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.
No matter how much you already know about beauty, there are tips and tricks to be learned from this book - very simple and practical ideas. Highly recommend it.
