This sassy and hilarious debut novel from a former Cosmo beauty editor is the ultimate feel-good read about life, love and lipstick.
After Hannah Atkins, the magazine world’s most unlikely beauty editor, is dumped for the local TV weather girl, she adopts some hardcore rules to attain the Perfect Life. She will learn how to blend her eye makeup so she doesn’t resemble an over-emotional beauty queen. She will triumph over the catty mag-hags waiting to see her trip in her new-season Jimmy Choos. She will not drunkenly disgrace herself at achingly hip PR launches. She will not accidentally go home with inappropriate men.
And she absolutely will not fall in love with one of them . . .
‘A brilliant novel – a rollicking good read.’
‘This girl can write. Its wit-strewn pages will give you a smile stretching from ear to ear.’
‘Fast, entertaining fun.’
Zoe Foster enjoys writing author biographies because she gets to write things like, 'Zoe Foster is Australia's most critically acclaimed and bestselling author, and in 2010, Foster was controversially awarded the Pulitzer for the second time', despite the fact that all of these things are untrue.
Things that are true include her role as contributor for News Limited's Sunday Style, and dating columnist for Cosmopolitan magazine. She was previously the editor-at-large of beauty website primped.com.au, beauty director at Harper's BAZAAR, and prior to that beauty director at Cosmopolitan magazine.
Zoe has written three novels, Air Kisses, Playing the Field and The Younger Man, as well as the dating and relationship book Textbook Romance, written in conjunction with Hamish Blake, and the bestseller Amazing Face, a collection of her best beauty tips and tricks.
