Despite the fact that today every makeup guru or newbie beauty blogger has their own YouTube channel, where they share secrets of the beauty industry, books can bring together all knowledge under one cover, putting it into an exciting literary shape.
So, for example, if you set yourself the task of mastering various eye makeup techniques, taking into account the eye shape, skin type and other physiological features of the face, then “Everything Eyes” by the legendary makeup artist and founder of the Bobbi Brown Cosmetics empire Bobbi Brown may be your go-to book.
If you are interested specifically in the history of makeup, Lancôme creative director Lisa Eldridge, who studied early facial beauty treatments of Rome, Greece, China and Japan, the specific features during the Middle Ages, and also modern beauty technologies and trends, offers a deep dive on the subject.
All things makeup, self-care, proper lighting, mirrors, answers to how and with what frequency you need to clean your brushes, why you should not apply bright makeup when you are tired, and first aid for dull skin can be found in Trish McEvoy’s book with a feminist title “The Makeup of a Confident Woman”. That same Trish, whose mascara’s extraordinary temperature features have already become legends.
