I have never really had the talent for making my eyes look wonderfully exotic – those gorgeous upswept liners that make the eyes grow wide and always questioning.  Rather like Endora in Bewitched.  I have very poor eyesight at the best of times and without them on, whilst putting my own make up on, if I can see some darkish shape around each eye, then that’s good enough.   On go the day specs and I then get a cotton bud dipped in a little eyewash – that gets carefully applied under the lower lashes and above the eyelid below the brow – as inevitably some of the earlier attempt will have stray or splashed up!  I only use eye make up.  I have never worn face make up – I like to pretend I’m an eternal teenager, and so far it seems to be working!  Good exercise to boost the blood circulation also helps.  Oh, as does drinking a lot of plain water!
