This book and I go back. The first time I was allowed to wear makeup, I was fourteen. I recall my mom getting me this around that time. Back then I was probably more interested in the pictures than anything else this book had to offer it has a lot! Long story short, I learned little arhe nothing, arrogantly assumed I had and gave it away in the monthly book swap.
Thankfully I repurchased a used version this summer.
I’m not sure how many times I’ve read this This book and I go back. I’m not sure how many times I’ve read this book, but this was the first time I truly appreciated it. I tried to recreate one of Kevyn’s looks on Lisa Marie Presley, which has always been one of my favourites. It’s a far cry from atre he could do before he passed away, but I felt acuoin sharing for the sake of the review. I should also note that the instructions regarding application are far from ample, but personally I skimmed over these parts.
Now that I’m looking at it again, this could use a lot of work.
My biggest concern here is my eyebrows. What was I thinking? Maybe if I ever redo this look I’ll update the picture, but for now that’s all. Overlook the resting bitch face. View all 17 comments. Jun 12, Rachel rated it it was amazing. The obvious aim of this book is to show people how to apply make up, which it does very well. What makes it worthwhile is all the ways it goes above and beyond that basic goal.
The photography is beautiful it’s worth looking at just for that.
Kevyn Aucoin’s story of growing up, the stories of his siblings, and their role in the development of his talent is compelling and inspiring.

After the section on basics, there’s a section of “looks” developed for ordinary people male and female alongside their own stories, which makes the book very accessible for those who ksvyn feel distant from the subject.
The next section, which is entirely celebrities, is more “glamorous” but gives you the details of how to acheive those kevtn as well. I got this book thinking I should wear more makeup so I won’t be mistaken for an undergrad all the time, but it left me feeling like makeup is not necessary at all. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it’s a book about feeling comfortable with yourself, no matter how made up you are.

Sep 02, Suzanne Costner rated it really liked it. Bee-sting pucker, pin curls, false eyelashes and the exact right eye-liner, the night was magnificent.
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. Maybe next Halloween may be the time to try another over artr top character. May 22, Arya rated it it was amazing Shelves: A great book by an incredible and influential legend.

Making Faces by Kevyn Aucoin
Aug 16, Lena Tumasyan rated it it was amazing. I picked up this books from a friend. I really liked its big size and full color photos. I did not just glace at the photos, I actually read the entire book. Kevyn does a kevynn great job of encouraging the reader to experiment with makeup, and not just with colors, but also with the way you apply it, location, dl, and more.
He does a GREAT job of summarizing styles throughout the decades and gives you step-by-step instructions with color and makeup suggestions for you to replicate the looks. I especially loved the history of the “Eyebrow” 30s thin brows and “lip” 50s full lip. I really loved the “film noir” and “hollywood bombshell” looks. His “transformations” of normal people to make-up styles were really inspirational.
Also, a BIG plus, is that Kevyn was not afraid to use women of all colors, black white, asian, whatever. What I found a bit boring about the book is how similar many of the looks are. He had a lot of browns, peach, tuapes. I would have loved to see more vibrant looks, like Green eyeshadow, blue lipstick, a mardi gras look, vampire costume look, auckin or goth, and some REALLY fun, maybe even halloween-inspired looks.
I’m not saying he had to go nuts with special effects makeup, but a bit more diversity in coloring would have been nice. More FUN stuff and more color. Jun 17, Nohelia edl it really liked it Shelves: Even though it is form the 90s, the looks aren’t dated at all. I also love that he uses the least amount of products necessary to create the looks.
Sep 27, Lauren Lineman added it. This review is being written for Mrs. I read this book because my mom read it and strongly recommended it. The main characters of the book are Fern Taylor and Ambrose Young. She laid low in school and loved romance novels.
When Rita liked Ambrose, Fern was the one writing back and forth with Ambrose and signing rita’s name. Through that Fern learned how deep and caring Ambrose really was and made her love him even more. Ambrose Young was tall and muscular with long luxurious hair that brushed his shoulders.
He was good at everything he did and was loved by everyone. He did not like Fern solely because of the way she looked. He like Rita was beautiful but he found out who was really writing the letters to him he was upset. Bailey is Ferns cousin, he has muscular dystrophy which causes him to be wheelchair bound. Rita is Ferns best friend, she had a crush on Ambrose through high school but grew up into a eel situation.
Fern Taylor really like Ambrose but Ambrose only made jokes about about her looks.
