The musings of a final year medical student

Sunday, 31 January 2016


If you haven't heard of her, you need Sali Hughes in your life. Why? Apart from being beautiful and Welsh, she is a brilliant writer. Having assisted makeup artist Lynne Easton and working her way up on the London journalism scene, Sali knows everything about skin, makeup, and knows how to engage her readers.

I got hooked to her YouTube channel, where she has her own 'In the bathroom' series, interviewing celeb makeup artists such as Charlotte Tilbury and Mary Greenwell: she reveals what they actually use on themselves and their clients. However, when she began contributing for The Pool, a new online sassy website, I realised that there's so much more to Sali than her beauty prowess. She is fabulous, proud of her opinions and unashamed of her past. She has written about her own abortion to icons like Madonna. 

She has written her own book called 'Pretty Honest', and I believe she's in the process of writing another. The book is composed of her essays regarding all things beauty: hair removal, botox, finding the right red lipstick. As well as that, she teaches us to not be ashamed of our passion for beauty. We can make the most of our passion and not let it inhibit us from doing whatever the fuck we want. I asked for the book for Christmas and I reread it constantly. 

To me, Sali is all about girl power. She's smart, incredibly hard working and wonderful. Read her column in The Guardian. Read her pieces on The Pool. Check out her YouTube channel. You won't be sorry! 

Disclaimer: I have not been asked to write this, I'm not sponsored in any way. I just think Sali Hughes is a bloody amazing human being.
