9780007549795: Pretty Honest: The Straight-Talking Beauty Companion

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models with wholly-unachievable-to-most women looks, product review-heavy volumes which become almost instantly outdated, or tracts of holistic mumbo jumbo, like how to make an unproven face pack from organic molasses and rough-hewn porridge oats.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

Product Description:

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

Think of beauty books – cue immediate images of coffee-table photographs of ludicrously beautiful models with few clothes and fewer time restraints, works inundated with ‘up-to-date’ reviews that may as well be Edwardian or holistic mumbo jumbo on how to make a face mask with molasses and some roughly hewn porridge oats.

Not anymore…

Covering everything from teenage skin to that milestone 80th birthday, botox to no-botox, celebration to grief, Sali Hughes, leading journalist and broadcaster, shows real women how to make the most of makeup’s physically and emotionally transformative powers in a work that is part instruction manual, part love letter to makeup – whilst employing a writing style that combines beauty editor, feminist and painfully funny best friend.

Review:

‘Britain's best beauty writer … This book is equal parts sass, sense, lipstick and laughs’
Lauren Laverne

‘If it's on my face, it's because Sali recommended it.’
Caitlin Moran

‘Sali is a total joy to read. She writes about beauty with love, authority and honesty. I trust her completely’
Marian Keyes

‘Obey Sali. She knows her stuff’ India Knight

‘Sali decodes beauty for any woman with smart, simple and practical advice’ Bobbi Brown
