One of the oldest and most faithful beauty secrets told to us by superstars and mothers alike is: ‘Take off your make-up before you go to bed.’
Even when we have a late night and have perhaps had one too many glasses of wine, most of us diligently remove our make-up before hitting the hay (even if it is just a swipe with a cleansing wipe). But now, revolutionary products claim to last all day and night and won’t clog up your skin – is this too good to be true? And more to the point, would we want to sleep in our make-up?
Sure, being able to sleep in your make-up may have it’s benefits – those of us who are in the early stages of a relationship for example may relish the fact that their new beau doesn’t have to see their bare face just yet. But aside from the odd date night and festival weekend – when would we want to wear make-up to bed?
According to manufacturers, the products are made for women who “work late, party late or travel a lot – or just can’t bear to be without their make-up.”
Intrigued? Here are a few of the products designed to keep you beautiful all night long:
They say: ‘Gives a flawless smooth skin finish and stays put for up to 25 hours.’
We say: Great for long-lasting full cover throughout the day, but sleeping in it may not do your skin any favours.
