Of all the animals of prey, man is the only sociable one.
Every one of us preys upon his neighbour, and yet we herd together.

Gordon Brown's Beauty Tips

Forget the Beauty pages of Vogue, throw away your copy of Cosmo – we can bring you glamour secrets right from the top!

In the recent Government tradition of leaving important documents around in public, a vital state secret has emerged – how the PM does his make-up.
Yes, the exact techniques used for the fresh-faced natural look modelled in his recent webcast have been revealed to the world:
1. Transparent Brush. Foam all over.
2. Small pot under eyes, dimple, creases, blend in.
3. Clinique. Super balanced make-up. All over again, like painting a wall, and ears. Shut eyes over lids then with make-up pad smooth over liquid.
4. Powder (dark brush) terracotta Guerlain, all over.

And so all the flaws are disguised under an elaborate facade. Sometimes a metaphor is just too apt.
