Pretty Iconic

Sali Hughes

New beauty products are launched every day, but which ones really do the job, underneath all of the packaging? And which longstanding classics deserve to be dusted off, before they are forgotten in amongst all the new trends?

In Pretty Iconic, Sali Hughes takes us through her favourite beauty finds, from beloved, treasured favourites such as Chanel No 5, to mould-breaking game changers such as M.A.C’s Ruby Woo, and finally the future classics, those newer releases which will stand the test of time.

In the ever-expanding world of beauty, Sali uses her peerless expertise to curate the beauty products, new and old, which no modern woman should be without.
