Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRILLIANT, GENIUS, ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!! I just love Kevyn Aucoin as a person. Everyone loved him. I've read all his books by now. Face Forward, as well as the other make-up books are a true testimony to his limitless talent and dedication, as we ll as love of art and human beauty. He really saw faces, he saw beauty. He could transform anyone into...well, anyone. I don't think there is anyone who knows faces better than he did. It was so incredibly sad that he died at such a young age, but it's shocking that his incredible success as a professional and an artist came to be at such a short period of time. I love his make-up an brushes as well. I am truly a fan and that's saying a lot, considering that I am too proud to be anybody's 'fan', really. You need to have this book, at the very least it will inspire you. It will definitely teach you. You will want to become incredibly beautiful and with this and his other books you will learn how with some practice. I see his works as just that - art. It's priceless. Professionals use his books, artists do as well. He was a master and you will absolutely never regret buying the books. I do suggest that you buy all of them. Everyone should own them. xoxo, V.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kevyn is a muse to the god of beauty Kevyn Aucoin, a self taught makeup genius, and one of the best examples of a cinderella of today, expresses his passion for beauty and creation in an understandable and understanding way (he truly believes that ones real beauty comes from within) in this, one of three tremendous books that he has written. A delight, but what can you expect from a man who does the makeup of the 'most high' while they get to nap lying down and he is spared a fidgety client!

Different years, different ages, if you are a make-up artistry student, this will totally help you a lot. And if you are not, you can still learn a lot of tips of make-up from this book.

For both women experienced in applying make-up and those who are rookies, Kevin has a unique approach to putting your "face forward". With colour blends and styles that will never fade Kevin can show anyone that the art of applying make-up can be as simple as you want it to be. I recommend this book to women of all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Face Forward This is the third book by Kevyn Aucoin that I have purchased. I thought that the first two taught me everything that I needed to know about makeup. As Kevyn indicated in Face forward that he has devoted a lot of time in learning to apply makeup and, slowly but surely, got better and better, and that he is still learning new things every day. So it's correct to say that a lot could be learned by all three of his books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Facing Face Forward I got a chance to preview the book during a quick trip at Seattle. It's bold and visually appealing - that is the least I can say about Kevyn Aucoin's Face Forward, the follow up to the equally enjoyable Making Faces. Terrific illustrations, dramatic photography and comprehensive instructions on how to duplicate some looks all make this book worthwhile. Not convinced? Check out Aucoin's transformation of Martha Stewart to movie star Veronica Lake! It's worth the full price that alone!
