So, the reviews that criticize these points truly didn't get it or even try/read a single word.
Excellent book - thank you!
Beginning with the beautiful Elenora Bose on the cover (and bare faced on the back cover), François Nars photographs some of the world's most striking faces in "bare canvas" form, and then transforms them before your eyes with a minimal hand, with a wild streak, and many areas in-between.
Models include Naomi Campbell, Sophie Dahl, Karen Elson, Erin O'Connor, Caroline Ribiero, Devon Aoki, Eva Herzigova, Elsa Benitez, Maggie Rizer, Ninja Sarasalo, Amy Wesson and man, many more. Also, surprisingly, are two men (Csaba Egri and James Rousseau) demonstrating a rich smoky eye and the startling effect of a few well placed false eyelashes.
Chapters include Eyes, Lips, Neutrals, Shimmer, Monochrome and Suntan, Pastels and Color. There are also some important and informative sections on Skin Care, Pre-Prep tips and a fabulous "10 Basic DO NOT Makeup Mistakes."
Designed by the equally imitated Fabien Baron, Makeup Your Mind is disguised as a coffee table book (and is being used as one by me!), but is meant to be more of a functional workbook. The Slipcase that it comes in, while beautiful, is somewhat delicate and needs to be taken care of to last well. The spiral bound format is also a little precarious, so extra caution on that front too.
Fransçois Nars Makeup Your Mind is everything a makeup book should be: beautiful, inspiring, experimental, and informative. Very highly recommended.

The book definitely has great looks and ideas. As an African American though, only 2 faces look similar to mine. Read morePublished on Aug. 5 2003 by EJB
I thought this book is a really great way to see NARS products on actual faces. I must say after I purchased it, I really got into the NARS makeup line. Read morePublished on May 14 2003 by Rosalie
