David Horne’s book, The Art of Male Makeup, is really quite something. I was (wrongly) expecting from the title a book for boys about how to apply guy-liner and so forth, but not at all! David’s search for references on male skin-tone led to nothing, so he’s put together what will be, I am sure, the last word on man-tone! When you look at the mesmerising photographs, it’s oh so obvious suddenly how men’s skin tone and women’s differ and it’s not an issue I’d thought about before.
The Art of Male Makeup is aimed primarily at the make-up artistry community, but I’d say it’s for anyone who really loves the minute detail of skin and the mastery of makeup. David is Head of New Product Development for Illamasqua and also an accomplished makeup artist and educator.
The Art of Male Makeup is £25 and if you want to get a copy, email firstname.lastname@example.org. I kind of feel an early edition of this might be a wise investment.
