Best known for her no-nonsense attitude on cult noughties show What Not To Wear, these days Trinny Woodall is something of a social media superstar.
Boasting more than 500,000 followers on Instagram, she shares her style, skin and make-up advice in hugely popular videos.
After spotting a gap in the market, Trinny launched her eponymous brand Trinny London in 2017.
The ethos is simple but effective, encouraging customers to swap bulky make-up bags for curated ‘stacks’ – portable, stackable pots of high-tech cosmetics.
We caught up with Trinny to chat all things beauty, and find out which products she just can't be without...
Trinny Woodall’s beauty secrets
1. Hair by Sam McKnight Lazy Girl Dry Shampoo
"For hair, I love Sam McKnight Dry Shampoo, but as a texturizing spray not as a dry shampoo," says Trinny.
"Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam is incredibly good too as it gives texture to your hair without feeling sticky.
"I’ve got slightly frizzy hair and always get it blow-dried so I just need something to zhoosh it when it gets a little flat".

2. Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion
"A lot of women who have dry skin don’t exfoliate but Ameliorate exfoliates as it hydrates," says Trinny.
"It’s brilliant because it’s got some fruit acids in it, it’s reasonably priced and you can really feel the tingle for fresh, glowing, soft skin.
"If you exfoliate first anything you put on afterwards is going to go in".

3. Trinny London Flush Blush Blusher (opens in new tab), £20
"‘Where do you get your energy from?’ is the question I am asked the most," says Trinny. "For me it’s all about looking in the mirror and not feeling tired.
"All the products that I design for women have that in mind.
"I use blush a lot to give life to my skin, more than bronzer, because I think it’s still allows the shape of your face to come out".

4. The Light Salon Boost Hydrogel Face Mask (opens in new tab), £42 for pack of 3 (£14 each)
"I’ve been using The Light Salon Boost Advanced LED Mask for the last year and I love it," says Trinny.
"They also have a Hydrogel Face Mask that goes with it to hydrate and brighten.
"I find that with consistent use my skin is just so much better. It really does leave it glowing".
5. DCL C Scape High Potency Night Booster 30 (opens in new tab), £108
"I’ll look at my skin in the evening and think, ‘in the morning do I want to feel like tackling those lines or do I want to feel I’m getting a glow?’," says Trinny.
"I alternate a prescription retinol called Tretinoin with DCL C Scape High Potency Night Booster - I’m quite obsessed with unbelievable vitamin C.
"Once you’re in your 40s or 50s, these kind of products are so important to help collagen rebuild in our skin.
"For me, I’m always looking for how can I keep my skin feeling bouncy and plump".
