Choosing The Only Way Is Essex's Chloe Lewis to launch their brand spanking new collection of nude lipsticks was a total no brainer for COLLECTION Cosmetics - she's arguably the most glam cast member, after all...

Earlier today, stunning Chloe made her debut at their 1920s inspired photocall in London and even though all eyes were on her fabulous flapper-style dress, the beauty obsessive in us couldn't help but swoon over her smouldering make-up - just look at her glow!

The best part, though? We have Chloe's talented MUA Francescal Neill (who also tends to the likes of Cheryl Cole and Alesha Dixon, FYI) on hand to give us a breakdown of every single product she used and how we can snag the look in a matter of minutes.

"A 1920's make-up look is all about a smokey eye, soft photo ready skin and a defined lip," she said. Are you taking note?


"To prep the skin, first I applied the COLLECTION Reviving & Anti-Fatigue Illuminating Primer in Apricot, £4.99 all over to create a radiant base. This primer is my secret weapon for achieving the ultimate red carpet worthy glow," Francesca said.

Top tip: Use your fingertips to smooth the primer over a cleansed complexion and gently pat it onto sensitive areas, such as under the eyes and around the nose.

"For an extra boost of radiance," Francesca continued, "I applied this to cheekbones, brow bone, and cupids bow. It catches the light and creates a really healthy glow." Gotcha!

When it came to Chloe's foundation base, Francesca looked to one of Kim Kardashian's favourites - and even though it's pricey, we know it's well worth it!

"I applied Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, £37 with a foundation brush to create a flawless complexion," revealed Francesca and like a true professional she went in with the concealer once the foundation base had been perfected.

"I applied the COLLECTION Lasting Perfection Concealer, £4.19 under the eyes to brighten the complexion and also onto the lids as a base for the eyeshadow." Clever, no?

But what about those perfectly chiselled cheeks? They can't come cheap, surely...

"For a light contour I used the COLLECTION Contour Kit, £4.19," mentioned Francesca, "blending the bronzer under the cheeks, then lightly dusting the highlighter on the tops of the cheeks for subtly defined cheekbones."

When it came to Chloe's pretty peepers, Francesca proved that it's time to ditch the brooding kohl and intensely pigmented gel liners.

"To create a soft, smokey 1920's eye I used the COLLECTION Eyes Uncovered Palette in Nude Rose, £3.99 because the palette contains everything you need to create a subtle yet statement eye."

"First I applied the light rose gold shade all over the lid and up to the brow bone to create a light base for the look. I then applied the dark black shade into the outer corner of the eye for definition," she said.

And to finish?

"I used the copper-brown shade and applied this into the crease to blend the look together." We recommend using a fluffy eye contour or blending brush for a seamless finish.

"To make the eyes pop," Francesca continued, "I used M.A.C's eyeliner in Coffee, £14. Using a brown shade keeps the eyes the centre of attention but keeps the look soft. I finished off the eyes with lashings of Lancôme Hypnose Mascara, £17.95 for that sultry twenties flutter.

Chloe is always rocking gorgeous nude smackers and her look was created in just two super-simple steps. Yep, really!

"A 1920's look is always finished by a well-defined nude lip," said Francesda. "To prep the lip I first used M.A.C's lip pencil in Boldly Bare, £12.50, applying [that] over the whole lip to create a base and then lining around the edges for definition."

And for the satin-y lip colour? "I then applied the COLLECTION Deluxe Lipstick in Chicago, £3.99 straight from the bullet for a wearable nude lip in a creamy, luxe finish."
