Every once in a while, a girl needs a change. I was bored bored bored of my makeup. I was all out of inspiration. I looked at myself in the mirror and just thought: drab.

In the past I think I wore too much makeup, and in a bid to look more subtle and muted I seemed to have taken all the colour out of my face.
So I dragged myself off to the makeup heaven that is Sephora on the Champs Elysees. Is there anything they don't have? I found a fabulous consultant who made me over with a fresh, natural look. I took these photos quite a few hours after, so the fabulous lipgloss is no longer there etc.
Honestly, the consultant gave me lashes I didn't know I had, and she showed me the subtlest way to apply eyeliner with a brush. All of the products (Nars) would have cost the earth, but I did treat myself to a few: an eyeliner brush and powder khol, mascara, eyeshadow and blush. It is so much fun being a girl! Here are two (not very good) pictures! They don't convey too much, and I forgot to take my glasses off, but they give an overall idea. Let's see if I'll be able to do it myself tomorrow....
