About this deal
I've read it several times myself and my friends and family are always picking it up when they come over.
I tried to recreate one of Kevyn's looks on Lisa Marie Presley, which has always been one of my favourites. It is an ambiguous blend of different facial features from different races: the uptilted eyes of East Asians, the full lips of black women, golden tan skin of Latinx people, sharp cheekbones of Native Americans, long dark lashes of Middle Eastern women etc.The classic -- and gorgeous -- bestseller from one of the most influential makeup artist in history. It's a far cry from anything he could do before he passed away, but I felt like sharing for the sake of the review.
Se é um livro contando a história da maquiagem, conhecer os bastidores de surgimento de produtos e marcas icônicos, bem como fotografias de maquiagens vintage celebridades e suas maquiagens icônicas, esse livro é pra você. However, it's good to be reminded of the theory behind make-up application and it will certainly be of good use as a reference for make-up looks of a certain decade. Hence, he’s put together this book and packed it with more than 200 illustrations and invaluable tips for professional-grade makeup application. Still, I feel some concepts were a little dated such as using the exoticness of Asian women as a makeup look and picking a white model to illustrate this beauty.These works cover the basics of makeup application and much more, including how to apply the fundamentals to create a range of flattering looks. Kevyn Aucoin's faces appeared in editorial features, fashion shows, music videos, and advertising campaigns as well as on the covers of virtually every major magazine. I think that the climate of today's cancel culture would definitely not let him get away with saying that so this book definitely shows it is from another era. On the other hand, it is good to know that people can explore their creativity with makeup and bridge the gap of being someone other than themselves.
