Stephanie L. Apr 26, Makeup Bible 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!!! Helpful Nadia N. Apr 02, 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 s look Jean Harlow look with Courtney love.

Helpful Vt S. Aug 14, The Michaelangelo of Makeup I had this book before. 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. Helpful Julie G.

The Beautiful Life Of Kevyn Aucoin

We all trekked to the Borders at Winrock mall in Albuquerque to buy a copy, using the savings we had built up by babysitting or halfheartedly frothing lattes for minimum wage. We lugged the book home all oversize pages of it to commune in private with its thick, creamy paperstock full of wisdom about lip shapes, brow bleaching and false eyelashes. We propped it against the bathroom sink as we mashed our fingers into our cheekbones, feeling for deep bone structure. We pored over close-ups of celebrity pores, eager to claim affinity with the actress or supermodel whose skin most matched our own.
