Holly Willoughby is fast becoming one of our favourite TV stars for style and beauty inspo.
Whether she’s making us giggle with her and Phillip Schofield’s naughty antics on This Morning or adding some glam to the Celebrity Juice panel alongside BFF Fearne Cotton, we’re constantly crushing on Holly’s impeccable sense of style.
Which is why we couldn’t wait to find our the mum-of-three’s ultimate beauty tips – after all, she never gets it wrong when it comes to hair and make-up.
So, what are Holly’s day make-up essentials? Well, despite that flawless skin, she’s not a huge fan of foundations that give full coverage, favouring the natural look instead.
‘I’m not very good at wearing things on my skin, even foundation, I just don’t like the feel of it’, she told Marie Claire. ‘So my BB cream is my best bet, it literally just feels like I’m wearing a moisturiser.
‘A little bit goes a long way; I put a small amount on the back of my hand and then press four dots of it onto my face and blend in.’
And what about when she’s going out and wants to look a little more glam? Well, Holly loves a bold lippy, but says that fake eyelashes and heavy eyeshadows are not her thing.
‘I’m quite low-key but when I need to look a little more glamorous I’ll usually add a brighter lipstick – maybe a red’, she said. ‘I like a matte lipstick and I love MAC reds. It’s so easy to add a red lip and be instantly ready to go out.’
And, of course, those famous platinum locks are the envy of many a bottle blonde. So, what’s her haircare secret?
‘Until recently I just didn’t believe I could get the blonde that I want with an at-home hair colour’, Holly admitted. ‘Also in the past I’ve found it too difficult to get the blonde right at home – blonde has a tendency to go too warm.’
‘I’ve spent half my life in the hairdressers – it’s the bane of my life. Even when having a tint in salon I would have use double the tint to get the colour to lift enough but Garnier Nutrisse Crème, £5.49, lifts the colour even lighter than the salon. My shade is 10.01 Natural Baby Blonde.’
And there you have it. Holly’s best beauty secrets… Now, we’re off to invest in a decent BB cream!
