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.
Shes right to suggest its different: Dainty Doll is Nicolas personal crusade to bring the right shades of make-up to the alabaster-skinned, and the range includes four of the palest foundation shades youll find (theyre 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, Its My Party, £12, a bright fuschia which I cant 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 youre pale or not.
Nicolas range is in-store today at Harrods, with Nicola making an appearance at 12.30pm on the fourth floor.
