Michelle Keegan has launched her latest collection for Lipsy

"Around Christmas I always keep my make-up quite similar – quite nude, bronzes and dewy skin," she told us at the launch of her new Lipsy London Loves Michelle collection. "For winter, especially for Christmas, I might add a bit of sparkle – a bit of a glittery eye or go a bit bolder with the lips and go for a red or plum shade.

She added: "Something a bit different – I like to change it up a bit for Christmas."

Renowned for her radiant complexion, Michelle confessed that she follows a few simple rules to maintain a healthy glow, especially during the colder months.

"I tend to wear a lot more moisturiser and do a bit more to look after my skin because of the colder weather," she revealed. "I always try to look after my skin because I get dry skin."

The 28-year-old shared her beauty and style tips for the festive season

"I always take off all of my make-up before bed," she continued. "Always. No matter what. It's the golden rule! Two nights a week I'll wear a facial mask at night. It's normally a Kiehl's overnight mask – but they also do a great hydration mask."

Always upping the style stakes whether she's on the red carpet or out and about with Mark, Michelle revealed that the secret to her effortlessly cool style comes from sticking to basics.

"I always go for an LBD just because you really can't go wrong with it. It can be styled with really cool shoes and you can be versatile with your make-up because you're wearing quite a plain dress. I feel at my most comfortable in something plain.

"For nights out, in the collection we've done an LBD with a really nice bronze gold lace placement, that's great for women and adds that extra special look for Christmas."

Michelle said she would love to see Cheryl Fernandez-Versini in her designs

With the new collection launching this month, Michelle revealed that she would love to see two of her biggest style icons rocking her designs.

"I've always said Cheryl Cole because I think she looks amazing whatever she wears, and I think she's got that Lipsy look, that feminine style," she told us. "Every girl loves her and she looks good in anything she puts on.

She added: "I'm also a massive fan of Jessica Alba – I just think she's amazing."

The Lipsy London Love Michelle collection is available at lipsylondon.com and across Lipsy Stores. It will be available from Next.co.uk and all Next international websites from 4th November.
