'Beauty is not just for the young' Joan Collins shares her make-up secrets
SHE is the epitome of glamour and now Hollywood legend Joan Collins has revealed how you can look good at any age
Screen legend Joan Collins OBE is best known for playing Alexis Carrington Colby in 1980s soap Dynasty.
The legendary star has enjoyed a long, lustrous career having appeared in more than 55 feature films - alongside the likes of Richard Burton and Gene Kelly - and has written a number of books.
Now Joan is turning her attention to the beauty industry.
The Hollywood star has created Joan Collins Timeless Beauty, which offer "products of exceptional quality that are highly effective, practical to use and add glamour to the day to day of life".
She told us: "Beauty is not just for the young. I believe with a little care and attention any woman can look good through her 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond.
"Looking good and feeling great is the right of every woman no matter how old she is. Beauty is timeless."
As the party seasons draws closer, time-saving make-up tips can be crucial in quickly enhancing a look ready for festive celebrations.
Here Joan and her celebrity make-up artist friends share their top tips.
Joan pulls of a sexy, smokey eye like no one else. She believes a glam looks starts with good prep.
She says: "Eye make-up can transform a look and it starts with good preparation. I always start my day by using a hydrating and firming cream.
"I use my CONTRA TIME Superlift Eye Serum (£35) as it reduces dark circles, firms up skin around the eye, calms any puffiness and gives a visible lift to the eyelid too. If eyes are stressed, tired and dry, this is a great rescue product that can be applied over make-up."
Celebrity make-up artist Peter Camburn reveals how to build up the perfect party rather than Panda-eyes look.
"A misty grey eyeshadow is perfect for those who want to create a more dramatic smokey eye for the evening.
"Running a lighter shade below the eyebrow will really open up the eye, whereas a darker shade applied to the sockets creates depth."
For those who aren't a fan of eyeshadow, TV make-up artist Mikey Philips recommends trying a "60s flick".
"A 60s flick is a timeless party look. I love using Frame Line Eyeliner (£20) I love the pigment and staying power of this true black liquid liner.
"The precision wand allows the liner to glide effortlessly and helps to create the most perfect feline flick."
NAILS & LIPS
"I find that one of the easiest ways to create instant glamour is to match lipstick with nails," says Joan.
This Christmas she will be wearing Divine Lips lipstick in oxblood red Crystal shade (£18) together with the matching Nail Lacquer (£13).
Alyn Warermanm, who is Joan's on-set make-up arist, says it's important to use a moisturising product to avoid dry lips.
"I need a lipstick to last all day on a film set. I will use one of the Timeless Beauty Divine Lips lipsticks.
"There are beautiful shades that are both moisturising and long-lasting and provide professional, A-list results."
For those who want a less dramatic look, make-up artist Ruby Hammer suggests a high-shine lipgloss.
"A lipgloss adds an instant pop of glamour, makes lips look fuller and works well on all ages and it is perfect for a drink in the evening." See, joancollinsbeauty.com.
