aimed at the average make-up wearer, and is useful to the professional as well.

Review quote

There is an engaging familiarity about Aucoin's anecdotal introduction to each of his subjects... And Aucoin offers a similarly personal and captivating note about each icon whose look he has chose to mirror in this re-invention process... Amazing, really, what can be achieved with some carefully applied powder. When, that is, you have the Aucoin know-how. GLASGOW HERALD
