Laura Bailey: Make-up shouldn’t mask

The model knows what suits her and generally sticks to that formula. She doesn’t enjoy wearing heavy foundation as she thinks it masks her skin too much.

“I don’t like thick make-up. I prefer to have bare skin and put on lots of mascara,” she explained. “My perfume tastes fluctuate, but I always like a spritz of Chanel No. 19 – it was my first love!”

The star is a big fan of shoes and accessories though. She rarely leaves the house unless she has a pair of heels on and believes the right jewelry can finish off an outfit.

Laura insists that doesn’t mean you have to splash the cash on designer items though.

“I’m almost always in heels – if I’ve got a big event, Charlotte Olympia is great, as her designs are so comfy. For mucking about at home, I’ll put on my printed Nike for Liberty high tops,” she told the latest edition of UK InStyle.

“Today, I’ve got on a blue plastic necklace from Oxfam, which I share with my daughter. Charity shops are great places to scavenge for little treasures like scarves or jewelry.”
