Dame Joan Collins has come up with her list of three essential make-up items.

The first lady of glamour knows a thing or two about beauty and despite her A-list status prefers to do her own make-up.

Last year she launched cosmetics line Joan Collins Timeless Beauty, and now she has her eye on two of music and movie's biggest names to wear her offerings.

"I would LOVE to have Cate Blanchett wear my make-up and begin to love the Timeless Beauty range herself. Or Taylor Swift!" Joan confessed exclusively to Cover Media.

Most stars wouldn't be seen dead without their faces carefully made up, and Joan is no different. It's not just the outward appearance that's an important factor for the 82-year-old; it's also how make-up makes her feel.

"Make-up and beauty is fundamental to me as it makes me feel good, and if I feel good then I look good," she smiled.

"I don’t wake up in the morning looking like I do, but once I put my Timeless Beauty make-up on, I look at myself in the mirror and I think, 'Yes, I like what I see!'"

Her collection features make-up's most important staples like foundation, lipstick and nail polish. She's also created a skincare line, and is now branching into home fragrance with reed diffusers.

And when it comes to her own essentials, Joan knows exactly what she'd take to a desert island.

"Lipstick as it is a great multi product; you can use it on your cheeks as a blusher and as a highlighter on your cheek bones.

"Brow pencil, as it can be used as an eyeliner as well as a soft eyeshadow by smudging it a little to make a shadow around the eyes for a smoky-eye effect.

"Moisturiser as skincare is vital to me and keeping my skin youthful," she listed.
