With cheekbones you could shave parmesan on and otherworldly glowing skin, we're all dying know what Ellie Bamber's favorite makeup products are.

Bamber is one of Britain's hottest acting talents having starred in Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals, BBC1’s version of Les Miserables, The Trial of Christine Keeler, and of course, The Serpent, which is on our screens right now.

In the new serial killer drama, Bamber plays the wife of Dutch diplomat Herman Knippenberg and the pair travel to Thailand to seek out the infamous Charles Sobhraj and Marie-Andrée Leclerc. On screen she may be bare-faced in the Bangkok heat but in real life the actress like to be more playful and gives her cheeks a healthy flush of colour with blush

"I don't like to wear too much makeup on my face but I'm obsessed with the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Sticks in peachy and pink tones along with the Baume Essentiel highlighter," she says.

Still erring on the side of natural, the Sheer Colour Sticks create a luminous velvet finish with a hint of colour expertly meshed to the skin thanks to the beeswax in the formula. There's no tacky or stickiness to the finish, either,  as it dries down to a light, powdery finish. Apply the stick directly to cheekbones, then blend in with fingertips, using circular movements. Smooth towards the temples to lift facial features. 

Meanwhile, the Baume Essential is basically a multi-use glow stick that reflects light off cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, Cupid's bow and eyelids. The bona fide luminous finish is down to a lack of glitter in the formula.

As a Chanel ambassador, the brand features heavily in her makeup bag, with Le Volume de Chanel mascara another firm favourite on freshly curled top lashes.  

We think even Angela Knippenberg would approve of this low-maintenance glamorous look...
