If you were only able to purchase one book on makeup artistry this would be the one is pick. The luscious photos and celebrity makeovers are simply mind boggling when you consider Mr. Aucion passed away before the advent of HD formulas and many of the modern "miracle" helpers we have at our disposal. I continually pick up this book and pour over the pages for inspiration. Well worth every penny!!!10 found this helpful.Nadia N. Apr 02, 2014
Essential book for make up artists
To me this is the beauty bible for creating looks! I learned about contouring and highlighting from this book. I love the transformations and I learned how to recreate them step by step. My favorites were besides the Marilyn Monroe one is the 1960s look Jean Harlow look with Courtney love.8 found this helpful.Vt S. Aug 14, 2015
The Michaelangelo of Makeup
I had this book before. For professionals or those just who want to learn great techniques, it's a beautiful, coffee table style book where learns valuable, magical techniques from the best. His work was about finding individual beauty, not passing trends. I learned more from Mr. Aucoin by his books and Allure column than from my formal courses, alone, and elsewhere. I can't recommend it enough; it should be a required textbook for makeup artistry classes.7 found this helpful.Julie G. Aug 07, 2014
My mom saved this book from being thrown into the garbage in the building. It's a very useful book that touches several subjects suck as contouring, shaping the lips and brows, how to tape the face for drag, and it showcases many staples of celebrity makeup styles. I'd definitely recommend this if you're looking to become a professional, or even if you're an amateur like me who wants to learns tips and tricks to make your daily makeup routine amazing.6 found this helpful.Joanne L.

Just bought this book at thrift store cuz I heard so much about this makeup artist. Definitely knows his stuff. This book is very informative and it inspires you. I learned a few new techniques. I'd like to purchase his cosmetics but don't know where they're sold. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoy informative cosmetic application.2 found this helpful.
