You’d think years in the beauty industry might have taught me something. Yesterday, after yet another haul of dusty, fiddly pots of mineral make up arrived on my doorstep, I spoke to a make up artist friend, bemoaning the fact that I just can’t make minerals or loose sparkles work. Somehow the dust always ends up sprinkled all over my face – and the pigment is so high that even a sweep with a fluffly brush ends in little coloured stripes on my cheeks. Her solution? Do my eyes first before foundation and blush, and always use an eye primer so the colour has something to adhere to. How simple is that?
