I’m so excited about these two new books (and my new kitty jumper from Orla Kiely!):

I’ve already raved about The Dress: 100 Iconic Moments in Fashion over on our tumblr, but you also need to see The Daily Face. It takes after this very popular blog and is written by Annamarie Tendler, who is a makeup artist and is one of the contributors for online beauty mag Glamour. It has lots of different makeup looks in it, including three different cats eye looks. Three!! Very helpful with great illustrations and easy-easy instructions; sweet!

Syndetics book coverThe dress : 100 iconic moments in fashion / Megan Hess.
“From Ms Hepburn’s elegant black shift to Lady Gaga’s meat gown, The Dress relives the marvellous and unforgettable dresses of fashion: think Liz Hurley’s safety-pin ensemble, Princess Di’s neverending wedding dress, or that unforgettable white halter sported by Marilyn in The Seven Year Itch. Megan Hess’ fabulous illustrations celebrate a collection of frocks that take readers on a decadent romp through fashion history, from the haute to the hot. This is a compendium of gowns that have captured a moment in history, the spirit of a generation and the indefinable energy of a fashion icon, and an exploration of why they continue to resonate with audiences, decades on.” (Syndetics summary)

Syndetics book coverThe daily face : 25 makeup looks for day, night, and everything in between! / Annamarie Tendler ; photographs by Justin Ouellette.
“Makeup artist Annamarie Tendler’s Daily Face feature on her hugely popular Tumblr blog has inspired hundreds of thousands of followers. Now in her first book, she takes readers around the clock with 25 easy-to-achieve looks for everything from an afternoon first date to a retro-glam cocktail party or a sultry smoky-eyed late night. She even throws in some head-turning costume ideas. It’s all about personal expression. Step-by-step photos make it easy for anyone (even the makeup challenged) to follow along. Tendler’s pro tips and “less is more” philosophy will appeal to women who want to look amazing without spending hours in front of the mirror. A chic, purse-sized flexi paperback, this is the perfect guide for the girl on the go.” (Syndetics summary)
