X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger never looks anything short of flawless on screen and that's because she has talented make-up artist Emma Osborne on hand to glam her up every weekend.

On Sunday, (20 November), Nic - who wowed us at the Moana premiere only days before - gave us heaps upon heaps of make-up envy as she stepped out on to the panel rocking gorgeously glowing skin and a set of killer lashes - but it was her pillar box red lip that really stole the show.

Aaaaand pout.

Now, a lot of celebrity make-up artists keep their beauty secrets to themselves, but because Emma is a girl after our own heart, she spilled the beans!

Unlike the rest of our favourite MUAs, Emma put her Kylie Jenner Lip Kit to one side (we know, gasp!) and picked up M.A.C's new Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, £17.50 to dress Nicole's smackers.

The shade in question? Beauty blogger-approved Chateau M, of course - and our top tip? Give your lips at least two coats before heading out the door and it won't budge an inch - promise.

To make sure Nicole's lips were on point all throughout the evening, Emma prepped them with the Instant Effects Instant Plumper, £24.99 to smooth away any lines or parched patches and to give her already juicy lips some extra pillowy definition.

If a glossy pout is your thing, apply an extra swipe on top. We love the precision lip brush!

And if you're in search of a smoother than smooth complexion a la Scherzy, be sure to land your hands on the bareMinerals Mineral Veil powder, £21.

Simply dust over your T-Zone after applying foundation to prevent that dreaded shine. Yep, even celebs get oily.

Now, er, if you need us, we'll be in front of the mirror!
