Must Haves - Makeup Books

As much as I stress about how assisting is the best way to really learn the in's and out's of this business, I always love having some books to help out with the process.  When I first started out, these books were my bibles.  I read them from cover to cover, learning everything and anything that I could.  Some have really great information and some are just purely for eye candy purposes.  While I don't own every single one of them, I'm going to list them anyway.  I'll list them in two separate categories (which I own and read and which I've heard others highly recommend).

I'm sure many of you have read other books that are not in this list. So please, feel free to share your favorite books and I'll be sure to add them to the list.
