The faces that Kevyn Aucoin has made are stellar and lumi nous: Cher,
Tina Turner, Vanessa Williams, and Julia Roberts are but a few of the
stars in Aucoins galaxy of clientele. More than making do, making up is
the art of achieving your own special look, and Aucoin insists that there
are no hard and fast rules--except for the obvious ones, such as Dont put
lipstick in your eye. The first section offers, in his own words, Aucoins
favorite ideas, tricks, and techniques for enhancing, defining, and altering
facial features with makeup. Youll learn how to care for your skin, what
foundation to use with your skin type, and transformational magic for that
central player in the drama of beauty: eyes. Through his gallery of
noncelebrity before-and-afters, Aucoin shows clearly how to use his
fundamentals to achieve dozens of different looks. The gorgeous final
chapter reads like a list of exotic characters in a play --the Vamp, the
Siren, the Diva.... In fact, such celebrities as Isabella Rosselini, Demi
Moore, and Nicole Kidman pose as these dramatic, splendidly made-up
characters. These sumptuous photographs are accompanied by full-page
illustrations listing the ingredients required to create these looks as well as
simple directions for achieving them. The introduction by the author, at
once amusing and endearing (...trying to conceal the fact that I was a gay,
effeminate, hyperactive, adopted child with a serious lisp in southern
Louisiana would have been like trying to hide Dolly Parton in a string
bikini!), and Aucoins commentary throughout, makes Making Faces a
unique reference book--beautiful, informative, and personal.

This book was very helpful to me as a photographer who works primarily
with female models. Ive recreated the techniques described in this book on
my models with spectacular results. As someone who can not always work
with a make-up artist, Ive found this book to be extremely helpful in my
work with female models.
The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow. This book is a great
make-up guide for beginners, providing looks that are easy to copy as well
as inspiration for any artists own make-up creations.
