Look what I bought last week!

Makeup Your Mind by Francois Nars

It’s my first makeup book, and I fear it may herald a new addiction.  I already have more coffee table books than room for coffee tables thanks to my passion for photography, but I’m on the hunt for more!

Tell me, what are some of your favourite makeup books?

***

In other news, thanks so much for your kind ‘get better soon’ wishes yesterday, I wasn’t well enough to make it up to London today, so Mr L has promised to take me to Gunwharf Quays and spend aslong as I want in the CCO instead.

I did make it to the doctors yesterday and I’m looking at what appears to be either a stomach ulcer or a  cholecystectomy which has left me with a bile leak.  At least I feel less of an e. coli carrying skank.  Bwuahah, every cloud and all that!

  1. ook! I had a cholesys done a few years back, best to get it whipped out if needs be.

    I don’t own any makeup books or coffee tables but just wanted to send love and feely bettery thoughts! xxx

    Good heavens, I love that book, great buy! If you liked it, you should also like the ones by Kevin Aucoin (RIP, such a gentle soul he was), especially “Making Faces” which has great no-nonsense advice and some really unexpected looks and transformations.

    Get well soon!
    xoxo,

  3. Gorgeous looking book, I’ve always wondered whether to buy a cosmetics book or not! Will you give us a review? x

  4. I have the Trish McEvoy makeup book and it’s definitely a must-have for makeup lovers.

    need to look the coli thing in the dictionary. bless you xx
    i dont have makeup books, but i am addicted to browsing the makeup pages at the end of a magazine: very cool looks

  7. I am happy to hear that you are better and I also want this book :)

  8. Rae says:

    *just keeps sending you love* I have a nasty cold, but it’s nothing compared to your scary medical words!

    Makeup Your Mind is actually one of my favourite MU books :) Kevyn Aucoin’s are lovely as well, though! (Vogue, Marie Claire, and Bobbi Brown can all be passed over. The Bobbi one would actually be great for a complete beginner, though, if you were buying for someone else!)

  9. Lillian says:

    Oooh i’d love a review of this books! I have quite a few makeup books but not this one :)
    And i’m so sorry to hear about you being ill, i hope you get better soon and the naughty bile leak gets fixed soon. x

  10. Julia says:

    The Alex Box one is beautiful, too, someone said. Get well soon. :)

  11. Lily says:

    Love this book, I couldn’t afford it in college so I borrowed it from the library and photocopied ALL of it haha. The Kevyn Aucoin books are great, and the Bobbi Brown beauty book.

  12. baby in a corner says:

  13. Tina says:

    Hope that you feel well soon and that it proves to be nth serious!

    Sorry to hear you’ve been poorly! Get well soon :)
    That book looks awesome, was it expensive?

    Rae Morris´ ‘Makeup – the Ultimate Guide’ is a great one too!
