Beauty Books from the 80's

My Mum had a clear out a few weeks back and as I was mooching through some of the stuff on her bed, I came across these little gems.

Beauty Books are something i've never really reached for but I do know a lot of beauty obsessed girls like to enduldge in them and give them a good once over before stacking them on their shelves in beauty rooms. Unfortunately for me, i'm a 'look at the pictures and flick through the pages' kinda girl when it comes to stuff like that. My Mum was the same. She loved wearing makeup when she was younger and she always used to put a bit of eyeshadow and lipstick on me when I went to the school discos. 

She had these books back in the 80's when she was at school and even swears by some of the techniques mentioned in them. It's funny to look through it and read some of the ways to apply makeup etc and compare it to how I do it as some of it is the same (the pat of tissue after applying lippy method is from my Mum but she got it from here!) Also, some of the hairstyles are terrible haha but who knew that they would be getting re-created 30 years on?! 

Take a look through and see what things they cover! 

Do you have anything like this? I'd love to see if you do! 

P.s. Don't forget to enter my giveaway to win a Hair Piece of your Choice!
