Celebrity makeup artist and TV makeover specialist Ramy Gafni knows no one is born perfect, not even his famous clients. In How to Fake Real Beauty, the makeup guru shares his secrets to enhancing a woman’s natural beauty while “faking” what she doesn’t have.

Some people are thought to be born with flawless features, but many of these gifts are acquired, and the quickest, easiest way is to create the illusion using makeup and a little moxie. The power of makeup goes a long way toward helping you fake anything — a clear complexion, fuller lips, brighter eyes — whatever you want! It’s all a matter of knowing how!

In How to Fake Real Beauty, Ramy shares the tried-and-true tricks of the trade. So prepare for the red carpet — whether it’s the one in your head or an actual awards show. This guide will teach you how to get ready for your close up and confidently take center stage in any situation.
