They are tapered to give you a super full yet fluttery look combining three styles into one lash set, with a super structured lash band too. The lashes are proving popular already – Cardi B wore them herself to the 2018 Mat Gala! Buy them in Superdrug stores nationwide or online at superdrug.com
I also took a trip to search out a new foundation. Souring the beauty counters of Debenhams and John Lewis to find a matte or semi-matte finish and a shade that doesn’t take fair skin to orange tinged levels as it really doesn’t look good on most let alone a ginger! I finally found a really helpful counter assistant who took her time to really match my skin, and introduced me to Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Liquid Foundation, £35. The coverage is seamless and can be built up depending on your preferred coverage. I really love the fact that I can wear this lighter as well as full coverage – taking my look from day-to-night without changing product. (Plus you don’t need a primer either!)
