Lucy Mecklenburgh can get ready in 15 minutes.

The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has insisted she doesn't take long to apply her make-up for a day out, only adding a bit of bronzer, mascara and lipstick.

She said: ''I love evening make-up especially and I'll always attempt a smoky eye with the Sunkissed eye palette - dramatic looks are the most fun. I'll use the bronzer to buff my cheeks and to contour for a little more definition.

''For a daytime look, it takes me literally 15 minutes to get ready! I'll dust on a bit of bronzer, some mascara and a pink or coral toned lipstick to finish the look.''

And the 24-year-old beauty has admitted her biggest beauty splurge was on her tattooed eyebrows.

When asked what was her most costly beauty purchase, she shared: ''Probably my semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo! They are so much easier and I don't have to pencil in my sparse hairs everyday.''

And if Lucy is having a bad day, she tries new make-up tricks or exercises to improve her mood.

She told Reveal magazine: ''If I'm having a bad day I'll always have a workout and it's amazing to know that Results With Lucy helped other girls feel the way I do now.

''Also it's good to spend a little more time on your make-up, maybe adding a bit of contouring or colour into your regime. Little things like that can make a whole lot of difference!''
