5.0 out of 5 stars This was exactly what I needed! March 27, 2005
By Lisa
This is the third instructional makeup DVD I bought and it is far and away the best. The others PALE in comparison. What really makes this one amazing is the fact that the artists giving the instruction are the best in the business. These people regularly work on A-List celebrities.

I have only had it for a day and I've already learned a TON! I highly recommend this DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brush With Success February 6, 2006
I would definitely have to disagree with the woman from Canada because I found this video very informative. In fact, I've saved more than $1,600.00 so far by bypassing expensive sales pitches at makeup counters. The superstar makeup artists have great tips and demonstrate makeup techniques in clear detail-much better than in the stores. I would rather learn these skills sitting on my own sofa and practice on myself instead of going to Macy's or Bloomingdales or other department stores to learn.

A real classy video.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is it. It really works!! November 7, 2006
I almost didn't buy the DVD after reading Cheri's review but then I went for it and boy, am I glad I did! this is NOT a DVD for professionals, which is exactly what I was looking for!! I wanted useful, practical advice to improve my makeup. And this DVD gave me all that and more! It's great and I especially liked the fact that there are 3 well-known celebrity makeup artists. This DVD really has something for everybody, I threw a party last weekend for my girlfriends and we had a blast! We were able to follow the directions and apply the makeup for each of us! I don't know what the problem of the reviewer was, of course it's not for professionals, if you are a makeup artist you're supposed to know these things already! Bottom line, it's a great find and worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money April 1, 2006
By ab
This video is really great. It basically covers everything you need to know and shares great tips and tricks. I really enjoyed the fact that the video had 3 different artists, so you had 3 different ways of doing techniques. As far as the review being a waste of time, I have to disagree. It didn't show a lot about color but I think that is for the individual to interpret. The beauty of the whole video was about enhancing and not creating masks, which most people are looking for and are not getting from a cosmetic counter.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only for the beginner October 26, 2006
Verified Purchase
This tape is for the absolute beginner who knows nothing, and I do mean nothing, about make up application. If you loved make up as a teen or have experimented as an adult, you already know everything shown in this dvd. If you are looking for a tape that shows techniques for shading, hiding flaws, creating the kind of make up looks that you see in magazines, do not buy this tape. I'm sure there will be women who will find this type of truly rudimentary explanation illuminating, but do not buy this tape if you want to learn professional techniques. I was especially disappointed by title, it implied to me that there would be specific lessons in creating different looks, what they mean is there are two looks, (one for day, one for night) for many of the different ethnic models, and not even two looks for each of the models. Really not a terrific tape.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gave me lots of good tips! August 17, 2006
I've been borrowing lots of makeup books and some of them have been very good. Imagine my shock and pleasure to find this DVD in my local library. Anyway, nothing beats watching the actual makeup application and seeing for yourself the transformation. That being said, this dvd was great. The artists did it step by step and so it was easy to follow and imitate! I also liked the fact they had different nationalities as models (since I'm not white) and different artists. I preferred the guy makeup artists. My only wish was that they talked about the good colors for people (like different eye color goes with what, and maybe do it on the models, etc.) Otherwise, I love this dvd and I might even buy one for my collection!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad September 12, 2007
Verified Purchase
My main complaint is, I wish they would have broken down the steps, of the technique more and gone into more depth. The "Extras" section of this DVD doesn't really go into detail. I was a little dissapointed with this. But they still gave some useful tips and it was very helpful actually seeing the application of the makeup. I still don't know @ paying full $25 price for this DVD. I would try to find this used or in your local library.
