Trinny Woodall wouldn’t expect to be nominated as a role model for grooming restraint, but she certainly gets my vote for best portable make-up kit of the summer.
Hot days and healthy glows are the perfect catalyst for embracing a more natural look. No one wants to resemble Dirk Bogarde in Death in Venice; with the rouge melting in the summer heat and trickling down your ravaged face!
Once I’m sun-kissed enough to banish the faintly ‘green’ pallor of winter it’s time to go back to basics. Trinny’s stackable pods are brilliantly conceived; the Starter Stack features an eye shadow, a lip gloss, a concealer and a blusher, all perfectly matched to your complexion and eye and hair colour.
This seems to me the ultimate in practicality and portability, which are not two words normally associated with glamour!
