Cheryl switches up her makeup look for a very good reason

New job, new look!

Ever since it was announced that Cheryl would be returning to our screens as a judge on new BBC talent show The Greatest Dancer, we've been super excited to find out what the show will involve. And, of course, we want to know what fashion and makeup looks she'll be rocking – her X Factor outfits used to be a highlight of the live shows every week. And on Tuesday the 35-year-old used her Instagram Stories to give us a sneak peak of her new bold eye makeup look – and we love it.

Cheryl shared this snap on her Instagram stories

In the image, Cheryl is seen wearing a dramatic look consisting of smokey black on the top lid and a bronzey red below the eye, fanned out towards the outer corner. She teamed the look with a nude shade on the brow bone, strongly defined brows and a glossy nude lip. The red and black combo could accidentally look a bit "halloween" if done wrong, but Cheryl’s strong, dark features (and her MUA's skill!) mean she pulls it off with ease.

Earlier this week, Cheryl looked absolutely incredible showing off her lithe frame and toned stomach in a leather trousers and crop top combo as she made her debut on the all-star judging panel alongside Glee star Matthew Morrison and Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse. The trio will make up the Dance Captains who will be on the search to find the nation's next best dancer.

The new role must be a welcome distraction for Cheryl from her recent break-up with boyfriend Liam Payne. She announced her involvement with the show on Instagram, writing: "Hi, I've got some exciting news. I am going to be joining the new show called The Greatest Dancer for BBC1. I am going to be joining Oti and Matthew as a dance captain and Alesha and Jordan will be hosting. Stay tuned for more news to my Instagram." Alesha Dixon and Jordan Banjo will host the Saturday primetime show, which is due to air in 2019.
