I liked the title and cover of this book.
Vintage85
It showed illustrations and photos of the look with the eyes open only, not closed which is not very helpful for beginners like me.
I love RED
This is a very detailed & informative book.

I have to write a review in defense of this fabulous book. After turning 40 last year, I have come to the conclusion that life is too short to continue doing the basic "lightest shade over the entire eye, middle shade on the upper lid, darkest shade in the crease", and all in shades of taupe. I bought this book on a whim to try some of the crazy ideas on the weekends, and loved them so much that I have moved on to wearing the more conservative ones during the week to my office job. I am making notes on each one I try, as some looks are too dramatic for the daytime, some are best if paired with darker or brighter lipstick, etc. I agree that the photos are kind of unattractive, but so what? I did not buy this book to display the photos. I like these looks on me, and that is what's important. It helps to not be afraid of color and to be able to figure out how to tone down some of the shades. I also have a large collection of Bare Escentuals glimmers and glimpses, which are significantly more subtle than the cream and other eye shadows the book recommends. Definitely not the book for those just learning to apply eye makeup--but for those who want to try something unexpected and fun, who want to experiment, who want to look different every day, who love colors and can wear colors with confidence, and who love love love makeup and painting faces!

this book is okay but not what i expected. like the other poster mentioned most of the women in this book look to be teenagers. i buy a lot of makeup books and this one definitely has a juvenile versus a grown woman feel. honestly i probably wouldn't replicate many of the looks but i do see the artistic value of the book so i'm glad i got it a low price. i noticed the author has a book for teens and i wonder if there are some of the same pics in this book. i also agree that in many pics the eye is open and it would be far more beneficial if the eye was closed so you could see the full effect....maybe even having a pic of one close and one open eye would be valuable. i think this would be a great book for a young girl interested in makeup. many of the models are white, there are a few ethnic models but not as many as i'd like to see. there are some interesting tips in the book so all is not lost.

"Candy" is a good adjective. The eye makeup in this book is bright and colorful. How useful this book will be depends on how adventurous the wearer is. For those in search of classy, day looks, this book is not what you're looking for. However, if you need some theatrical inspiration, or you're bold enough to wear screaming jewel tones whenever and wherever you please, or you just naturally gravitate to "funky" and "wild", then you might find the looks herein interesting enough to try. The attached video includes a quick flip through the book so you can make up (pun intended) your own mind.

Unlike the first reviewer, I enjoyed this book. I agree that most of the looks are catered to a younger audience. If you like the cover, you'll enjoy its funky and unique styles. There are some every day and less dramatic styles, but the strength of this book lies in its more playful and avant-garde looks; so if this doesn't appeal to you, you might want to look into a more traditional make up book.

On the downside, some of these looks require a skilled hand to pull off that no amount of reading (only practice) will give you; but by and large the looks can be achieved by beginners. I also would have liked for there to be more closed eye illustrations to better demonstrate how to apply the eye shadow, as the first reviewer suggested. However, in most cases the illustrations and descriptions are sufficient enough to create the look- but still, it would have been nice to have a closed eye illustration on each page for clarification.

I disagree with the other reviewer that the fresh faced/light foundation look is out of place with the more dramatic eye. The colorful eyes are in perfect balance with a subtle lip-gloss shown in most of the pictures; and because this book focuses on a younger aesthetic, it is completely appropriate. Furthermore, while the models are wearing a minimal base, there are no "blackheads", "pimples", or "oily skin" shown. Some of the models' looks include natural eyebrows and -gasp- freckles! I really appreciate the use of natural looking models and the author's choice to showcase their natural beauty in lieu of a heavy, overly pruned, cookie-cutter look.

Over all, I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants some inspiration for more high fashion, funky, and hip looks.

I was searching for a book of makeup tutorials. I tend to focus on my eyes, so this book seemed to be a good choice. The makeup on the cover looks beautiful, and I figured the looks in the book would all be similar to this. Boy, was I wrong. The looks in this book are horrid. The majority of the looks seem as if they were done by a five year old. Some are just one swatch of color swept on the lid, not blended at all, and does not need a tutorial in order to do. There is one look featuring three dots on the eye... again, that doesn't need to be explained, and it looked horrible anyway. I would only recommend this book for children ten years old and younger who have absolutely no idea about makeup and have never put any on before. Even then, I would say there are books much more helpful than this one. Oh, and just so you know, all the models in the book are preteens and younger kids also. They really should have listed that this book was for little children, not teens and definitely not twenty-somethings.
