What are your essential products for flawless skin?

"I use Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, £34.50, which is really good, but if I want a bit more coverage I like Bobbi Brown Long-wear Even Finish Compact Foundation in Honey, £32. Then I apply MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder, £20, over the top along with YSL Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder, £34."

What do you keep in your handbag for on-the-go touch-ups?

"Always mascara - my favourite is Maybelline The Volum' Express Colossal Mascara, £7.19 - and my powder because I don't want to look shiny. Then a lipgloss and MAC Lip Pencil In Spice, £12. I lost my one at the weekend though and I'm fuming. I only just bought it because I'd lost the one before!"

How do you take your make-up look from day to night?

"I apply an eye pencil on my waterline and go a bit heavier with my blusher. I also put on some individual lashes or a dark lip – one or the other. I like vampy lipsticks but they are quite hard to pull off. My favourite lip colour at the moment would be a really dark purple or a bright red."

In TOWIE you've sported lots of different eye looks - from winged liner to tons of glitter - which is your favourite?

"When I watch myself on TOWIE I always think I look better with a natural eye, so a nude eyeshadow all over my lids with a little liquid liner flick and natural lashes. I'm useless at eyeliner though. I like using an eyeliner pen, I can't use those little gel pots!"

You have perfect brows, what's your secret?

"I get them tattooed by Tracie Giles. I do go over them in the evening though with my HD Eye & Brow Palette, £19.96, but during the day it's so much easier just having them already done. I love amazing brows, mine used to be really thin."

What hairstyle will you be sporting most this party season?

"I love the Easilocks Vogue Fringe, £29.99, I like to wear it with the rest of my hair down and a bit messy, it looks really cool. I'm going to try and rock that look during the Christmas season."

If you only had five minutes to style your hair for an event, what would you do?

"I'd use the Easilocks Hollywood Ponytail, £36.99, that way it will look neat. If you start curling your hair, you're only going to get half of it done in five minutes and then you'll look like an idiot, so definitely put it in a ponytail!"

What's your favourite styling tool?

"I've just discovered the BaByliss Curl Secret, £119.99, it's amazing! My little sister has one and I used it the other day. I'm definitely putting it on my Christmas list. If you have long hair it will only curl the ends, but I quite like that look."

Lucy Mecklenburgh is Brand Ambassador of The Celebrity Collection, a range of casual wear hairpieces from a fringe to a fishtail by Easilocks. Available from www.easilocks.com.
