Reigning Love Island queen Millie Court is everything we need in a reality star/influencer, from her #goals relationship with Welsh hunk Liam Reardon to her fashion credentials (she honestly can’t go wrong when it comes to her outfit choices), we’re quite frankly, OBSESSED.
She’s also as real as they come. Earlier this year, Millie spoke out about her struggle with adult acne.
At 23-years-old, Millie developed some pretty severe acne and after trying multiple products, and endless Googling, she sought professional help as a last resort. With a bad habit of picking spots, Millie and her skin aesthetician set on a year and a half long journey to save her skin.
In her YouTube skin series titled, Get Unready With Me, Millie shared her highly requested skin and acne journey and you can find out more about the products she chose here.
As well as revealing her veeery thorough skincare routine, Millie has also spilled all about her favourite spot-covering foundation that she uses to cover her spots (we all know foundation and spots aren’t the best of friends, but sometimes needs must).
In a new YouTube video, Millie explained that she would be trying out Dior Forever Foundation (£40) for the first time after seeing her bestie Lucinda Strafford use it in the Love Island villa and noticing that her skin ‘always looked amazing’.
Look! More news!
After realising that the shade she bought was a little too dark than what she normally wears, Millie commented, “I’m actually loving this foundation, I know it’s not the right shade, I’ve got a few spots here and it’s covered them. It’s full coverage and feels like it’s sticking to my face so I don’t feel like it’s going to go anywhere.”

Love Island's Millie's Date Night Beauty Must-Haves
'Primer is very important for prepping your face - ready for makeup. Without primer, the makeup can sink into your pores and give you spots,' Millie says.
Millie says she likes to start with her eyebrows before anything else and uses the Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint Pencil to shade in her arches.
Millie uses the shade 230 and dots it underneath her eyes, down the bridge of the nose and on the cupids bow to brighten.
Millie mixes two different shades of this multitasking foundation together to match her Love Island tan. 'It's medium coverage and it's got your SPF 50 in it which is very important.'
Millie uses this Anastasia Beverly Hills bronzer in the shade Cappuccino and applies it under the areas she's concealed to enhance and sculpt her face.
Millie uses this liquid highlighter in the shade 'Prosecco' – and applies it to the tops of her cheekbones and down the bridge of her nose.
'Personally this is my favourite part,' says Mille. She dusts the iconic blusher onto the apples of her cheeks with a round fluffy brush.
'This is stunning. I fancy this eyeshadow palette,' says Millie. She uses the shades Hypnotic, Naughty, Shameless and Desire to create a sparkly pink smoky eye.
After eyeshadow, Millie fills in her upper lash line with this creamy, black kajal liner.
'I swear by this lip gloss. Honestly I don't think I've ever worn a better lip gloss than this.'
Millie sets her makeup with the No7 fixing mist. 'This is going to make sure that even through all the snogging – your makeup stays in place,' she says.
Millie says her best trick with eyelashes is to leave the glue for about a minute – sometimes even two – to leave it to go super tacky before applying them.
Millie finishes her look with a hefty spritz of Marc Jacobs Daisy Love. 'I'm gonna cake this on,' she says.

Earlier this month, Millie was forced to shut down speculation that she was pregnant after posting an inspirational post on International Women’s Day where she felt at her “most vulnerable”.
However, some comments (intrusive ones) asked Millie if she could be pregnant, as she later took to her story to explain that she is not pregnant, but she is sick of being torn apart, especially as she’s well aware she has "put on weight" since Love Island doesn't think it’s a bad thing.
Quoting some the comments, Millie wrote, "I've been getting a lot of these messages and comments recently..."
"NO, I am not pregnant although one day hopefully I will be and I'm sure it'll be one of the happiest days of my life but being a woman, especially in the public eye, I've now experienced what it's like to be absolutely torn apart by the way you look, dress, act etc and it can be hard on someone to be constantly judged."
