Barnes, Scott. About Face: Amazing Transformations Using the Secrets of the Top Celebrity Makeup Artist. Fair Winds: Quayside. 2010. c.240p. photogs. ISBN 978-1-59233-399-8. $24.99. PERSONAL GROOMING
Barnes gave actress-singer-megabrand Jennifer Lopez her trademark “glow,” and his celebrity makeup star ascended to join the likes of Pat McGrath and the late Kevyn Aucoin. In his mini-coffee-table-book debut, he shares his philosophy—it all begins with the light, where and how it hits the face, because glow is the goal with all women, starlets or not. A lot of heavy contouring and highlighting ensues in an array of “transformations” of nonmodels of various ages and ethnicities. These before-and-afters, captured in step-by-step color photos, are impressive in their technical skill and will inspire the more audacious and skilled among Barnes’s fans—Sarah goes from a pretty, minimally maquillaged twenty-something to a golden-cheeked Renaissance maiden.

Verdict While Barnes presents some sensible skin care how-to and tricks, his book is best suited to intermediate to advanced makeup artists who have a stake in contouring and highlighting. —Library Journal, March, 15, 2010

I only got it because I love JLO, there was nothing really about her in it, the make up is outdated or feels so, would have been nice if it had beautiful everyday make up etc, seems more costume like.
