"This is the bible of stage make-up. It has wonderful
step-by-step pictures so you see the process. I loved
the fact that there was no flowery language to complicate
learning. It caters to the beginner and the professional.
If you are serious about learning the trade, this is
the investment to make. This was a recommended book
for me in college and it helped give me an edge over
my classmates. If you don't know where to start,
or would like to brush up on your technique, this
is a great resource."
