I love Kevyn Aucoin, but this is the one of his books that I really didn't like. I didn't like the photos and I just didn't find the content very interesting. Making Faces and Face Forward are way better than The Art of Makeup. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

I have all of KA's books.. they are the like Bible's to me.

The fact is he was a master MUA and his work will live on forever ~~ everyone can learn from just looking at the photography.

A must read for every one who loves makeup.

I bought this book several months ago used on Amazon. Kevyn has always been my favorite makeup artist. Even though it doesn't share a lot of techniques, they are still relevant today and the pictures are amazing!

I feel sooooo bad saying this .. but I really didn't find this book helpful or interesting. I thought it was mostly just stories about celebs he's worked with and how he met them. I feel soo so so bad because I love Kevyn but really just didn't like this book. I didn't think there was enough info in it....

I bought this book when it originally came out in 1994. I own all four Kevyn Aucoin books. Perhaps this one is my favorite. As it has been pointed out in prior reviews, there aren't a lot of makeup tips in this book (or in any of KA books.) Kevyn Aucoin was known to guard his techniques vigilantly. That was his right, of course. I wonder, if he had known that his life was going to end to …Read more

I've been a Kevyn Aucoin fan for many, many years. All of his books are my prized possessions! I have learned so much from this lovely man. He was gone far too soon. The Art of Makeup is his first book, and it's simply beautiful. There are not a lot of "how-to's" in this book - but it is an amazing example of how incredible this man's work was. This book is …Read more

I finally got this from the library. It is fun to read and beautiful to look at. I have loved Kevyn Aucoin's work since I first saw it in the late '80s--his "look" was so lovely and different from what was trendy then. In looking at this book, I realized I have really picked up a lot of his philosophy over the years--his love of neutral eye shadows and pinky brown lip colors …Read more

A gorgeous, HUGE book. If you but the paperback, be careful or the cover will pull off, as the pages are so heavy. This is truly great for anyone trying to achieve a masterful, artist's look.

Oh my God- such a great makeup book! All 3 of his books were perfect for learning technique as well as being "coffee table books" for beauty. Please, read all three and get what u can from them. Aucoin had a unique, yet universal vision, and all 3 books show that! You will learn how to apply makeup, and also how to express yourself!

This is the ultimate makeup book for makeup enthusiasts. It's so complete and very helpful. I wish I had this book before I started to fiddle around with makeup because it would have saved me a lot of time. I still have a lot to learn but now I have a more complete understanding about the application of makeup and what works for different skin tones and age ranges. *Platinum Star*
