Publisher's Summary

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.

Love it

This is the first audio book that I listened to the whole way through. Sally's voice and the way she talks about, quite clearly, her passion is just brilliant. It's prompted me to listen to Pretty Iconic and I beg of her to write and record more books in the near future.
