Helen Flanagan sends message to Michelle Keegan as she poses in £1300 suit for Netflix event

Michelle Keegan has had everyone swooning over her latest look after going ‘straight from the airport and into glam’ for a Netflix event last week. The Stockport-born actress was dubbed ‘beautiful’ by fellow ex-Corrie pal Helen Flanagan after sharing a snap with her 6.5 million Instagram followers.

The 35-year-old was off to ‘see what’s next’ event hosted by the streaming service, ahead of her appearance as Maya in Fool Me Once, the new Netflix adaptation of bestselling author Harlan Coben's book.

Sharing a carousel of photos, she captioned the post: “Suited & booted for tonight’s Netflix ‘See whats next’ event. Talking all things Fool Me Once.”

Helen was one of the first of hundreds to comment, writing: “Beautiful babe xxxx wish I was there with you and kelvs @kelvinstylist catch ups soon.”

Meanwhile, others were desperate to find out where her burgundy outfit was from, commenting: “This suit!!!”, “Where is the suit from?” and “Love this outfit! Where is it from?”

As much as we’d have hoped it may have been an affordable set from the actress’ own Very collection, the tonal tailored co-ord actually from Safiyaa London, with a retail price of £1,390. She completed the look with a Burberry dark birch brown note, also nearly £1,300.

While some were concentrating on Keeg’s outfit, others were obsessed with her makeup - and now, the Brassic star’s makeup artist, Emily Clarkson, has revealed every single product she used on Michelle for the event - including a £13 moisturiser loved by celebs.

The Manchester MUA posted similar snaps as Michelle to her own account, adding that they were shared ‘with no edit or filter’ - using a mini light attached to her mobile camera.

The artist created her look using a range of affordable mid-range beauty products from the likes of Charlotte Tilbury, Refy and MAC, as well as some drugstore lashes that cost less than £8 on Amazon.

She began the look with the Embryolisse moisturiser, which is usually £13.99 for 30ml on Lookfantastic, but is currently £13.50 for more than double the product (75ml) on Amazon, making for a huge saving. The cult-classic product is so popular, it reportedly sells one tube every 13 seconds. The six-in-one multitasking cream can even be used as a repair mask and a baby-care product.

She went on to use a number of Charlotte Tilbury products, including the £39 Hollywood Flawless Filter, mascara (£26) and £24 brow pencil.

Emily also used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Luminous Foundation to give Michelle her glowing skin. The product is currently 20 per cent off at Boots, coming in at £34.40, down from £43.

Refy Beauty is fast becoming the ‘it’ brand of 2023, with Emily using the citrine cream blush (£14), VIEVE blush in the shades pesca and sorbet - which are £23 each - and MAC Cosmetics give me sun bronzer, which is £30 at John Lewis.

Also from VIEVE was the under eye concealer and cream contour. The 100 per cent vegan and cruelty free brand was founded by fellow MUA Jamie Genevieve.

Michelle’s brows were fixed in place with the Benefit Cosmetics brow setter, with concealer set with Huda Beauty’s powder in the shade cupcake. The eyes were finished with a lick of black Illamasqua eyeliner and medium individual lashes from Ardell Beauty, which are under £8 on Amazon.

Completing the look, Emily painted Michelle’s lips with the Victoria Beckham Beauty No2 lipliner and Anastasia Beverly Hills warm peach lipstick.

Fans adored the look with some commenting on how ‘flawless’ Michelle looked. Another added: “OK that's just made me buy everything on that list.. in desperation to look nearly a quarter as beautiful as Michelle Keegan.”

Michelle will soon be back on our screens in the BBC series Ten Pound Poms filmed in Australia, which airs on Sunday, May 14 at 9pm.
