Way Bandy's book was the first beauty book I ever bought. He was the darling of the jet set and an icon of the seventies and eighties. His techniques allow for a luminosity that many are just beginning to favor. He was the makeup artist for many of the Cosmopolitan covers of that era and many other magazines. He worked with Francesco Scavullo and helped to define the "glamour pic". His techniques are simple to use and easy to follow. There are very few illustrations and it was said Bandy did this purposely so that the reader could try the different techniques themselves. I have been using his techniques exclusively for over 25 years and have always been admired for my "glowing" look. Metaldiva Sez: It is a classic that deserves a reprint. Every person that uses makeup should have this as a reference!

For a good reason-- Bandy is a true artist who clearly describes how to achieve a clean polished look that enhances your natural features. Although written over 20 years ago, Bandy's book is not the least out of date-- his advice is timeless and classic. I definately reccomend.

This is a great book. I did not like that it did not have more pictures, but the illustrations used were very explicit, and I guess that is really all you need, however a few pictures would have been nice. The reason I loved the book though far outways what I did not like. It truly starts you on your way to mixing colors, something I have found in no other makeup artisty book. I own about 35 books! I also like that it shows you how to contour and highlight by using the particular models features, not just their face shape, which can be sometimes confusing because you can actually have 2 faceshapes going on at once. It is excellent on shaping eyebrows, and explains a way like I have found in no other technique book. I'd have to say it is the best book for someone who wants to get into doing makeup professionally. The fact that the very dust cover that is on the book describes the book with over 100 color illustrations is a bit deceiving because I believe a lot of people just like me would interpret that to mean lots of color photo's, well you don't get that but it really is a gold mine of information and well worth having in your collection if you love doing make-up. With even the negative things I say about it, I love this book, and it is my very favorite of my 35 Make-up artistry books.

yes it is true there are no fancy photos or color pictures in this book but the written information and the way bandy explains the steps and how to use light and dark and color.

i was put off a bit when i first got this book because it was so different from the books we are used to with lots of photos and such. but if you read and study the book i believe you can get a lot out of this book.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Way Bandy really went out of his way to explain in technical detail about highlighting, contouring and applying makeup on your face. This book also covers mixing products to suit your own skin. Though some of the ideas are a bit outdated (such as applying talc on your face), most concepts are not. Designing Your Face still one of the most technical makeup books available that also happened to be written by (one if not) the top celebrity makeup artist of his day. If I could go back in time to choose two books when learning about makeup and even building/refreshing my skills, I would choose this book and then Styling your Face also written by Way Bandy above the other books I have. The reason why I state this is that there is so much more to the face than eye makeup and/or pictures that require You tube videos to really figure it out. If you can get foundation to match your skin, and place the color properly on bronzer, blush, highlight, eyeliner and mascara, then all that is left to figure out are just the trends..

Arrived on a timely fashion, book was in great condition. When I began taking my cosmetology courses one of my make up instructors always spoke about his inspiration; Way Bandy. I just had to find this book. Any makeup artist should own this book. Yes, Way Bandy does offer older technique but it has never gotten out of style!

This book is simply brilliant. Way was the ultimate makeup artist in my opinion and could "design" anybody's face to perfection. I like that there are none of those ridiculously airbrushed and Photoshopped images in there that purport to be the finished work of the author. Sadly, Way died of AIDS many years ago and the world lost a true and passionate artist.
