Finding eyeliners that don’t smudge into dirty little pockets in the creases under your eyes is virtually impossible. Liners tend to be either too soft and smudgy, or too hard and hopelessly difficult to drag across the most delicate skin on your face. However, Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics have found the fine line (ahem) of giving good colour without smudges. The three shades are universally flattering; Chestnut, Black or (my favourite) Slate, a steely grey with tones of navy. While I am still unsure about mineral foundations – which personally I find both drying and deadening on the complexion, this new-to- the-UK brand’s best seller is Natural Mineral Foundation, which has had rave reviews in the states, where it has gained a celebrity following. I’ll let you know if this is ‘the one’!
