I never get tired of his books, and if you're really interested in makeup as a passion then you know what I mean. You don't need a manual to see the inspiration in these pages, just copy the looks with modern makeup. I'm sure most of what he used back then has since been discontinued or is sold by professional retailers/brands, but you can always try some of his line. It's still sold in high end stores like Barney's, Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, etc. I'm glad that some part of him lives on.
I've had this book for years and I use is as a reference! I need to pull it out again and gain a fresh way of applying my makeup that is more artistic when I sing, model and just day to day meeting people! It's so FUN to be creative with makeup and who better than this expert that woman all over the world LOVE!
