For ten years, I've been painting faces for carnivals, parties, Halloween - you name it - this book can take rank beginners and allow them to paint very professional looking faces. The instructions are easy to follow, and elaborate on multiple techniques, including sponging and using different brush tips to achieve different effects. I highly recommend it - a word of caution- use only high quality face paints as they cover and blend better than the cheapos! Enjoy!

Excellent for any birthday party or special event. Simple enough for the beginner but also interesting full face designs. Great book.

I did the vampiress and japanese doll faces from this book on my daughter and friend. We made an errand to our local "clown store" and all the entertainers said how great they were. Those were just 2 of the fun face designs out of the book. The wicked reptile & colorful butterfly faces from this book are also very nice. There are over 40 faces!

I bought this for my little girl cause she loves unicorns and butterflies face painting. I have a decent catalog but wanted some new ideas, so I bought this book. The designs are more Halloween like (scary) than your everyday jolly facepainting. I have not use it at all, I put it away for when my daughther is older in case she still likes facepainting.

I am a beginner of face painting and wanted to see something in writing on a step-by-step instruction. Also some techniques that do not come by just by watching YouTube videos. But this book was disappointing. The patterns in the book weren't popular with any of my kids, so it was effectively useless. After purchasing this book, I'm still depending on websites and YouTube videos. I wish there was a book that teaches some simple pictures, as well as giving more technique reviews.

Generally speaking, ALL Usborne books are great. This one is no exception.

It is a great book to give you some great techniques. You learn step by step different kinds of faces and then you can use those ideas to create your own way of doing it. The publishers do not waste space giving you every possible example of a vampire or dog or whatever. You learn what you need quick & easy and then you make your own ideas work.

If you do not know how or have been out of practice (like me) or looking for some new ideas, this is a great book.

I purchased this book expecting it to have more pictures and be more in depth, but it would be acceptable for beginners.
