I just got my March 2015 issue of Allure magazine, and was reading an article called “The Influencers”. The first person profiled was Charlotte Tilbury, makeup artist of the moment. I enjoyed her story but was a bit put off by her “never being seen without makeup” comments.
I totally get that, as I look like a corpse without makeup, but I’m sure as hell not going to wear it to bed. She said “I never go without makeup-ever”. And that “I only take it off at night when the bathroom door is locked. Then I put it right back on and sleep in it.”
What!!?!?!?!? I’ve been reading Allure for years, and really haven’t come across such a stupid statement. You never want to wear your makeup to bed, especially not eye makeup. That is the quickest way to get an eye infection.
My older (dumber) sister slept in her makeup for years. I would always get after her about it. She was too lazy to wash her face, and thought that “well my mom has great skin, so I will too”. Guess what dumbass sister, your skin looks like crap now and you permanently jacked up your eyes. My sister lives in a different state, so I didn’t see her real often. She finally admitted some years ago that her tear ducts were permanently damaged and she had to use some sort of silicone inserts in her eyes. Yes, it was caused by years of sleeping in her mascara.
Charlotte is no spring chicken so she should know better. I hope impressionable young woman don’t take her “never go without makeup” to heart.
