Cheryl Cole's top red carpet tip is to always keep a pre-loaded blusher brush with her.

The 'Promise This' hitmaker is no stranger to movie premieres and glitzy red carpet parties, but always keeps a couple of emergency items of make up with her to ensure she stays looking fresh faced.

She said: "In my red carpet Clutch bag I keep eyeliner, of course. And lip gloss and sometimes I have a pre-loaded little blusher brush in the bag. It can make the inside of the bag a little dirty, but it's a good trick."

Cheryl also has a great number of dresses to pick from when it comes to dressing up for showbiz events, but has rules in place to stop her from taking too long to choose what to wear.

She added to Britain's OK! magazine: "I used to feel like it was good to have a lot of choice, but I don't now. You don't help yourself if you try on loads and think, 'maybe this one, maybe that one'. It just makes things complicated. If I like it, I like it, I'm not going to overload my brain over-thinking it.

"If I put on a dress and it works, I stick with it."
