Kimberley Walsh is definitely a girl after our own heart. The 31-year-old songstress is a huge fan of high-street beauty buys, believing there really is no need for women to splash out on pricier cosmetics when the local shops are so jam-packed with amazing beauty treats. "You don`t need to spend a fortune on expensive beauty products to look and feel great. Everyday beauty basics such as Scholl, Clearasil, Veet, Optrex and E45 will help you glow from top to toe.”
What’s more, Kimberley was today named as the face and body of the Ready To Glow campaign, which has been launched by a number of cosmetic brands including Scholl and Veet, to promote natural, everyday beauty basics. We couldn’t think of anyone better than fresh-faced Kim to head the campaign- with her toned and tanned skin, we’ve always admired her natural beauty looks.
Kimberley said, "When you've got your glow, you feel confident, flawless and ready to take on whatever the day throws at you!" So, you can imagine how eager we were to delve deep into Miss Walsh’s make-up bag to find out the secrets behind her relentlessly glowing complexion. Read on and learn, ladies. Read on and learn…
