About this title


Cindy Crawford demonstrates how to put on a "basic" face simply and effectively. Drawing on the invaluable advice of world-renowned makeup artist Sonia Kashuk, Cindy offers how-to tips on skin preparation and the tools you need to get started. Then, in separate sections, she discusses using concealer and powder to create the perfect foundation and teaches ways to enhance eyes, cheeks, and lips to bring out the natural beauty in all women.

Cindy knows that in the '90s, women are too busy to spend a lot of time and fuss putting on makeup. She doesn't suggest imitating the glamorous, made-up looks of models who adorn magazine covers, but gives practical advice for every woman who wants the face she sees in the mirror in the morning to look its best.

Beauty Bytes: Beauty By The Book

1.         Less is always more.   Less makeup is more attractive.   When applying any makeup, always begin with the least amount possible and add more only if you need to.

2.         There are no rules.   Forget preconceived notions about makeup. There is no magic formula, no cookie-cutter advice to follow.  Just like every face is individual, so is every approach.  You don't have to stick to a routine.  You don't have to wear foundation (or lipstick or mascara or anything else).   You don't even have to wear makeup at all.

3.         Makeup is not cosmetic surgery.  Don't try to seriously reshape your face with makeup.  It almost always looks obvious.  Even professional makeup artists hardly bother with contouring anymore.

4.         Blend.  Blend.  Blend.  Consider this a makeup mantra.  Blending is the secret to successful application, whether foundation and concealer or blush and eyeshadow.  Seek and destroy all telltale edges.

5.         Makeup washes off with soap and water.  Unlike hair color, makeup is not permanent.  Don't be afraid to try something new--you might like it.  Never try something different if you only have five minutes before heading out the door.  Give yourself time to screw up and wash it off.

6.         You know your face best.  Any makeup artist will tell you this.  You know what looks good and what doesn't--and more importantly, you know what feels good.  Don't wear any makeup that doesn't feel comfortable.  Remember the point is to look like you.

7.         Guard against time warp.  The passage of time necessitates change. On the fashion front, it may be rethinking blue eyeshadow or black nailpolish. Or it may be something as simple as switching from an oil-free foundation to one with oil because you skin is now drier.  Always re-evaluate what you're wearing and how you're wearing it.

A sense of the eclecticism I strive for can be seen in some of material I've recently handled. From an illuminated 15th-century manuscript Book of Hours to a collection of photographs and collages by Beat great William S. Burroughs, from a Yosemite tourist album containing some of the earliest images of a Sierra Club expedition to an important archive of letters from writer Henry Miller to his agent, I seek material that will fascinate and endure.
