KEVYN AUCOIN The Making Faces Beauty Book
Was the first product I ever purchased from this brand and I’m so happy I did. This was a lot of product for a very reasonable price. I love how it’s split into 3 chapters, each in its own magnetic book, and how detailed instruction are on the palettes themselves. This comes with everything you need for a full face and it is quality! I only gave 4 stars because it has limited range of colors for the eyes, 4 neutrals with shimmers in same shade. I highly recommend this!
