I had the good fortune – as part of my job – to spend a good part of a working day having my make up applied by the professionals. The artists that look at your face afresh and apply colour and contour as they see fit.
I visited Estee Lauder, bareminerals and Charlotte Tilbury – all very different brands with USP’s of note- a Victoria Beckham collection, mineral make up only and a choice of 10 unique looks – respectively among them .
Lauder bestowed a cat flick feline eye and a pop of bright red lippie, bareminerals a natural looking face with a superior foundation and Charlotte Tilbury gave me the Rock Chick look she is famed for (Kate Moss is a regular client) with a perfect smokey eye and pale lip (fave product alert: Kim K lipstick!). The shall try and recreate these at home because I bought the lot!
The whole experience definitely gives you a new perspective and the fabulous feeling that you are never too long in the tooth to transform. And good make up definitely bestows confidence. Hurrah for that.
