De mooiste beautyboeken

Er zijn duizenden beautyblogs wereldwijd en ik vind het heerlijk om, heel 2.0, op internet over beauty te lezen en natuurlijk filmpjes te kijken op YouTube. Maar ik ben ook gek op boeken, op ouderwetse gebonden boeken, van papier, met tekst en foto’s erin. Heel veel professionals hebben geweldige beautyboeken geschreven met geweldige tips en vooral prachtige foto’s. Heerlijk om door te bladeren, en je kan er ook nog eens echt wat van opsteken. Benieuwd welke bekende beautyboeken er zijn? Lees dan verder.

Allure: Confessions of a Beauty Editor – Linda Wells

Erase myths like “dabbing toothpaste on a zit will make it disappear.” Remember that face cream, once opened, has only six months to live. It’s this type of credible, proven information–and dozens of other tidbits–that’ll make anyone’s eyes open wide, not shut. From the editorial brains of Allure magazine and its editor in chief, Linda Wells, this candid, no-holds-barred book provides data in an easy-to-digest manner–provocative headlines (“Tricks of the Trade,” “Beauty Myths”), 1 commandment for each of 10 chapters, three- to five-step how-tos for basic beauty chores (for instance salon waxing or shaving)–in short, a practical treasure trove from experts. Every page, in fact, should elicit a surprised look, an ah-ha. Antiperspirants do not cause cancer–or Alzheimer’s. Shape nails in “squoval” fashion (squared-off ovals). And long hair should not extend past breasts. Skin, facial, and whole-body advice for any age. Barbara Jacobs


Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me – Paula Begoun

Women spend an extraordinary amount of money on cosmetics–$45 billion a year in the U.S. alone. Now in its fourth edition, Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me strikes fear in cosmetics-counter consultants everywhere. First off, Begoun has deconstructed ingredient lists. Ever wonder what methylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben are doing in your mascara? And what is diazolidinyl urea? All four are potential irritants, and the latter is a preservative that can release formaldehyde, a class A carcinogen. Buyer beware.

Begoun also lists which companies are cruelty-free and which continue to conduct animal testing. The majority of the book–and that’s nearly 800 pages–is devoted to reviews of thousands of cosmetics, from cleansers, foundations, alpha-hydroxy acids, and moisturizers to lip liners, eye shadows, and concealers, all of which Begoun has personally tested. (There are no hair care products listed, as that warrants another book entirely: Don’t Go Shopping for Hair Care Products Without Me.)

She’s perfectly frank and tells it like it is. (On Revlon’s ColorStay Makeup: “goes far beyond the claim of ‘It won’t come off on him.’ It won’t come off when you want it to.”) You’ll learn how to tell when you’re being boondoggled by a salesperson, what’s overpriced and overhyped, as well as what’s overlooked. More than 200 brands are included, along with a helpful summary at the end that lists the best products for each cosmetic category. It should be noted that not only is Begoun a fine consumer advocate, she’s also a self-esteem advocate: she mentions time and again that even the best cosmetics won’t necessarily improve your life, and that’s a point well taken.

The Beauty of Color – Iman

From the beloved fashion icon and cosmetics entrepreneur, the first book to embrace global beauty and women of all ethnicities.

Few faces are as instantly recognizable as that of Iman’s. She’s been a groundbreaking supermodel for the world’s top designers and a muse for photographers, and she is the founder of the world’s most popular cosmetic brand for skin of color.

Now, in an era when the face of beauty has changed-and the most celebrated women in Hollywood include such stars as Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, and Lucy Liu-Iman delivers a new approach to makeup and skin care. With The Beauty of Color, she revolutionizes the way women of color can think about the way they look and feel. Iman resists categorizing people according to ethnicity, and instead embraces the whole range of skin color-light to dark. This is the first beauty and makeup book to truly address skin tones across the spectrum-Latina, Black, Asian, Indian, Native American, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, as well as women of mixed ethnicities.

Inspired by her two illustrious careers-first as a world-class supermodel and then as founder of two of the world’s top cosmetics lines-Iman is uniquely aware of the difficulties women of color have always had with skin care and makeup. In The Beauty of Color, Iman teaches readers how to work with skin care regimens and palettes targeted to their exact skin tone and type.

With stunning color photographs and images on every page, the book itself is a work of beauty, featuring Salma Hayek, Tyra Banks, Venus and Serena Williams, and other celebrities, as well as ordinary women of all ages. Unique, informative, and creative, The Beauty of Color is not only the first book to show women of every shade how to look their very best, but is also a landmark celebration of global beauty.

Makeup Manual – Bobbi Brown

This is the book that Bobbi Brown’s fans have been waiting for: her 25-plus years of makeup styling experience distilled into one complete, gorgeous book. Bobbi looks at everything from skincare basics to every aspect of facial makeup–from how to find the right color and type of foundation for any skin tone to how to apply every detail of eye makeup (Brows, Eye Liner, Eye Shadow, and Eye Lashes) no matter your eye color and shape. Of course there are never-before-seen tips on blush, bronzer, lip liners, lipstick, etc. And Bobbi looks beyond the face with informative chapters on “Hands and Feet” and “Body Skin Care.” Each chapter has thorough step-by-step basic directions for makeup application and easy-to-follow photographs and line drawings, along with Bobbi’s expert, yet assuring, advice. Plus, there’s a groundbreaking section of the book that will be of special interest to women who’ve wanted to know how makeup stylists do what they do: the top beauty secrets only these artists know, essential equipment to keep on hand, how to break into the business, and how to work with photographers and celebrities.

Breathtaking photos of the finished faces-from everyday looks to exotic runway style-along with advice on putting it all together for every woman, make this a book like no other.

BOBBI BROWN’S MAKEUP MANUAL will be the only book any woman will need to look absolutely fabulous.
