Millie looked stunning as she hit the red carpet

Millie’s skin - Jules Heptonstall - St.Tropez Tanning & Skin Finishing Expert

Jules tells us: "Proper skin preparation is key before I start tanning so make sure everything is exfoliated. Millie is a huge fan of the St.Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Body Oil and Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil as they are both super hydrating and leave her skin sheer and glowing. I massaged both oils on to Millie's face and body to create a deep, luxurious bronzed look. You just apply the bottle on to the mitt and sweep it over the skin. Millie only needed one coat because she already had a base tan but to get Millie’s colour I would say use two coats.

"To ensure she’s red carpet ready we used illuminators on top. The oil has shimmer in it but to create that red carpet glow, I used powder illuninators over the top. I also applied lots of moisturiser because no-one wants to look like they have dry skin on the red carpet."

Hair - by Mark Hill

Mark Hill tells us: "Millie wanted something timelessly classic to ensure she stood out from the crowd and nothing says it better than a sleek and sophisticated svelte do. To create this, I spritzed my Party the Night Away Firm Hold Hairspray (£6.29) all over Millie’s hair to keep it tight and add a slight wet look for a contemporary twist. Next I created a side parting and gathered hair in a tousled twist at the nape of her neck. Step three I finished off the look with subtle grips to secure the low bun and perfected with another spritz of hairspray to keep everything in place."
