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models with wholly-unachievable-to-most women looks, product review-heavy volumes which become almost instantly outdated, or tracts of holistic mumbo jumbo, like how to make an unproven face pack from organic molasses and rough-hewn porridge oats.
Drawing on over 20 years of wisdom, advice and expertise, Sali shows real women how to make the most of makeup’s physically and emotionally transformative powers. She says: ‘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. Truthful advice on real life situations where looking and feeling good is helpful.’ 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.
