Make-up goes beyond the pale

When I meet Nicola Roberts to hear about the re-launch of her make-up range, Dainty Doll, she tells me this is not another celebrity beauty line.

She’s right to suggest it’s different: Dainty Doll is Nicola’s personal crusade to bring the right shades of make-up to the alabaster-skinned, and the range includes four of the palest foundation shades you’ll find (they’re heaven-sent for English roses, two of whom sit on the ELLE beauty desk including me). There are colours to play with too – lipsticks named after song lyrics (including one, It’s My Party, £12, a bright fuschia which I can’t wait to get my hands on), and the amazing Wonderbalm in Working Girl, £20, a light-reflecting-use-it-anywhere balm. This is a hero product and Roberts’ top tip is to dab onto cheekbones for a really gorgeous highlighted glow, whether you’re pale or not. 

 

Nicola’s range is in-store today at Harrods, with Nicola making an appearance at 12.30pm on the fourth floor.
