Secretly we all want to be beautiful. And while we may not aspire to look like a waif-like model, few of us would turn down the genes that make Isabella Rossellini the icon of beauty that she is.

Packed with practical tips, inspirational photography, and fascinating facts, this stylish new edition of "Things a Woman Should Know About Beauty" can help you discover ways to make yourself more beautiful. Through cosmetics, treatments and a little attention to inside as well as out, you might be the only one to notice more than a subtle difference, but in the words of a woman who knows all there is about looking good..."Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful." (Sophie Loren).
Style and beauty cannot be defined or bought. Finding inner balance leads to outer radiance. This philosophy is central to India Hicks Island Beauty, where she explores and demonstrates the natural resources which surround her in her Caribbean idyll and how they can be applied to life anywhere. Miles from any gym or spa India uses nature to nurture. The "bush medicine" of the Caribbean is an oral tradition passing recipes for both home cooking and health and beauty concoctions down from generation to generation. India has extensively researched these remedies and includes more than twenty essential recipes that can be simply made in your own home. India balances this with a true understanding of what busy western women want. As a mother of three and a woman who flies all over the globe herself, India is no stranger to stress or pollution and still looks fantastic. This is also the first book to present beauty ideas for both black and white women.

There are many areas of life in which you are a master - brilliant, confident, assured. But when it comes to dressing well and comporting yourself with style, what you don't know could fill a book. This is the book. It is an amusing and pleasureable book. It might even yield a quote or two for cocktail parties. It is arranged as simple nuggets of truth, lore, exhortation and caution which respond, talk to and feed off each other. The book does not pretend to comprise the be-all and end-all in matter of sartorial. Rather it offers basic guidelines, rules of the road; some of which may even been broken, so long as you know what your doing. Which you don't. Though you will. The perfect gift for the sartorially- challenged man in your life, even if that man is yourself.
A witty, wise and truthful beauty handbook for real women on what works in real life from Sali Hughes, beloved journalist and broadcaster. `Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together' Elizabeth Taylor Beauty books. Exquisite coffee-table affairs featuring improbably beautiful models with wholly-unachievable-to-most women looks, product review-heavy volumes which become almost instantly outdated, or tracts of holistic mumbo jumbo, like how to make an unproven face pack from organic molasses and rough-hewn porridge oats. Not anymore. In Pretty Honest, Sali Hughes draws on over 20 years of wisdom, advice and expertise to show real women how to make the most of makeup's physically and emotionally transformative powers. Covering everything from teenage skin to mature beauty, botox to bridal make-up, sickness to good health, it's a work that is part instruction manual, part love letter to makeup - in a writing style that combines beauty editor, feminist and painfully funny best friend.

With the current movement for extreme and individualistic beauty, nail art is a way to make your own personal statement as well as turn your nails into the hottest fashion accessories around. In The Nail Art Sourcebook, you will find hundreds of ideas for designs using a full range of effects, all of which you can do yourself or take to a nail technician to execute professionally.

A nail art gallery of over 500 designs, organized thematically, follows, with themes that vary from graphic stripes, chevrons and dots to floral and nature motifs, as well as tribal patterns and animal prints. Not only is nail art a great way to enhance your look for a special occasion or make a fashion statement, it's a fulfilling way to explore your creative potential.
'Did you know that the way you treat your feet today could very easily have an effect on the sort of woman you will be in ten or fifteen years from now?' Throughout the 1950s, Girl picture-strips "Charm School" and "Concerning You" offered firm guidance to young girls on how to make the best of themselves. Strict footcare regimes, daily manicures, sensible shoe shopping ('if bewildered by a wide choice of styles, always choose the plainest'), and good grooming were all instilled into Girl readers beginning to take an interest in their appearance, before any bad habits had a chance to set in. And for the young woman with ambitions beyond the home, the paper ran a careers advice picture strip, 'I Want To Be...', which each week would feature a suitable calling such as nurse, nanny, typist, receptionist, air hostess or riding teacher. This book gathers together the best of those strips for a complete tutorial in making the most of your skills and natural assets. For former Girl readers who didn't care for their feet perhaps this will be a painful reminder of where it all went wrong, but those who did can bask in the good sense offered by their favourite weekly paper all those years ago. And everybody else can enjoy the comedy.
