Little Mix have a make-up line for Collection - what's your favourite product from the range?

"I love my purple lipstick, £2.99, because I love a purple lip, I think it's really on trend now as well and it's the perfect colour."

How did you pick the products to include in your range?

"I think I went for what I would wear myself. So obviously in the nighttime I like a good smoky eye, and I love a nude lip with a bit of pink on my cheeks just to make the rest of my face quite nude, whereas my eyes are more 'out there'.

"And then during the day I like not much on my eyes, so that's why I have those subtle colours in the eyeshadow palette just for my eyes, then to lift them with the mascara that we picked and then my purple lip."

Which products could you not live without?

"I like Lancôme skincare, that's what I use. I try to use the same thing over and over otherwise my skin gets a bit funny. So every night I use the moisturiser. I take my make-up off then I use the eye make-up remover, then I tone and then I moisturise after. So it's a good routine but if I forget I feel really spotty."

Favourite make-up looks for summer and winter?

"In the summer I like all the light colours, the nice bright lips. In the summer you can be really fun with it. Then in the winter I love dark lips. My purple lips would be perfect around Christmas with a nice jumper and a little white hat. It would look cute, I like winter and all the autumn clothes."

What's your favourite fragrance?

"I don't have a sense of smell, I wear Christina Aguilera Eau de Parfum, £19 for 30ml, because that's what everyone says I smell nice wearing, so I stick to the same one. I don't trust anything else."

What make-up tips have you picked up from the professionals?

"It sounds silly but I used to always apply my make-up with my hands, and now I like brushes. So I apply my foundation, my concealer and everything with a brush instead."

Does your make-up change when you go to America?

"Yes, it's really weird, when we are here [in the UK] it's quite cool so our make-up looks matte, whereas as soon as we are in the heat it looks so shiny. We need to powder every five seconds because of the heat, so we all end up looking a tad sweaty!"

What's been your favourite red carpet look?

"I liked going to the One Direction premiere, I loved my dress. That was amazing, it felt like a nice day, chilled out and relaxed."

Being in the public eye, are you more conscious of what you wear when you leave the house?

"Not really, it is a bit of a pain when you are trying to go to a dance rehearsal and you just want to wear no make-up, a pair of joggers and hair tied back, and then you get papped, that's a bit rubbish. I think we just like experimenting with fashion and having fun with it. Fashion is meant to be fun and to be played with. So I don't really care what people say."

What has your favourite video shoot look been?

"I liked 'DNA' and 'Wings', because 'Wings' was really fresh and young but then 'DNA' was dark and fierce, and we got to be a character and wear a dark lip and eyes. I thought that was a cool look."
