Rochelle, who's married to JLS hottie Marvin Humes, has a two month old daughter, Alaia-Mai so it's a wonder she has time to even wash her face, let alone apply this type of time-consuming make-up!

But it seems The Saturdays' fabulous make-up artist, Celena Hancock has been giving a few of her secrets away and Rochelle has obviously been listening well...

"Just attempted a smokey eye. Using the tips @Celena2112 has given me...x" Rochelle posted along with these gorgeous close-up shots (above).

Er, we don't call that an 'attempt' Rochelle, we call that a very successful smoky eye we're slightly jealous we can't re-create ourselves!

Oh well, at least she offered a bit of extra help for us lesser mortals in the shape of a photo of the tools she used to create her look (below).

Rochelle used just one palette for this blue-toned, smoky effect. Too Faced Smokey Eye Shadow Collection, £26, to be exact.

She applied a mid-blue toned shadow, Smoking Jacket, over her eye socket, followed by a dark blue, Smolder, under her bottom lashes and above the socketline in a kind of teardrop shape.

To finish, she chose In A Flash, a sexy silver highlighter and blended it up to the browbone to lift and open up the eyes.

And obviously no smoky eye is complete without some fabulous fake lashes, so Rochelle has gone for every celebrity's favourite falsies, Eylure Naturalites Evening Wear Eye Lashes in No.101, £5.35,

So let's get this straight. She looks good, has a hot husband, a cute baby, can sing and dance and now it seems she's pretty nifty with a make-up brush too.

Not fair.
