And who better than Maudie James, demonstrating here, exactly how she shapes and colours her face:
1 Starting with shining clean skin (thanks to Pond’s Cold Cream), she dabs on Mary Quant’s Skin Drink and blends it in.
2 Max Factor’s Nouveau Beige Pan Stick goes on with a small damp sponge giving a smooth ‘finish, covering tiny blemishes.
3 Several coats of Boots No 7 Black Block Mascara intensifies but does not cake upper and lower lashes.
4 Blackened lashes are curved to sweep up and out with eyelash curlers (45p from Boots).
5 Each eyelash is separated to look natural.
6 Eyelids coloured with Caran d’Ache purple pencils (Nos 110 and 120) blended up to the brows.
7 Short feathery lines drawn with Caran d’Ache pencil (No 80) outline the cheekbones.
8 And are then blended in towards the nose to make a soft rose-pink blush.
9 Caran d’Ache pencil (No 80) outlines then fills the lips with colour.
10 Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream glossed over lips with a brush—for protection and shine.
11 Biba’s Mascara Brush neatens the eyebrows.
12 The look: face dusted with Boots No 7 Nearly Natural compact Powder; hair: shining with Wella’s Shampoo and Lemon Creme Rinse.
