An irreverent memoir filled with fabulous advice, this is a celebration of a life spent in the pursuit of beauty.

One of Australia’s most accomplished beauty journalists, Stephanie Darling has travelled the world interviewing celebrities, trialing new treatments and testing the hottest designer products. From landing her dream job at Vogue, to the axing of Madison and why she finally decided to get that nose job, Stephanie reveals all in this insider’s look at the beauty industry.
Featuring skin care and makeup for all ages, expert beauty tips from the best in the business and Stephanie’s ultimate list of must-haves, Secrets of a Beauty Queen is a behind-the-scenes peek at the exotic – and sometimes outlandish – world of beauty and luxury magazines.
