Makeup Books

When I started out there where very few books for reference , hard to get hold of and although a little outdated now worth ever dollar spent!
I was always an Fangoria nut and have the first issue and thousands after. Its the publication of other leading books that have made me continue to be encouraged to do better in my career!
Although some of the original books still stand the test of time there has been an amazing increase in publication for the aspiring and working makeup artist to wet your appetite and lean more and more about the products available for your craft. I encourage everyone to have a library of reference material as you just never know when you will need it. My book collection is crazy big and I love it. It also reminds me on how far we have come in Make Up.
I have included some reference books on my blog from Amazon.com as this is where I get most of my books these days. I HOPE YOU ENJOY and start adding or even just start reading. The magicians of our industry sharing there tricks of the trade for everyone.   Happy reading .  Kym
