X-Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger reveals her favourite beauty and fitness secrets It’s yet to be confirmed whether Nicole, 39, will be returning to the X Factor panel.
Meanwhile, the star is working on her own projects and will also feature on an album to mark Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 70th birthday after winning rave reviews for her stint as Grizabella in Cats.
Here, Nicole reveals her favourite beauty products, top tips and how she stays in shape… What are the beauty products you swear by? I love coconut oil – I use it as a moisturiser for everything.
My favourite brand is Kopari Beauty.
They have a range of coconut creams, oils, glows… you name it! I’m also really into Charlotte Tilbury – the Wonderglow is really easy to apply.
Tom Ford is another favourite because, well, who doesn’t love him! What’s your top beauty tip? I try to get as much sleep as possible.
When I don’t get the ideal amount, I try to drink as much water as possible and get a good sweat in just to feel atmy best.
Laughing and having fun are also so important for you to feel good about yourself, so just remember it’s never that serious!.
“Laughing and having fun are also so important for you to feel good about yourself, so just remember it’s never that serious!” What vitamin supplements are you taking at the moment and why? Perfectil is my go-to! I’ve been taking it for as long as I can remember.
It goes everywhere with me and it makes all the difference in making my hair and skin more radiant.
Have you been a fan of vitamins throughout your career? Yes, I’ve always been a believer in vitamins – it’s important for your hair, skin and nails, especially when you’re on the road.
I also make sure to get plenty of vitamins C and D.
What fragrances do you wear? My go-to is La Tulipe by Byredo.
It has notes of cyclamen, freesia and rhubarb.
I tend to enjoy anything with Hawaiian flowers in it.
I also just launched my own line, Chosen by Nicole Scherzinger.
It has notes of jasmine, creamy vanilla and patchouli, so I love it!.
How long do you spend getting ready for a night out? It depends on the event.
For a red-carpet day, it takes a few hours, but a casual dinner with close friends, I keep it as simple as possible since I try not to wear heavy make-up every day.
Having a new purse to throw on also just adds a bit of pizzazz.
Who are your favourite clothes designers and high-street shops? For high street, I like Rick Owens.
Michael Costello for my red-carpet looks, and Topshop and Zara in the UK.
What do you do when you want to pamper yourself? I enjoy long hot baths and listening to new music on Spotify – it’s my me time.
Deep-tissue massages are my all-time favourite – I have a masseuse travel from Hawaii once a month for a little extra pampering.
Do you wear make-up every day? I try not to wear make-up every day unless I have something important to do during the day.
I like to keep things simple when I do wear make-up and always put a lip on.
It’s so important to feel confident in your own skin to be at your best.
Do you do much exercise? Yes, I exercise as much as possible.
I have a new gym in my house in Los Angeles, which I’m really excited about.
I love to hike and do hot yoga – it just makes me feel extra glowing and great.
When I’m working in the UK, I enjoy running around Hyde Park.
What is your top tip for getting a great finish for your hair? I adore Justine Marjan.
She uses TRESemmé – it has a variety of products that help with creating all of my hairstyles, from long loose waves to a sleek look.
I know I can trust Justine because she always makes my hair look amazing, even if I want to switch it up at the last second!.
Who are your beauty and style inspirations and icons? I’m obsessed with J.
Lo’s glow – she looks so amazing and hasn’t aged at all.
My grandmother in Hawaii is always an inspiration.
She basically looks like my sister because of her use of coconut oil and natural products for her skin.
Do you diet or follow a particular eating plan at all? I don’t eat red meat and I also think a lot of spicy food is good for you.
Does your beauty routine change with the seasons? I listen to my body as much as possible to see what I’m lacking.
With the colder climates in winter, I tend to prioritise moisturising and staying hydrated more.
And I always have my Perfectil with me, no matter the season.
