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.

This book is not as detailed as his first book, Makeup Makeovers, but more of a compliment. This book focuses specifically on the Bride and Bridesmaids to create that picture-perfect look of timeless beauty for that Special Day. Stunning photographs with classic and timeless looks. A great inspiration for the novice and advance makeup artist. Get both of his books if you can afford to but if you have to choose one or the other, his first book is the best!

I have the author's book Makeup Makeovers, which I did like very much. However, this book is pretty much a rerun of the first. I did not learn anything new. Pictures are the same. And there are no pictures or discussion of the challenges of the mother of the bride, grandmother of the bride age group. I did learn if the bride's hair is up, the attendants hair should be down and to have the bride's lipstick in the groom's pocket. Those tips were not worth the price of the book. Buy one or the other, but you sure do not need both. I should have tried the library first.

I decided to do my own makeup for my wedding. My wedding pictures turned out great. My bridesmaids and I looked wonderful! The step by step instructions were easy and a lot of it applies to everyday makeup. The photographs in the book are beautiful as well. I am able to translate that to everyday looks and that makes it useful after the wedding.

I purchased this book as part of a deal to start with but as I am getting married in 6 months it is a great book to have not only for the different styles they show but also for what time of day they would best suit.
This book is absolutely amazing and I would recommend it to anyone!

As a professional makeup artist, all I can say is that Mr. Jones is a true master of beauty. These wedding looks are guaranteed to inspire and excite makeup artists and brides alike.

The look(s) are soft and natural rather than heavily made up. Mr. Jones shares his inside secrets specifically for brides...so that their wedding day look is "picture" perfect. It's too bad I can only give this item 5 stars as it truly deserves at least 10 :-)

I was amazed at how easy the tips in here seemed. And I tried out several to add to my regular makeup and I got tons of compliments! Its a great book. Although I do think Kevin Aucion's Making Faces does a better job of going step by step on how to do all of the techniques. Its a good book, with stunning pictures!

to a makeup artists' library. This man has done wonderful work on people I know. He teaches clearly and thoroughly. He is developing his own cosmetic line, but has helped to design the incarnation of Mary Kay Cosmetics make-up line prior to the mineral products. He knows whereof he speaks!
