Overview

Oprah's longtime makeup artist shares the beauty secrets of some of America's most beautiful and popular African American celebrities in this lavish and practical guide, now available for the first time in paperback. Face Painting is not a just-the-facts presentation of flattering color schemes, eyebrow plucking, lip defining, and cheek accentuating- although it does have all of that. As Reggie Wells tells us of the colors, techniques, and secrets that work best on beauty icons such as Leontyne Price, Robin Givens, Diahann Carrol, Oprah Winfrey, Iman, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, and many others, he also gives us a rare glimpse at each of these women before her public face is in place. He shows us the human side of celebrity that helps remind us that we are all beautiful women and that with a little help from a beauty expert we can all look like the divas do.
