Alexa Chung sleeps with make-up on

Model and style maven Alexa Chung prefers a low-maintenance beauty regime and only wears eyeliner and lip balm when she is off duty.

Alexa Chung sleeps with her make-up on as she always wants to go to bed looking like "a babe".

The British model and TV personality has opened up about her beauty secrets and explained that her daily skincare regime is about being as efficient as possible.

“I sometimes wash my face, but that’s kind of rare. I wash it in the shower in the morning," she told

While admitting she doesn't wash her face most nights, low-maintenance Alexa also claims to have a good reason for skipping the night time cleanse.

"I want to go to bed looking like a babe. I don’t want to go to bed with no make-up on," she said.

However, the 32-year-old is beginning to take skincare a little more seriously now that that she is getting older and likes to use beauty oils from Sisley, Decleor, and Glossier when her face is feeling dehydrated.

Of her typical make-up routine, Alexa notes that she likes to use a touch of Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold on her cheeks for a hint of colour, a thin flick of Eyeko black liquid liner to achieve her signature look as well as a swipe of Lucas' Papaw Ointment on lips.

But what Alexa is really passionate about is her new style app, called Villoid - described as a cross between Pinterest and Instagram.

Speaking about the app, which allows users to create fashion mood boards which can be linked to affiliate sites, Alexa views it as an opportunity to democratise fashion. She would also like to see it embraced by more beauty brands.

"It’s a platform for self-expression, communication, and fun, essentially, but should you want to buy anything, you can!" she smiled.
