We caught up with Mollie King, singing sensation and ambassador of Maybelline for Vodafone London Fashion Weekend, to steal her latest beauty tips and tricks. Pens at the ready!

Collaborating with Maybelline

I've always been a huge fan of the brand so I'm so excited! I got to choose my favourite Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivids Lipstick, which is Fuschia Flash, £7.19 (available nationwide). I absolutely love it because you can just whack it on for a simple day look and leave the rest of your make-up quite natural.

Fashion week fever

This season I wasn't able to go to fashion weeks as I was busy working. But last season I was able to attend – I always love the Burberry show!

The new season trend she'll be wearing

I love the big pink coat trend at the moment – it's everywhere. I like wearing my pink coat with my pink Maybelline lipstick to really play up the pink theme.

Her make-up staples

I like to mix up my make-up routine. I love a black eyeliner and playing with different lipstick colours.

Handbag essentials

I can't live without my L’Oréal Paris Duo Glam Bronzer, my phone, and Maybelline's Baby Lips lip balm. I keep Maybelline's Brow Drama with me too - it’s like a mascara for the brows.

Skin secrets

I always try and stay as dewy as possible. You have to be really careful to not over powder, because once you've put powder on, it's hard to remove.

Guilty pleasures

I’m addicted to coffee. I love a soya cappuccino and I have about four a day.

Staying fit

I go to Bodyism, a bespoke gym in the Bulgari Hotel. The trainers there really understand my schedule and sometimes I can be there three times a week and other times I won’t be there for a month, it’s really up and down.

Top treats

I try to eat healthy but I do like to indulge. My favourite meal is fish and veg topped off with a chocolate fudge cake at the end. When I'm busy I stick to coffee, water and eating regularly, whether it’s in a cab on the way to the next show.

Mascara must-have

I swear by Great Lash Mascara. It was the first mascara that I ever used because the Olsen twins said they used it.

Her top skin tip

Take your makeup off at night to let your skin breath. With the amount of make-up I wear with work it’s so important.

Her desert island pick

I love L’Oréal Paris's Cleansing Oil because it's so gentle on my skin.

On swapping beauty advice with The Saturdays

We share tips but we don’t actually share products as we all have very different skin tones. It's good because we are never squabbling over the same products!

Party prep

I am always the last to get ready, not because I take the longest, I’m just always late!

Her beauty icon

I love Bridget Bardot. I have a massive picture of her in my house. I probably shouldn't keep it up because I look at it everyday and think how amazing she is and how I would like to look like her.

Her hair secrets

I use Babyliss' Curl Secret because it’s so easy to use and there's no need for tongs. Elnett hairspray is my go-to product to hold my hair in place.

Brow rules

I do really like a thick brow and I love Cara [Delevingne]’s brows. EF
