Ashley Roberts was unveiled as the face of Sheer Cover Studio earlier this year
The 32-year-old, who was unveiled as the new face of Sheer Cover Studio earlier this year, revealed that performing on stage made it more difficult to get a natural look.
"When I'm performing I'm always wearing lots of make-up so I like something that feels lightweight, but still gives me coverage," she admitted. "Sheer Cover is made of bare minerals so it's more natural – I like it because I don't feel like I'm caked in make-up."
Ashley revealed her biggest beauty secret came from her mother
Ashley, who released her new single Woman Up earlier this year, also revealed that since embarking on a solo career she "loves playing with make-up" and trying looks outside of her comfort zone. "I like to play with different colours," she said. "I always flick through magazines to try and find inspiration."
"I love a bold lip on the red carpet," she continued. "Especially corals and bright red shades. I always go to MAC because they have really vibrant colours."
The former Pussycat Doll was make-up free in the jungle for I'm A Celebrity... Get me out of here!
The stunning blonde's natural beauty shone through when she participated in ITV's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2013, going make-up free during her time in the jungle. However, she admitted that her secret to flawless skin was passed down from her mum.
"My mama told me to drink lots of water," she revealed. "It cleanses you out, and keeps you hydrated. It's my number one tip!"
As well as doing hot yoga and the occasional juice cleanse, the Dancing on Ice judge admitted that to keep her skin glowing she follows a daily skincare regime.
"I always make sure to wash my face, moisturise and tone," she said. "I put on whatever makeup I need and go out. Usually I like concealer and a little bit of mascara. If I change my look it tends to be my lips!"
When it comes to beauty, Ashley admitted that she looks to Kate Hudson and Jennifer Lopez for inspiration. "They look amazing on the red carpet," she said. "They have glowing skin and I think that's so beautiful."
