I honestly love a good makeup or beauty book that can help guide you through those days where you are prepping for a huge event, holiday party or even just your average day. While I have recently started experimenting with makeup and different products, I have really relied on several makeup books. I have my favorites and the two that I keep referring to are Scott Barnes and Lauren Conrad's fab books. Pick up one of these (or both!) for that doll in your life, best friend, mom or sister. They will be thanking you later. I promise.
Scott Barnes has written two amazing books on makeup. Purchase About Face or his latest, Face to Face, both $15.
