We love Maya Jama for many reasons but our latest is that she's shared a clever make-up hack that'll help create a bronzed eye look.

The presenter is abiding with the lockdown rules - like the rest of us - which means she's having to do her own make-up when she's on the TV.

Over the weekend she joked that she's going to "add MUA to my bio" after she was forced to be her own glam squad instead of her friend and actual make-up artist Letita Sophia.

On her Instagram Story she explained, "I'm not gonna lie not having my make-up artist with me has taught me some skills.

"Letish, I know you're locked down somewhere else right now but... I think I don't need you anymore!"

She then revealed her clever hack, "'Lol jk I added bronzer to my eyelids and eyeliner, that's as wild as it gets."

Err, why have we never thought of putting bronzer on our eyelids? Sorry but a smokey eye look is hard to create but now we're convinced bronzer is the answer to all out problems.

Maya's make-up artist then replied and said, "Gwan hunty you really did try with the bronzer on the eye and all sorts!

"Let's see how long the MUA life lasts!"

Last month Maya announced that she had quit her show on Radio 1, "My loveess ❤️ I've made the very difficult decision not to continue my Radio 1 contract from June.

"As you know I have been juggling & There are a lot of exciting commitments happening that would mean I'm not able to dedicate the time needed to my weekly radio show," she explained.

Maya went on to say, "I've loved every moment of my time at Radio 1 and I would like to thank the team for their hard work and friendship during the last two years.

"It’s been a JOURNEY, Thanks to all you cuties that tuned into the show every weekend, it was so great to hear that we have been getting the largest proportion of under 35s tuning in for our on-demand show on BBC Sounds. So we are going out with a bang! Love youuuuu listeners 😘😘😘😘😘".
