Millie Mackintosh's radiant complexion, glossy hair and bronzed bod are seriously high on our lust list so we persuaded her to share some of her beauty know-how. Listen up!

Speaking exclusively to Reveal, the Made in Chelsea star let us in on her hair, skin, make-up and tanning secrets.

Millie Mackintosh at The Arqiva British Academy Television Awards, London, 12/5/13


Millie revealed how she gets her signature glow

Manuka Doctor ApiClear Foaming Cleanser, £16.99
'I cleanse with this every morning. It's a nice foamy face wash that's really great for my skin. I sometimes get spots if I'm stressed or if I've been over-indulging bu this keeps them away.'

Living Nature Clear Lights Tinted Moisturiser, £20
'I'm really into my tinted moisturisers rather than heavy foundations. At the moment, I'm loving this one. It's really lightweight, goes on smoothly and evens out your complexion. It has a nice shimmer too.'

Becca Bronzing Skin Perfector, £28
'This is great if you've been running around all day and feeling a little washed out. It has a matte powder finish that feels velvety on your skin but adds a touch of bronze. I love it.'

Duwop Fall Out Shadow in Corduroy, £15.90
'This is a nice eye shadow trio. It's lovely for doing a quick brown smoky eye. I use the pinky nude colour on the lid then the medium brown in the socket line and the darkest brown along my lash line and in the outer corner.'

Eyeko Brow Gel, £18
'This sets your eyebrows as well as adding a little colour and it's a perfect shade match for me.'

Millie's go-to hairstyle is wavy and voluminous

Stila Lip and Cheek Stain in Coconut, £16
'I use this on my lips and cheeks. It's a lovely colour with a tan and it has a slight shimmer. It's really pretty.'

Ojon Rare Blend Deep Conditioner, £29
'I use a hydrating mask or treatment once a week and leave it in overnight. I'm using this at the moment along with Ojon's Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner, £17.50 and £20.50.'

L'Oreal Paris Elnett Heat Protect Styling Spray, £5.99
'My styling routine? I wash my hair, let it dry naturally a little and then I spray this through the mid-lengths and ends. Then I rough dry it with a hairdryer and a big barrel brush to smooth out the strands round my face which go a bit frizzy.

I use a WAM wide-barreled curling tong, £75, to curl the ends up to about mid-length, directing them away from my face. I like it a few hours later when the waves have fallen out a bit.'

St Tropez Self-Tan Bronzing Mousse, £20.43
'It's St Tropez all the way for me! I've just had a spray tan but I also use this mousse at home. This one's great as it dries quickly and is a good colour on me. Just make sure you exfoliate properly before you apply.'
