She’s been described as one of the most powerful women in beauty, and yes, she is, indeed, visiting Norwich to celebrate her paperback publication of Pretty Iconic! Not only will Britain’s most trusted beauty writer, Sali Hughes be in Norwich, she will also be in conversation with make up artist and one half of beauty bloggers Pixiwoo Sam Chapman!
Pretty Iconic has been described as a ‘beauty mixtape’ by Sali, taking readers on a tour through history recalling the most influential and memorable beauty products made in recent times, with her expert commentary acting as the most informative of guides to separate the fact from the fad.
Sali considers which much-hyped beauty buys are worth the buzz and who they are best suited for, from treasured classics such as Chanel No 5, to life-changers such as Babyliss Big Hair, and the more recent releases from Charlotte Tilbury, Sunday Riley and others that are shaping the beauty industry today.
A copy of Pretty Iconic (RRP £16.99) is included in the ticket price with a glass of wine🍷. Ticket price is £20 plus £1.50 booking fee.
Please arrive at 19:00 for 19:15 start via the middle door in Exchange Street – opposite Capt Americas, the event is in The Pantry on Floor 3
19:15 – 20:15 In conversation with Sali Hughes and Sam Chapman, inc Q&A

I mentioned this on an email a few months ago, and Sali coming gives me a reason to bring it up again! If you have unwanted beauty products and toiletries, Sali and Jo Jones set up Beauty Bank back in February to support those in crisis - find out more here...
"So, how can you get involved? Well, all those dinky hotel toiletries you hurriedly sweep up before check-out now have a purpose. You can chuck an extra box of tampons or towels in your Superdrug basket, or click for two tubes of toothpaste instead of one before checking out your online shopping cart. You can ask yourself if you’re ever really likely to use the hand soaps your aunt bought you for Christmas, or whether six shampoo bottles is an entirely wise use of bathroom space. As long as it’s unopened and going spare, we want it, because someone desperately needs it. When you’ve gathered together a decent stash and removed any restricted solvents (perfume and nail polish), pack it all into a box and kindly write “Beauty Banks” on every side of it, then post here:

If you’d like to swerve the post office and cut out the middleman (and the P&P charges), you can buy us anything from our Easho wish list here and get it sent direct to us, no faff, no flannel. Actually, maybe flannel. We’ll have those, too."
