Look what I bought last week!

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 15 - 2010

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!

    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!

    *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!)

    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.
