Making Up

Rex, Author, Rex Hilverdink, Author Clarkson N Potter Publishers $19.95 (123p) ISBN 978-0-517-55754-9
Makeup artist Rex Hilverdink, who is known internationally as Rex, brings a measure of common sense to the beautification of women, and freelance writer Jewell expresses his advice with an above-average writing style and a minimum of pap. The book discusses such paraphernalia as brushes for brows, cheeks and lips as well as various creams, bases, shadows and other cosmetics. Skin care and makeup instructions are tailored to facial shape, skin type and, to some degree, personality type. This beauty book provides facile, easy-to-follow tips on correcting ""nature's'' flaws, from minimizing bulging eyes to making thin lips fuller. The illustrations, all drawn by Rex, add much appeal to the attractive package, although more how-to pictures would have made this an even more practical book. The format of the oversize volume is generous, though perhaps not so efficient for easy reference. First serial to Woman's Day. (November)
