More About the Author

I grew up in Los Angeles surrounded by beauty and the entertainment industry. Sadly, I was not a classically pretty girl and was told often that I was overweight and needed facial plastic surgery from family members and their friends, as early as the age of 7. I was given perms and crazy a-symmetrical haircuts, many failed attempts to make me "beautiful".

Finally, in the middle of high school, my plastic surgery appointment was booked. Of course, I refused and instead decided that I needed to take the way I looked into my own hands. I experimented with makeup and made tons of embarrassing mistakes. A not so fond memory was a smokey eye look that was confused for a black eye by a concerned school mate. His concern was replaced with laughter when he realized that both eyes were symmetrical. Horrifying. I finally got it when I stopped trying to create something that wasn't there and instead began to work with my natural features.

I believe the way you look should represent who you are as a person and how you want to be perceived. I write books to empower women by teaching them how to create whatever look that is. I share amazing tricks and tips that I've learned in my over 20 years in the beauty, fashion and entertainment business where I've worked with thousands of women in various fields from celebrities, fashion designers, high powered executives, scientists, athletes and musicians. Ultimately my goal is to help women everywhere find their own beauty.

Format: Paperback
this is a fun yet slightly predictable book. It starts off with the basics of eyes, the tools, eye shapes, false lashes etc. It is fairly repetitive of other makeup books in that respect but Chang keeps it quick and to the point, I like that. She then goes into the fun stuff, she does more than just your basic smokey eye look and your daytime work look. She uses bright and vibrant colors, i believe there is a look with some rhinestones on it, and some fun lip looks. As for step by step looks, she only has 2, and they are how to acheive the smokey look. The other eye looks in the book simply give you the color she uses and a tool to apply it. So for beginners looking on a how to, this might not be a really helpful books, but for those who have the basics of makeup technique down, replicating the looks is easy to do. Througout the book, she has a variety of eye shapes but not a variety of skin tones. Overall it isn't a bad book to have in the collection, I can see myself looking at it for a nice quick and easy look if i'm in a makeup rut.

I got this book as a gift and plan to buy 3 more for all my makeup junkie friends! I'm a busy mom of 2 beautiful and super active boys who never gave up her love of makeup. I don't have time to go to the Mac counter to learn how to do a smokey eye and now I don't have to. Chang-Babaian lays it all out for you. She also states that you don't have to throw out your shimmery eyeshadow just because you're 35 plus. As a Latina, I like the fact that women of all ethnicities are included. The women look real and beautiful instead of model-types. I know this is a book I will return to again and again.

Format: Paperback
I really liked this book when I got it, and then I realized why I liked it. I already own it. Actually -twice. This book is essentially parts of Kevyn Aucoin's "Making Faces" and "Face/Forward" but with no acknowledgment for inspiration. Everything from the fonts, to the photography, to the names of the looks is all Aucoin. I'm not saying the author did this on purpose, but I bet that she is familiar with these beauty tomes which unwittingly guided her when she started to design her own book.

It's too bad- because the book is filled with great tips and easy-to-follow instructions. However, Aucoin died a decade ago, so he doesn't have a voice in this. I feel that it's only fair to acknowledge his work.

This book is a pretty big disappointment. I was expecting lots and lots of ideas on different ways on how to wear eye make up with different colors and different types of eye shadows - matt, shimmers, and glitters. But, sadly there are just a few and they are not special at all. The only real step-by-step that includes several photo's for each step is the part on smokey eyes. That's it. I'm really shocked why so many people rate this book so high.

I ordered Style Eyes after seeing it at a friend's house and I couldn't be happier. This is definitely one of the best 'how to' make up books I've owned. There are so many looks, techniques and tips which are all presented in a clean, simple, easy to understand format. The photos are gorgeous and purposeful. All of the models are fresh, believable and convince me that these looks are do-able for 'me'. I found it alot different than the Kevin Aucoin books I own. It completely stands on it's own merit! I will definitely refer to Style Eyes for quick instruction when I want to update and/or stylize new looks. Without question, 5 big gold stars!!

There are some good basic tutorials in here and a decent smoky eye tutorial. However, almost all the other looks are a version of:
1. primer
2. ONE shadow color, maybe two
3. liner
4. mascara.

If I wanted to experiment with those simple looks, I could just do it on my own. If you are looking for a book of many different ways to use shadows - this is not it. If you are looking for a very basic eye makeup book - this is OK. I recommend the Kevin Aucoin and Rae Morris books instead for different ways to use different colors and depths of shadowing and lining (and those books also include the basics).

I really found her tips very useful and now know how to do the smokey eye look the right way. The nice part about the book is that it isn't centered around a certain face, but allows you to accentuate your look based on the crease of your eye and the structure of your face.

I've gotten a lot of compliments after following the book's steps one by one, even by makeup artists in the department stores. I highly recommend it because it's easy to follow with pictures which I think are useful, especially since I'm a very visual learner.

I own a number of books centered on how to apply makeup but think this is by far the best book out of all of them. Definitely worth every penny.
