Sometimes, I feel like I eat, sleep, and breathe beauty. It's what I write about for my job, it's what I spend much of my expendable income on, and it's the thing that gets me talking most passionately. So it makes sense that when it comes to my reading material, beauty books are pretty up there. In fact, along with books about true crime and modern literature, beauty books are probably in my "most-ordered" on Amazon. I've read a lot over the years, and while there's a lot out there, a few have impressed me more than others. Here are the seven beauty books to buy if you're a skincare lover and makeup obsessive.

Let me preface this first by mentioning a couple of the books below are not yet out, but if you like the look of them, you won't have long to wait at all. I've selected a variation of books, some written by beauty insiders who have been editors or makeup artists, and others which are more visually pleasing, and will be great coffee table additions. Whichever you pick, I can promise these are the cream of the crop when it comes to beauty.

So without further adieu, here are the best beauty books I've ever read, and the ones I can't wait to get my hands on very, very soon.
