San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2015
Makeup Gourmet and author Chris Scott’s new highly visual book Face with a Heart: Mastering Authentic Beauty Makeup immediately became an Amazon best seller in three major categories after its official launch June 2.
After only 24 hours, Face with a Heart was listed as the number one best seller in all three major categories allowed for listing on Amazon in the United States. Overseas, including Germany, United Kingdom and Canada, Face with a Heart ranked in the top 10 to make the book an official International Best Seller.
Face with a Heart’s immediate success validates years of hard work by Mr. Scott, both as a best-selling author and in growing Makeup Gourmet into an online makeup sales leader.
Mr. Scott said: “I am very humbled that Face with a Heart has become an instant international best seller as it makes all the hard work worth it. I was tracking launch sales when we hit number three then I took a short break. When I looked back I could hear my publicist screaming over Skype that we were at number one.
“I literally went numb. In fact, it felt surreal. I am very proud that the book has held its best seller position ever since.”
According to Mr. Scott, Face with a Heart represents a legacy book for himself and the Makeup Gourmet brand. It is a culmination of his unique techniques that illuminates a new method for applying beauty makeup. The criteria for this book are that every step needs to work for all face types and all lifestyles, or it did not make it into the book.
“I experimented with the geometry of the face and the energy of light on the 3D surface of the face. Combining specific anatomical placement of makeup, along with using correctors (colors that neutralize and brighten the skin, in precise geometrical shapes), this altogether new approach is the core concept that lead to the creation of Face with a Heart Authentic Beauty Makeup®,” he added.
Mr. Scott backs up his book with Face with Heart companion video tutorials on MakeupGourmet.com. The recorded sequences displayed in these videos are verbatim from the ‘how-to-apply’ section of his book.
The book launch included special gifts from launch partners. Most special is an audio file of a three-day Telesummit hosted by Mr Scott and fellow best selling author Lynn Serafinn. The theme was ‘The Keys to Feeling Authentically Beautiful’. The audio file of this inspiring event continues to be a gift from Mr Scott with every hardcover or electronic purchase of Face with a Heart.
Face with a Heart is available worldwide at Amazon.com and MakeupGourmet.com.
