A wonderful book detailing the effects of makeup on the face, and how to apply it to reach different ends. My favorite section is the series of celebrity look-alike photos. Martha Stewart transformed into a blonde bombshell, Gwenyth Paltrow made over as James Dean, and many more. You've got to see it for yourself, and you still might not believe it!

Fun book of famous faces done by a true, and sadly missed, artist. Includes an unrecognizable Gwyneth Paltrow and stunningly unrecognizable Martha Stewart. Also, some fun photos of Tori Amos, among others

This book is amazing. Some of the transformations are stunning.

An amazing artist and an amazing book. It's at its best when you use it for inspiration, rather than as a text book. But it is full of useful tips. Highly recommended

I didn't enjoy quite as much as Making Faces, but it is still worth having for any makeup artist or fan of fashion.
