Product Description

Review

Beyond its helpful beauty how-to s, this coffee table-worthy book packs a lot of style. --http://blog.modcloth.com/

The Style Me Vintage series, from Anova Books, is a fantastic series of books for hair, makeup, clothes, tea parties and even weddings! So let's start from your head and go down to your toes…for me, these Style Me Vintage books are undeniably beautiful and accurate. Spot on for a beginner like me. --http://www.foyles.co.uk/

Format: Hardcover
Having had a flick through it's sister book - Style Me Vintage Hair - I was greatly anticipating this little beauty. I had also wistfully peered into the salon owned by the author, Katie Reynolds, and thought how beautiful it looked. I am a vintage fanatic, and a bit of a wanna-be make up artist, so you would imagine this book would be perfect for some one like me!
However, I couldn't help but feel slightly let down. The vintage inspirations were, for want of a better word, a little obvious - think Marilyn Monroe, Twiggy and Audrey Hepburn. I would have loved to have seen some Anna Karina, Brigitte Bardot or Marianne Faithful in there! The looks created were undeniably beautiful, and accurate, but the accompanying instructions were very vague and overly simplistic, for example 'line your eyes with eyeliner' - the reader is left asking how, in what shape, how heavily? There is not a lot of text in the book overall, I managed to read through it in under half an hour.
However, it's not all bad. The book LOOKS gorgeous - the cover is a matte, textured material, the pages are filled with glossy, high res pictures of makeup icons past and present, and there is quirky use of vintage fabrics throughout. Plus, the looks featured are very wearable (with the exception of Siouxie Soux) and feature suggestions on how to bring it more up-to-date, which was a nice touch.
I would suggest this book is appropriate for a youngish teen, or someone who is just beginning to take an interest in a vintage look. Whether you are cack-handed with a makeup brush or an experienced war-painter, you are likely to be frustrated by the lack of precise instructions. This book is better thought of as an inspirational coffee table book, than a beauty manual.
On a side note, which is not the fault of the author at all, if you order this book, be prepared to wait - it took 17 days for mine to arrive!

As a newbie to the area I found this to be the ideal start4er book...it gives you a basic and general overview of the topic and a look from each era...
Probably not for the more advanced!

Basically a "how-to" to approximate vintage makeup styles: works best if you have heavy lids, though - all models shown had these types of eyes. However, one can pick up some useful makeup tips to assist you in creating your own personal style.

I like this book. Clear step by step instructions on how to create vintage looks. My only criticism is the book is very short and only has one look per era. Still, a good book.

This book is ok but to be honest this wasn't the one I wanted I had thought it was the style me vintage hair and it wasn't until I had placed the order that I realised my mistake but dispite asking for it not to be sent within two minutes of ordering it they couldn't stop it. I could have sent it back to but to be honest it would have been more hassle than it was worth

My neice said she's been trying out all the different look and judging by the lack of eyebrows, she's clearly going for the 50's look in a big way!

I enjoyed flicking through this book - it's nicely laid out and has some pretty pictures. However it only really gives one "look" per decade and that is quite a stero-typical look for the era - I'm sure not everyone walked around in the 60's looking like the girl on the cover for instance!! That said for the money it's a nice book to look at!
