How I get ready: Jane Seymour

First I shower and exfoliate. I am a great believer in taking all the dead skin cells off – I exfoliate my face twice a day and my body once a day. Then I put on body cream to plump up the skin.

My hair comes down to my boobs and I wash it every day. I have it coloured every three weeks and change shampoos and conditioners all the time. Once my hair is dry I put in big Velcro rollers, while I do my makeup, which keep my hair smooth and give movement.

I do my makeup in natural light. I use different foundations, depending on what I am doing, and eyes are really important. I go for brown and taupe, sometimes grey and black, depending on how big I want to make my eyes. I never use colour. I do my own eyelashes, even if I am on a movie. I like individual lashes and I am really quick at putting them in. If I put the lashes on first and then mascara my own into them, no one can even tell I’ve false lashes on.

I tend to wear body hugging clothes – I work out so I feel I’ve earned the right – and red is my go to colour. I also like white, especially in summer, because white reflects light on your face and makes you look younger. I mostly wear dresses. Boxy things don’t suit me and I don’t wear patterns because I’m quite small – 5ft 4in – and look better in one colour. I have a long back and a long neck so when I sit down I am as tall as somebody who’s six foot something, but my legs are not as long.

The one thing that I wish I had is an extra two inches from knee to ankle but when I wear high heels, especially nude ones, I achieve that.
