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!

I have had the book Iman The Beauty of Color: The Ultimate Beauty Guide For Skin of Color by Iman in my wishlist for quite some time before purchasing it. One of the reasons has to do with my own interest to get some makeup ideas. My decision was also influenced after I watched the music video for Remember The Time by Michael Jackson because of the air of self-confidence she radiated in the music video (the same self- confidence vibe that is projected through many of her online/media interviews). This caught my attention because she probably has challenging days just like anybody else. However, the self-confidence she frequently projects through her own interviews reminds me of one of the personal goals I have to aim for higher self-confidence regardless of any life tests I may encounter. Yes, just a few years ago, I tilted towards the happiness aspiration spectrum However, I have ironically been feeling better (even in the midst of unexpected events in my life) since I have instead refocused my aim towards higher self-confidence. Anyhow, this makeup book features women from various skin complexion spectrums (models by the names of Oluchi,Ming, Brenda, and Mariana) and various celebrities (Padma Lakshmi, Kimora Lee Simmons,Liya Kebede, Alicia Keys and many more famous people featured). She also shows different techniques on how to apply eye shadow such as on page 95, plus much more.
