ON STYLE

Drag Race honey Vanity Milan had our favourite tip of the night: when asked about her style secret, she said, 'Get the tatas out, show some skin and live your best life'. That’s something we can defs get behind 👏 For Love Island champ (and ex-ASOSer) Millie, a good outfit is key to a good night. 'I feel most beautiful when I’m in a banging outfit. Fashion for me is the thing that makes me feel really good.' Keep your eyes peeled for more Millie-approved ASOS outfits v soon 👀

Talking about banging outfits... Presenter and DJ Harriet Rose certainly showed off her style credentials in an amazing ASOS smock dress (shop something similar here). She got real with us tho about what NOT to do at a big event: 'Don’t touch your clothes or face. I tend to smudge or make myself look like I have a wedgie. All sorts of things that just aren’t very glam.' Some sound advice before your next night out 📸

ON CONFIDENCE

If anyone knows how to work a carpet, it’s Darkwah. They’re such a natural in front of a camera (night-out us could never). But how do they do it? 'Act like you’re taking pictures with your best friend. That way you feel confident and comfortable.' Noted 💕

Some more amazing advice comes courtesy of Rihanna (well, via YouTuber Elz the Witch). Her words of wisdom to people feeling nervous at a big event are: 'Always have fun and try and be comfortable. I try and embody Rihanna because she says even if you don’t feel comfortable, fake it until you feel better.' If it works for Elz and Riri 🤷‍♀️

ON BEAUTY

Drag Race winner Krystal Versace told us her top makeup tip: 'You know the laminated brow? Just use a purple glue stick to get that shine. And my best trick is using tape, which I haven’t done very well today. WHOOPS.' She’s being modest – her makeup looked *perfection* – as did the ASOS Luxe dress she wore.

 

As well as letting us in on her 8-step lash routine, Avni (from the amazing TikTok/Insta duo @iconicakes) shared her best beauty tip: 'I love using tape for liner. I don’t really have steady hands and neither does she [points at her sister Sara], so we need it.' Steal her trick by using the Revolution Cosmetic Tape next time you're getting ready.

Amber Gill

Content creator and makeup queen Alice Thomas has sooo many beauty secrets, but her fave is putting 'loose setting powder on my sponge, pressing it into my hand first and then under my eyes. It makes it nice and bright.' The Laura Mercier setting powder is always an ASOS go-to.

 

Then, we chatted to the award's presenter AJ Odudu, who let us in on her simple secret to gorgeous skin: 'Plenty of rich moisturiser before bedtime!'. Try hydrating heroes like Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream or Sunday Riley’s Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream. After more Face + Body recommendations? 2019 Love Island winner Amber Gill let us in on some of her faves: 'Oh, forever Phillip Kingsley‘s Elasticiser Extreme for my curls and the NARS Liquid Blush all day, every day'.
