While most people watch Strictly Come Dancing for Kelvin's hip thrusts/Craig's withering take downs and Bruno's dangerously unbuttoned shirts, I tune in for something a littler different, the makeup.

As someone born with less natural rhythm than Ann Widdecombe, I'll never be able to master a Paso Doble, or a Cha, Cha, Cha, but Motsi Mabuse's sparkly eyeshadow on the other hand, that's something I definitely have the skills to recreate.

While it's rude to have favourites, out of all the Strictly dance pros, Dianne Buswell is by far my number one and while I'm not quite at the level of dying my hair red in tribute, I am incredibly invested in the contents of her makeup bag.

For those of you who may actually have a life and not spend their Saturday evening's watching David James learn the waltz (what's that like?), Dianne was a finalist in 2018's series, following which she confirmed she was in a relationship with her dance partner Joe Sugg.

Since the pair started dating, the pair have switched interests, with Dianne taking up YouTube and Joe turning his hand to acting in the West End production of Waitress.

In her latest video Dianne shared her morning routine, which not only included a workout (can't relate) but also my long awaited makeup bag contents.

While her base products were a little pricey, we're talking Chanel's Vitalumiere Foundation and Universal Bronzing Base, her favourite product actually costs less than a fiver.

"It's a cheap brand but it's my favourite," Dianne said, as she shared that Collection's Lash Surge Mascara is her ride or die.

You know what I'll be bulk buying immediately.
