It tells you what colors and how to apply them to the face, although he does not go into brands. Too much preaching in this but it's ok

This is a mediocre, average book in my estimation. I am surprised at the raves. There really isn't anything to rave about. If you like the author, or hold him in high esteem, it doesn't change the fact that the book itself is not worthy of the four/five stars people are giving it. The 'basics' covered (texture, etc) are basically worthless. If you have spent any time involved …Read more

My favorite of Aucoin's books! The instructions are clearly written and the photos are stunning. I also liked the little humor he blends into his descriptions - making it not just a tutorial, but a fun read! I highly recommend this book if you're interested in makeup application.

I bought Face Forward and Making Faces when I was about 13, and fell in love with make-up artistry. These books taught me the basics of makeup application, using brushes, and introduced me to the wide, wide world of different products that can transform the face. Kevyn made everything so easy to understand with detailed product information for everything that you could apply to your eyes, lips …Read more

I always dreamed of Kevyn doing my makeup :( but being able to read his books is the next best thing. He was such a gifted artist. He could transform anyone. A must have for anyone interested in makeup.

This guy is a master! Love the techniques, explanations, photos...I could go on. A little pricey, but well worth it for makeup junkies or aspiring MUArtists. I would recommend buying every one of Kevyn's books, they are amazing. Highly recommended!
