Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In the mid-1970s, Kenyan beauty Imam helped break the color barrier for black models. Two decades later, she launched her own line of cosmetics designed specifically for women of color. Now, in this beautifully designed large-format pictorial, she addresses the cosmetic needs of black, Hispanic, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Asian women. The Beauty of Color covers skin care, makeup, and makeovers and features 17 photo profiles on women of color, including Tyra Banks, Venus Williams, Padma Lakshmi, and Eva Mendes.

Meet the Author

Iman, the daughter of an African diplomat, was born in Somalia. She was raised speaking five languages, and was studying political science at the University of Nairobi when she was discovered by photographer Peter Beard, who arranged for her to seek a modeling career in the United States. She quickly became the most successful black model and an international star on runways and in magazines. Iman remained at the top of her field for fourteen years, appearing in countless publications and advertising campaigns. In 1994 she started Iman Cosmetics for skin of color and in 2000 launched a second line, I-Iman Makeup. She is the author of I Am Iman, an autobiographical sketchbook of her working life. The mother of two daughters, she is married to musician/actor David Bowie.

    essential for women of color

    I highly recommend this book for the seasoned artist or like me, the beginner. The photos are beautiful, the explanations understandable, and the tools you need, obtainable! The fact that they use real people and models in before and after photos is very encouraging. I truly enjoy seeing a face I've seen in Vogue with the same bags and circles I have!

    Not As Expected

    Tips are provided for different skin types, but overall the layout addresses glamour and not information for makeup, etc. for everday wear.
