Making Faces by Kevyn Aucoin Making Faces - Kevyn Aucoin 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. Features: * Illustrates the basics of makeup application * Step-by-step instructions make learning a snap * Teaches you how to apply everything from concealer to fake eyelashes * Shows how the basics are used to create dramatic looks * Perfect for an aspiring makeup artist This book was very helpful to me as a photographer who works primarily with female models.
