Stop what you're doing! Geordie Shore's Charlotte Crosby has taken to YouTube to share yet another make-up tutorial - but this time there isn't any cleaning brushes on your tongue business involved - oh no...

The gorgeous reality star teamed up with her trusty make-up artist Cassie to bring us a whole hoard of failsafe tips and tricks to glam, glowing, dewy skin and - believe it or not - we've actually learnt so much!

Are you ready?

Lesson One: Make sure your skin is hydrated.

"Always start with a good moisturizer," Cassie tells Charlotte in the five minute video. "It's important, if you want glowy skin, that you prep and prime it first. It's not all about the product you want to put on." Gotcha!

Lesson Two: Ditch the foundation.

"We always want a golden finish so I'm mixing some primer in with a CC cream instead of foundation," reveals Cassie as she merges the two products on the back of her hand. This warms them up so both glide on to the skin seamlessly.

Cassie continues, "It gives a much lighter finish. It's always best to test the colour on your chin because then you can test it next to your chest – you want them to be the same colour. I'm using a brush here that's quite fluffy because if you use a fluffy brush rather than a stiff brush it blends the product while you're applying it. Always blend the colour right down the neck as well."

Lesson Three: Go for pinky-toned concealers

Colour correcting is huge in the beauty sphere and Cassie and Charlotte have a top tip to concealing bags and blemishes...

"Use liquid products under the eye," says Cassie "because they are lightweight and we're going for a natural look. You want to make sure they have a pinky tone to them rather than a yellow tone, otherwise, they accentuate any dark or grey areas."

Lesson Four: The contour is not dead!

Cassie goes for a slight contour in the video, not a seriously sharp one a la Kim Kardashian.

"I'm just going to do a little bit of contouring [in the hollows of the cheeks] using a shade darker than Charlotte's actual skin tone, just to define the cheekbones," Cassie says. "You want a dark taupe colour (not an orange based hue) because it gives the illusion of a shadow. A blush is too obvious."

Lesson Five: A pretty flush will complete the look.

Don't opt for pinks or an even darker bronzer! Cassie loves understated shades instead. "A peachy shimmery glow on the cheeks will give you a fresh, awake look," she finishes.
