Let’s face it, Alesha Dixon knows a thing or two about looking flawless. So when we had the chance to sit down with the superstar and talk all things beauty, we couldn’t wait to steal her tips and tricks.
Want to know what it really takes to look like an A-lister? Here’s what the lovely lady had to say…
Alesha, what’s your best ever beauty tip?
I always say that beauty is what radiates from within you. If you feel good inside you are going to radiate it. If you are happy and joyful it’s going to shine through your eyes and the way you carry yourself. So I always say it’s important to start from the inside and work your way out. My beauty tips are never products, I think it’s more important to be in a good state of mind, because it’s your inner beauty that shines through.
What is your favourite feel-good outfit?
I have a cashmere onesie that I LOVE. It’s baby-pink with white stars and when I’m at home it’s like just wearing a blanket – it’s really cosy!
What would you say are the 3 ‘most-used’ products in your make-up bag?
Ooh I’d have to say my MAC Zoom Lash Mascara, because it instantly gives me amazing lashes. Sisley’s Lip balm as it keeps my lips soft and smooth. Then finally, it’s have to be the MAC Lip Pencil in Chickery.
What’s your secret to good skin?
Well I have been taking the Swisse Hair, Skin and Nails Supplements, £29.99 for 60 tablets, and I’ve noticed a real difference! It’s not just my skin that looks healthier, I’ve stopped using hair extnsions because my own natural hair has got so thick. I’m really impressed!
Sounds good! Are there any other supplements you swear by?
Well I’m also taking the Swisse Women’s Ultivite’s, £9.99 for 30 tablets. They really help keep me going when i’m working a lot and need the energy, I think we all need a little extra help sometimes!
What’s your go-to hairstyle for a night out?
Probably hair back into a ponytail. My natural hair is curly, so if it’s a night out I don’t want to worry about frizz, it’s much better slicked back into a ponytail.
What’s your favourite shop on the highstreet?
I love Zara, because I can always find amazing statement pieces in there. Plus I can shop for me and my daughter – the clothes they do for children are great!
What’s your best tip for hiding a late night?
What I like to do is pop a few ice cubes in a flannel and just hold it on your face and under your eyes, it calms any redness and help de-puff.
If you were an Emoji, which one would you be?
Definitely the laughing out loud one, you know with the tears rolling down!
What would you say is a great piece of life advice that you have been given?
To enjoy your present moment because I think so many people are stuck in the past or they are planning so far ahead into the future that they forget that actually right now is all we have and the only thing that matters is to enjoy the now.
Who would you say is the person you most admire?
I would say… Oprah Winfrey. I think she is just a really great example of someone who has worked hard her whole life and uses power in such a great way because her intentions are only to help people live their best life, her work is so inspiring. I just love who she is as a human being and what she stands for. I really admire her and I really respect her.
