Physically, it is large and is filled with gorgeous photographs of different make up looks, tutorials, models, etc. It’s a great coffee table book even if you are not into make up technique. That said, I bought this book for the make up tutorials and was so happy to find that it is so much more – Aucoin gives a great introduction and the beginning of the book focuses on tools, face shapes, what looks best, etc.

It’s loaded with interesting information. Subsequent chapters break down different looks for different occasions. I am a make up and product junkie but really not the type to buy a book about it – which is so funny bc I have referenced this book a million times over the years for different ideas for fun events – New Year’s, a masquerade party or just to switch things up a little. Everytime I open the cover, I find myself lingering over the book, engrossed again in old chapters I like that this book focuses on specific looks and that each look has an associated photo.


However, the step-by-step instructions are done using drawings, and I think it would be easier to follow the directions if there was a picture with each step like in Bobbi Brown’s book. It would also be nice if there were helpful little tips and bullet points along the way, but i suppose that didn’t really become a trend until the ‘s.

It a great book, and you’ll definitely learn some things, but if it were between this book and Bobbi Brown’s book, I’d choose Bobbi Brown’s because it gives more specific details and is generally more helpful.

Best for Intermediate to advanced. The legacy of Kevyn Aucoin. Ideal to learn about an iconic person in the industry and its work.

I personally love this book also because I am starting to draw my own facecharts and this help me to see how an expert like Kevin represent a makeup look with the pencil.

Great book, definitely a book a beginner can learn from and keep as a coffee table book.

The transformation pictures were gaces, I wish the diagrams had images of real eyes and lips instead of cartoonish like images but the time this book came out it is understandable why they had those type of images. This book shouldn’t be your sole source as a beginner in make-up or you can get confused but it should be in your top 5 make-up books you should have. Overall though it is a good book and testament to Kevyn Aucoins work. Making Faces is a starting point for many that are curious about makeup, myself included.

Kevyn’s advise and guidance is used by many of today’s MUAs and Internet makeup gurus. Some probably don’t even know their source. With that said, people with a grasp of how to do makeup can take a pass.

This book covers basics very well. However, if you need inspiration for say, your s costume afces a tutorial done by picture you caces grab this book. I’m still blown away by his Marilyn Monroe look for Priscilla Presley. He had a guide on how to contour your face a whole generation before it was appreciated. Making Faces is one of those makeup tomes you need to pass on to the next budding akcoin enthusiast.

I gave my copy to my niece once Kevyn taught me the ways of contouring and perfect smoky eye shadow. Now that the 90s are back, Kevyn’s photos for his makeup looks are suddenly trendy again. The kaking Kevyn Aucoin is a pioneer in the makeup industry and still has an immense impact on the world of makeup to this day.

He is an Icon of his field. Today his work is still just as relevant as it was since the year He has worked with a plethora of supermodels and celebrities of all ethnicities and he brings his tips and tricks alive in this book. There are many different makeup looks to choose from to create a flawless look. There are some pretty iconic photos in this book along with his instructions on how to recreate the look. I found the instructions for the different looks easy to follow although I have yet to really try out some of the intense looks.


The pages in this book are beautiful and if you love makeup as much as I do this is definitely the book for you. I do not regret buying this book one bit. I honestly wish that I had a big table or shelf to display it on.

If you are a beginner to novice and on the fence about this book I would suggest you buy it, if you are a pro I would suggest you buy it as well there are so many glamorous images it has something for everyone. This book has information and pictures on how to do basic make up, as well as more elaborate looks. It covers the basic of skincare and make up and provides photos so that you can see how to apply the make up and recreate the looks.

This book will not give you a lot of advanced techniques into make up artistry such as special effects but is a must have in your beauty library. My gently used copy was scribbled on by a child using crayon on the first few pages.

How do I be mad at a little artist using Kevyn as inspiration. See all reviews.
