my make-up dreams, the dressing table is pretty empty — minimal, even. There are only four or five make-up products, chosen for their sublime excellence. There is no need to faff. Everything is easy.

They’re the equivalent of the perfect jeans and the perfect T-shirt, or the perfect done-but-undone blow-dry. They’re grown-up.
