Get the Look: Cheryl’s Daytime Smoulder

Get the Look - Cheryl Cole

Not only is wor Cheryl a 'natural, born entertainer', she's also a bonafide babe who knows the perfect formula for sexy, daytime smoulder. When she isn't delivering perfectly timed, heavily accented put downs to sidekick/nemesis SiCo, she's crying Dumbo-worthy drops of sympathy, or laughing so hard that the happiness shines from her beautiful face like a sunbeam - hypnotising a nation of X Factor aficionados, who're all delighted that the Geordie princess (and her dimples) have returned to TV screens.

Want to channel Chezza's go-to look? She isn't one to shy away from coverage, so equip yourself with Face Atelier's {Ultra Foundation}, which effortlessly hides a multitude of s(k)ins to lend a flawless, long-wear finish. Define brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills {Brow Powder Duo} and {#12 Brush}, then focus your attention on creating lashings of lashes (for softening the stony hearts of po-faced music tycoons). Kevyn Aucoin's {Eye Lash Curler} is the best, and for maximum curl and volume, follow with 2-3 (4-5) coats of d.j.v. Beautenizer's {Volume Lash}.

Line and define eyes using NudeStix {Magnetic Eye Pencil} in Night - a twinkling jet black - smudging a little to soften. Then use NudeStix {Lip and Cheek Pencil} in shade Whisper − a perfect peachy pink nude - to lend a subtle dewy flush to cheeks. Daniel Sandler's {Sculpt and Slim} is ideal for creating believable daytime definition, before the look is finished with a slick of beige-toned lipstick such as Kevyn Aucoin's {The Expert Lip Colour} in Saylair, or Stila Cosmetics {Lip Glaze} in Honeysuckle (for those who like a bit more gloss). Et why aye (we think it means 'voila' in Northern)!
