Carol Vorderman, 60, glows with age-defying beauty in rare make-up free snap

Carol Vorderman stepped out in an uncharacteristic way on Sunday.

The Countdown icon, 60, decided to head outside make-up free – which is a rare occurrence for the age-defying star who loves to enhance her looks with glamorous cosmetics.

She told her fans that she decided to go out sans mascara, bronzer, blusher and lipstick as she “couldn’t be bothered” to raid her make-up bag before heading outside to enjoy the blanket of snow that fell overnight near her Bristol home.

Proving that Carol does not need the help of make-up to radiate beauty, she gave fans a look at her natural appearance in a gorgeous selfie snapped outside.

The Bachelor’s ‘Queen’ Victoria Larson Seemingly Reacts to Mugshot

Taking the high road? Bachelor season 25 contestant “Queen” Victoria Larson shared a cryptic quote after her 2012 mugshot resurfaced earlier this week.

Us Weekly confirmed that Larson was arrested in Tallahassee, Florida, in July 2012 for stealing more than $250 worth of merchandise from a Publix grocery store.

‘Beauty is Your Duty’ 80 years on – Churchill’s campaign that would spark outrage today

If a Prime Minister now were to suggest that women should ditch their trackie bottoms and put on lipstick to keep up morale, there would be outrage.

But 80 years ago, society was very different, and Winston Churchill’s government introduced clothes rationing and the iconic Beauty is your Duty campaign was rolled out across a war-weary country.

In 1941 there was a genuine fear that if women lost their femininity and looked scruffy or tired, it would lead to a collapse in morale which would be detrimental to society.

Britain’s oldest cosmetics firm, Yardley, rose to the challenge, telling customers, “Let us face the future bravely and honour the subtle bond between good looks and morale.”

Meanwhile Vogue told its readers that “a woman past caring is a woman past repairing”.

How do you think this campaign would be received today? Let us know in the comments section

This New App Is The Deliveroo Of Clothes Repairs

From spring cleans and selling sprees to charity shop drop-offs and TikTok-inspired customisation, time and space away from wearing real clothes everyday (2020 had our loungewear on heavy rotation) allowed us to look at our existing wardrobe with fresh eyes. One thing we’ve been unable to do thanks to nationwide lockdowns, though, is get the clothes in need of a little love repaired and mended. Sure, we’ve invested in moth balls and dust bags, leather wax (those Dr Martens aren’t going to clean themselves!) and ocean-friendly delicate washing liquid, but when it comes to mending, altering and tailoring, sometimes you need a second pair of hands – and a more skilled set at that. Enter: Sojo. The new app, launching today, is here to make your journey to a more sustainable wardrobe a little easier. The premise is
