“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.” — Charles William Eliot
I love books, the best part about them is the versatility. There's one book for every kind of love and every kind of woe. Whenever I breach a new subject or even want to talk about an old subject I always see myself turning towards a book. The more I wrote about beauty (skincare and make-up), the more I wanted to read. There’s something for everyone if you are intrigued by skincare, make-up or hair trends. Even if you are looking at starting a brand, or just want to lead a healthy lifestyle. Here’s our list of beauty books that you absolutely should have on your shelf!
