Reviews

"I had the privilege of seeing this book prior to publication as well as in the finished form. As a Make-up Artist in the film and television industry for over 30 years, I am so pleased that this is now available as an excellent resource for any artist's education and practical work. This is a much needed work within the make-up field and will help artists raise their game. The concepts are clearly explained and illustrated with ample visual images. The application of color theory to all forms of make-up artistry is made simple, even fun, and will ignite the enthusiasm of the reader to see their craft in a whole new way... and want to start applying it immediately!"
