Welcome to what I like to call my new beauty bible. I've never actually been that interested in reading beauty books, but now that I tend to read more blogs and the beauty pages of magazines, I thought I would give 'Pretty Honest' a go after seeing it recommended by lots of beauty bloggers. Sali Hughes is a welsh (woop!) journalist who has written for brilliant magazines and is currently the beauty editor of The Guardian. With plenty of beauty experience under her belt, Pretty Honest shares Sali's love and knowledge of all things beauty - think of it as your new best friend.
When the book arrived I was actually surprised at how hefty it was! I had only been expecting a small book but Pretty Honest comes in a good old fashioned hardcover with its pretty pink design containing over 300 pages of beauty. Lately with books I have been finding it a little hard to concentrate but I knew after just a few pages that I would certainly be making my way through this book just fine. The book is set into lots of different chapters ranging from how to find out your skin type to fragrances, buying makeup gifts and where to get the best beauty advice. Trust me, this won't let you down. I've picked up lots of new information along the way and really would recommend it for a light hearted beauty read. I was also surprised to learn that using a toner isn't actually a must have on your skincare regime. It reminded me of just how much fun makeup is and I promise that when you're reading you'll be itching to be putting your makeup on or to give your skin a deep cleanse!
