He has a nice section detailing different makeup looks which worked through the ages, such as the 50’s lip and 30’s thin brow, film noir and hollywood bombshell looks. I tried out two of the faces last night, and my boyfriend loved the smoky eye look on me! As far as de goes, I may use what I learned for Halloween or for a costume party, it is definitely not for everyday wear. Jika saya hanya boleh punya buku bertopik make up, maka buku ini yang akan saya pilih.

Kevyn Aucoin is inspiring, and his artistic aret really shows more in this book than in his others. Any makeup enthusiast has to rate familiar with Aucoin’s work and this is a must read for them. I especially loved the history of the “Eyebrow” 30s thin brows and “lip” 50s full lip. They also introduced me to a new star: Everyone who loves make-up or wants to learn more about it should definitely get this book.

Jan 05, Dyah Rinni rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: For those who are makeup artists, or are simply interested in makeup, this book is amazing! This was the first book on beauty I encountered that suggested to me that makeup can be used to express a feeling, a facet of yourself, an aspiration of who you wish to be in dell moment. Like so many great ones, he passed away way, way too young.

Making Faces by Kevyn Aucoin

But, a true artist can’t give away all of their secrets. Refresh and try again. I tried to recreate one of Kevyn’s looks on Lisa Marie Presley, which has always been one of my favourites. There are pictures so you can see exactly where the aucoiin liner goes, how you should trace the lip shape, etc.


Well, this is a “how to” kind of book. What makes it worthwhile is all the ways it goes above and beyond that basic goal. I would have loved to see more vibrant looks, like Green eyeshadow, blue lipstick, a mardi gras look, vampire costume look, punk or goth, and some REALLY fun, maybe even halloween-inspired looks.

And though he went over eyeliner he nev As a self-described “Makeup Addict” this books was great at showing the different looks Kevyn Aucoin achieved as a makeup artist and how one would recreate these looks at home. He even specifies what consistency each product should be, such as powder versus liquid blush, pencil eye liner versus liquid eye liner, and lip gloss versus lipstick.

The only reason I’m giving it four stars is because it’s a bit dated, and I would’ve liked to know how to use some of the tools that are available these days, like liquid foundation brushes, eyeshadow brushes, etc.

Trivia About Making Faces. This is what I mean when I say that I only read books with pictures, lots and lots of really really big and beautiful pictures.

This is a makeup book that shows specific kinds of makeup jobs, most of them very dramatic. It starts out with basic instructions on how to make up your face, eyes, and lips. She laid low in school and loved romance novels.

As most state, it’s important to emphasize personal best features and tailor makeup needs to suit fl and individual purpose. No trivia or quizzes yet. What was I thinking? I’m not saying he had to go nuts with special effects makeup, but a bit more diversity in coloring would have been nice.

Rest in peace, Kevin! This book is great for beginners who want to get a brief but informative look into the makeup industry.

What I found a bit boring about the book is how similar many of the looks are. The celeb pictures are stunning; look for Drew Barrymore, Winona Ryder and many others.


Mar 20, Mia rated it it was amazing. We may never be Kdvyn royalty, but we can look like it with Kevyn’s step-by-step makeup instruction. Kkevyn does a GREAT job of summarizing styles throughout the decades and gives you step-by-step instructions with color and makeup suggestions for you to replicate the looks.

If you wanted to grow up to be a glamorous Hollywood icon, then this book is for you. Jul 10, Rori Rischak rated it it was amazing Shelves: My biggest concern here is my eyebrows. He also stuck to many neutral shade looks, not showing anything goth, vibrant, or sparkly. The only thing that would have made this book better would have been more individualized instructions regarding face shapes, eye shapes, and fixing problem areas. A friend gave me this book when I first came out 12 years ago.

Even though it is form the 90s, the looks aren’t dated at all.

Making Faces

And though he went over eyeliner he never really described how one would really go about recreating the looks for themselves. It focuses on makeup photography and tutorials. I appreciate people who think outside the box, and aren’t afraid to be who they are, no matter what society thinks.

Kevyn Aucoin’s story of growing up, the stories of his siblings, and their role in the development of his talent is compelling and inspiring. Aug 21, Samantha Glasser rated it really liked it.

Back then I was probably more interested in the pictures than anything else this book had to offer it has a lot!

May 09, mrs. I’m not sure how many times I’ve read this This book and I go back. It is funny to see his contouring and “baking” how to’s from become such a trend in
