Sadly, I have no choice. I was not blessed with luxuriant, Audrey Hepburn-style eyebrows. Mine have always been sparse, so I have to choose my eyebrow heroines with this in mind. I rarely go to such extremes as shown here, but I do have to tame the few stragglers and pencil them in a bit. It’s a bit strange to have such thick dark hair on your head, then have the eyebrows of a mousey-person. Sigh.
I must confess that Lynsey De Paul never really registered with me when I was younger, mainly because her songs didn’t particularly appeal to me at that point and I had only seen her presenting some dreadful programme on cable tv. But more recently, I discovered some pictures and utterly fell in love with her style and her styling. She wore Ossie frocks, floppy hats, platform boots, feathers and chiffon. Her hair was the very perfect sheet of Timotei-advert Seventies elegance (much as I may love her, I can’t really get on board with the Suzi Quatro-style feathered haircuts). And her make-up was also exactly what I was aspiring to achieve. She even went out with a Beatle. Although since Ringo is in the doghouse at the moment, I’m not necessarily as jealous as maybe I would once have been.
