I totally love the Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual. It gives tips on everything you need to know and beyond. Ranging from teen makeup to the mature lady makeup.
This book is a definite Must have for anyone who loves makeup in any form.

This might not make an entry, but I honestly have no beauty books. Likely why I usually have so much trouble with makeup!

Miss B said...

Don't worry Toy Story, you don't have to own a book to enter-you're entered Toystory!

The first and only beauty/style book that I have owned/been given is The Teen Girl's Beauty Guide to Total Color Success (1986). Of course, I've taken some cues from friends, relatives, magazines, and various beauty blogs since then. It however would be great to have a more updated/relevant staple. Thanks for the giveaway!

I love Bobbi Brown's books!

Sherry said...

I own several beauty books and have read many more but the one that I learned the most from, I read many, many years ago. The book was over 20 years old when I read it in the late sixties, but I learned from it what has proved to be the most timeless beauty advice that I have ever encountered anywhere. I am sure that the book has been out of print for decades! It was "The Westmore Book of Beauty", co-written by several members of Hollywood's famed family of makeup artists. It dealt with not only street makeup, but also with stage, photography, and film makeup. I would give just about anything to find a copy of this book, but have not been able to thus far. The knowledge that I gained from this book has served me very well and with minor adjustments over the years, I have always been able to keep my looks both current and professional-looking. Good, basic knowledge of cosmetics and your own face is something that can never be out-dated!

Hana said...

I really like that one Kevyn Aucoin book. I think it was called Face Forward? I got it back in middle school and it totally shaped my taste in makeup!

boofsmom said...

I just turned 41 (ugh) and have never owned a beauty book. It's probably time, though! I really like Nina Garcia, and think of lot of her-she would never have gottem as far as she has if she didn't know what she was talking about! I would love to own her books! Thanks for the opportunity!

Fair_Elaine said...

I'm laid off of work and have plenty of time to devote to these books.

boofsmom said...

To Sherry, who posted about the Westmore Book of Beauty: I was curious about this book, so I looked it up. There are 2 used copies of The Westmore Beauty Book published in 1956 available right now on Amazon. It is by 6 brothers who did Hollywood makeup, so I think it is the one you're talking about. It looks like a great book!

Liza767 said...

The only thing close to a beauty book I have is my subscription to Paula Begoun's Beautypedia. I love reading her reviews and learning about how ingredients affect my skin. I'd love to read these two books.

I don't have any "Beauty" books. I would love some. I am 52 and started a little late in life but recently started wearing makeup again and actually buying more fashionable clothing. Its kind of hard for a woman my age to learn to apply makeup and such but I have been studying online a lot. I really hope I am blessed enough to win! Thanks for the giveaway!

I still use my two Kevin Aucoin books for make-up advice, aside from those I typically rely on magazines and blogs for style and beauty advice.

I love Nina though so it would be great to win!

I love Making Faces and Face Forward, both by Kevin Aucoin. He could work magic on women (and men, too!).
