Scott Barnes is one of Hollywood’s top makeup artists. In fact he’s the one credited for giving Jennifer Lopez her distinctive look. So when my sister told me about his book called About Face, I quickly ran to the store and picked it up. I’m so glad I did because it’s fabulous. One of the most in depth beauty books I’ve seen in a long long time.
What they say:
About Face is a compendium of everything make-up artist Scott Barnes has learned during his career working with A-list celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jennifer Aniston. About Face is packed with techniques for every area of makeup application. Part One focuses on dramatic makeovers of real women with a twist: each woman comes in looking the best she thinks she can look. The author then deconstructs and debunks their look taking them from attractive to amazing. Step-by-step photos outline makeup techniques and products while Scott provides commentary on how he pinpointed the woman’s strongest asset and built a look around it. Part Two highlights beauty rituals, must-have makeup items, and inner and outer preparations that a woman must embrace in order to look beautiful and radiate charisma. Part Three focuses on the celebrities Scott Barnes has worked with.
This is my favorite transformation. I just love her makeup after.

This would even be a great book for older woman. Is your mother/grandmother’s birthday coming up soon?
