This book is seriously outdated. I was required to purchase this textbook when attending a community college for my preliminary classes. Since graduating, I have become a full time professional in the beauty industry and there's a lot of other great materials out there that will truly benefit you as an artist and should be looked at as an alternative prior to purchasing this book.
Don't get my wrong, I love a classic, and Corson's Stage Makeup text is a classic of theatrical makeup and really should belong in the library of anyone who is really serious about stage makeup techniques. Thudium, however, has produced a wonderful text that is super accessible to students, has tons of color photos, lots of great makeup looks, and is a fraction of the price of the Corson text. For students who are maybe taking a makeup class to see if they are interested in the field or as an elective can get a great introduction to the art of stage makeup without buying an exhaustive and expensive volume like the Corson. The images are really detailed, large and gorgeous. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to know more about a wide variety of theatrical makeup techniques.
The recipient of this book was quite happy and will be able to use it in her craft. The step by step process is very useful. Some of the products used for stage make up may not be as current, since the book was published in the 70's. There are many new products in the market that should be included in the next publication. For the amount I paid for, this book is a great resource.
