Pixiwoo, Face. This is a makeup book unlike any other. First of all, because its authors are the Chapman sisters – and if you happened to see a video of theirs on YouTube, you probably know why that makes a difference. Secondly, because the tutorials are so good and on point that it almost feels like still watching them on screen. Their photos of step-by-step instructions really make their books “dummy-friendly”. If you want to refresh your technique, and try out a new look, go ahead and add this to your collection.
Bobbi Brown, Beauty from the Inside Out. Ok, we are technically cheating, with this one. This book has not been released at the time of writing, but it’s just too beautiful not to include it in out list. Once again, Bobbi Brown shows us why she is the author we just cannot seem to do without, only, this time around, it’s not about makeup. Or, to be more precise, it’s not only about makeup. On top of the usual makeup tips, this book also includes lifestyle tips, to take care of your beauty by having a more conscious lifestyle. “Add to wishlist”: click!
Hair by Sam McKnight. We challenge you to find a better collection of hairstyles than this. Try if you like, but we promise you, it will be hard to top this one.
