British singer Cheryl might be an international superstar, but when we met up with her one morning during the 2013 Cannes International Film Festival in the ritzy Martinez hotel, our time together was as comfortable as if we were just girlfriends hanging out. During that window– before Cheryl put on her dress and began her hair and makeup preparations for that evening’s red carpet event– we managed to talk about makeup and beauty on the inside.
CRC: What are the beauty products you cannot live without?
Cheryl: My telescopic mascara, because if you feel tired or if you look a bit rough after a long day’s work, a bit of mascara can make you feel a lot better.
CRC: Do you have any good beauty tips you would like to share with us?
Cheryl: I make sure that I wash my face every night and thoroughly moisturise because that’s when your skin rejuvenates overnight and you have all those hours of just resting and not being exposed to any elements. Don’t sleep in your make-up because it blocks your pores. Just be sensible really, take care of your skin.
CRC: What advice would you give to women to help them feel beautiful every day?
Cheryl: You can use all the make-up that you like but it comes from inside. As much as people say that’s a cliché, it’s so true. If you feel beautiful on the inside, it shows on the outside and the mascara enhances that beauty. So, you have to be happy with you, you know, which is not always easy but you’ve got to try.
CRC: What does the Cannes Film Festival mean to you?
Cheryl: It’s glamour at its highest, you know, beauty, glamour, celebratory. It’s just a really amazing thing to be a part of.
CRC: What does being a L’Oréal Paris ambassador at Cannes mean to you?
Cheryl: It means that I feel like I have a really good rapport with women from the UK, especially, and my fan base. It just means that I get to talk to them directly. And you asking me for helpful beauty tips– I love, I can share those. I’ve been in the industry for ten years now so I’ve picked up a lot of tips along the way. It’s just really a perfect relationship that I have with L’Oréal Paris, so it’s fantastic.
CRC: In your make-up bag for Cannes, what would we find?
Cheryl Cole: You will find Telescopic mascara. I also have a new colour riche lipstick. It actually says collection by me! So yeah, and you will also find tissues… cotton buds. Cotton buds are always good if your eyeliner has gone a bit wonky, a cotton bud can correct that so I always have those. Um, bronzer, I have this bronzer compact, actually, that is half light, half dark to use to contour, (in a hushed voice) I like a bit of contour. So yeah, that’s about it.
CRC: What would your perfect red carpet make-up be?
Cheryl: It depends on what you’re wearing. So sometimes if you’re dressed a certain way, I’d say you have to kind of go for the alternative. So if you’re dress is full-on, sparkles, glitz, glamour, everything, then your make-up needs to be toned down and your hair needs to be toned down because if you do too much of everything, it’s not nice. So, if your dress is simple, you can go crazy with the hair and crazy with the make-up. It really depends on what your wearing. And what you’re feeling on the day, too! Sometimes, I might just want to go crazy and have diamonds and glitz and crazy hair. And the weather’s not very inspiring today, but we’ll get there!
And get there she did.
Cheryl has made her way to the annual Cannes Film Festival, as part of being an ambassador for L’Oreal Paris.
The journey got to a rocky start last night, as she landed at the airport. Her PR Lily tweeted about the flight:
Cheryl literally crying with laughter at how scared @garrytweedy and @supersonicpr were of the turbulence #cruelsister #wasfunnythough #mystomachhurtsfromlaughingtoomuch
Pictures of Cheryl at the airport can be found [HERE]
Today, she has been interviewed by L’Oreal and French media. Cheryl tweeted how she was lucky to be doing them:
Talking about L’Oreal all day.. and they call this a job?? I’m a lucky girl!! #Cannes2013
More twitpics from the interview can be found [HERE]
Before the big moment, all the L’Oreal Paris Ambassadors met and were photographed together!
Megan Gale, Doutzen Kroes, Eva Longoria, Cheryl and Jane Fonda,
And finally the moment we have all been waiting for, the red carpet!

“Dear @kimkardashian. Hi Gorgeous lady! Just wanted to send you a tweet to say I think you are an incredibly beautiful woman inside and out.. I can only imagine how tough it is to be heavily pregnant and feeling extremely vulnerable on top of some of the daily criticism you take! I admire your tenacity and send you my best wishes with the rest of your pregnancy #enjoyyourblessing x”
Kim was quick to respond back:
“@CherylCole your message really touched me! Thank you so much for the support & positivity! Its so important for women to feel confident & at peace during this amazing time! Your sweet tweet really made me smile! Xoxo “
Who knew Cheryl was a ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ fan!
Inundated with tweets from fans worrying over their exams, Cheryl tweeted some advice.
So many of u stressing over your exams which is completely understandable but let me give you a little advice….
No amount of worrying or loosing sleep will change the outcome that I promise..
All you can do is your best. If you’re unsure ask someone who knows for help and make yourself sure …
She also attached the amusing picture above and wrote
Also, Reduce your use of twitter until its done !!!! Lol! It works.. No distractions #goodluck
That is all..
Cheryl has been confirmed to attend this years Cannes Film Festival.
It takes place from 15th – 26th May.
She has always been seen wearing white whilst in Cannes, but maybe after the red nail polish incident she spoke about in an interview last year, she may think twice about a white dress this year!
Cheryl and Kimberley have placed in this years FHM’s Top 100 Sexiest Women in the World listing.
The list was compiled by public votes on their website.
Cheryl ranked at #9 dropping from the #2 placing she had last year.
Kimberley waltzed in at #30 which is great considering she last appeared in the list in 2009. This years placing is her highest so far.
Unfortunately the other girls didn’t get into the list. Maybe next year, when the public open their eyes wider, aye!

In celebration of her autobiography, My Story, going from hardback to paperback, Cheryl talked us through the highlights of her career from those heady days on Popstars: The Rivals to her Hollywood cameo. But most recently, she took to the stage for ‘Ten: The Hits’ tour just before the announcement that Girls Aloud would be splitting, a decade after the girl band was first formed.
So what was it like to reunite on stage? ‘It’s an indescribable feeling – we’ve lived and breathed each other for years,’ Chezza told us. ‘It’s a chemistry that you will never have with anybody else… It was just like a big party, the whole tour. It was really special actually.’
As for the emotional final performance, Cheryl reveals she shed a tear the night before. ‘It really hit you hard and I couldn’t stop once I’d started the flood gates. It was the fans actually – there was a few at the front crying because we had a montage behind that was a story of the ten years and once I’d gone, I didn’t stop for the whole of the last two songs.’
After sharing so much together, Cheryl says there are many stand out moments, from growing up together to winning a BRIT Award. ‘If you could listen in on some of the conversations we had over the past few months reminiscing… There’s been some really special moments. We laughed and cried over some of the memories on this tour.’
So what’s next for our Chez? Although she was planning to release a third single from her second solo album before the Girls Aloud tour, she decided to dedicate herself completely to the band. Once the tour was wrapped up and GA’s split was confirmed, Cheryl jetted off for a relaxing holiday with her new man, Tre Holloway, when she took the opportunity to entirely relax and switch off. ‘I haven’t really planned to do anything next which is actually strange and daunting and kind of okay. I’d planned to not plan and it’s actually really nice. I’m just taking a break now.’ Lord knows she deserves it.
