TOWIE's Chloe Lewis never looks anything short of flawless and she is famed for her signature nude smackers, so it was a total no brainer for COLLECTION Cosmetics to ask her to lift the lid on their stunning new DeLuxe lippie drop.

Here, the reality star talks getting glam in just 15 minutes, her teenage skin troubles and making her make-up last all day.

Chloe on achieving the perfect nude lip - and making it last!

"I wear a nude lip all year round – it's my trademark!" Chloe says. "To apply I first prep the area by using a neutral concealer around the lips, either applied with a finger or a Beauty Blender. Then I apply a lip liner, either Charlotte Tilbury or M.A.C's Spice, £15.50. Then I apply the lipstick which is usually the COLLECTION DeLuxe. If I've got a tan I'll use the coral Sundance shade, or if I'm feeling pale I'll go for a light pink nude, BabyDoll."

And her top tip for making the look last? "Applying a lip liner before putting on your lipstick gives it serious staying power and creates a natural, defined lip," she continues.

Chloe on her ultimate bargain beauty buys.

"I love Benefit's High Beam, £19.50 (Kim Kardashian is a fan, FYI) as it provides the perfect subtle highlight without being overly shimmery and I don't go anywhere without my COLLECTION DeLuxe Lipstick in BabyDoll, £3.99 – it's the perfect nude lip and goes great with any make-up look!" Chloe says.

But what about keeping her skin super-hydrated and soft in the summer? "When I'm out and about I always carry a tub of Kiehls moisturiser which I apply on top of my make-up (yep, you read that correctly) to make my skin look glowy and awake," Chloe says. "I also carry a tube of Nivea Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream, £4.25 in my bag as it's cheap and you can use it anywhere your skin needs moisture."

Chloe on her morning beautifying routine.

"I get ready so quickly!" Chloe reveals. "On a normal day I'll usually take 15 minutes to do my make-up and 10 minutes for skincare - really! If I wash my hair it will be an extra 30 minutes. I usually do quite similar nautral looks for night time too so I really only ever take an hour tops – I'm really speedy."

Chloe on how to take a selfie like Kim Kardashian.

"Everyone has their own signature pose," Chloe says, "so just rock your own style and be confident in yourself and then you'll look great. I find that I usually turn my head slightly to the side for my pose as it means the light hits your face in a really flattering way. Depending on how I'm feeling I'll either pout or smile!"

Chloe on why contouring isn't really her thing...

"I'm not a contour lover," Chloe admits. "I think sometimes using contour palettes and painting your face can look 'overly done'. For a subtly contoured look I apply a base foundation, usually the Giorgio Armani Maestro, £40 and then apply a lighter shade of concealer under the eyes to brighten my complexion. The Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, £4.19 is great."

"After applying a base I'll highlight with lightly shimmering stick along my browbone, down my nose, the tops of my cheeks and cupids bow," Chloe continues. "I'm a highlighting girl through and through! This is super quick and easy in the morning rather than taking time to paint on a contour, and it looks far more natural."

Chloe on totally transforming her skin.

"I've recently overhauled my skincare regime and have started a completely new one. I went to see a skincare specialist who prescribed me with the Obagi range. I suffered with acne when I was younger and have a tiny bit of scaring so I'm hoping to clear that up with this new regime! Before I changed my routine I used a lot of Kiehls products in my routine, I love the brand."
