Format: Paperback
As a professional makeup artist I was hoping to find some answers to film and television lighting and camera effects but found none. I also find the book lacked any really good info about how to apply maakeup. The techniques listed were so general and basic they could only be for a novice. The real shocker is in incorrect historical references. For example, the author states that "Gone With the Wind" was set in the 1770's. The civil war, however, took place in the mid 1800's and is the setting for that movie.

There are step by step photographs in this book that are truly amazing; as a whole it is a comprehensive assembly of all the information that a makeup artist needs and is essential both for the novice and professional. The author makes the point that the makeup in 'Gone with the Wind' was designed for a 1930s audience. The website for the author's training school (the make-up centre.co.uk) claims Oscar nominees amongst her graduates; this is the info they started with.

I bought this book because it was required in my theatrical makeup class. Turns out I diodn't really need the class. All I had to do was buy this book. This book was very helpful. It shows you how to make certain parts of your gace appear thinner or larger. Definitely recommend it.

There is no reference on how to makeup for African Americans. What to use, how to use it, what to highlight.
