In this highly praised volume, Richard Corson chronicles the pursuit of beauty from Ancient Egypt to the present day, concentrating mainly on makeup traditions of the Western world, with examples from other countries included for comparison. Corson describes the cosmetics with which men and women have decorated their faces, how they have applied them, and what they looked like as a result. This third edition includes updated material by James Sherwood, fashion columnist for the Independent and author of Models Close Up.

'A monumental book.' - Daily Telegraph; 'Chronicles in devastating detail the history of that absorbing folly - the pursuit of beauty... An encyclopedic study, a valuable book of reference.' - TLS; 'Together with Fashions in Hair it provides a comprehensive range of reference for students of fashion and all those professionally engaged in the exploitation of vanity.' - Guardian
