I suggest you to get Kevyn Aucoin books, not because I adore him, but because he explains you step by step what to do, he shows you amazing before and afters, techniques...they are worth every penny.



That is Lisa Marie Presley as Marylin Monroe

His Books:

*The Art of Makeup
*Making Faces
*Face Forward
*Kevyn Aucoin, A beautiful life

If you're a beginner, Bobbi Brown's Beauty is a good starting point.

I'm just waiting for Shu Uemura to one day write a book

That one os from Making faces, If you want to, I can do some research about each book, and you can choose afterwards, even though I think The Art of Makeup is the best you can buy if you want to start a collection, because it breaks down everything, from eyebrows, to lashes, to makeup composition and contouring....

I agree with Alejandro- Kevyn's books are wonderful! Making Faces and Face Forward are my favorites. I don't have A Beautiful Life, yet.

You can go to Borders and check them out, believe me, they are addicting.. When I started buying them, I got the hard cover from Face Forward for 4.99 on sale, after he died, the regular price can reach over 40 dollars...

Yes! is like you never get tired of them!! I also find myself reading and reading them over again, because they are not just a makeup book, he preached love, understanding, and the will to follow the road that leads you to a better understanding of yourself. Beautiful looks and words I can say

Well, I prefer Nars... It's very, very clear, plus it also has the explanations of how to get the looks.
I also like Making Faces. Th eother three have looks with explanations, but from Kev's book, in my opinion that's the best.
