Bobbi Brown is not only a master of doing makeup but of explaining how to do makeup. It's why I love her so. I always have a flick through Bobbi's Makeup Manual if I'm feeling stuck in a rut or can't seem to get my wing the way I want it. Her books are bursting with useful advice, insider tips and celeb insights. And her latest book, Bobbi Brown Beauty Rules, is no exception. Designed for teens, it's a gorgeous first beauty bible to buy a niece or goddaughter. As well as including the obvious makeup application tips, it's a book that addresses beauty from the inside out. Bobbi talks about the importance of being a good friend, of exercising and eating right and, of course, having a good skincare routine. Peppered with before and after makeovers and advice from models such as Coco Rocha and celebs like Hilary Duff (who also wrote the foreword), it's such a beautiful gift for someone just starting out with makeup. LOVE.
Bobbi Brown Beauty Rules will be available from 10 October. Stockists: 1800 061 326.
