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!
