Book Club: Nylon Magazine Helps You Get "Pretty"

04/28/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

Whenever I hear about a new beauty book, I automatically think back to hours of my childhood spent poring over pages, trying to determine whether I was a Spring or a Summer for my makeup colors. But when I saw Pretty: The Nylon Book of Beauty, I couldn’t put it down. From the edgy photos to the encyclopediac list of beauty icons from the ’20s through the ’90s (and how to recreate their signature looks) to the pages of must-have products, there was something that made me want to read through every page. Granted, I’m a beauty junkie to an extreme, but doesn’t everyone want to know how to get pretty? Get your own copy for $17 at — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

I can really recommend this book too! It is just amazing – and it’s so much fun reading a beauty book that avoids all the cliche kind of stuff (like spree vs steal) and that just works as a great inspiration for your own make-up. The design of the book is just so, well, pretty! A book to come back to again and again for inspiration.

I’m a makeup artist, but I’m still always looking for new tips, trends and product recommendations, so I’m definitely going to look for this next time I’m out.
