When Alesha Dixon took to Instagram to share a snap of her brand new blonde locks as she prepared for an "exciting new project with HTC UK," last month, we just knew she was going to uncover some MAJOR beauty news.

And it looks as though we were right, as the stunner has just been unveiled as the face of Smashbox and HTC's brand spanking new selfie make-up kit which promises to make even the most unphotogenic of us Instagram ready in a matter of minutes.

Kylie Jenner, eat your heart out.

Complete with a hydrating primer that will keep your base in place for longer and a creamy highlighter to provide you with a cashmere like finish, the kit contains everything you need to grab the perfect snap like Alesha.

We're also seriously crushing over the no-clumps-no-flake mascara. It wraps around every single lash like a thick black coat in winter to give you a set of wispies that even the TOWIE gang would be jealous of.

What's more, most of the products are formulated with vitamins A and E alongside complexion saving hero, grape seed extract to nourish skin while concealing existing blemishes and uneven skin tone.

Believe it or not Smashbox was actually founded in a photography studio, so the beauty boffs behind this picture perfecting make-up trio definitely know their stuff when it comes to looking fabulous.

They teamed up with HTC UK in anticipation of the release of the super-savvy Desire 620 phone which boasts a range of Live Make-up beauty editing tools that allows you to mix up and experiment with your look even while you pull that pout.

Pretty genius right? And it seems Leesh is just as excited as us to have snapped the kit up!

"I'm a big fan of selfies, but often it takes me ages to get the perfect shot – not ideal with my hectic schedule!" she said. "The Smashbox x HTC Selfie Kit is the new saviour of my makeup bag as it has all the tools to help me look my best. When I combine this with my HTC Desire 620 which acts as my pocket photo-editing suite, I'm always ready for my close-up".

With that in mind, Davis Factor, Founder/SVP of Global Creative for Smashbox Cosmetics has the following tips for creating the perfect selfie using the HTC X Smashbox Selfie Kit. Are you taking notes?!

Lighting, as usual, is everything: Find the most natural light to add brightness and avoid shadows on your face.

Turn away from the camera at an angle – whenever you face the camera straight on, you'll be shown at your widest.

Want to find the ideal position for your phone while shooting? Hold your arm straight out, then lift up slightly to just above eye level.

The limited edition makeup range is available to buy from Smashbox's website for £48, and like Alesha, we're already HUGE fans!
