How Millie Mackintosh Went From Made In Chelsea Star To Beauty Icon Working With Umberto Giannini and St Tropez

05 July 2012 by

No longer just a reality star, Made in Chelsea's Mille Mackintosh has become a bonafide beauty icon. Not only is the Grazia Daily fave a makeup artist but she's also an ambassador for St Tropez, the face hair of Umberto Giannini and Manuka Doctor’s spokesperson.

Today, new photos have been released that show her with super-sexy waves created with Umberto Giannini’s Incredible Body range. The shots celebrate Millie's power to boost sales for the beauty brand. Bravo! Take a look at the gallery above to see her hair gorgeously tousled and her eyes smoky – yep, she looks hot.

Millie starred in her first campaign with Umberto Giannini in March this year, stripping down to her underwear for a comic strip and showing off her incredible body as well as her great hair, and with that, sales soared. A few weeks later her boyfriend Professor Green tweeted a pic of her hair looking amazing again in a super '60s beehive and a zillion copycats were born. So is this the beginning of The Millie Effect? It's hard to believe that just three years ago the Quality Street heiress was an unknown.

Despite damaging her hair as a teenager, with a packet dye which turned it bright orange, Millie is beauty mad! The obsession became clear when she starred in a YouTube beauty tutorial with blogger and friend, Tanya Burr in August 2011. The two demonstrated how to get a summer glow. It was at the same time that she started her beauty blog (defs worth checking out).

Then the star became the ambassador for St Tropez in May. In the campaign her mega tan is set off with '50s style white bikini, red lips and classic hair. She told Grazia Daily that having a tan was her beauty secret: “a tan always helps my skin to look perfectly flawless.” If only it was so simple for us mere mortals...
