Caroline Donnelley, 30, originally from Sunderland, is a star Mac Cosmetic make-up artist these days.

She'll be feeling the after-effects of four full days work and a very good after-show party today. She's been at the Baftas supplying a full make-up service in swanky homes and hotel rooms around the capital for celebrity nominees, as well as a `touch up' service on-site during the ceremony.

It's been a full red carpet and red lips event and she's used lots of Pro Long Wear lipstick, pounds 15.50 ( "It lasts for hours and doesn't

THERE will have been lots of pearly white teeth on show last night, the hard work of dentists and dental procedures costing thousands of pounds.

This new Perfect Smile spray from Australian Skin Doctors Cosmeceuticals is much more affordable. Just one spray a day (spray, hold in mouth for 40 seconds, then rinse) will begin to make a difference in just three days.

From Boots, pharmacies and mail order on (0845) 408-2998,, at pounds 19.95 for 125ml and 20ml travel spray.
