The biggest faux-pas my girls make is buying the same blush – we can’t all rock the same colours now can we? But these days they’re getting feistier and the other day, one quipped back. She so keenly pointed out that there are swirled palettes and pearly multicoloured balls. Sadly, she is right. Happily, that doesn’t mean I’m wrong.
