That is what it says on my makeup bag which was a present from a friend, and I mean it.
I concentrate on my eyes, because they were the inspiration behind a very famous television character, Lady Penelope. You would think I would shout it from the rooftops but when you are constantly told something by your mother when growing you tend to take it for granted.
As I get older, I do realise the significance of it, and as Sylvia Anderson (mum) was a pioneer of women in television and was indeed the creator and visionary for the iconic female Secret Agent, I am beginning to appreciate the accolade and share it around.
The face and bone structure of the puppet was based on my mother, but the shape and colour of the eyes were influenced by mine as a child.
Also, as Dr Aamar Khan, skin and cosmetic guru of Harley Street Skin Clinic said, my eyes are my ‘Centrepiece’. How lovely to hear that from such an expert, and of course I must now emphasise them even more.
It is always important to mois
I begin with a light moisturising foundation Mac Mineralize Moisture Spf15 Foundation which I apply all over my face and neck, including the eyes.
A dusky vintage rose pink. Takes me back when I used to raid my grandmother’s dressing table, and try on her rouge. It has a similar scent too, delicious.
Then I use Benefit, they’re Real! Big sexy eye kit with their smoky range of colours from beyond nude to bombshell brown.
Rimmel exaggerate eyeliner is my absolute fave. You may think I have downgraded from my more exclusive options, but believe me this is smooth and slick and stays on for hours.
Dr Huuschka Volume Mascara is super creamy and thick and you really don’t need false eyelashes if you apply two or three times, allowing the mascara to dry in between applications.
If you are feeling sexy and dangerous, then La Voix is a great luscious red lipstick, and can be obtained from the website of the same name. I tend to wear it at night but tone down my look during the day with a paler tone, using Clinique, chubby stick – 02 whole lotta honey.
