12 Beauty Books Worth Adding To Your Reading List

Discover our round-up of beauty bibles to lose yourself in


The New Beauty by Kari Molvar (available from May 2021)

It's worth adding this book to your reading list for the painterly cover alone. Bold, bright and visually led, Kari Molvar’s The New Beauty takes a contemporary look at beauty in the context of culture and fashion, and takes the reader on a visual journey into the past, present and future of self-expression. The American beauty and lifestyle journalist explores how the art of transformation is no longer a superficial act, and shares unique insights into how beauty practices challenge gender, build communities and usher in a new era of self-care.
