Sunday 4am. Fabric. You’re up on a podium in the main room, dancing
deliriously with 1,000 up-for-it fellow clubbers. Sasha’s belting out a
sublime trance set and you’re living for the moment, bombarded by the
bass while lasers bounce off the sequins on your frock and sparkle on
the glitter on your cheekbones. Caught up in clubbing camaraderie, you
exchange smiles with the shiny, happy people that surround you. Riding
high on another wave of euphoria, you’re sexy, sensational and having
the time of your life ...
Monday 8am. The bathroom mirror confirms the bad news that you look as
bad as you feel. The sallowness of your complexion emphasises the black
circles under your eyes. How can you appear slick at this afternoon’s
presentation to Mr Seriously Big Client?
Relax. Help is at hand in the form of Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche
Elegantly packaged in a gold-plated pen, it diffuses just the right
amount of colour with one click of the cap. Neither a foundation nor a
concealer, the light emulsion is easily applied with its built-in brush.
The veil of colour glides over the skin and blends easily, bringing
vitality and radiance to your tired face. With this essential tool in
your makeup bag, Saturday’s queen of the night can also be Monday’s dish
of the day.
