What Pretty Girls Are Made Of

Lindsay Jill Roth

In the make-up world, life and love are never cruelty-free... After living in New York City for four years and reaching a dead end on her acting career, Alison Kraft needs a new role—time for a career change. When she reads about the world-famous Sally Steele Cosmetics studio, Alison quickly swoops in to make a good impression and lands a job as an assistant to the diva herself. Surrounded by fantastic new hues of blushes, eye shadows, and glosses, Alison loves her new job and the new swag. But how long before the pretty face cracks for good?

  1. I loved this episode. I always feel best when I have killer eye make up. It just makes my day a thousand times better. I feel fierce and capable of taking on the world. And I have a slightly ridiculous collection of eyeshadow. 😛

    You gals look fabulous!

  3. Pretty to me is simply being comfortable in your own skin.

  4. After my workout three times a week I feel pretty great. Plus whenever I wear lipstick or tinted lip balm, it elevates my day.
