Okay – my stress levels are getting silly. Are yours? If you’re a student (or a person with three jobs, like me), you’ll understand the horror of The Deadline. All that lovely free time you envisaged, drifting away as you stare sadly at a blank Word document. Suddenly you’re aware that you maybe need a snack, and then you’ll wash your hair or just read a bit of a magazine, and suddenly it’s half past ten, you’ve got work the next morning and you’ve done… absolutely nothing.

I’ll be honest here. I wear makeup every single day. I think it’s fun – the experience of slapping stuff on your face and seeing how pretty you look at the end of it all. I was particularly pleased with how my makeup came out today, so I put some loud music on and had a little selfie session (come on, admit it, you do it too) to show off my everyday makeup.
