Show judge Tulisa reveals her beauty secrets

OK, we have to admit we didn’t love Tulisa Contostavlos’s blonde hair and, to be honest, it really wouldn’t have looked great for The X Factor live shows.

So, phew, she’s gone back to her brunette roots, which us girlies know means a complete overhaul of your make-up, too.

Gone is the overblown Barbie girl image Tulisa‘s been rockin’ for the last couple of months and in its place a really toned down style that makes her look, well, pretty!

Seen yesterday outside Radio 1, Tulisa had swept on a golden bronze eyeshadow teamed with pink blush over cheeks and a slick of pink gloss on lips.

Here, Tulisa reveals her fave beauty buys:

Lips

Barry M Lip Paint in 147 ,£4.49, is very matte which I really like, and looks great with a smoky grey eye or classic flicked black eyeliner.’

Cheeks

I love MAC’s Powder Blush in Peaches, £16, to give me a glow.’

Eyes

‘I gently melt a Rimmel Eye Pencil ,£2.99, under a hairdryer, let it cool a little and then apply it. It’ll make your eyeliner stay in place all night without smudging or budging!’
