Now I’m not for one minute suggesting there isn’t a whole lot of other make-up going on in this ‘natural’ looking Sunday FOTD, but the titular point is really key: a damn good mascara makes eyes pop in no time. Everything else that’s happening on my face, bar the touch of modest colour courtesy of the Max Factor coral balm to lift this out of dullsville, is surplus to requirements – a little housekeeping in the form of skin perfecting, light bronzing and shading of eyes is enough to provide the perfect canvas for a good lashing of eye-opening mascara.
Two notes: 1) I almost can’t believe how very much I like this cheapie Rimmel concealer. Seriously: buy it. 2) The Dior Airflash foundation, which I fully intend on reviewing properly in a post to follow, is brilliant, but the nozzle dispensing the product covers too large a surface and I therefore suggest you spritz into your hand and then rub on the face. Using this method, it’s spectacular, covering all manner of sins while looking/feeling as if it isn’t there.
