From the Publisher"Twenty-three women, including Hudson valley Resident Dana Kinstler, reflect on their reflections, exploring issues of beauty, ethnicity, aging, scars, makeup and more. Author photos, rounds as compact mirrors accompany each essay. Strikingly few of the writers describe themselves as the camera sees them—perhaps that’s the point. A provocative read."

"Comedic, heartwarming and inspiring stories about what a girl takes from the mirror and adds to her sense of self. Ranging from ages 22 to 75, women from various ethnicities and walks of life evaluate the impact societal beauty myths, media and role models have on a woman’s sense of self, identity and even career choice. With an introduction from renowned make-up artist Bobbi Brown, we learn makeup is only your enemy if it becomes a weapon you use on yourself to hide from the world. About Face dares you to do what 25 other women have already done: Turn your face to the mirror and learn, know and love what you see, imperfections and all."
