Scott Barnes - About Face
Wayne (gossmakeupartist on You Tube) first introduced me to Scott Barnes when he wrote on his blog that Mr. Barnes was coming out with a makeup book called "About Face". When I heard that Scott Barnes is also Jennifer Lopez's makeup artist I knew I had to get my hands on that book.
This is the man responsible for creating J-Lo's glowy look!
I ordered the book from Amazon for $ 20,18 (I would gladly have paid twice that amount) and I finally got it, last week!!
(You can get it for $ 14. 61 now, which I can't even understand.... what!?)
What can I say, the book is pure eye-candy!! It's filled with the most amazing transformations of regular women, and it's so funny because they all get J-Lo'fied in their transformations (he can J-Lo'fy me any day!!).
This book will tell you, and show you exactly how to achieve that famous glow! I didn't even make it half way through the book before I had to run to the bathroom, remove all my makeup, and try the Scott Barnes method. Haha! I've read and looked through "About Face" every day since I got it and it's so inspirational!
This is not a how-to book for girls/women wanting to know how to apply makeup, in my opinion. It's not that basic. But if you know your way around with a brush and want to get some new ideas and inspiration - this is the book for you!
Seriously, GET IT!!!! I'll even make it easy for you and post a direct link to Amazon: ---> click!
(and no, I'm not paid to say this!)
Do you have any makeup books? Which ones are your favorites?
