Episode 50: Truth and Beauty Special with Sali Hughes
What's the one thing you can do that will make your skin look better in one week? Should you tell a stranger if her make-up is wonky? And what is primer, anyway? Columnist Sali Hughes answers all these questions and more in our bumper 50th episode.
We discuss the importance of honesty and who we love most out of Madonna, Kylie and Olivia Colman. Sali reveals the truth behind no make-up selfies and where she stands on the issue of photo retouching.
Then it's time for some top beauty tips, including advice on the best foundations, looking good as a new mum and whether it's OK to buy your moisturiser at Lidl. We chat about our own beauty disasters and find out what Poo Drops are.
Helen excels herself with two brand new games, Lipstick or Dipstick? and Feminist Feast. We round off with a hat trick of fantastic Scummy Mummy Confessions from Sali.
Her brilliant book, Pretty Honest, is out now. Sali writes regular columns for The Guardian and The Pool, as well as running SaliHughesBeauty.com. She's on Twitter - @salihughes.
