I was watching Dawn Porter on BBC3 last night, a repeat of 'Dawn Gets Naked', in each episode Dawn tries out something new & daring for us all to watch & gasp either in delight or horror (for those of you who saw 'Dawn Get's a Baby!!).
Anyway this one was all about how women ultimately feel about being Naked as well as the over all perception they have of what is beautiful & how their idea of perfection has been peverted by all the marketing whizz of the beauty industry - 'We are aspiring to something that simply does not exist!'
Take a look at the clip below, Dawn has a make-over at a top London photography studio, after her full hair & make-up over-haul they digitally enhance or 'airbrush' her look, from elongating her neck, to fuller lips & even swapping over her eyes (!!!), she is transformed into the false perfection we all gaze at in our magazines....just like that!!!!!

Spring make-up is all about natural flushed beauty, paying most attention to the cheeks & lips. Soft pink lips with a flash of colour on the cheeks is all you need to glow this season, match it up with the flower power craze that is hitting the high streets right now & you're bang on trend!!!!
Get The look -
Use a light base, try Stila's Tinted Moisturiser from yesterday's post.
Take a nude shadow across the whole lid & a brown pencil on the lash lines to create a softly defined eye
Use a cheek & lip stain for the cheeks & lips, it creates a natural flushed look.
Best tip, is to dab a tiny amount on your hand with your finger tips & start at the apple of your cheeks & work up, keep most of the colour intensity on the 'apple' area to keep it looking soft & youthful.
Again dab the stain on with your fingertips for the lips, don't use a lip pencil with this style as it will look over-done.
Try out Superdrug's 'Pussy Cat Lip & Cheek Stain', good enough to rival Benefit's classic & at £4.99 it's a steal!!!!!
