Face Forward is a cosmetics book written by Kevyn Aucoin. It was a New York Times bestseller.
Aucoin's portrait subjects include Julia Roberts, Sharon Stone, Martha Stewart, Tori Amos and Aucoin's own mother. Little, Brown reported a 275,000-copy first printing (compared to 164,000 for his last book, Making Faces), and the publishing company had already ordered three more press runs by the end of the month, for a total of 425,000 copies.
A 12-page excerpt from the book ran in the October 2000 issue of InStyle magazine. The magazine also hosted a release party in September 2000. Oprah devoted a full episode to the book on October 6, of that year and Aucoin appeared on the Today Show on both October 10 and 11.
