We're not all Desperate Scousewives! Ladies of Liverpool believe they are the most natural looking in the UK
Ladies of Liverpool do not generally have a reputation for advocating the natural look when it comes to make-up and styling.
But a new survey has revealed that the women who made the 'scouse brow' famous – and who frequently pile on the make-up at Aintree – believe they are the most natural looking in the UK.

Women in Portsmouth and Cambridge,
Edinburgh and Glason also feel confident heading to the shops without
their slap on. And we are more likely to turn to natural-looking
celebrities for inspiration too.
fresh-faced Duchess of Cambridge – who famously spends up to four hours
