Uh oh – It’s celeb make up maven Charlotte Tilbury taking on Oscar winning actress Helen Mirren in that age-old debate: should you wear make up or not?
Dame Helen says that we’ve reached saturation point in our selfie obsessed era and it’s time to take a stand – release the pressure on women to look perfect and embrace the “real”. Charlotte Tilbury says make up is an empowering tool in the feminine arsenal so why wouldn’t you use it?
I think it’s simply a matter of personal preference.I am a beauty lover – I adore how eye shadow, liner and mascara makes my eyes look bigger and more defined, and a swipe of red lipstick adds drama to my features. I always wear a full face for a day at work, but draw the line (pun intended) at full slap to take the dog for a walk.
Every man I know says they prefer women with that no-artifice, make-up less Sunday morning face, but they still fancy Jennifer Lopez (never knowingly bare faced) – and not natural Alicia Keys – don’t they?
