The other day B’s neurologist asked me how I’m coping. He said that along the road to B’s recovery, if I need a treat or a girl’s night out then by god I should have it (perhaps not verbatim but he said words to that effect).
With that in mind I went to have my makeup done by one of the Laura Mercier girls at House of Fraser yesterday. I’ve been using the same makeup for years and could probably do with a change, and a bit more help to hide the evidence of my advancing years.
She applied ‘the works’ – primer, moisture supreme foundation, secret camouflage, secret concealer, invisible loose setting powder and secret brightening powder, all of which I duly purchased.
She assured me that these products will provide a ‘soft focus’ effect. This was music to my ears as it’s the look I’ve been trying to achieve my whole life.
I now expect that next week, at B’s bedside, I will be a dead ringer for Taylor from The Bold and The Beautiful. I’ll also spend a lot of time standing at the window with my back to the room and my arms folded.
