About the Author:

Iman, the daughter of an African diplomat, was born in Somalia. She was raised speaking five languages, and was studying political science at the University of Nairobi when she was discovered by photographer Peter Beard, who arranged for her to seek a modeling career in the United States. She quickly became the most successful black model and an international star on runways and in magazines. Iman remained at the top of her field for fourteen years, appearing in countless publications and advertising campaigns. In 1994 she started Iman Cosmetics for skin of color and in 2000 launched a second line, I-Iman Makeup. She is the author of I Am Iman, an autobiographical sketchbook of her working life. The mother of two daughters, she is married to musician/actor David Bowie.

From Publishers Weekly:

Discovered when she was a university student in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1975 by photographer Peter Beard, Iman went on to become an international supermodel. To address the needs of women of color, she launched a line of cosmetics, Iman, in 1994, and with this beautifully illustrated coffee-table book geared to black, Hispanic, Middle Eastern and Asian women, and timed to coincide with the debut of her second cosmetic line, she's poised to become the voice of beauty for this underrepresented group of women. In a conversational tone, Iman shares solutions to basic makeup and skin care quandaries (how to use blush, test foundation and choose tools) and debunks myths (dark skinned women don't need sunblock, ethnicity determines skin color). Other sections show how to "get the look" from "Ghetto Fab" to "So Fresh So Clean." Gorgeous photographs of well-known faces (Salma Hayek, Tyra Banks, Ling) with personal tidbits of advice and real women makeovers, from teens to women over 50, round out the offerings. Fun and flirty, with a confidential, insider feel, this combination of celebrity and self-improvement, capped with artistic portraits of women famous and not, indicate another success for Iman.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. As one of the first women of colour to become a supermodel, Iman found that most makeup artists had little idea how to handle her unique skin tones. Neither did the available beauty products take into account the wide range of skin tones that defy categorization whether African, Latina, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern or ethnic mixes. In both her products and this book, Iman embraces skin of all tones, and teaches her readers how to work with colors and skin care regimens targeted to their exact skin tone and type. The book itself is a work of a beauty, with stunning colour photographs and images on every page, comprising five main sections: Skin Care: everything you need to know about cleansing and caring for skin of colour; Makeup: from foundation to eyes, lips and cheeks, for every tone from light to very dark; Remix: nine special looks you can create from Ghetto Fab to Screen Queen to Masai Gamine ; Celebrity Sightings: 17 photo profiles including Tyra Banks, Venus Williams, Padma Lakshmi, and Eva Mendes; and Most Wanted: ten makeovers, two each for women in their teens, 20 s, 30 s, 40 s and 50 s.
