Mrs Humes spills the tips and tricks from her bulging beauty bag...

Ever wanted to delve into the beauty bag of an A-lister? You got it! designer and new X Factor star Rochelle Humes spills the beauty beans on her fave products. And while the star might look a million dollars, her beauty regime certainly doesn’t cost it, as Rochelle’s hero products start from just £3! You can take the girl out of Essex…

Now: Hi Rochelle! You’re a busy working mum, what’s your hero beauty buy that always makes you feel like you’ve had a full night’s sleep?

‘I swear by HD Brows foundation, £32 – it’s light so doesn’t cake my skin, and delivers a dewey glow in an instant. It always sorts me out on bad skin days!’

How do you change your make up between summer and autumn?

‘In the summer you can go lighter with the make-up – I like going a bit softer and showing my freckles! However I always get excited about Autumn as I can go heavier with eyeliner and darker lips.’

What beauty products do you always have in your handbag?

‘I don’t go anywhere without Sisley lip balm, £39.60 – it’s unbelievable! I just use a little lip liner and smooth it over the top to keep my lips glossy and hydrated. I also always carry a bottle of perfume, at the moment I love Estee Lauders Bronze Goddess.’

We’re beyond jel of your barnet! What’s your secret?

‘My hair suffers from a lot of heat damage, so I use lots of treatments! I use Philip Kingsley Elasticizer, £29 on holiday whilst I was sit by the pool, but it’s also a luxurious, pampering treatment for winter, too.’

What’s your wonder beauty product?

‘Definitely coconut oil! I use it as a moisturiser, hair treatment, make up remover and it’s also a natural antiseptic so it’s great for a spot treatment.’

What’s your bargain beauty hack?

‘Johnson’s Face wipes, £3.05 all the way! They’re great for taking my make up quickly, especially if I’ve been filming late. I love the feeling of tying my hair up and having fresh, clean skin before bed.’
