The teen beauty drama

Miss T’s show time make up kit

Sometimes you have to admit that you were wrong and on Friday night I had to hold my hands up and tell Miss T that she was right and I was way off!

You see on the hottest weekend of the year Miss T was about to perform in her dance school’s show at the local theatre, and as you can imagine what make up she took into the dressing room, was a big deal.

So, on Friday night at, oh about 6pm when most shops were CLOSED (why do teens do that?) Miss T informed that she needed a face powder and the only one she wanted was the MUA one that all her friends had.

That told me. Of course, being curious to see what the big deal was with the latest teen must-have, I took her to buy the ‘in’ beauty product and guess what? It was £1.

I know you’re all thinking what I said: ‘It must be rubbish for a quid.’

Do you know what, I have been totally proved wrong, the MUA Pressed Powder is amazing, for £1. It was the perfect colour for Miss T, it looked natural and it kept Miss T shine free on the stage.

Hands up, I was wrong and it’s taught me that I need to take note of the more affordable make up ranges out there. And I intend to.

In case you’re interested here’s what was in Miss T’s show time make up bag:

MUA Pressed Powder, £1

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Liner, £3.99

Max Factor Clump Defy Volumising Mascara, £10.99
