As much as we give the world many great things – Miranda Kerr, Vegemite, Sass & Bide – we can’t do everything first. It would mess with our laid-back mojo.
So this summer, feel free to re-trend the face paint movement that was all over the music festival scene in the US and UK. (Remember: Drew, Lily and all the cool kids went mad with the face paint.)
Sarah Blasko – who scored Best Female at last night’s ARIAs – was obviously having some fun with her powder and paint before she hit Homebush; she’d applied a smudge of purple, green and black to her outer eye and looked rather quirky cool. The best bit is you're too old to get an earful from mum for making a mess. Try MAC Paint Pot ($35).
