Look as lovely as Lily Allen - Metro US

Look as lovely as Lily Allen

We take a peek into the singers makeup bag to find out how she stays fresh-faced throughout Fashion Week.

1: Nails that pop and cheeks that glow

“During the shows, I always wear a nail polish in a fun color, usually by Chanel. And for my cheeks, MAC blush in Peaches. Those two are my absolute must-haves.”

2: A smooth, understated pout

“I always carry Fresh lip products in my bag. I use the Sugar Lip Polish, which is a great exfoliant, and the Sugar Rose [Tinted] Lip Treatment, which moisturizes and has a hint of color.”

“With lipsticks, I tend to go for nude shades. You can never go wrong with Nars.”

“My favorite lip gloss at the moment is the MAC Tinted Lipglass in Underage.”

3: Dramatic eyes or bold lips for night, never both

“If I have a show followed by an after-party, I might add a lip color or go for darker eyes to switch from the day to evening look. But I would never do both together. I always have my Chanel eyeliner at hand and apply mascara by Max Factor. It’s nice because it’s not too thick.”

4: One personal fragrance for one month of shows

“Right now I’m wearing Avignon by Comme des Garcon. It’s my signature scent.”

5: A clean, light base

“My beauty rules are to drink lots of water and to try to go for a facial once a month. I don’t really like wearing heavy makeup on my skin. Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer is perfect for me, as it’s really light.”

“In order to look fresh during a show-packed schedule and face the constant flash of the cameras, I always, without fail, use Liz Earle’s Cleanse and Polish to remove all my makeup before I go to bed. And I always have a glass of hot water and lemon in the mornings to cleanse my system. It’s the best beauty advice I’ve ever been given.”
