About the Author

Robert Jones did not necessarily start out on this career path. Robert showed promise as an artist as early as age 6 and was pushed, or maybe we should say, encouraged to pursue painting and drawing. He competed and won a scholarship to study at a prestigious art school at age 11. After seven long years of intense art training he wanted more and decided to get more. From there he attended a performing arts high school where he majored in theatre. It is there he first dabbled in makeup, applying painting principles to the face. Growing with three sisters he always had the opportunity to prove he was naturally gifted at working with hair. He was also able to put that talent to use in school performances. Upon graduating, his advisors expressed their belief that he should pursue his natural gifts. From there he attended school and worked to get his license to do hair.

After a number of years in a salon, he once again wanted more. With his life motto “just jump and figure out how to make it work later,” he got the opportunity to work with new models at an agency. From there one thing lead to another and the rest is history. Now with more than 20 something years in the beauty industry he has traveled the world working with so many amazing people.

His work has appeared in countless magazines such as Allure, Vogue, Marie Claire, InStyle, Shape, Life and Style, Glamour, Brides Magazine, and Elle. He has worked with celebrities such as Cindy Crawford, Claire Danes, Selena Gomez, Eve Best, Sheryl Crow, Laura Linney, Natascha McElhone, Delta Burke, Diahann Carroll and many others. He has worked with beauty clients such as Mary Kay, Almay, Olay, Avon, Nexxus, Clinique, Chanel, Prescriptive and Christian Dior, as well as fashion clients such as Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales just to name a few.

He has a signature line of brushes and beauty tools available online at http://www.robertjonesbeauty.com and will be in stores soon. Robert also has an online makeup academy that can help anyone become the makeup expert that he or she wishes to be at http://www.robertjonesbeautyacademy.com. He is a bestselling author of five books, including Makeup Makeovers; Makeup Makeovers: Weddings; Looking Younger; Makeup Makeovers: Beauty Bible; and Makeup Makeovers in 5,10,15,20 Minutes.

Robert has lived in Europe and New York, but now has chosen to be back in Texas, with his other half Chip and fur baby Gigi, as much as possible, especially since work keeps him in the travel mode constantly.

Lots of good information on contouring.
LindyLise
Also, nowhere does the book tell you what product line or actual color name was being used so it will be very hard to recreate the look accurately.

Can not tell you how many times I have had to carry more than one of his books around and now just one with everything.

I waited for about 6 months to purchase this book when it finally was released. Then it arrives and it is the SAME book as Robert Jones' original Makeup Makeovers. This was so disappointing. As a makeup artist who's constantly trying to get new, fresh inspiration, I was really frustrated by this book. How can he publish the same book with the same TEXT and PICTURES again from a few years ago? I hope everyone reads these reviews because it will save you time and money if you know that this is the same as the other book. As someone else mentioned, there is one difference- and that's the added "Wedding" section at the end. To be honest, its not worth it even for that. There are better books out there for wedding makeup. Anyway, I loved Makeup Makeovers and I still do, just don't buy this one thinking you're getting new info from Robert Jones. You're not- it will be the same thing again.

I gave it 5 stars because the book itself is good info- but, not if you have one of his previously published books.

happy shopping :)

I love Robert Jones I think he is one of the best makeup artists around. His models never look really nade up just like themselves but better. I belong to his beauty academy and have learned so much for his site that this book was only a repeat of what I have learned from his Beauty Academy. I also have his book "Looking Younger" which is the same as this little book. The ONLY diference is that in "Makeup Makeovers Bible", is at the end of the book he has Bridal makeup just like is on is site. This book is the exact same as his other books but is smaller. If you have any of his other books save your money as you are just buying a duplicate.

This book is a very good summary, but do not be deluded into believing that it will give you a lot of new, cutting edge techniques.

The photos are incredible-- there is no other word to describe them; but I think the artists have kept a few secrets to themselves. If you look at the older models especially, the women in the "before" pics have wrinkles and lines and sagging skin that has absolutely vanished in the "after" shots. The techniques in the book do not enable you to perform equivalent feats of magic at home.

If you fancy yourself to be an accomplished make-up artist, you are probably already familiar with the majority of the techniques presented, most of which have to do with color-matching, contouring and shading. As I am 44 years old and fiercely interested in maintaining the appearance of youth, I pay close attention to people like Carmindy when I see them on TV...but I am not a makeup expert. I expected to get more than three or four tips from this book, but honestly, that's about all I got.

On the good side: It's an excellent gift for someone who hasn't yet acquired a thorough, up-to-date book on technique -- everything from choosing foundation texture based on skin type, to contouring based on facial features (face shape, eye distance, etc).

I of course already own all of robert's books! BUT this is a great was to have the best part of all three combined into one easy to carry book. Can not tell you how many times I have had to carry more than one of his books around and now just one with everything. AND most exciting there is an index in this book which makes it a breeze to find everything I want to refer to! As a makeup professional I can tell you this is the perfect makeup bible, the best makeup textbook around!

The good news is, you DO need one Robert Jones book in your collection. He is talented, and the tips and gorgeous photographs are great.
The bad news is, that never before have I seen so much content recycled into different books. He reuses the same exact text, art, tips, models, photos, EVERYTHING. He certainly has gotten mileage and his monies worth out of his text and photo shoots!
Do get the latest book, it is indeed great, but you only need one. The rest are all the same.

Having heard great things about Robert Jones, but never having been able to attend his workshops, I picked up this book hoping for a few good tips. I got a lot more than that! This is a fantastic guide to everything you need to know to take good care of your skin and find the cosmetics that work for you and make you feel your most beautiful!

Clearly written with terms and tools make the book available and applicable even to make-up novices, but the skills covered will be useful to even the most experienced. I am so glad I found this!

I bought this book for my girl friend and she loves it. She is an aspiring make-up artiste and although I think she's a really good one, she thinks she still needs some training, so I bought this book and she told me that there are things in there that she never knew. So this book 'bible' is a great addition to her growing collection of great make-up books. I'll recommend this book to anyone.
