Amanda has been the face of Charles Worthington since 2021 and regularly uses all their products. Last year she told us: "I'm delighted to be Charles Worthington's ambassador. I’ve known and used the products for many, many years, and having been around for 25 years, they have a wealth of experience I completely trust. They have a real understanding of women my age, my hair and what we need going forward."

The blonde beauty uses a variety of foundations, but sings the praises of one in particular, and it's by Tarte. The brand's 'Rainforest of the Sea' water foundation is super light in texture, yet still offers a full coverage base.

The star told HELLO! her skincare saviour is the 'Elemis Pro Collagen Rose Hydro Mist' and we're obsessed with it too. She said: "With my early morning starts for radio, my makeup can sometimes dry out by the end of the day so I like to keep this hydrating mist handy in my bag to refresh my makeup and give my skin a little boost."

Amanda's makeup artist Karin Darnell often shares her expert makeup tricks she uses on the TV star on Instagram. Speaking about her dewy glow, she previously said: "Everyone’s been asking about Amanda highlighter; here’s the reveal… it’s 'Iconic London Illuminator'."

Amanda may be in her 50s, but her skin is super smooth and youthful. Karin also once said she uses Caudalie's 'Premier Cru' range on her famous client and it's easy to see why. The ultra-moisturising range is packed with an impressive ingredients list and it helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
