Lyd preps her skin with the super affordable St Ives Blemish Fighting Facial Scrub, £3.99 which sloughs away dead cells and excess make-up. "This is my skincare must-have and I use it three times a week without fail," she says. "It's an absolute saviour."

For clear skin like Lydia's it's really important to add a toner to your beautifying regime. It helps fortify the skin and gets rid of any lurking impurities so you can rock that Essex glow! "I look to the Clarins Toning Totion, £19.50 which I'll use with the Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser, £19. Then I'll pop on the Clarins Daily Energiser Cream, £21 to perk up my skin," she says.

Taking a leaf out of Kylie Jenner's book of style, the reality star firstly traces her lips with Kylie's fave MAC lip pencils in Soar and Spice both £12.50 before filling in with the ruby red lippie for a look that screams Hollywood glamour.

"I love Marilyn Monroe, she was such a style icon so I always copy that retro look. It's timeless beauty," she says.

The blonde star revealed that even though she's a high-street girl at heart, she is also big on American brands that the likes of Kim Kardashian rely on for a flawless look. "I recently discovered Anastasia Beverly Hills and I love it, especially their contour kit."

"It's got six colours in it - a bronzer, a few peachy colours for your cheeks and some yellow shades for underneath your eyes. It's always in my make-up kit when we're filming and so is the MAC Studio Fix Foundation. Make-up artists always want to try different things on me but I will not budge from these two products!"

Like us, Lydia has been keeping an eye on Blake Lively's evolving style. "She is killing it at the moment! I always look up what she's wearing because I have my own clothing line and love to collect inspiration that way," she says.

"I do a lot of research for my mood-boards and I take inspiration from catwalk trends and fashion websites. Pinterest is good too - I pinch loads of pictures from there."

It's not long until Lydia flies to Marbs with the rest of the TOWIE cast members but will she be rocking the heavy make-up in the sun?

"No!" she says. "When it comes to the beach I don't wear foundation. I apply some light BB cream and i just wear a subtle SPF on my lips. I'll steer away from a heavy eye and maybe brighten it up a bit with a coral or pink lip in the evening but that's it."

Now she has her beauty regime sorted, will she make like pal Lauren Pope and jump on the Pilates bandwagon to achieve her hot beach bod?

"I'll step up my routine in a few days! I train three times a week and do half an hour of cardio and then half an hour weights every time I go. I find that lunges, ab work and butt presses are great for me too."

Thanks for the beauty advice, Lyd! Although we might skip the workouts for now...
