About this deal

From everyday and glamorous looks Kevyn Aucoin did on his friends, to the iconic looks of the 20th century: the Bombshell (Marilyn Monroe), the Flapper (Josephine Baker), the Gamine (Audrey Hepburn). Hence, he’s put together this book and packed it with more than 200 illustrations and invaluable tips for professional-grade makeup application.

In a book that features 60 instructional watercolor sketches and step-by-step recipes for dozens of different looks, the world's most renowned makeup artist shares his makeup secrets with women everywhere.

Seeing a book by Kevin Aucoin written in the early 2000s reinforces the fact more than ever: lines are blurring and boundaries in beauty are disappearing. Kevyn Aucoin's faces appeared in editorial features, fashion shows, music videos, and advertising campaigns as well as on the covers of virtually every major magazine. If you practice and master the looks in the book then you will be able to handle pretty much anything else the industry sets before you. The next section, which is entirely celebrities, is more "glamorous" but gives you the details of how to acheive those looks as well. I'm not saying he had to go nuts with special effects makeup, but a bit more diversity in coloring would have been nice.

He was a guest on many television programs, including Oprah, the Today show, Good Morning America, VH-I's Fashion Television, MTV's House of Style and Entertainment Tonight. He features both friends and family, along with remarkable transformations of recognizable famous faces!

Also, a BIG plus, is that Kevyn was not afraid to use women of all colors, black white, asian, whatever. 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. e. some of the models are clearly wearing white eyeliner, blusher and mascara on their lower eyelashes yet this is omitted from the makeup instructions. Third, it is easy to see this as art, and faces as canvases, and Aucoin as a skilled and generous artist. That's exactly what you'll be able to do with the help of books authored by legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin.

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. the graphic design within is not only dated but so poorly executed that it's painful to look at parts of the pages at times. This was the first book on beauty I encountered that suggested to me that makeup can be used to express a feeling, a facet of yourself, an aspiration of who you wish to be in the moment. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it's a book about feeling comfortable with yourself, no matter how made up you are. If I had not seen the step by step directions for some of the looks, I would have NEVER guessed who it was!The classic -- and gorgeous -- bestseller from one of the most influential makeup artist in history. Kevyn Aucoin shares his secrets, explaining not only the basics of make-up application and technique but also how to use those fundamentals to create a wide range of different looks.

Se é um livro contando a história da maquiagem, conhecer os bastidores de surgimento de produtos e marcas icônicos, bem como fotografias de maquiagens vintage celebridades e suas maquiagens icônicas, esse livro é pra você. kind of moved by how makeup is used as a tool and treated as an art to transform people and how everyone has so much beauty in them… what if umiyak na lang ako! Now, he is one of the most notable makeup artists of our generation and seeing him live his truth and release such popular makeup products is very inspiring. When Fern approached him so passionately he felt as if he was not good enough for her and she was doing it out of pity.I in fact, went to a company halloween party as a very convincing Betty Boop using techniques I garnered from this tome. I should also note that the instructions regarding application are far from ample, but personally I skimmed over these parts.
