Amazon Reviews

Didn't think this book existed.
Glad I found it. Just what I needed . Thanks so much.
very helpful book

I needed information on stage make-up to assist me in my seasonal role as one of Father Christmas's official helpers. This book helped no end.

A great book for any actor's shelf

This was a book that I had checked out at the library for a long time, and I finally decided that I wanted to get a copy of my own. This was exactly what I was looking for.

Bought this for our granddaughter. Loves to do makeup but is adamant that stage and theatre makeup is what she wants to do.
This explains basics by step by step instructions with pictures.

Swinfield's step by step guide is informative and easy to read.
