On the downside, some of these looks require a skilled hand to pull off that no amount of reading (only practice) will give you; but by and large the looks can be achieved by beginners. I also would have liked for there to be more closed eye illustrations to better demonstrate how to apply the eye shadow, as the first reviewer suggested. However, in most cases the illustrations and descriptions are sufficient enough to create the look- but still, it would have been nice to have a closed eye illustration on each page for clarification.
I disagree with the other reviewer that the fresh faced/light foundation look is out of place with the more dramatic eye. The colorful eyes are in perfect balance with a subtle lip-gloss shown in most of the pictures; and because this book focuses on a younger aesthetic, it is completely appropriate. Furthermore, while the models are wearing a minimal base, there are no "blackheads", "pimples", or "oily skin" shown. Some of the models' looks include natural eyebrows and -gasp- freckles! I really appreciate the use of natural looking models and the author's choice to showcase their natural beauty in lieu of a heavy, overly pruned, cookie-cutter look.
Over all, I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants some inspiration for more high fashion, funky, and hip looks.Read more ›
Now for the hate:
One of my pet peeves is having eyebrows ridiculously unkempt or bushy, they look overpowering to a face, especially a teenager appearing in a photo shoot. There ought not be two pages dedicated to a picture, diagram and explanation of taming and shaping brows when over 75% of the girls featured in the book have some of the worst brow shape I have ever seen. One poor girl had a face of an angel but brows that looked as if they belonged on an older man! Worse off the artists insists on brushing eyebrows upwards creating a clown effect. Kevyn Aucoin would shudder at this if he were alive and darn well very near pluck those brows to perfection.
So here you have it, my love hate relationship with this book. I don't LOVE it all the way, nor do I hate it entirely so. I'll keep it for color reference and SOME color placement and work my own ideas I get from YOU TUBE to polish up the look.
I wouldn't pay full price for this book. Get a low priced used copy and see for yourself.
