I put lipstick on in the same way as one of my great-grandmothers. I know this to be true because we wear lipsticks down in the same way – to a long, flat point with a groove on either side. The first time my mum noticed this, she looked as though she’d seen a ghost. I’ve never seen it anywhere else.
Sometimes beauty isn’t about looks. My favourite everyday lipstick is a Chanel one called ‘Egerie’. You can hardly even see it’s there, which is actually good because you can put it on in the back of a cab, or on a moving train, without making a mess. It doesn’t matter what you can see, because the point is that it makes me feel really Chanel.
