Went to see the Devil Wears Prada last night and found it to be a hugely enjoyable film set in the bitchy back biting world of high fashion in New York. Just leave your critical faculties at home and enjoy the clothes! A bit like a Working Girl for the noughties, but without the shoulder pads and big hairdos.
The plot is predictable. Ordinary girl Andrea finds herself unexpectedly working in a coveted job for the nasty, ruthless, queen of fashion, Miranda (Meryl Streep), the editor of a high fashion magazine. A magical transformation occurs - she is effortlessly made over into a high fashion babe. And so on.
The part of the film I like best was - wait for it - the makeup! Andrea is a pale skinned beauty, with not a trace of fake tan in sight, natural lips and striking eye makeup. Liquid liner is big in this film. Everyone wears it.
Liquid eyeliner has always been a big big favourite of mine for many years. In fact I would choose it as my desert island makeup essential, eschewing all others. If youâ€™ve never used it before give it a try - for a big night out it can make you feel instantly glam.
I love Lancome Artliner and Ruby and Millie liquid eyeliner also comes highly recommended.
