Plastic Surgery Without the Surgery
The Miracle of Makeup Techniques
By Eve Pearl

       Ask anyone what they don’t like about themselves and you will probably hear one or more body features they would love to change or improve. Millions have selected to opt for plastic surgery as the cureall, and for some of them, the decision results in painful procedures, staggering costs, and little satisfaction.

      Eve Pearl is a three-time Emmy Award-winning makeup artist. Her fifteen years in television, theater, print, and film makes her an expert in her field. She freely shares her years of knowledge and expertise in Plastic Surgery Without the Surgery: The Miracle of Makeup Techniques. By using makeup, she is able to correct and enhance anyone’s appearance.

      Every aspect of the body is covered in this book. The sections I found most appealing included breast enlargement, covering up tattoos, and getting rid of dark circles under the eyes. The vivid photos enabled me to follow, step-by-step, all the techniques she discussed. The use of makeup is inexpensive, and can be washed away if the desired effect is not achieved and, it is a much safer means than plastic surgery.

      This book contains a wealth of knowledge that anyone who reads will immediately find something to use in their own daily routine. I found this book to be superbly written and was a very rewarding experience. Very highly recommended.
