“Con­fi­dence is si­lent, in­se­cu­ri­ties are loud” as the say­ing goes. When my con­fi­dence crum­bles away, I start to doubt my­self and that makes me look to oth­ers to tell me how great I am. “Please, please, please like me!”

I know when I’m feel­ing old and fat, my in­ner thoughts are so neg­a­tive that the only way to shut them up is by show­ing off; then that makes me cringe at my­self. What am I like?

Some­body who knows all about con­fi­dence is makeup en­tre­pre­neur Tr­ish McEvoy, whom I met re­cently in Lon­don when she launched her book, The Makeup of a Con­fi­dent Woman, left, €25. Un­like other beauty books, it teaches you the power of make-up to un­leash your #MakeupConfidence and how do­ing so will re­lease en­dor­phins that cas­cade ben­e­fits through­out your life. Ba­si­cally the book teaches you that if you look at your­self and feel bet­ter, that’s em­pow­er­ing.
