Review

Ajoke Kokodoko, Oakland P.L., Library Journal Express 3/25/11
“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.”

Oprah.com, April 2011
“full of sharp advice”

I'm 74 and havn't really bothered with eye make up for the last several years; a little foundation, some blush and lip gloss;
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 found many important and easy suggestions throughout this book. The authors understand our issues and provide meaningful advice to help us aging ladies look our best. I have enough makeup items to follow their makeup steps - and I'm thrilled with my updated, improved 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!

The books is absolutely the best I've found for women over the ages of 30 & 40, on how to look your best. It's also better than any magazine piece I've ever read on the subject. The advice and techniques are excellent and it's nice to see how some of the biggest super models have maintained their looks without extensive cosmetic surgery. I modeled in my earlier days and learned proper skincare and advanced makeup application techniques, beauty secrets, etc. but that really doesn't prepare you for adapting those skills to a mature face and skin. Thanks so much to the authors for sharing their knowledge and providing so many great photos. I'm especially grateful that they recommended specific products, as most books do not. For example, I've acquired books by Bobbi Brown and other beauty gurus which were full of great pictures, but it was sooooo frustrating that you were never told what specific products and/or colors were used on the models. Now, if the authors would travel around to major cities to give clinics and individual instruction, that would be the icing on the cake ... no matter what the cost, I'd be there!

The last book I ever thought I'd be buying was a "How To" makeup book. After all, I'd been wearing makeup since I was fourteen and I knew everything, right? Maybe not. I'd look in the mirror and wonder why what I'd been doing for years wasn't working any more. With this book, I learned that was exactly my problem. My face wasn't the same, so my makeup shouldn't be either. I wound up throwing out most of my makeup and starting over. With far fewer products (you don't have to buy high-end either), I got a much better result. I highly recommend this book to every woman over 40 who wears makeup and to those who think they can't. When you see the before-and-after shots, you will realize that a lot of pretty women look that way because of carefully applied makeup. I've just discovered Sandy's makeup tutorials on youtube as well, which I plan to watch. My only question, Sandy, is why you apply light shadow on the lid AFTER the eyeliner, not before?

I thoroughly loved this book!! I thought over the years of makeovers, and buddying up with Dept. Store make up artists, I pretty much knew everything. Not True!! There were so many inovative, and informative ideas in this book, and I loved the carefree, "Hell, we're old" sort of fun tone to it!
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!!

The Makeup Wakeup is possibly the best beauty book I've ever read. No other beauty book has lessons, and information like this one! The eye makeup chapter really explains how to do your eyes with professional results. The cosmetic surgery chapter is the first of its kind I've seen to offer inside secrets and options for REAL women. Simply amazing!!!
