More than just books on how to do makeup, you will need some books to inspire you to be a creative person in both your artistry and your business. These are some that I have found helpful.

These two books from Austin Kleon are awesome for any artist/creative entrepreneur. Use Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work to get ideas when thinking about creating and publishing your work and how you will share it. 

This book will inspire any artist or creative person to look at the process, not the end result, of how they make their unique contributions. Thinking about your projects from this creative perspective will give you a fresh take on what you are creating.
