While you might have assumed that beauty professionals read magazines like Vogue, Elle, Cosmo, and Harpers Bazaar, youd actually be wrong.

Thats because these are all magazines for regular people, or, put another way, theyre what our clients read! Theres nothing wrong with these mags, of course. They make for perfectly good reads and can often carry really great advice for beauty novices and professionals alike.

Still, when you work in the beauty industry, you’re lucky enough to have several magazines catered directly to you, and below, we’ve complied a list of our 5 favorites:
