A witty, wise and truthful beauty handbook for real women on what works in real life from Sali Hughes, beloved journalist and broadcaster.
When it comes to the world of beauty journalism, it can be extremely tricky for readers to know who to trust and just as tough for journalists to earn that trust in the first place. Few manage to overcome both hurdles with their integrity intact and a viable business to their name to boot. However, Sali Hughes is a stellar example of how it can be done; a fact clear from the success of her career, her unbiased writing style and reputation for being unafraid to say what really works and what doesn’t.
As Beauty Editor of the Guardian, Contributing Editor of Red Magazine and founder of the award-winning SaliHughesBeauty.com, Sali’s straight-talking attitude has struck a chord with the beauty masses, sifting through the marketing gimmicks and ploys to present a refreshingly truthful representation of what’s out there – ‘beauty without the BS’ so to speak, to borrow a quote from the writer herself.
This is not your typical beauty advice book. Pretty Honest covers everything, from feminism, to post baby beauty, to chemotherapy, to Christmas shopping, to acne survival, to essential handbag supplies for a one night stand, to how best to put on makeup on the subway.
