Making Faces – Kevyn Aucoin

11 Mar

I cannot recommend this book, Making Faces by Kevyn Aucoin, more highly. If you love cosmetics, there is no other book that I think is more essential to your bookshelf than this one. The late, great Kevyn Aucoin shares his secrets for flawless makeup application, a myriad of looks for day and night, and how to transform your face from blah to brilliant. If that’s not enough for you, there are also stunningly gorgeous full-page pictorials of celebrities made over to look like other celebrities – you will not believe Jean Harlow is really Courtney Love. I used this book for Halloween one year to make myself Marilyn Monroe, and the advice was invaluable. This book is a how-to manual, a stunning picture book, and a coffee table objet d’art, all wrapped into one. A must-have for anyone, male or female, who enjoys makeup and sees it not just as a boring necessity but as an art form unto itself.
