Hope everyone had a great weekend! While I got a ton of behind the scenes blog work done, I did get the chance to relax and venture out to the bookstore. While the husband was in the cooking section and my son was in the youth section, I headed straight to the beauty section.
Call me old school, but I love to read makeup and beauty books. I know Youtube has makeup tutorials at your fingertips and can show you first hand tips and tricks, but nothing beats a hard copy..for me. The glossy pages filled with beautiful photographs and catchy print beat social media to me any day.
So what did I end up with? After browsing through a few, I decided on Bobbi Brown’s Beauty Rules, $24.95. I really enjoyed her Makeup Manual and this book was just as awesome. It features everything from hair to healthy diet to fashion advice. But what I really loved was how she demonstrated basic and solid makeup application techniques that everyone should master before anything else. I also love how she features women of every skin tone, age, and ethnicity. Follow Bobbi’s tips and you look like a more polished version of yourself instead of a makeup mask.
