Tried & Tested: Iris Apfel make-up

At an amazing 94 years old, Iris Apfel is one of our favourite style icons! Known for her bright red lips and green eyeshadow, this is a woman who isn't afraid to take some beauty risks. If you fancy channelling a bit of her star power, we round up your top products.

MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in Treat Me Nice - 4/5

I'm not sure I could pull off a full eyelid of green like the legendary Iris, so instead I went for a slick of green liquid liner. MAC didn't disappoint with this product, and it stayed put all day. It even survived a gym session! The colour is vibrant and fun, and can be used for a subtle effect or a bolder impact with a feline flick- I love that you have the choice. On the downside, the tip of the applicator wasn't as thin as I usually like, so the line was a little less precise.

Lancôme Ombre Hypnôse Mono in P207 - 4/5

Despite wearing thick-rimmed glasses (like I do), Iris loves a splash of bright eyeshadow. I decided to be brave with this bold blue shadow by Lancôme, which I'm sure the star will approve of, and now I've tried it, I'd definitely wear it again. What I like about the make-up is that the colour complements my peepers and makes them stand out, even from behind my specs. It's not a look I'd choose to wear on an average day but I imagine I'll be slicking it on again for my next night out.

Rimmel Apocalips Matte in Orange-Ology - 5/5

Iris loves a bright splash of red lipstick and I can see why - it helps her look fabulous! Personally, I'm with her on the lipstick loving and am always on the hunt for a new shade to try. This matte liquid is perfect, because it's not as heavy as many other products but still gives a deep colour. Unlike many other lipglosses, it's long lasting and can withstand a few hours of eating and drinking. A winner in my books!
