Sarah Morgan meets Kat Von D - Sali Hughes Beauty — Sarah Morgan meets artist and beauty entrepreneur Kat Von D to talk tattoos, shoes, mohawks and make-up. Kat's make-up line launches in the UK on 13th September 2016 exclusively at, and in store at Debenhams Oxford Street from 5th

Beauty: the best new foundations for autumn — While you may well be thinking summer has scarcely even begun, beauty has already moved on to autumn and launched a load of foundations to mark the new season. The reasoning is that women won't stomach a full base in the heat and humidity (chance would be a fine thing), but by September are ready for something more substantial than tinted moisturiser or CC cream.

Beauty: the best of Victoria Beckham’s Estée Lauder makeup line — Few beauty launches have been as carefully and strictly orchestrated as Victoria Beckham's limited-edition makeup line for Estée Lauder. Before the unveiling, I had to sign two legally binding agreements not to share with a soul what lay behind the specially blacked-out windows at Beckham's Mayfair boutique.

News & Views - Women are vilified first for getting older. And then for gettingplastic surgery — There's a meme going around social media featuring quotes and footage of supermodel Carmen Dell'Orefice, who turned 85 this summer. The meme (not created by Dell'Orefice herself) proclaims that the white-haired senior proves beauty is ageless. The comments, not so much.

Beauty: the best autumn perfumes — I can think of few products as eagerly anticipated as Scent Of A Dream (£49), Charlotte Tilbury's debut perfume, and yet I'm not sure anyone predicted how it turned out. I'll admit I was expecting some heady, ripe, buxom oriental power scent but what I got is a wearable floral-chypre that's so much more to my taste.

Sali Hughes and Caitlin Moran talk #traingate, breadwinning and being naked in front of your children — Sali Hughes presents her Soho Radio show with guest host Caitlin Moran and this month's guests, Jo Elvin, editor of Glamour Magazine, and Terri White, editor-in-chief of EMPIRE magazine

Homes are often happiest when women are the main breadwinners — We've all seen the films, the soap operas and celebrity tabloid muckraking. Successful woman earns more than male spouse, man's masculinity is threatened, man resents woman, man's loved ones believe him to be pussy-whipped, man's pride is dented, couple argues, will surely split unless successful woman remembers who wears the trousers and skulks away from centre stage.

Beauty: new products for dehydrated skin — Neutrogena's reluctance to launch their peerless anti-ageing skincare in the UK remains one of the great missed opportunities in beauty. I don't know why they think us insufficiently sophisticated to make a success of them, nor why they presume we'd rather pay £80-odd for a retinol serum of similar quality and concentration to their £20 job, but I believe very strongly they're wrong.

The C-word, and why it’s the Queen of Swears — The most shocking and most powerful of insults, C-word should be occasionally deployed for maximum effect, says Sali Hughes

Beauty: the best new mascaras — Clinique's new Lash Power Flutter-to-Full (£20, exclusive to Boots until September) screams of gimmickry, but it turns out, is rather stupendous. The special tube has three click-in positions: a natural look; something a little more dramatic; and drag queen.
