We’re all about diving into the latest chick-lit or suspenseful page-turner but sometimes, a pretty picture is worth a 1,000 words. With that in mind, we curated several gorgeous tomes for the beauty enthusiast, ranging in topic from skincare to makeup to hair to perfume. Flipping through one is a feast for the eyes and a healthy helping of useful knowledge for the mind. Plus, they do a stellar job of sprucing up your home décor: Display them on a bookcase, stack them on your vanity or simply arrange them on the coffee table.
