In Making Faces, make-up artist Kevyn Aucoin shares his secrets, explaining not only the basics of make-up application and technique but also how to use those fundamentals (sometimes in unconventional ways) to create a wide range of different looks. It features step-by-step directions, instructional full-colour sketches, and a gallery of non-celebrity transformations, as well as fabulous images of stars and supermodels as you have never seen them before. Lush and enticing, Making Faces satisfies on many levels: extraordinary photography, surprising make-up looks on A-list celebrities (Julia Roberts, Demi Moore, Courtney Love), and recipes for doing it yourself.

Great for anyone who wants to toss everything they've learned, and learn it correctly. Great for beginners and anyone that needs a refresher, all the way to advanced and professional levels, although it could do with slightly more material to make it perfect for professionals. Definitely a recommended more
