5.0 out of 5 stars Makeup artist must buy 2 Dec 2010

I bought this book on a whim when it popped up in my recommendations and I'm so glad I did. As well as being a lovely coffee table book containing some fantasic images it contains plenty of information on how to recreate these looks, a great source of ideas for anyone wanting more edgy and creative makeup

5.0 out of 5 stars An AMAZING must-have!! 21 Feb 2011
By Daisy
Format:Hardcover
I'm a make-up artist and love to be creative and to think out of the box concerning make-up. So, when I first saw the cover of this book on amazon I thought "yes, finally, a creative make-up book!". I was in doubt the whole book would be just as interesting as the cover, but I ordered it for my collection of make-up books.

This book is simply AMAZING! This book is full of gorgeous make-up. The images show a very high skill level and are inspiring and original. The book is very complete and far more accurate than most of the other make-upbooks available. It includes topics such as editorial make-up, underwater make-up, using glitter and period make-up, all breathtaking beautifully illustrated.

I recommend this book to all make-up artists, aspiring or experienced. I also recommend it as a stunning coffeetable book to anyone with a passion for make-up.

I absolutely adore "MakeUp is Art"! It's THE best book in my 50+ make-up book collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired 5 Jun 2011
By lisa
Format:Hardcover
This book was exactly what i was looking for - something that goes beyond all the other books and offers some more creative advice. It has all the basics first, but then goes further. It has inspiring pictures and i highly recommend. More for the makeup artist than the girl at home wanting to learn more about day makeup. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful book 29 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover
absolutely fantastic book, full of beautiful images, really helped to inspire me with my make up artistry. theres alot of basics in there, but a great section on body painting tips and advice on getting into more sought after positions. id say good for anyone interested in make up but more useful for someone in the business :)

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!! 25 Aug 2011
By Debz
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for make up inspiration - it was far more than that. It is an invaluable book filled with advice, tips, looks, excellent photography, professional techniques, tools, a Q&A section, and information about making it as a make up artist.

I LOVE IT!

Some of the looks are natural, vintage, modern, and really out there. There is even a male make up section (small but it's there), and skincare, face shapes, skin tone, and make up types and how to apply them. It is truly a MUST HAVE book.

Even just to see what can be done with make up and body paint. I look it, it is inspiring, and really does suit it's title - Make Up is Art! If I ever could become a make up artist, I've no idea how I would top these looks, but the book has inspired me (in the mean time) to be more experimental with make up. After all, it is a fun thing to use!

I adore it, well worth the price! (Which was not that much at all)
