Looking for the best beauty books, either for yourself of as gifts? Try out some of these great books!
The Beauty Buyble: The Best Beauty Products of 2007 (pictured below) was my favorite of last year and there are still some available. This set consists of a book describing a wide range of beauty products and a comprehensive set of samples, all packaged up in a nice box. You can read my full review and the sample list here. I have not yet heard word on a 2008 version. I am hoping there will be one! This would be a great gift for the beauty product lover in your life.
The 5-Minute Face: The Quick & Easy Makeup Guide for Every Woman is a good basic makeup guide with nice pictures. Read the full review here.
The Little Black Book of Style (pictured below) was my favorite fashion read of the year. Written by Nina Garcia of Elle Magazine and Project Runway, this is a pretty little book with beautiful illustrations, and it is full of great fashion advice and history. It would be a classy book gift to give this year. Read my full review here.
The following books I have read and recommend but not reviewed yet:
Beauty, The New Basics provides good basic beauty instruction.
Bobbi Brown Living Beauty is a nice, hefty book, full of great looks.
For the budget conscious, How to Be a Budget Fashionista: The Ultimate Guide to Looking Fabulous for Less is the ultimate manual for shopping on the cheap. This a seriously good guide!
