GALLERY >> Nicole Scherzinger’s X Factor Beauty

Whilst the contestants are singing their hearts out every week for our viewing pleasure on The X Factor, we’re just as excited as seeing our favourite judge Nicole Scherzinger each weekend.

The solo singer and former Pussycat Doll has wow-ed us with her style every show and rocked some seriously cool makeup looks, too. Every Monday we’ll be chatting to Nicole’s very own Glam Team about how they put her look together.

This week, makeup artist Alex Babsky talks us through some of his favourite of Nicole’s looks - check them out in the gallery above...

Sunday 7 October

“During the week Nicole and her stylist Laury Smith go through potential outfits then Lori emails me the likely candidates and I construct makeup looks based around them. I draw out sketches and send them over with tear sheets I’ve used for inspiration. Generally these will be from catwalk looks, for example this strong lip was seen at Gucci shows.”

“Anything too bronzey doesn’t really suit Nicole’s skin tone so she likes a pop of colour, like this fabulous Bobbi Brown orange lipstick. It’s one of my favourite colours on her.”

Saturday 27 October

“The Halloween special was one of my favourite Nicole makeup looks. Usually it takes around an hour to do her makeup but this was slightly longer because of all the jet balck crystals I applied to her eyelids. She loved these and got so excited seeing them laid out but, actually, under the lights they look very subtle and just give a pretty glimmer to her eyes. The Julien MacDonald cat-suit she wore was very theatrical so I wanted the makeup to reflect that.”

Sunday 28 October

“After the dramatic look on Halloween night I wanted something quite subtle and pretty for the following night’s result show. I use a lot of Lancome on Nicole, it’s really flattering and effortless. So this is just a smokey eye and simple, pretty pink lip. Stunning.”
