Best Books For Beauty & Fashion Bloggers

I love reading thriller genre but as a beauty blogger I’ve found a new love for reading beauty related books as well. You can use them as a flatlay prop and gain knowledge about beauty so it’s literally a win-win situation if you are a beauty blogger.

In today’s post, I’m going to share with you my favourite books in terms of beauty. If you’ve read my previous post around this subject, you’ll see I’m going to mention some of the same books but explaining why I find them helpful. If you are interested then keep on reading!

J’adore lire des thriller mais, en tant que blogueuse beauté, j’ai découvert un nouvel amour pour la lecture de livres sur la beauté. Vous pouvez les utiliser comme accessoires de flatlay et acquérir des connaissances sur la beauté. C’est donc littéralement une situation gagnant-gagnant si vous êtes une blogueuse beauté.

Dans le post d’aujourd’hui, je vais partager avec vous mes livres préférés en termes de beauté. Si vous avez lu mon précédent article sur ce sujet, vous verrez que je vais mentionner quelques-uns des mêmes livres, mais en expliquant pourquoi je les trouve utiles. Si vous êtes intéressé, continuez à lire!

I love Megan Hess’ books, I find the illustrations very beautiful and the content is very interesting as well. With “Paris Through A Fashion Eye”, you can find out every little detail about Paris in terms of shopping, restaurants, cafe, hotel etc. It’s pretty much a 101 guide!

As a French I literally had to get this book! The reason why I love this book so much is the fact it depicts the French fashion in such an elegant way. Plus the gorgeous illustrations are literally the cherry on top of the cake!

This book is perfect for both beauty and fashion bloggers, even though it only revolves around the topic of fashion. But still, you can find so many information if you are interested about fashion and art.

Once again the illustrations are simply beautiful, there are 6 sections in this book which includes Designers, Icons, Weddings, Music, Film, and The Oscars in terms of the author’s favourite dresses. All these dresses includes illustrations, context and some facts about the dress and the occasion.

Ce livre est parfait pour les blogueurs de la beauté et de la mode, même s’il s’articule autour du thème de la mode. Néanmoins, vous pouvez trouver autant d’informations si vous vous intéressez à la mode et à l’art.

In terms of content, this book is such an easy read and it will inspire you to create/find your own style.

The Glam Guide by Fleur De Force

best books for beauty and fashion bloggers - new lune - the glam guide by fleur de force

This is the first beauty book I bought and I’d say it’s the most informative one out of all the books I’ve mentioned. It’s literally full of information mainly about beauty but it includes fashion and lifestyle as well.

If you are starting to get into makeup and want to know the basics, this book is the one you need! This book won’t be resourceful if you already all the basics otherwise this book is really good for beginners.

C’est le premier livre de beauté que j’ai acheté et je dirais que c’est le plus informatif de tous les livres que j’ai mentionnés. C’est littéralement plein d’informations principalement sur la beauté mais cela inclut aussi la mode et le style de vie.

Si vous commencez à vous maquiller et souhaitez connaître les bases, ce livre est celui qu’il vous faut! Ce livre ne vous apportera aucune ressource si vous connaissez déjà les bases, sinon ce livre est vraiment bon pour les débutants.

  9. Hi,
    my name is Amna Tambra. I am starting an online magazine store. It is called Speedy Magazine. The first magazine I want to publish is going to be on beauty.

    The format of that magazine will be I will interview 5 people questions about beauty. I was wondering if you’d like to be one of the people I interview for the magazine. I can send you some sample questions if you would like. The magazine will first be published as a digital magazine and I will start selling hard copies later.

    You may send in any pictures that you would like for the magazine. I will only ask about 20 questions about beauty.

    The goal for the magazines will be to make a positive difference in the world. Let me know if you are interested, because I would love for you to be apart of the first magazine.

    Thank You

  10. This was a great review. I will be getting a couple of these. Ialso love Meghan Hess, her illustrations are beautifully done and classic. I just ordered her book : “Fashion House Illustrated interiors from the fashion Icons of Style.” I can’t wait for it to arrive. Thank you!
