Same as Kevin Aucoins books, with osme updated looks.
on November 22, 2009
Basically it was an ok book. It's a good gift for someone that doesn't really know how to do make up at all or someone that is getting older and is stuck in the past. The books is all about how to look good at any age. there are many differnt looks that cover office, vaction, date, and high drama daytime.
When it comes to differnt ethnicities it kinda glosses over them. Skin tones come in Porcelain, Fair. light olive(light toned asian,latino/mediterranean) Dark olive(medium toned people like(darker asians, medium toned latinos/mediterranean) and Deep(black folks) basically I find the pallet that offers for each group a bit limiting. It's great for a day time or office looks but don't limit yourself for going out and having fun looks.
Skin care: Wash your face, exfloliate, tone, use mosturizer and eye cream. basic stuff everyone shoud know.
The best thing about this book is the contour and hightlighting section. although it is something i know about there is more detailed in the book. Also how to contour your lips so you can get more symetery.
If your in your teens-early 30's and are looking for fun looks, don't buy the book.
If you don't know anything about make-up or love collecting books then this is for you.
The easiest cheapest way to get new great looks is Youtube just in case your wondering.
