Pretty Honest : The Straight-talking Beauty Companion, Hardback

Pretty Honest : The Straight-talking Beauty Companion Hardback



A witty, wise and truthful beauty handbook for real women on what works in real life from Sali Hughes, beloved journalist and broadcaster. "Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together" Elizabeth Taylor Beauty books.

Exquisite coffee-table affairs featuring improbably beautiful models with wholly-unachievable-to-most women looks, product review-heavy volumes which become almost instantly outdated, or tracts of holistic mumbo jumbo, like how to make an unproven face pack from organic molasses and rough-hewn porridge oats.

Not anymore. In Pretty Honest, Sali Hughes draws on over 20 years of wisdom, advice and expertise to show real women how to make the most of makeup's physically and emotionally transformative powers.

Covering everything from teenage skin to mature beauty, botox to bridal make-up, sickness to good health, it's a work that is part instruction manual, part love letter to makeup - in a writing style that combines beauty editor, feminist and painfully funny best friend.
