Honestly, I don’t think I could have got through this week without Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray, £19, which fixes make-up so it does not move from your face till you have to fight it off with your cleanser at night. Long days and evening events with no time to get home and change means that make-up has to last, and it certainly does with this spray! The only thing I would say about it is that I can’t use it too often otherwise my skin gets a little bit congested; in fact, I’m at that point now because I’ve used it five days in a row, but without it I’d have had to keep on touching up in various loos (preference is Jaeger on Regent Street; a very posh stop with good mirrors!).
The other product that has been brilliant is Kerastase Masque Age Recharge which has been a long time favourite that got forgotten for a while. It just puts your hair back into great condition with the minimum of fuss, and gives it that silky, separated feel that you can usually only get from the hairdresser. It’s expensive at £20 or so but you don’t really need much so it’s a good investment for horrible hair day rescue!
