“She was witty and came across eloquent and intelligent throughout. She talked openly and honestly about the role beauty products play in our lives and the negative perception from certain individuals.”
Sali Hughes has become one of my favourite columnists in the last year due to her straight talking, matter of fact writing where she presents her opinion and argument succinctly. When tickets went on sale in late October for the book event for Hughes’ new book Pretty Iconic I jumped at the chance of going along to see one of my favourite writers.
On the 29th of November Sali Hughes was in Waterstones West End in Edinburgh to discuss Pretty Iconic and her general view on individuals perceptions of beauty products and the use of a fore mentioned products.

When Sali Hughes first came out to a very excited audience my initial thought was she is taller than I expected. That may have been down to the gorgeous Gucci heels she was wearing but that was my initial thought nonetheless. My next thought was how flawless she was – her skin and makeup were totally flawless. She is beautiful. I have always found interviews with Hughes to be interesting and informative without feeling like you are having a sale pushed on you. After all Hughes is a writer. This event was no different, the chat was not forced. She was witty and came across eloquent and intelligent throughout. She talked openly and honestly about the role beauty products play in our lives and the negative perception from certain individuals. At the end of the event, there was a question and answer session which ranged from questions about Creme de la Mer to whether she would ever launch her own beauty brand. Every question was given a considered answer and was treated with equal waiting.
Before the event was over, Hughes signed our book which was extremely exciting as you can imagine! She chatted away to everyone as she signed copies of Pretty Iconic. To top the night off, she told me I had great eye makeup *insert fan girls squeals*
