Style icon and national treasure Holly Willoughby is our go-to for all things fashion and beauty. Not a day goes by where the TV presenter doesn’t look immaculately, and quite frankly, we want in. That’s why, we were pleased to her the star reveal her desert island beauty items during a podcast interview this week. And even more over the moon when we discovered just how purse-friendly they all are.
Speaking on the Beauty Full Lives podcast with Madeleine Spencer, Holly revealed that there are four beauty products she simply can’t live without. First up, a £12 Caudalié Beauty Elixir facial spray which she uses every morning before applying make up. Secondly, she swears by a £8 eyebrow pencil from Lily Lilo to fill her brows in before applying her go-to eyeliner, Eyeko’s Waterproof Shadow Liner priced at £18. Finally, she uses a £9.99 Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Blush Basin and voila, she’s good to go.
The mother-of-three recently launched a new fashion collection with high street giant Marks & Spencer, after cemented her status as a wardrobe envy-inducing Instagram fashionista over the past year. However, Holly is the first to admit that she hasn’t always been as confident as she appears today.
Talking on the podcast, the ITV star explained that it was her first job in modelling at the age of 14 that really boosted her confidence. ‘I really think it helped me come out of my shell, because I wasn’t the most confident person at school,’ she said. ‘All my school friends still can’t understand how I’m doing the job that I’m doing because they’re like, “You were the one with your sleeve pulled down over your hand and your jumper over your mouth because you were too scared to look anyone in the eye.”
Well, she has certainly come a long way.
