    One Reply to “Face Paint: The Story of Makeup”

    1. Lisa Eldridge is a famous makeup artist, so this is probably one of the more anticipated women’s interest history books of the year. The book is very beautiful, mixing historic images of painted people with photography of modern models, and all of that is mixed with images of historic cosmetics pots, lipstick tubes, and compacts. Art museums should really do displays of cosmetics designs, cosmetics packaging is always lovely. You can in good conscience get this book just to look at it!But the [...]

    2. I am one of those horrible people who considers history to be dull. Rarely if ever does it interest me. This was an exception. It's all history and not dull in the slightest. If you're like me and find makeup fascinating, you'll love this. If you love history in general, you'll probably (I say probably because I don't understand what it's like to love history) enjoy this too. So far, this is definitely my favourite book of the year.Side note: I adore Lisa Eldridge. She's the definition of grace [...]

    3. Visually stunning with sharp, colorful images alongside famous artwork and masterful paintings, Face Paint by Lisa Eldridge is as much a fascinating picture book as it is an encyclopedia of makeup. Eldridge applies her extensive knowledge throughout with easy to read, interesting, and accessible facts and her expertise on both the how and the why. It was the history of makeup that intrigued me the most, its evolution from lead-based Elizabethan white paste, to the popular organic and mineral mak [...]

    4. What a pleasant read - easily understandable, full of well-researched information with bias consciously kept to a minimum, a pleasant and non-patronising tone and an overwhelming amount of good, old-fashioned passion for something the author both loves and lives. (plus the academic snob in me was more than pleased to find a properly referenced bibliography section.)

    5. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE This book. Did I say I loved this book? You may know of Lisa Eldridge for being a famous makeup artist to the stars or from her highly popular Youtube channel. Lisa is a very relatable makeup artist that shares her secrets on youtube without being stuffy. In the past makeup artists and Hollywood never revealed their secrets which were always held close to the vest. Lisa ropes that curtain down and shows us how it is done. Thank you Lisa for sharing your talents and insig [...]

    6. It was so hard to get a hold of this book, I tried to order it five times but it kept selling out.While for sure its immense popularity is due to Lisa's Youtube, there is no doubt Lisa is talented and amazing.The book story way set up well, I enjoyed the concept, the visuals were amazing.What I loved most were the photos of vintage makeup cases and such, I love the historical part of make up.With that, there is one thing I was incredibly annoyed about and I can't give a five star rating - THE LA [...]

    7. Lisa Eldridge’s first book, ‘Face Paint: The Story of Makeup’ is a reminder of human social obligations; of wanting to belong and feel acceptedThis review was first published for The Hans IndiaThe liberatory power of makeup"Makeup, as we know it, has only been commercially available in the last 100 years, but applying decoration to the face and body may be one of the oldest global social practices.”London-based makeup artiste, Lisa Eldridge has added another shade to her palette of achie [...]

    8. Co większość kobiet na całym świecie lubi najbardziej prócz ubrań?Oczywiście kosmetyki.Osobiście nie znam ani jednej kobiety, która nie korzystałaby chociaż z jednego rodzaju tych produktów – czy to z tuszu do rzęs, podkładu albo chociażby błyszczyku do ust.Chociaż korzystamy z nich na co dzień raczej nie zastanawiamy się nad ich historią powstania, ani nad historią firm kosmetycznych, które je produkują, a szkoda, bo czasami warto zagłębić się w temat.Udowadnia to [...]

    9. Not a fan of the author but this is beautifully written and illustrated. Serious analysis of the evolution of make-up, with a solid research background. A pleasure to read

    10. I just finished this book. It is a visual feast. Written for makeup lovers, it is a book with so much make up story crammed into its pages, it is sure to delight those who want to learn a little bit more about this fascinating art and industry. It is pleasing that the focus remained on story telling, independent of any kind of brand focus, or subtle advertising. Lisa Eldridge has enough clout in the the makeup world that if she recommends one product, it will fly off the shelves. She has made no [...]

    11. 4.5 stars.This was a very thorough look through the cosmetics empire, throughout several empires and ages! I feel that there was only one element missing in this story: cosmetics testing. It's an ugly business, and I feel that there should've been a mention on the cruelty free/animal testing furor that dominates that industry. Apart from what I felt it lacked, this had a great level of technical and scientific detail all whilst written in a very enjoyable way. This never felt like a textbook at [...]

    12. "Face Paint" is an overview of the use of makeup throughout history. The author mainly focused on the last 120 years, but she included a brief survey of the use of makeup throughout history in Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East.The first section focused on makeup in ancient to recent history and included what types of ingredients were used as pigments, what tools were used to apply makeup, and trends in what part of the face was painted. But she didn't include details like actual historic [...]

    13. للوهلة الأولى وبمعرفة أن ليزا الديريدج أحد أهم فنانات الماكياج في العالم كنت أخشى أن يكون الكتاب يعبق بالنفس التسويقي والدعائي، لكن الكتاب كان دراسة واسعة عن جماليات فن الماكياج واستقراؤه تاريخياً ومعرفياً وبحث في أبعاده الانثروبولوجية في عمومها ولو بشكل طفيف. ينطلق الكتب [...]

    14. Quotes:"If you explore the use of makeup through ancient times, it soon becomes clear that the freedom and rights accorded to women during a given period are very closely linked to the freedom with which they painted their faces." -p. 20(I can't remember when I first got this book from the library, but it was sometime late 2015, so I'm guessing at December.)

    15. I love Lisa Eldridge and I loved this book. It was full of incredibly interesting information and gorgeous images. I'm glad I own a copy of this to look back on in the future.

    16. I love Lisa Eldridge and this book very much read like her natural speaking voice. It was a very well constructed and interesting book. It is interesting to see how much makeup was a product of it's times or how it helped to change those times. The only grip I had was with some of the formatting. It was a minor annoyance when the paragraph continues 4 pages on. This didn't greatly impact my enjoyment.Solid 4.75/5.

    17. Overall, a good, brief history of make up with some cultural history thrown in. If you want to really sink your teeth into the history of cosmetics then this is not the book, but if you want an overview that is intriguing with some light feminism, not to mention gorgeous design and photography, it's just right.

    18. I did not know what to expect from this book, which was given to me as a present. I have always been interested in make-up. But I wasn't sure I was so interested to read a whole book about it. Apparently I was. And I don't think the book is only interesting to make-up lovers. The facts and history in the book is very interesting and not very common knowledge. I would definitely recommend it.

    19. A fascinating look at the origins of makeup and how it became what it is today.This is not a how to book, it's an amazing history book. How makeup changed with the times, and the "muses" that sparked new ideas and looks through the years. Lisa Eldridge is amazing. I love her YouTube tutorials and her voice rings true in this book.

    20. This book is a great starting point for the interested in the history of makeup. Though the first section is oddly organized, the rest is very interesting and informative.

    21. I highly recommend this book if you want to know more about makeup and its history. It's full of information and great photos. Lisa Eldridge is a true professional and she never fails to deliver.

    22. A quick read and overall very interesting, but it felt like it skimmed the surface and only occasionally went in depth for certain topics. I especially liked the photos included and the history of cosmetic marketing, which takes up a large part of the second half. Also, I read this as an ebook and the sidebars came up in weird places, like interrupting the middle of a paragraph.

    23. Lisa Eldridge does a nice job of trying to be inclusive to many cultures throughout history and their relation and contribution to makeup. It starts with history lessons in regards to the significance of colors-red, black and white- and early ingredients of makeup. This book felt a bit like a thesis research paper at a university level, in a good way. Lots of information easy to understand, pictures, color and format all aesthetically pleasing. This would make a great coffee table book to flip t [...]

    24. I read Face Paint because, as I age, I feel the need to do something with myself when I look in the mirror – an urge I initially resisted for many reasons. (‘Why should I?’; lack of funds; pretending I have minimal vanity.) But, for the first time in my 28 years of life, my makeup is now a brief, calming ritual in the morning. I love the feeling of ‘putting my face on’. Is it because it makes me feel part of the tribe somehow? I don’t know. But Eldridge’s YouTube channel played a m [...]

    25. A very interesting look at the history of makeup. Though I felt it could have been longer, I really learned a lot from this book. I think my favorite bits were on the ancient colour palette. The main colours used throughout history were red, white, and black, each of which had an entire chapter dedicated to the colour. I felt that there were more colours being used historically, but it was probably so seldom that there would not have been enough information to have written a whole chapter about [...]

    26. Famous makeup artist Lisa Eldridge brings us a history of makeup. She goes into both the chemistry (what the makeup was made of) and the sociology (how social mores influenced its use) of it to create a rounded view of makeup. It’s been around for thousands of years- the ancient Egyptians made great use of it- and, while for centuries in the western world it wasn’t considered a good thing to do, it was there, being made at home of rose petals and blackberries, flying under the radar. The fir [...]
