Joan Collins: Beauty line is a dream come true

Dame Joan Collins feels relaxed when applying her make-up.

The British legend, whose younger sister Jackie sadly just lost her battle with breast cancer, famously learnt her beauty tips from Marilyn Monroe's make-up artist Allan 'Whitey' Snyder. His advice was so good, 82-year-old Joan still applies her own cosmetics to this day.

This love of make-up eventually led to her own line, Joan Collins Timeless Beauty (, which launched last year.

"Creating a make-up and beauty line has been on my radar for years, however it is a very complicated process to put together from start to finish and you need a huge team with so many skills to do it right. My team is extensive and I couldn’t have done it without them – I have designers, chemists, and experts whom specialise in the make-up industry. I know a lot about beauty but nobody knows everything about everything," Joan exclusively told Cover Media, before Jackie passed.

The line features all Joan's must haves, including 12 shades of lipstick each with a matching nail varnish.

As well as being able to wear the exact products Joan does, the queen of glamour is more than happy to dish her best beauty advice.

"My top tip would be to always look after your skin. I adhere to this by moisturising before applying my make-up, removing my make-up correctly every morning and night using a vigorous cleansing regime, keeping myself out of the sun and enjoying applying my make-up – this is vital. You need to find pleasure in it, for me I find it relaxing," she revealed.
