Many of my friends would have heard me say a countless amount of times that ‘I don’t have time to read books. Pretty Honest however, is not a book. It is the beauty Bible! Let’s start with the book cover first, you know that good old saying to never judge a book by its cover? Well I always do, it’s a crime I know but I can’t help it. If you follow me on Instagram you will have already seen many many pictures with this book, I mean it’s blush pink and rose gold. It is totally Instagrammable!
With over 33 sections which range from ageing and motherhood right through to how to look good in pictures and beauty gifting. I love Sali Hughes’ very honest opinions (hence the name I guess) but on everything, beauty counter staff, salon etiquette and of course skincare. Drawing on her own experiences and beauty knowledge which she has a lot of! She is very clear about what are her opinions and what are actual facts. After reading this book, I have stopped becoming ‘lazy’ with my skincare routine especially at night. I now make sure I always wear a good facial oil or moisturiser for night, what’s the point of missing out on some good skincare going on while I am sleeping?
I love the foundation section, really giving good advice on how to choose the right foundation at any age. I also love that whenever she talks about products she always lists her favourite few brands. I think this is a great beauty reference book.
I also love the Beauty Icons section as I love looking at style icons anyway. This is such a good book for any beauty addict but also women of any age, teenage girls suffering with acne and wondering about skincare, new mums feeling like a wreck and need a little beauty pick me up right through to dealing with wrinkles, ageing gracefully and doing Botox the right way.
You can get Pretty Honest here on Amazon and most major book stores.
I love it and if there were to be an Even More Pretty Honest (a second book!) I would definitely read it! Have you read this book? What did you think?
