Beauty tips from Alesha Dixon

As Strictly Come Dancing makes its way back onto screens for its 2010 season, we are reminded of two things: the first is that Christmas is around the corner (frightening) and the second is that Alesha Dixon is really quite stunning. The Strictly judge, also singer, songwriter and dancer, is anti-airbrush (don’t you love that) and readily admits that celebs also need a helping hand in the beauty department – the star is more than willing to share her beauty secrets with fans.

Ms Dixon’s number one beauty tip is “always pluck and shape your eyebrows. They really frame your face. If you find someone who does threading, it lasts for ages.” The lovely Alesha confesses to be a lip-gloss fiend and reveals for us some of her favourite beauty products:

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream

Veet Hair Removal Strips

Elmis Pro Collagen Body Cream

Elemis Skin Calm Facial

Frederic Fekkai Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner

Frederic Fekkai Straightening Balm

Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf

Burberry Brit for Her

Not only is the star willing to share her beauty secrets with readers but Alesha even parts with some of her mum’s expert beauty advice; “if you’re happy on the inside you will always look beautiful – so do things that make you happy!” A mum’s advice should always be taken seriously – do things to please ourselves… no promlemo!
