All of them it really educates you on so many different techniques and ideas, don't be tied to just one.

Bobbi browns books are always really good, but if your looking for inspiration try 'Make-up is art' by Jana Rinuiri I think they are about to bring out a new edition

if you want to get in depth with more than you could EVER want to know then look into Vincent Kehoe's Techniques of the Professional Make Up Artist! He covers bald caps and different prosthetic appliances for the face as well!! Tons of info - but it's not all glossy and pretty like most books have been marketed. Great suggestions from EVERYONE here though! Thanks everyone!
