Apart from buying and using beauty products, I find it important to read beauty books that will inspire me for new ideas and learn new things. This post will be about the three beauty books which I always go back to read.
Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual
This book gives a really good introduction to the great lady’s ideas and techniques of skincare and makeup. It also gives the budding makeup artist help on how to develop a portfolio. This book gives clear, precise advice on how to look after your skin and how to apply makeup in a correct and professional manner.This is a real help on wanting to understand different techniques on applying make up. I find the photographs easy to understand and this book can be a real help to a beginner and a pro. I would also recommend this book to a young teenager who’s just starting to get interested in make up.
Rae Morris Makeup: The Ultimate Guide.
If somebody asked me who is my all time favourite makeup artist, it would be this Australian lady. She is the best! This book is for the woman who is not nervous in trying different techniques of applying makeup. The makeup looks are not fashion fads but are timeless looks, but also to look glamorous and sexy! The photographs and the writing are clear and easy to understand and the great thing is that she uses the same techniques herself. Every woman should own this book and I really want her own range of brushes!!
Jemma Kidd Make-up Masterclass.
Jemma Kidd is a British makeup artist and this book is about all that she has learnt since founding her own makeup school in 2003. I feel this book really compliments the Bobbi Brown book very well. It has easy to recreate looks and a great overview of skincare, beauty advice and techniques whatever your age or lifestyle. The writing and photography are brilliant and she gives great tricks of the trade, just like Rae Morris. She has own make up range and brushes and I look forward to buying her new book.
I hope you enjoyed this post and please let me know your favourite beauty books?
