Jessie Ware's mother gives her make-up advice.

The 30-year-old singer admits her glamorous parent always urges her and her actress sister Hannah Ware to wear more cosmetics and says she ''loves'' the look she has when her mum suggests what to do with her hair and lips.

She said: ''She used to drop us at school with perfectly applied red lipstick. She has amazing skin and she constantly tells us to wear more make-up.

''When I did the 'Late Late Show with James Corden', my mum instructed the make-up artist to give me a red lip and leave my hair down - I loved it.

Jessie also believes contouring is the key to looking good, and thinks the lighting conditions when applying the cosmetics are particularly important.

She told Glamour magazine: ''On stage I can get away with more make-up because of the bright lights.

''I don't feel finished unless I have a bit of contouring but it can go so wrong - you don't want it to look like fancy-dress make-up. I've had to learn to master it.

''A pen is easy to put in your bag. My tip is blend, blend, blend. And have good lighting when you do it.''
