I used to be a big book reader when I was younger, you could never get me away from one. But as I’ve got older I’m struggling to get back into reading after having to read so many for my degree! I’ve been trying to get back into reading for a while, and for Christmas Chris bought me a couple of books that were on my wish list, one being Sali Hughes’ Pretty Honest.
I’ve seen many a beauty lover rave about this book, and being one myself I thought it would be a good idea for me to read this, as surely a book on beauty will help me get back into reading! Once I saw the size of the book I was a little put off, just because I’m not a big reader and this has a lot of pages in. But once I started reading I didn’t mind, especially as it was so full of useful beauty knowledge, I couldn’t put it down! One of my favourite sections is the skincare routine section, especially as I’m trying to get into a good routine and sometimes the amount of products I’m told I need can overwhelm me. Sali Hughes just talks straight about what products you really need, and since I’ve been following her recommendations I’m seeing a real difference. I also really loved the sections on brows, acne, and foundations, which are beauty areas I’ve often struggled with. Sali writes some great tips on all aspects of beauty, with a great section on teenage beauty which I wish I knew about when I was younger, would have made some of my beauty choices probably look a lot better!
I’ve spent many a night staying up reading Pretty Honest, and as the title suggests, I’ve found it to be a pretty honest book. This is essentially the beauty blogger bible, and if you’re ever confused by beauty products, this is the book to read! I’m glad I spent the time to sit and read a book for once, now to keep it up!
Have you read Pretty Honest? What did you think?
