“In a youth-obsessed culture, aging can be difficult. But celebrity makeup artists Johnson and Linter provide an age-defying beauty guide that enables women to minimize flaws and maximize their beauty. Unlike most beauty books, this resource focuses on the concerns of women entering middle age and beyond, such as sun damage, hormonal acne, sagging skin, fine lines, and thinning hair. Readers are given step-by-step makeup techniques and advice on how to deal with the inevitable changes and look their best. Celebrities and models also speak candidly about their beauty secrets and regimes. Included are color photos of actress Sigourney Weaver, singer Debbie Harry, and models Veronica Webb, Carol Alt, and Cheryl Tiegs, among others. The shots of models with and without makeup illustrate the differences correct techniques can make. For those considering cosmetic procedures, a team of medical experts discuss pros, cons, and alternatives.
Verdict: This book takes the fear out of getting older. The authors thoroughly cover what women can do to look good as they age. A highly recommended reference readers will turn to time and again.”

that was it...until I read " The Makeup Wakeup". I was inspired and bought some of their recommendations, sat down and started
playing, following the very easy to understand visual directions. Suddenly, I looked so much younger and, I might add, so much
prettier! I can't believe it! My eyes really sparkle, my brows are now brushed and filled in and I've thrown away all the old makeup
that had been sitting in my drawer for the last ten years. I'm even using a soft colored lip pencil which defines the shape of my
mouth. This book is FABULOUS!!!! Thank you Lois and Sandy, you've changed my life. P.S. My husband keeps telling me how
lovely I look.
I look forward to adding some new cosmetics and tools based on the chapter suggestions and my makeup kit's deficiencies. Surprisingly, I found that my fav makeup items were included in the authors' recommendations, so I was already "onto" some key makeup items that work well for aging skin and faces! Now that I know so much more about which processes, products and tools will likely yield a favorable result, I'll shop more confidently at the higher-priced makeup counters... I may even save money because I can more easily avoid buying the items that are aging and/or dated.
Kudos to the authors! And many thank yous to you both for affirming and inspiring this lady who has accepted her reality that she'll never look 25 again!
I enjoyed seeing all the models from the late seventies and early eighties, that I remembered from my first years of buying Vogue, and having an interest, sorry, obsession with Fashion. Some I hadn't seen since their height of circulation in the fashion magazines, for instance, Nancy Donohue!! Very inspiring to see that being over Forty, doesn't mean you've lost your sex appeal or your looks (Even though Hollywood does not agree, especially when it comes to actresses!)
There are step by step photo instructions for not only a basic every day makeup application, but for visual effects as well!! Buy this book!! Even if you're younger, I think you would come away with a lot of useful information from this book!! Sorry this is not a wordy review, but there are only so many ways to say Fabulous!!

Good make-up tips. I wish it were only make-up that made people look good, however. Alas, many of the models and the authors themselves have done more than just use make-up. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Almin1
