Michelle’s party fact file

What hap­pened when she hit the town with Look…

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

Get­ting-ready time? 45 mins. Go-to party make-up look? Bronze/brown eye with a fe­line flick. Sound­track? I like club clas­sics, like Set You Free and Show Me Love – any­thing that’s re­ally nos­tal­gic. Key to get­ting ready quickly? Wash­ing your hair the night be­fore and a know­ing what you’re wear­ing. Make-up sched­ule? Mois­turiser, lip balm, primer, eyes, foun­da­tion, pow­der, high­lighter and fi­nally lips. Celeb you’d like to get ready with: Kate Hud­son. She’s re­ally funny and I doubt she’d be too high-main­te­nance and take ages. She’s a real girls’ girl. Best go­ing-out com­pan­ion? My friends from home. When they stay with me in Es­sex, we’re all in dif­fer­ent rooms and we all walk around each one chat­ting to­gether, and we have drink pit stops where we all come to­gether. It takes about three hours to get ready when I’m with them, but it’s fun! Fake tan? I pre­fer mois­tur­is­ing my skin. I love Jo Malone’s Pomegranate Noir Body Creme [£50]. Best tip for long-last­ing make-up? Use a primer. I love Laura Mercier Foun­da­tion Primer [£29]. Do you con­tour?i like us­ing Ben­e­fit’s Hoola bronzer [£23.50] to sculpt my face. I wouldn’t say it’s the strong ex­treme con­tour­ing that’s in fash­ion – I’ve kind of al­ways done it. Do you reap­ply when you’re out? Never. I al­ways lose make-up if I take it out with me. I only take blot­ting pow­der and the lip colour I have on for touch-ups. Does your hus­band Mark [Wright] get an­noyed with you when you’re get­ting ready? No, not re­ally. I usu­ally go off first and then 15 min­utes be­fore I’m ready I give him a shout: ‘Right, you can get in the shower now, I’m half­way there.’ I wish I was a boy and just had to put a T-shirt and a pair of jeans on – they have it so easy! Best tip for cov­er­ing bruises? Don’t waste your time cov­er­ing them up – just go for a longer skirt or jeans. How do you cre­ate your per­fect bouncy curls? I use a Babyliss Bou­tique Soft Waves Hairstyler [£30]. I clip my hair up into sec­tions, curl each layer, then spritz it with hairspray. Once I’m done I tip my hair up­side down and brush it out for vol­ume. Do you take your make-up off af­ter a night out? Al­ways! I use Ori­gins Checks& bal­ances frothy face wash [£16.50], take off the ex­cess with Sim­ple Face Wipes [£3.25], then ap­ply Ro­dial Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Night Cream [£58]. Skin hang­over cure? Lots of wa­ter. I try not to wear make-up and pin my hair back off my face to let my skin breathe.
