Applying make-up is an intimate event with an exclusive guest list. It’s just you, your products and the reflection in the mirror.
Your reflection doesn’t gossip about the coffee-stained oversized top or rotten dressing gown you choose to wear to the event. It doesn’t tell anyone you didn’t even bother to get dressed after the shower and instead sit there in a towel with one hand to keep the towel up (because you have enough class to not flash to the mirror) and the other trying to blend.
It’s almost the most intimate event in the world. That’s not to discredit the times that you make effort to be a little less gross. But most times you think fuck it, the end result will never tell of my current state.
A revelation for me was discovering that keeping the glam energy of a finished full face during application is revolutionary. Taking a minute to put on something a little classier than your go-to rotten outfit – creating fancy foundations to do your make-up on – changes everything.
And therefore, I suggest turning up your getting-ready game with a bralette. Bralettes are as fancy as they are comfortable, making them the perfect piece to get glam in.
Fancy dressing while doing make-up creates grounds for you to start feeling good before the glam has even begun. It means you look and feel good throughout the process and sets the tone for you to feel confident during the night/day. Feeling fancy means feeling confident – its simple science.
The Best Bralettes
And of course, it has to be Boux Avenue for your bralette fix. Giving you luxe lace, delicate silk and classic satin, their range is unparalleled. My personal fav is the Tori lace plunge bra. Its comfortable, classy and colourful. I no longer wear a freshly fake-tan soaked XXL t-shirt when applying make-up. I wear a bralette and some loose joggers. I always worried about fallout product on my bottoms but there’s a simple solution to this – plain black joggers from PLT or ASOS. £20 and worth every second of getting into glam mode.
