This is an approximately one hour DVD on makeup application by a "Hollywood" makeup artist named Christina Rodriguez. Her IMDb record shows she hasn't accomplished much at all in Hollywood. I found this in my local library, but if you bought this on Amazon it would cost almost $40.00 (printed on demand). This is an amateurishly produced video. It's harshly lit and sometimes the camera operator doesn't seem to know what he's doing. The first model has inappropriately colored hair for this kind of thing (it's harsh fake red). The MUA's own makeup isn't applied all that well, and she applies the blush on her model way too heavily. The "natural" makeup done first doesn't look very natural at all. Her night version of the makeup is just a retread of the Marilyn Monroe look - not a smoky eye or colorful one. You won't learn anything from this you don't already know if you've looked at one decent makeup instruction book. She mentions three products by brand name (probably paid to), and leaves the rest unmentioned, though I did notice she uses a few Real Techniques brushes. I'm really glad I didn't buy this, because it really isn't worth much at all.
