Lastest Trend: Everyday Make-Up Tips on Youtube

The hottest trend to hit the online site is “Do-It-Yourself” Make-up Tutorials. These tutorials, often filmed in bedrooms/bathrooms/closets, feature women (and sometime men) demonstrating everyday make-up tips in front of a camera mounted on their computers.

While you should still have a copy of Kevin Aucion’s “Making Faces”, these videos are a great resource because many of the “experts” use products that you can get at your local drugstore and offer tips to specific groups of women (i.e Asian, African-American, etc) that you may not be able to find in the latest issue of Allure.

    Greetings all,

    While I am ashamed to admit that I do not own a copy of Making Faces, I do recommend Face Forward by Kevyn Acoin and Fine Beauty by Sam Fine.
