There are Complete Idiot's Guides to nearly everything under the sun — including being sexy, self-hypnosis, and RVing (yes, really). But, there’s no such guide to beauty. Why? Because beauty, an elusive and highly subjective topic, can’t be contained in one book.
So, what's a girl looking for a tome of solid beauty advice to do? The good news is, there are books that can help you in whatever area you wish to master, be it fishtail braids or nail art — you just have to know where to look. To help you in your quest, we reviewed classic, new, and soon-to-be-released books about nails, skin, hair, makeup, and tons of other topics you may be interested in.
Whether you’re looking to say goodbye to that acne once and for all, make like the next YouTube mogul, or master the art of no makeup-makeup, find your inspiration with these reads.
