Meet the bibles of the beauty world

Amazing Face 

When Zoë Foster Blake speaks, you LISTEN! Or in this case, read. The former Cosmopolitan and Harper’s Bazaar beauty director, boss lady of Go-To skincare and author extraordinaire has put all of her handy-dandy tricks to use. Amazing Face has all the answers to your questions about makeup brands, skincare routines, how to perfect winged liner and much more.

Amazinger Face

Here she is, back at it again with her NEW book, Amazinger Face (great title, I must say!). This updated version has more than 60 new pages of clever beauty tricks, how-to guides and everything you need to know about sunscreen, how to conceal unwashed hair and everything in-between.

Lauren Conrad Beauty

Lauren, the obvious (well, my obvious) favourite from MTV’s The Hills has her own book sharing all of her beauty secrets. She spent years learning from the pros and she reveals it all in this tome dedicated to all things makeup, hair and nails. There are illustrated step-by-step lessons and Lauren’s personal anecdotes to look forward to. She’s the queen of special-occasion looks!

Love my @laurenconrad book so many good tips and tricks ❤️ #laurenconradbeauty #fashionblogger #liketkit #beautyblog
