If you were one of the many people who watched Channel 4 drama It's A Sin (and you're still sobbing into a cushion days/weeks/months later), you'll recognise Lydia West, the actress who played Ritchie's lovable best friend, Jill.
It's one of those shows that never leaves you once you've watched it, thanks to the brilliantly written script and heart-wrenching acting. What's even more heartbreaking is that the show's creator Russell T Davies has confirmed there will be no season 2, GAH!
Which leaves us with no other option but to stalk the amazing cast's IG accounts and wait for them to announce their next TV role. Lydia West, one of few females in a male-heavy cast, is a particular joy to follow (that smile, those ringlets), so imagine my delight when I came across a beauty interview with Who What Wear, in which she listed ALL of her beauty must-haves. I die.
As far as skincare goes, she's all about the Kiehl's (if she's not already an ambassador she bloody well should be), listing products such as the Kiehl’s Avocado Nourishing Hydrating Mask, £36 and Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, £40 ). Her other go-to products include the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick, £20 and This Works Sleep balm, £12.
And it turns out Lydia has some ride-or-die curl products too, which we think you'll agree is very exciting news considering how beautiful her ringlets are. She loves the Imbue range (designed for kinks, curls and coils), and the Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream, £24.45. But when asked what she would choose if she could only use three products for the rest of her life, she named the Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner, £17.18 (alongside toothpaste and Akt deodorant).
Hands up who just went into the red buying all of Lydia's beauty faves? 🙋♀️
