Editorial Reviews

Tulsa World - Jason Ashley Wright
Would make great [a] stocking stuffer for the fashionista on your list.... Leigh Toselli offers us common nonlicensed folks secrets of the professionals, among many other things.
North Shore News - Terry Peters
Sharing the secrets of her career as a makeup artist, author Kit Spencer provides easy to follow advice on how to create a look that is right for you.... Colour photographs that show before and after views make it easy to follow along with her instructions. With its spiral ring design the book will lay open at any page you choose, making it that much easier to refer to her techniques as they are shown. Spencer even includes special sections on applying makeup to someone else, skin care for men and costume makeup.
VOYA - Victoria Vogel
Excellent organization, beautiful photos, clear instructions, and concise presentation all are qualities that make this series a wonderful addition to any library. PRO Makeup provides an organized, attractive overview of makeup application techniques from everyday to costume. The text is enhanced throughout by useful highlights offering tips from professionals on everything from achieving the perfect eyebrow arch to taking the attention away from a wide nose. Bridal and costume party makeup are covered as well. The chapter on costume party makeup even provides instructions on creating faces from different periods. It is more than a how-to manual for applying makeup. There is a section on developing looks, dealing with skin conditions, choosing equipment, and even applying makeup to men and children. The comprehensiveness and presentation of the books in this series set them apart from other attractive books on cosmetic techniques. The information is presented in a way that allows even the novice to recreate the looks. Both books contain a list of suppliers at the end; however, only Web sites are listed. Each title also offers a short section offering advice from a professional on developing a career in the field. The books have a covered spiral binding, so they will stay open easily if someone needs to refer to them while trying out some of the techniques. Both would be valuable additions to any library's career section. This series is recommended for public library collections, and would be appropriate for adults as well as teens interested in the beauty business. Reviewer: Victoria Vogel
