Linda shares her tricks of the trade that she's cultivated in her more than three decades as a makeup artist and reveals how to create the most attractive version of ourselves. The pages are packed with gorgeous photographs featuring beautiful women from all walks of life, including such supermodels and celebrities as Brooke Shields, Carol Alt, Joan Jett, Kim Alexis, Paulina Porizkova, and Veronica Webb, all of whom have benefited from Linda's masterful eye and creative use of color.

"My biggest dilemma in doing this book was how to categorize the makeup to make it simple for you the reader to follow. I tried several things, including splitting them up by age, but that didn’t work because many of these makeup looks can work well on women of all ages, and I don’t want readers to feel limited by the age ranges. Every age has its challenges, but challenges with the right attitude are that much more fun! I finally settled on overall makeup themes for the makeup applications themselves, starting with Subtle Color, for everyday wear; Glamorous Color, for more dramatic effect; and Creative Color, for those times when you’re feeling adventurous and open to experimenting! Each of these women has a journey and a story to tell about how makeup works for her and expresses who she is. I hope you will be inspired not just by their looks but by their creative, even adventurous spirits." -Linda Mason
