Even Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has had a few beauty disasters in her time.
Yep. It’s hard to believe, but the permanently-polished X Factor judge has opened up about how she first discovered her make-up style.
And in her interview with The Telegraph, Chezza has admitted that she didn’t always find it particularly easy to get herself glammed up.
‘I think my first memories of make-up are from when I was around 13 or 14 and I first tried to use a black eyeliner with a little inkwell,’ says Cheryl.
‘You would shake it and try to do a straight line on your eye, which takes a long time to master. I’d always use too much and end up having to wipe it all off and start again.
‘I’ve been doing it for so long now that I’m used to it and can slap it on quickly but I think that, doing what I do, I got fast-track lessons.’
It wasn’t only her peepers that Cheryl experimented with as a youngster. She also became quite a fan of a certain perfume.
‘I’ve always loved different smells. People used to say they could smell me before they saw me and that it was always a mixture of stuff,’ she continues.
‘I used to douse myself in Red Jeans by Versace, which was about £15 and came in a tin.’
As we know, Cheryl has now released her own (very successful) fragrances. StormFlower is ‘exactly how she likes to smell’ while StormFlower Noir is ‘more of a night-time’ scent.
She’s also majorly simplified her morning routine.
‘Nowadays I like to feel feminine and girlie but as time goes on, especially on holiday, I like to be barefaced, so I can differentiate from work. I keep everything simple at home,’ she says.
‘I like a facewash with a bit of exfoliant in it. If I’ve got a spot coming I use Sudocrem. My skin doesn’t like complication.
‘I change body lotions quite a lot though – I like to use one with oil before bed so it has time to soak in.
‘I tend not to put body moisturiser on before I get dressed because if you’re wearing tight jeans, you can forget getting into them.’
Lolz. We’re with you on that one, Chezza.
