Description

This book is great for beginners who want to get a brief but informative look into the makeup industry. Despite all this, the actual content and tips provided me with no new knowledge, being a make-up lover and fervent viewer of many YouTube make-up artists. It is an ambiguous blend of different facial features from different races: the uptilted eyes of East Asians, the full lips of black women, golden tan skin of Latinx people, sharp cheekbones of Native Americans, long dark lashes of Middle Eastern women etc. I'm not sure how many times I've read this book, but this was the first time I truly appreciated it.

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. He uses a variety of famous and faces and his friends and family so you see make-up on all kinds of faces not just beauty models. Impressive, almost unbelievable imagery from one of Hollywood’s most talented Make Up artists of our time (RIP). It features step-by-step directions, instructional full-colour sketches, and a gallery of non-celebrity transformations.He features both friends and family, along with remarkable transformations of recognizable famous faces! 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. 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. Also, a BIG plus, is that Kevyn was not afraid to use women of all colors, black white, asian, whatever. If I had not seen the step by step directions for some of the looks, I would have NEVER guessed who it was!

i’ve ‘read’ this from cover-to-cover but have yet to practice the techniques generously detailed in the book (it’s the first makeup book to really show contouring to the public, though drag queens had already been way ahead of all of us during this time). I think that the climate of today's cancel culture would definitely not let him get away with saying that so this book definitely shows it is from another era.On the other hand, it is good to know that people can explore their creativity with makeup and bridge the gap of being someone other than themselves.
