Lovely Le Métier at Liberty

It isn’t every day that a luxury make-up line lands fully-formed on our shores. But Le Métier de Beauté is just that: a complete range (created in California) with sumptuous colours, clever ideas (we especially love the Kaleidoscope Lip Kit lip gloss stack – think of it as the multi-storey car park of glosses – and the nail polishes, in dinky sizes just right for anyone with Beauty Attention Deficit Disorder, who gets bored with shades fast. Er, like us.). Prices are sort of up there with the likes of Giorgio Armani – and actually, like that brand, there’s a focus on fabulous bases and powders. For now, it’s exclusively at Liberty – where the counter is presided over by the rather depressingly gorgeous Dunja (say it Doon-yah), pictured here, who whisked her brushes expertly across Jo’s face when she had to look glam for her friend Mary McCartney’s 40th birthday bash. Definitely worth a browse, if you’re in the area.
