Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great book for makeup lovers I remember browsing this book back when I was 11 years old, knowing nothing about makeup but being absolutely fascinated by Kevyn Auction's amazing talent. This book is still relevant today, and even with the oversaturation of instagram and youtube gurus, Kevyn's work will stand the test of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transform your face Kevin Aucoin was the most talented makeup artist ever and no one will ever be at his level of creativity or expertise. In this book he makes-up and transforms well known celebrities into other celebrities, for example Lisa Marie Presley made into Marilyn Monroe and she looks exactly like her. This is a fun and entertaining book with color photos to look through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Power, Picture Perfect. Bought this bought a few months ago and have yet to finish it. It is just so appealing to look at that I am taking my sweet, sweet time to finish it. That being said, holds an army worth of timeless beauty information for every shade, age and face. Kevyn Aucoin's friendliness transcends in every page and tip. Many beauty books out there, same information. Would recommend for every woman as he truly is the master of beautification (inner and outer).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Making Faces Review I have read this book and think it is great for all women out there with a pile of different shades of make-up in their bathroom drawers with no real idea of how to use them properly. I learned about mistakes I had been making for years, and have now corrected them and get quite regular compliments on my make-up. I would recommend this book to any woman in need of a self-make-over! Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making Faces and Making Progress Ever wanted to spruce up your make-up for an evening out with your friends or significant other? I did. Unfortunately, I was not sure where to begin, what products to get and how to apply my make-up to achieve a look I wanted, until now. Kevyn is a true artist and will surprise and amaze you at the truly magnificent ways he makes up his models to glorify them. He truly flatters people by the way he brings out the most beautiful features in his models. The best thing is that he chose models ranging from his sisters, movie stars, rock stars and others that have had a truly hard life, or tell an inspirational story. The books even tells you what make up to get, the colours, the utensils to use, and then shows you step by step how to apply the make-up to achieve that look, regardless of your tones or eye shape. He literally shows you all his secrets and makes you an expert within your own bathroom.
