Product description

Review

'With millions of fans, countless celebrity clients and editorials almost every month, lord knows how Eldridge fit it in, but in this book, she explores the beginnings of makeup and its initial uses, evaluates the impact makeup has on the lives of women past and present. This glamorous and beautiful book should sit proudly on any makeup lover's coffee table' --Country and Town House

From the Inside Flap

In Face Paint, Lisa Eldridge reveals the entire history of the art form, from Egyptian and Classical times up through the Victorian age and golden era of Hollywood, and also surveys the cutting-edge makeup science of today and tomorrow. Face Paint explores the practical and idiosyncratic reasons behind makeup's use, the actual materials employed over generations, and the glamorous icons that people emulate and how they achieved their effects. An engaging history of style, it is also a social history of women and the ways in which we can understand their lives through the prism and impact of makeup.
