If singer and Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha is heading out for the night, then she's not leaving the house without this...

Last week we caught up with Alesha Dixon at Flormar’s first birthday bash at The Crypt at Christ Church, and there was one thing we really wanted to know: what does the gorgeous pop starlet stash in her clutch bag when she’s hitting the town for a girly night out?

“I’m quite basic when I go out. I’m quite a simple girl like that,” she reveals. “But I’ll usually bring along a lipgloss.”

But along with her lippie, there’s one product Alesha always keeps in her clutch.

“My Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream,” she tells us. “It’s just brilliant for everything.” And by everything she means nixing chapped lips and dry skin; making it perfect for mid-party bathroom touch-ups.

Chatting about her beauty routine more generally, she explains how beauty starts on the inside.

“With beauty, we live in a society which focuses so much on the exterior but actually if we take care of the inside, that’s the most important thing, and all the hair and the makeup that we love to play around with, that’s just the icing on the cake,” she explains.

If you walk around with a smile on your face and you have that inner joy, that shines through.

Aside from eating right (Alesha says she follows a clean diet 90% of the time but allows herself treats like chocolate and pizza in moderation too) getting plenty of sleep and drinking “buckets and buckets of water”, Alesha says beauty is all about your attitude.

“It’s all down to your mindset and how you are as a person,” she offers. “If you walk around with a smile on your face and you have that inner joy, that shines through. People see it in your eyes.”

A big smile and a positive attitude? Now that’s some deadly beauty advice we can really get behind.
