TOWIE's barefaced beauty Lydia Bright: You don't have to be orange to look good
Lydia Bright is radiant without her slap
With make-up, there's not much difference in Lydia Bright's appearance
The brave 21-year-old says going without make-up for our exclusive photo shoot has encouraged her to tone down her look.
'When I first started out on TOWIE, I used to wear loads,' Lydia tells Now.
'I don't know whether anyone remembers my first ever appearance, but I was caked in make-up. It looked like I'd applied it with a trowel. Seriously!
'But I was 19 then and it's only when you get older that you realise you don't have to be orange to look good.'
Lydia, who's dating TOWIE co-star Tom Kilbey, 21, says she's also started taking better care of her skin.
'I drink more water and I've been using a St Ives facial scrub. Oh. My. God! It's so amazing,' she adds.
'If you look at pics of me from the past month, you'll see I've been wearing less make-up - and it's thanks to the scrub!'
