Louise Young Timeless: A Century of Iconic Looks

Louise Young Timeless A Century of Iconic Looks

If you’re a beauty addict I’m pretty sure you’ve heard people rave about the Louise Young makeup brushes. I bought my first Louise Young Makeup Brushes a few years ago and I’ve been really impressed ever since so I was excited when Louise told me she’d launched a book; the Louise Young Timeless A Century of Iconic Looks, especially when she very kindly sent me a copy ahead of the launch.

If you’ve never tried the Louise Young brushes, I really recommend trying them as they’re amazing quality and they last incredibly well without losing their shape. My personal favourites are the; LY24A, LY51, LY52, LY38A and LY24B but I love every single Louise Young brush I own and I really rate the Louise Young Makeup range too. 

The Louise Young Timeless A Century of Iconic Looks is available from Amazon for £20 for the hardback version, and £5.99 for the Kindle version and I think it’d be a lovely gift for any beauty obsessive for Christmas, especially the hardback version as it’d make for a fab coffee table book. You can never go wrong with a great book, and this is my book review on Louise Young Timeless A Century of Iconic Looks.

Timeless is a beauty bible for the golden ages of style from renowned film, television and make-up artist Louise Young, along with leading film industry hairstylist Loulia Sheppard.

Step-by-step photography and clear, concise instructions help you to recreate make-up and hair looks from the past 100 years of beauty, from the dark, smouldering eyes of the jazz-age flapper to the red lips and victory rolls of the 1940s, right up to the electric colours of the 1980s and beyond.

Accurate, practical and beautiful, this is the ultimate guide to the most classic looks of all time.

Between them, Louise and Loulia have provided make-up and hair styling for stars such as Scarlett Johansson, Keira Knightley and Selma Hayek, and on films including Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Pride and Prejudice, Florence Foster Jenkins, Anna Karenina and The Duchess, among many others.

The book is amazingly set out into decades to show the hair and makeup looks of each era, and I love that there are photos of products too so the book would appeal to those that love hair, makeup looks or the makeup products themselves. I really like that the book includes step by step guides and tutorials so you can recreate the looks should you want to and they’re really well written so they’re super easy to follow. I imagine this book being a real must have for makeup artists or beauty professionals but even as a general beauty lover I’ve really enjoyed learning about the beauty trends and looks from the different decades, and it really is a timeless guide.

I’d love to know your thoughts on the beautiful Louise Young Timeless? Do you love beauty books?
