BOOKS: MAKEUP & BEAUTY
You all know that beauty is one of my most loved passions, it’s something that I talk about almost every single day, so it’s no surprise that my shelves are over flowing with books that focus around my favourite subject. Each and every one of the books that I’m about to talk about are beautiful in their own right, I just love to see these babies lined up in my office waiting for me to flick through them with a hot cup of tea by my side. These are the books I turn to when I’m feeling a bit ‘meh’. Within these pages there are beauty tips, makeup tricks and healthy, nourishing recipes that will help me shine from the inside out. Leave a comment down below and let me know what your favourite beauty books are, I’d love to know and expect a second follow up post because there were just too many to mention in one post!
If you’re one of my OG viewers you’ll know that Lisa Eldridge is one of my favourite girl bosses, she’s one of the worlds most formidable and most respected make up artists, so naturally when I saw this book pop up on my list of recommended books on amazon I knew I had to add this one to my basket. The history of makeup is a subject that has always interested me, so reading ‘Face Paint’ was an experience that proved to be both enjoyable and informative. I found it so fascinating to learn about how techniques and trends in makeup have been influenced by moments in history, and how the materials that women have used have changed and evolved over the years. As a beauty lover I felt it was important to expand my knowledge on a subject that I speak about daily. Give this one a go if makeup is your thang.
‘The Nature of Beauty: Organic Skincare, Botanical Beauty Rituals and Clean Cosmetics’- Imelda Burke
This book is almost like a handbook for someone interested in natural beauty. Imelda Burke is hugely respected in the industry and is the mastermind behind the London shop Content Beauty Wellbeing. I highly suggest you pop into the store or check out the website for some serious beauty inspo. It showcases natural ingredients that work wonders for your skin in a way that’s easy to digest. It begins with reasons to switch from conventional products for more natural ones-I highly recommend it! (Oh, and I love the cover!)
