A photographer friend of mine – I suppose his eyes are trained to look for imperfection – always used to look at me funny and ask, “Why have you got smoky eye make-up underneath your eye or dark glitter on your cheeks?” The answer was always because I put my make-up on in a taxi or I did a whole face in 90 seconds, or I’m just not very good at putting on make-up.

The first time I wore myface.cosmetics everything went on as if I was photoshopping myself. The foundation like cashmere just wrapped around me. The special Bling Tone eye shadow swooped on. Everything blended into seamlessness because everything is already matched out for you. Colours pre-selected for skin tone, fair, medium, and medium/dark. The eye palettes come with three colours. My favourite one is Band Of Gold – rose gold for the lid, burnished gold for the crease, and pale gold for the highlight. But the range is enormous, with lovely mauves and greens. The lipsticks are also fantastic; long lasting and lovely colours that are both classic and on trend. The vintage pink is a favourite of Penelope Cruz’s.

The real test was Mark Anderson, the photographer, noticed. “Mm,” he said, “You’ve been listening to me.” No, in fact I had been listening to Charlotte Tilbury, one of the most influential make-up artists in the world, whose client list includes Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Penelope Cruz.When I met her she was exuberant and proud. “The foundation and the eye formula took five years to create.” She worked with John Frieda and his partner Gail Federici, who added marketing and retail expertise to her canny eye. “You can put it on in a taxi. You can put it on with a finger. Everything is packaged really slim and compact so it can fit in your handbag. That’s what it’s designed for. Women who are busy.”
