Zoe Foster Blake reveals the one beauty mistake we’re all making

Uh oh… Is anyone else guilty of this?

Ladies, it might be time to update our make-up bags.
Because beauty guru, Amazinger Face author and Go-To skin care creator, Zoe Foster Blake, has just brought to our attention something that we have been doing wrong for the entirety of our make-up careers.
While black eyeliner has no doubt been a staple in just about every beauty bag, the Australian stunner has just provided us with a very good reason to throw it away.
“I think [eye] liners [have had] too good a rap for too long. I think it’s very unflattering on most women,” the mother-of-one told Kate Waterhouse in a new Date With Kate interview.
Explaining her reasoning, Zoe continued: “Black liner around the eye makes your eyes look smaller.”
Ok, we are making notes. Tell us more!

At this point, you might be wondering what on earth we’re supposed to do now.
Thankfully, the Wrong Girl writer offered up a very helpful alternative.
“I think you should reassess, if you’re a really big black liner user, maybe even just doing the top line, not lower, or try a brown or a plum or even a navy," she explained.
Taylor Swift loves to shake it up with navy kohl around the eyes, while Sofia Vergara is all about brown.
Speaking of something never goes out of style; Zoe also revealed the one beauty product guaranteed to stand the test of time.
“Lipstick is always in, whether it's matte, creamy, glossy and so on,” she said.
The mother of Sonny Blake defines lipstick to be “something that you get the most amount of impact for the smallest amount of effort!”
Lipstick can take any look from drab to fab in one simple step!
With four novels, two beauty books, a skincare brand, and a new television show based on her best-seller, we wonder how this super-woman has any time left for the her most important part of her life, her two-year-old son, Sonny, who she shares with husband Hamish Blake.
When asked how she manages to juggle everything, the 36-year-old quipped to Kate: "My main thing is just to only do one thing at that time and try and be good at that."
"In the mornings, I don't turn [my phone] on till 9, trying to just be with [Sonny] because he is only going to be small for a minute and then he won't want to play with me!"

"Going from two to three is special and you feel like a little team!" Says Zoe of life as a mother.
And while the mother-of-one admits that she does have plans to grow her brood with her radio royalty husband, she confessed that bub number two is still a little way off.
"We want at least another kid, but I was always going to leave quite a gap between the two. I also sort of broke my body with Sonny," Zoe explained.
"I want to get my body super-fit and tight, not tight but like core strength, so that it doesn't break again!"
She went on: "I think as a career woman, I have to go, 'Well, when does it fit right?' Last time I did this sh*tty job [at timing] – I had a book and a skin-care line and then a baby!
"It's a lot of things to consider because it's not just [the birth], it's two years of your life. It's the pregnancy, birth, it's the breast-feeding … It's all of that. So, I take it seriously."
