Book Review: Face Forward (Kevyn Aucoin)

Check out my latest book review of the late Kevyn Aucoin’s book, Face Forward! If you only own one book about makeup, this is the one. Whether you’re a beginner or a makeup junkie (like me), Aucoin provides step by step instructions with hundreds of tips. Beautiful photography. This book makes a great present for someone you love too.
