As any self-proclaimed nerd will know, it’s the première of the latest instalment of Star Wars TONIGHT! I grew up on these films, remembering watching the original trilogy with my parents on VHS recorded off the TV from sometime in the 80s, complete with vintage advertisements from Woolworths and Fry’s Turkish Delight and stored in a classy faux leather bound book case.

The latest collab spot by me is this one for CoverGirl. UPDATE: There’s also a collection with the same visuals coming out with MaxFactor in the UK!
