Sometimes I stay up late into the night surfing the internet. My almost famous connection (give it time – also, buy her book) put up a blog post about make-up wherein she said “I’ve just spent about 45 minutes watching make-up videos by Lisa Eldridge”. “Ha,” I thought to myself “well I might as well have a quick look at this before I go to bed as there is no way I would spend 45 minutes looking at a make-up video.” Bear in mind that I last bought something for my make-up bag in the 1990s. It’s not that I don’t wear make-up, it’s just that I take my sister’s free gifts from her amazingly extensive collection. But yet, I found Ms. Eldridge strangely compelling and 45 minutes later (at 3.45 am, alas), I finally tore myself away from her advice and found myself contemplating my first make up purchase since 1995.
It’s going to be a clinique airbrush; I thought you would like to know.
Ooh, the concealer? That does look good. Though I refuse to believe that this is your first purchase since 1995 – you have nice things.
Make-up videos are strangely addictive. I am having a free Laura Mercier make-over today, very excited!
I’ve read the book: she is SO going to be famous!
Meanwhile, my make-up collection is ancient and the size of two matchboxes but also I find Elridge weirdly compelling.
N, Helen, has nice things – I get her spares.
Charlotte, v. v. good re book. That’s what we like to hear!
Charlotte, you are too too kind! I wish … Waffle, I have an unwanted DiorShow mascara which I will gift to you in Dublin, if you would like it.
Oooh, yes please, stuff…
