Back Chat Beauty

What do you get when you combine a make up artist and a beauty and style director? You get a beauty guide for real life. Back Chat Beauty is for anyone who wants to know the secrets to always looking fresh-faced with minimal effort. Beauty and Style Director at Buro and formerly of ELLE magazine, Sophie Beresiner, and makeup artist and podcast host, Lisa Potter-Dixon, join forces to share their knowledge of skincare products and makeup brands, offering advice for every issue.

This book just doesn’t cover the basics of how to combat the struggles of knowing how to pick the right products to nail your base or map your brows and even mastering the best eye looks. No, this book sees you through everyday problems and struggles. With chapters that cover being caught in the rain (not in the romantic enjoying piña coladas kind of way) to dealing with crying.

This book goes way past just helping with beauty, it gives you tips, Sophie and Lisa’s advice and stories will also help you win at REAL LIFE. Not what you see in magazines, on TV or even on Instagram, it’s about the good times, the good-time disruptors and getting it right in and out of the office! They’ve shared their own stories from their real lives to create what they think is genuinely the most useful book for everyone.
