A Beauty Bible

 


Hey guys, hope you're well. Today I'm just quickly going to talk about something that I've recently acquired and am in love with.
I first heard about this book from Becca Rose on YouTube, who got this as a Christmas present.
'Pretty Honest' is written by Sali Hughes, a beauty journalist who is very experienced in the industry, trying and testing hundreds of products, and she really knows her stuff. Her own website is branded as 'a site for opinionated, smart women who just happen to love beauty with a passion.' 

She cuts the crap and basically tells you what works, and what doesn't, as well as the best brands for certain beauty/makeup items. In the first few pages she also addresses and tackles the issue that women are branded shallow, vein, or simply more unintelligent for wearing makeup compared to those who choose to go bare faced on a daily basis. She explains that makeup can make women feel more powerful and ready for their day, and that some women (like me) love the part of the day which they can apply their makeup, choosing a different makeup look from one day to the next. That is what feminism is all about- freedom. Freedom to wear makeup, or not to. We are NOT betraying women and obeying society/men for wearing it. High five Sali.

If you are a beauty lover or even if you're not and just want useful tips this book would benefit you. Topics include how to choose the right foundation, your skin type, anti-ageing, brows, bridal, maternity makeup, salon etiquette and how to give and receive compliments. A great book for coming-of-age teens to the mature woman. My Mum's even got her own copy now after flicking through the pages of mine.


I picked up the hardcover version on Amazon (link) where it's being sold for around the £12 mark, and for Kindle it's around £9. It's the number one best-seller for a reason!
