(209) Beautiful Books


am6

I adore books - The kind that sit perfectly on a coffee table and are an explosion of beautiful photography. Over the years I've built up a collection I'm quite proud of. Most of these books are predominately fashion and beauty based.

I have two new books which add to my expanding collection and at this time of the year I love nothing more than having a cup of tea whilst flicking through beautiful books. I always find if I'm lacking in inspiration these kinds of books are definitely a pick me up. 

Alexander McQueen - Fashion Visionary

First up is an amazing addition from Alexander McQueen. I got the Savage of Beauty book last Christmas and this is the latest book which is looks at the gorgeous collections of McQueen throughout the years. The imagery is just breath taking and it really highlights some of the late McQueen best achievements.

Jemma Kidd - Make-Up Secrets

Next up is a fantastic make up book for those of you who are interested in beauty tips and tricks this is honestly such a great encyclopaedia to everything beauty. Jemma Kidd is well known for her make up school and this book is enough to school on you on everything from complimenting your complexion to braving colour.  I love books that not only explain things in a simple way but also has great imagery to support the teachings.

  3. Wow, I'm really intrigued by the Jemma Kidd book, it looks great. A few years ago I borrowed Scott Barnes' book featuring Jlo called "About Face" from my sister, and it triggered my passion and love of make-up! It's probably one of the most fascinating books that I've read. The power of a book, ey! x
