Face Value

This issue’s beauty feature was inspired entirely by my gorgeous niece, who recently came for a sleepover. With the face of an angel and skin like silk, she arrived with a bag brimming with skincare and makeup goodies, and the promise of the perfect pamper night in and a bright-eyed morning after.

ICONIC TRIPLE THREAT MASCARA £22
