Tell us a little bit about the British Heart Foundation campaign. Why did you decide to get involved?

I was asked to be the face of the charity and I thought it was such a good cause. It really is an amazing charity and it helps save so many lives every year. That's great to be a part of. I love wearing red, too!

We adored the Hollywood-inspired look – did you have fun shooting the campaign images?

Yes, I really did. It was a fun day and the team was lovely. Everything I wore was red, for the charity's theme, and it was all so glamorous. The dresses were from Forever Unique and the stylist on the shoot was the legendary Lucas Armitage.

If we were to look inside your make-up bag, what buys would we find?

You'd almost always find the Chanel Soleil Bronzer, NARS Sheer Glow foundation in Barcelona, £31, Bobbi Brown BB Cream, £29.50 and Tinted Moisturiser.

I use GOSH lip liners quite a lot, they are really really nice for tracing and filling in the lips.

Girls With Attitude lashes are amazing and really affordable and there's a new brand called _i-lashes_. My make-up artist Krystal Dawn introduced me to them.

Are there any bargain beauty buys you're loving at the moment?

Simple wipes I always use! I love the Illamasqua Skinbase Foundation, £32.50, that glides on nicely. I use a combination of moisturisers and cleansers. At the minute I'm using one by Dior – my mum got it for me for Christmas after we fell in love with the sample in Debenhams! But I also use Manuka Doctor moisturizer all the time.

Your hair is always so perfectly voluminous! What products do you use to keep it in place?

I really love Salon Science and I always use their Reglosse Smoothing Serum, £18 on damp hair. I also use Salon Science shampoo and conditioner to keep my hair soft and full of volume.

TRESsemme is great and I'm a high-street girl at heart, really. Phillip Kingsley's masks are good as well!

Do you have any predictions for the next series of TOWIE?

Probably drama – as always! And a few new people but I don't know them…

We heard you might be going away with the clan again – are you looking forward to it?

Yeah, I'm sure it will be fun and it always is to be honest. I know where we're going but I'm not allowed to say yet…

What are your in-flight essentials?

I take my M.A.C Lip Conditioner, £12, an eye mask and my Beats by Dr Dre headphones. They are the main ones but sometimes I'll pop in my Chanel Bronzer.

You work a lot with make-up artist Krystal Dawn. Are there any tips, tricks or hacks that you've learned from her?

She taught me how to contour myself! Under the eyes I use NARS' Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard, £22 to highlight.

I've learned not to use an orange based bronzer on my cheeks. I always use a more grey toned bronzer instead. I use a lip liner and put it all over my lips and sometimes I'll put a lipstick over it but the majority of the time I don't bother!

NARS Concealer in Vanilla £22, 18th November 2015

Sometimes Krystal will use the individual lashes by Ardell to layer, especially if I have small ones on. She'll just put on a little bit of mascara over them so my natural lashes blend in with them.

As for my eyebrows I have them tinted and threaded. I have had them tattoed in the past but Krystal and I will just shade them in with pencils because I like them to look more natural rather than really defined and blocky!
