New Francois Nars Book: "Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself"

I don't know about you, but I'm all about makeup books and education. I have books from Sam Fine, Iman, Kevyn Aucoin, Scott Barnes, Bobbi Brown, the list goes on and on. I love reading and learning tips and techniques from the masters of makeup. There is no denying that Francois Nars is most definitely one of them!

I was browsing the internet as usual and what do I see on Amazon, a new makeup book! I don't know why, but makeup books are not released very often, so when they are I get really excited. My eyes lit up like light bulbs. Francois Nars is about to release a new book after ten years! His first book being "Make Up Your Mind". The genius behind the brand that is most infamous for it's blushes is going to educate us once more. This is the description Amazon gives about the book:

From Fran├žois Nars, one of the most respected and imitated cosmetics designers in fashion today, comes a totally new, revolutionary instruction manual on makeup for today’s woman. Established in 1994 by renowned cosmetics designer Fran├žois Nars, NARS Cosmetics is one of the most recognizable and coveted cosmetics and skin-care brands, with a huge international following. Nars’s visionary approach to makeup and innovation within the industry has forever changed the face of beauty. Here Nars combines his expertise in makeup and photography to create a makeover manual that transforms the application of makeup into the ultimate form of self-expression. The book celebrates Nars’s unrivaled vision as a makeup artist, providing visual and textual narratives of his cosmetic process, inspiring readers to re-create his lessons on their own, and featuring examples of the newest, freshest looks and color palettes popular today. Employing Nars’s own before and after makeover photographs of a variety of models of all different ages, races, and skin tones—and combining these images with the designer’s instructional sketches on transparent overlays—this volume is the definitive do-it-yourself guide for anyone interested in the transformative power of cosmetics.

The book will be released and go on sale on, April 5, 2011. It will retail for $24.87(prices subject to vary). It is also available for pre-order. This book will be on my "product purchase" list, which is only about one hundred miles long! Will you be purchasing this book?
