Takako Fleur Beauty Book

dscn9815-s.jpg.jpg

I am always mooching on YesAsia.com, as they have a lot of Asian beauty books. It’s hit and miss – the good ones have lots of visuals (since I can’t read them) and just look great. Some are very text heavy or may be really sparse. Takako is a Japanese make up artist and from […]

VOCE & Biteki magazines, November

dscn9516-s.jpg.jpg

I love Japanese Beauty magazines. The two that can be bought in the UK from the Japan Centre are Biteki and Voce. I wish they stocked Maquia too. Biteki came with a free gift too! It was either a eyeliner or a mascara – I wanted the mascara so guess what I got? The liner […]

Book Review: Eye Candy

dscn9377_s

You can never have too many make up books, right? Sometimes there isn’t much that is new to discover in Make Up books but it’s always nice to see some nice pics and get some ideas. I got this book, Eye Candy by Linda Mason from Amazon for £6. Its a small book that is […]

Kevin B – Chinese Make Up Book

dscn8795_s

I love all make up books, apart from the ones from the 80s with bad spiral perms and bushy brows.  I love looking at Chinese language make up books – the emphasis is on LOOK since I can’t read Chinese. My latest find is Kevin B’s Make up book split into a day/skincare guide and […]

Sofina UV Lucent

As I get older I worry about the dreaded sun and wrinkles – so Sunscreen protection was something to consider. I own Clinqiue City block SPF 30, which resembles a greyish thick white cream, that leaves you looking like a corpse. I own RMK’s sunscreen,SPF 30, which is nice without a colour cast but is […]

Biteki Magazine DVD

Occasionally, I will buy VOCE or Biteki Magazine; both are Japanese Mags, that specialize in cosmetics. Subscription to the UK is very expensive due to shipping, so insead, every few months I will order the magazines from the Japan Centre in London – although they done run out quickly. I was very pleased in the […]

Beauty Book Review: The Asian Bridal Look Book

I found this book whilst reading some Asian Bridal Magazine (For American readers, Asian as in Indian and Pakistani descent as opposed to Chinese. I know that in the US, Asian tend to refer to Japanese/Chinese/Korean/Vietnamese etc.) I love the strong bold looks that carry well on the strong Asian bone structure so I sourced […]

Beauty Book Review – Bobbi Brown, Beauty

This was Bobbi’s first book, and she has released other ones since this one, but I do love looking at this one because it is her first and captures the essence of her make up. There is something about her Make Up – the soft caramels and plums on the counter, that Make Bobbi Brown […]

Beauty 103 Book Review

I mentioned below a series of books called Beauty 101, 102, 103, which I can’t read but love the pictures to! Beauty 103 came with a DVD and I’ve had a chance to watch it a few times. It’s a pretty good vid! It is divided into three main sections – one his the base […]

Beauty Book Review – Make Up Your Mind, Francoise Nars

Coming in a hardback, spiral bound format, Make Up Your Mind is a stylish beauty book and not your typical Make Up Manual. Divided up into sections by a sheet of acetate, each look shows the bare face (before) then the after face on the right, with neat lines drawn in the acetate to show […]

Beauty 101, 102 and 103!

Always a fan of beauty books in any language, I discovered LI QIAN RONG’s Beauty Books, 101, 102 and – can you guess? 103 a while ago. Beauty 103 is pretty new and despite it being help up in the post (took a month to arrive :O should have been a week). It is written […]
