Ashley James has given us an insight into how she creates naturally glowing make-up – and she's also revealed a few of her bargain make-up must-haves at the same time...

The former Made in Chelsea star often goes into detail about her beauty regime on her blog and we love her latest post about creating the infamously tricky-to-pull-off no make-up make-up!

Ashley looks gorgeously fresh-faced in this snap and we want to look the same! 21 September 2014

With her practically flawless complexion, Ashley could easily get away with wearing no make-up at all, so it was nice to see that she uses a whole host of products to create a beautiful, barely-there look.

And what we love the most is that some of her favourite products are bargains, straight from the high-street.

After applying her favourite primer, she likes to use a BB cream rather than foundation to even out red patches (er, what red patches?!) and give a soft, natural base.

And her favourite BB? Good old The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream, £12,

She then uses an array of Benefit concealers to ditch blemishes and reduce dark eye circles, before fixing her face with Miners Fresh Faced Powder, £3.99,

Her tip for the most natural-looking finish is to apply powder on your t-zone only, so you don't leave your face with a veil of powder in places where you don't really need it.

She also likes to apply her illuminating cream under her eyes AFTER applying her powder so the powder doesn't mattify it.


We can see that Ashley's lessons with top celebrity make-up artist Louise Constad really did pay off!
