Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts: I feel more like myself without make-up
I love Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. I apply it liberally to my lips throughout the day and before bed. It’s also great for your hands, especially in the winter. For those days when I do need a little more help, Rodial Dragon’s Blood Eye Masks are great, along with the Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Mask.
Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation and Magic Cream, as well as her Supermodel Body illuminator. She understands fairer skin tones, because she has red hair, pale skin and some freckles. I wear my own concealer, from my Dainty Doll beauty range.
It’s paraben free, so it’s kind to my skin. I also swear by Eylure Naturalites Natural Volume Lashes in 020 for a really casual look and the Texture Lashes in 154 if I’m going out.
No. I feel more like myself without make-up, because I’m at my most natural.
What’s your top beauty tip?
It’s no great revelation, but for me less is more.
How do you stay in shape?
I enjoy walks with my dogs and also like to run from time to time. I have danced since I was little, too. I keep my body supple and flexible with dance stretches.
It’s changed as I’ve grown up. Right now I’m wearing L’Occitane Ambre & Santal. It’s a tiny bit masculine, with a woody smell.
Which women do you think are beautiful?
I lean towards other redheads. Emma Stone and Jessica Chastain are both very classic beauties. I also love Jennifer Lawrence. Her film characters always make me feel like I can take on the world.
How do you pamper yourself?
I don’t pamper myself very often. I paint my own nails and only get my hair cut when it really needs it. Just a day to myself with a nice long bath, body oil, a cosy night with movies and a full fridge is perfect for me.
What is your favourite hairstyle?
I’ve been growing my hair for more than two years. I want it to be all the way down to my hips. I had really long hair when I was little, so I’m going full circle.
How do you look after your hair?
I rarely use any heat on it and deep-condition it regularly.
How would you describe your style?
Most days I am very low key. Jumpers and jeans are my staples.
Do you have a favourite shop or designer?
Feelunique.com is brilliant for beauty, as all the new products are there in the one place on the site. It’s a great one-stop shop.
Who are your style icons?
Solange Knowles wears shapes that really suit her and she loves prints, which I do too. I also admire FKA Twigs.
Have you had any fashion disasters?
I ’m having them all the time!
